Comments

Thank you to Sight & Sound for ensuring my eternal damnation – for leaving out Ozu’s Tokyo Story, Peckinpah’s The Wild Bunch, Resnais’ Je T’aime, Je T’aime, Lang’s M, Vertov’s Man with a Movie Camera, Fassbender’s Fear Eats the Soul, Dreyer’s The Passion of Joan of Arc, Hitchcock’s Vertigo, Romero’s Night of the Living Dead, and many, many others. I know I’m going straight to movie hell. Sadly, this, as Hyman Roth so sagely put it, is the business we’ve chosen.
