Bruno Ganz: The American Friend

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

Loving Highsmith. “It’s not a definitive documentary, but it is more insightful, I think, than many such docu-portraits.”

We continue our free online semester of Scarecrow Academy tomorrow (11/19) at 2 pm Pacific Time, with more “Science Fiction and the Director.” Join our Zoom conversation for some talk about M. Night Shyamalan’s Signs – and yes, I will be going to bat for this sometimes maligned filmmaker. Check the registration form here.

It’s a repeat episode of “The Music and the Movies” this week: Marlon Brando music. Come for A Streetcar Named Desire and On the Waterfront, stay for One-Eyed Jacks. Listen via the Voice of Vashon website.
