Regis Myupu: The Fever (KimStim Films)

My piece for the Scarecrow blog this week, and etc.

The Fever/This Is Not a Burial, It’s a Resurrection. “With its soundscape of insects and rainfall, and its keen eye for lived-in interiors and fluorescent-lit urban in-between spaces, The Fever is, minute-by-minute, a compelling experience.”

Join us for this week’s session in Scarecrow Academy, as we continue our free online discussion series, “The Art in Noir: Film Noir and the Director,” with a look at John Huston’s The Asphalt Jungle. We convene Saturday, March 27, at 2 p.m. Pacific Time, via Zoom; the event is free. I say more about the film here:

Eighties action continues this week at my other website, What a Feeling!, where I revive vintage reviews of these 1980s pictures: Steven Kovacs’s ’68, a coming-of-page movie with a Neil Young performance and a cinematographer with an amazing CV; Martin Brest’s Midnight Run, a buddy-movie hit with Robert De Niro and Charles Grodin; Stewart Raffill’s now-legendary McDonald’s tie-in camp classic Mac and Me; Gary Sinise’s Miles from Home, a farmbelt cri de coeur with Richard Gere; and Maximilian Schell’s Marlene, a documentary portrait of Dietrich, for which the star refused to appear on camera.
