Thrills, Chills, and Uhmmm I don't know


Screening for weekend:

1.) Psycho (Alfred Hitchcok, 1960) - self explanatory (duh!)

2.) Michael (Carl Th. Dreyer, 1924) - apparently one of the earliest queer films

3.) Knife in the Water (Roman Polanski, 1962) - first feature film of Polanski, can't wait! It is considered as one of the best debut films of a director, alongside with Orson Welles' (1941), Francois Trufaut's Citizen KaneThe 400 Blows (1959), Jean-Luc Godard's Breathless (1960)


Reading list to fulfill my cinephilic desires, mostly on traditions in cinema:

1.) French Film: Text and Contexts edited by Susan Hayward and Ginette Vincendeau

2.) Italian Film by Marcia Landy

3.) Third World film making and the West by Roy Armes


Events, parties, meet-ups to fill gaps of time:

----Friday night is U.P. Fair with some very close friends.
