A DAY OF SITTING DOWN TOO LONG
In the past week I have sat for a couple of hours here and there watching movies, and a TV episode...
El Mariachi (1992) - As good as ever; launched a career.
The Living End (1992) - My first viewing of Gregg Araki's breakthrough flick; not my 'arena', exactly, but a very good film. Years ago I saw the director's Totally Fucked Up (1993).
Metropolis (1927) - That was easily my sixth or seventh time seeing Fritz Lang's uber-epic, but my first time with the 'full version'; even more terrific; great score!
UFO episode "Confetti Check A-OK" (1971) - Outstanding; reminded and convinced me that another series/season of that show should have been made instead of initiating the feeble series Space: 1999.
