  • Eraserhead



    4k restoration undertaken by the Criterion Collection and David Lynch, screened at the North Park Theatre in Buffalo, NY. My appreciation for the sound design and mixing is newfound.

  • Alien³



    Assembly cut. Compelling ideas and drama, but a bit too long. I'm not so bothered by the nihilistic opening -- this is, after all, horror, and Ripley losing her reason to keep on living makes a compelling contrast to the rapists and murderers who have devoted their lives to God and the possibility of salvation. The latter half of the film bogs the rest down unfortunately.
