New "Art of Film" Forumgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Aeon Flux : One Thread
Just so I can keep my long-winded rants on film topics away from people who might not want to hear it, I've created a separate forum on this server called "The Art of Film". It works exactly as this forum does. Anyone who would possibly be interested in discussing filmmaking topics, especially stuff related to Peter Chung's work and similarly expressive ventures is invited to come over and chat.

Hey, Mat, no need to be long winded, just do many short posts, soon you'll be over 500....waiting for a movie does cause a little bit of anxiety you know.

Good of you to provide a way of branching out into broader discussions on your new forum. Since I've pretty much exhausted my desire to discuss Aeon Flux (especially since making progress on my new feature project-- my new character makes Aeon look downright old-fashioned), I'll toss out a favorite topic which I've often brought up, but haven't talked about in detail, namely David Lynch.
And please, no questions about my new project-- yet.

Thanks for coming to the forum, Peter. :)

Never thought one day I'd carry a torch for an animated girl.

However, Peter, I really liked your girl Holly, and hated to see her cessation. I really like your artistic creations and I can't wait for the unveiling. Makes Aeon look old fashioned? That's sure a difficult statement to not respond to..

What timing. I've been meaning to buy The Straight Story for a while now. I guess I have no excuse for putting that off anymore. I'll have a reaction to that posted in a few days. Until then: Lynch is the only English-speaking director I'm a fan of that NONE of my friends like. Unlike, say, Stanley Kubrick or the Cohen Brothers, whom anyone could enjoy, you almost have to learn an entirely different method of approaching film before you can appreciate his movies (or to hear it from some, to even tolerate them.) It wasn't until I learned about psychogenic fugue and moebius strips that Lost Highway started to become clear.
