Bits and Bites: Quick Update

October 20th, 2007 (01:25 pm)

So, from Twitch (and I really need to find their new RSS feed): a short, slightly bizarre interview with Park Chan-wook.

He seems inclined to change the name of Evil Live to something else (awwww). But I like that it's

a very very sad and tragic melodrama about a vampire who has fallen madly in love with a married woman.

Even if it's not a traditional vampire story... well, maybe not, but I can live with that. It's Park Chan-wook.

He's also working on producing the French sci-fi graphic novel Le Transperceneige for Bong Joon-ho(!). English title is currently The Snow Piercer, and plans are to start shooting it in 2010.

Also - got the Kino catalog in the mail today.


Lots of things of interest; probably the biggest is that they're releasing a 2-DVD edition of Battleship Potemkin on 23 October, and Turner will be showing that reissue on Sunday, 21 October.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

And lastly, the Pordenone Silent Film Weekend is going on at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. It's a short festival, so get there now.

I'm sorry I missed the recently rediscovered first Lon Chaney (Sr) film, Poor Jake's Demise. That would have been more than worth it, sleep-deprived or not.

Okay, back to finishing up reviews for you lot.
