Movies at the Burton
If you live in or around Detroit and you have not visited the Burton Theatre, you are doing yourself a great disservice. The Burton Theatre is an up and coming art house on the edge of Wayne State’s campus and Chinatown on Cass. It’s named after the building in which it uses, the former Burton International School. To me, there are few things cooler than what is going on at the...

My Month with Brakhage
On Wednesday night, I completed my viewing of all the films in the Criterion Collection anthology of Stan Brakhage’s work (just in time for them to release another set!). It was admittedly a little sad, as I truly enjoy having such a fairly large collection of one’s work. With any art, I enjoy watching a group or individual artist grow and change. Whether its in a way that I agree...

stagnantpond: You can find this Stan Brakhage film on youtube, although I’m not sure how great the quality is. To truly enjoy and understand Stan Brakhage (and this is a problem, as far as access goes), its best to watch it on a TV screen in a pitch black room.

Autopsies are not so great.
Yesterday was the first time that I could not get through watching a Stan Brakhage film. It was his half hour long film called “The Act of Seeing with One’s Own Eyes.” It’s about autopsies. It is just a half hour of autopsy work. Nothing more, nothing less. I got through the first ten minutes with a lot of flinching, trying to be quiet as I feel one must be in silence when...

While I plan on writing and working on several film projects over the summer, I also plan on doing stuff that’s more recreational. I’ve divided it into months. You all care, I know. At least, I pretend. This month, I plan to watch every film on the Stan Brakhage Anthology Criterion DVD. Shouldn’t take a month, but I can’t remember how many films on there. Any who, one...

I plan on beginning and am hoping to finish several short films and various projects over the coming summer. I’m currently halfway through a first draft of a script based off of a David Berman poem called “Classic Water.” David Berman is known for leading the band Silver Jews, which was often considered a Pavement side project because of the on-and-off member, Stephen Malkmus. It...

The Power of Music in Film

emilysyrja: uprightcitizens: christielouwho: boyghost: I take great issue with the role of women as a subject in modern photography. I see a lot of this type of photograph on the internet, and it is somewhat disheartening to find it so glorified. You know the type: a fay, ethereal creature existing in a world of soft-light and glitter, with lips pouted and pigeon-toed feet, with impossible...
