    Where I Buried Him

    Hey all,

    I put together a short piece recently and I figured I'd share it rather than just sit on it. I might share more pieces every once in a while if I feel confident enough. You can find it here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=rfmofDutyJs.

    MY 3,000TH FILM

    I figured there would be no better candidate for film #3,000 than a film about film that was lightly embarrassing for me to have not seen by now. Close Up is every bit as arresting and affecting as its reputation claims. A lot of Kiarostami's strengths really come to fruition here. It's his murkiest film in regards to being fiction/non-fiction and contain several long takes that entrance the viewer with excellent dialogue and performance. Sabzian is a…

    My 2,000th Film!!!

    I feel dumb for putting this film off so long because I found myself impressed by every scene. The writing and sound editing feel so organic. I feel as if I know these people even without showing me a great amount of exposition or direct characterization. The archetypes feel universal. These characters are a part of my family, and perhaps every family.Β 

    The film has the density and the visual brilliance that it feels like a movie…
