Hi guys!

World Forgot told me about Xixax and it sounded like the coolest place on the interweb!

PTA is basically my cinema dad. My fashion icon is Doc Sportello and the voice in my head kinda sounds like Sortilege. I'm also an aspiring filmmaker and love surfing, auto racing, and football (soccer). Hope to chat with you all in the future!

Gábor Bódy's Psyché  (1980), starring Udo Kier. Getting an English-subtitled Hungarian DVD release



Based on Sándor Weöres’s epic poem, the film is a fantastic vision, a visual time travel, the encyclopaedic debut film of the postmodern era. Gábor Bódy connected the love of Erzsébet Lónyay, a gipsy countess of the 18th century, and László Ungvárnémeti Tóth, an ill-fated playwright, with the story of baron Zedlitz, the fantast. Behind this love triangle, he unfolds the intellectual history of a century and a half, from the Enlightenment to the nineteen-twenties.

Quote from: Letterboxd user rischka
a psychedelic tour de force spanning more than a century between the napoleonic wars and world war two, in which the title characters never age and carry on a love affair that is never consummated, across time and distance. clouds rush by, stars track across the sky, scenes from a bohemian life race headlong toward doom.

Looks to be a bit too beholden to Mike Nichols' version, but Nichols' version was a masterpiece, and probably the main reason Clooney even wanted to do this, so I can't exactly blame them for it. Anyway, I'll watch it.

This Year In Film / Re: High Flying Bird

pretty good.  sodergergh's technique in this has that youthful exuberance of a student film which fizzles out.  WAY better looking than unsane but about the same tier in terms of overall quality.  his projects since the knick (RIP) really only register as mildly entertaining though the conviction of his style seems to grow in resolve.  i guess there are less tragic trajectories to have peaked with behind the candelabra and the knick in the back nine of one's career but he seemed to be evolving during that time, and the last four felt like he made them in his sleep.
