Long gone are Kurosawa, Renoir, and Fellini. Two other film directors - two of the twentieth century's most enigmatic - have died this week. Michelangelo Antonioni directed two of my most favourite films, Blow Up and L'Avventura. Paul Schrader, film director and screenwriter of 'Taxi Driver' has an appraisal of Ingmar Bergman.
"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was." - Molly Ivins 1944-2007
THIS IS ME...
... I blog from BURLINGTON, VERMONT. I'm a hustler about civic engagement & social action and I'll make publicity against a world that degrades and shames whatever way I can. Joy!
