Cliff Curtis, Gracija Filipović: Murina (Kino Lorber)

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

Murina. “Combines fervent ideas, literary-style symbolism, and an enthusiasm—almost a hunger—for transforming idiosyncratic locations and people into cinematic landscapes.”

I have a new episode of “The Music and the Movies”: Elvis! We track the dispiriting film career of Elvis Presley, with a nod to Baz Luhrmann’s new Elvis, and include some of the best songs of that run, plus a couple of clinkers. Check that at the Voice of Vashon website. If the Elvis link has expired, see what else is there.
