Things I want to write about, given world enough (or time)

  • Matthew Barney's Cremaster cycling through the red states. C1's playing in Boise, where it was shot (and Barney's hometown), and C3 has apparently won the Strangest Movie Shown In Nashville Award. (Heads up, bootleggers: The Tennessean's Kevin Nance has a screener tape!)
  • Gerry reviewed in the Guardian ("If you can imagine Dude, Where's my Car? by Samuel Beckett"). Casey Affleck writes about working--as an actor, editor, and writer--with Gus Van Sant. Net net, this means the DVD is still years away, I guess...
  • Film, Samuel Beckett's only screenplay (besides the aforementioned DWMC?), in which a man (Buster Keaton) is pursued by an only occasionally perceived camera. Film at The Modern World. Up to 30 of you can buy it on VCD from the Czech Republic. via Dublog
  • One 9/11 pseudo-docu too many, reviewed and excoriated in the Voice. (Still, it's a good argument for getting HBO; this horrible-sounding Bushagiography is on Showtime.) Related: Gail Sheehy's impressive Observer article about the WTC widows who are holding the administration's obfuscatory feet to the fire over details of the 9/11 AM timeline.
  • The Hirshhorn Museum, reviewed by Tyler Green of Modern Art Notes fame.

  • Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

    Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
