Mineshaft Gap

It's a screening log, no more no less. Maybe I'll have something interesting to say one of these days...


With the festival coming up I am swamped at work, but I have had a chance to watch these movies:

A Nightmare on Elm Street 2-4 (Various, 1980s)

Sad schlok after a decent first flick.

The Passenger (Antonioni, 1975)

Antonioni's 1975 masterpiece is a brilliant and challenging film that is engaging without ever fully embracing it's thriller trappings. Nicholson proves again why in the 1970s he truly mattered as Antonioni's camera wanders through the wreckag of his life. The celebrated final shot is perhaps the best single shot in the history of the cinema, both bringing the film full circle and giving it its only satisfying ending without ever seeming trite.
