Movie Passions Betrayed

[via GreenCine] Wim Wenders' official 4h45m version of Until the End of the World will be released on DVD next spring. David's excellent, slightly ecstatic discussion of the release annoucement betrays a diehard fan's passion about this almost-mythical cut of the film. (For the rest of the world: Wenders' epic-to-be was subjected to drastic and problematic guts/cuts that rendered it a disappointing and confusing, both in terms of story and box office. Wenders and his editor spent a year of their own time, after the film was released, "finishing" his version, which has been seen only rarely. Until next spring, anyway.)

[via my site logs]'s first TypePad referrer links come from Persistence of Vision, a smart new weblog about independent film, evidently created by a fellow New Yorker who doesn't explain much about him/herself onsite, but betrays an obvious passion and familiarity with the film world. Welcome (and thanks for the link).

Since 2001 here at, 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 that time.
