QUAD-o-RAMA: Monster On The Campus (1958)

Absorb the essence of this neglected film in less than 8 minutes !!

Quad-O-Rama™:  In order to match the cacophonous assault of today’s films, older films can be truncated (all the boring parts are deleted), and then cut in to 4 equal sections to be displayed simultaneously.  Hence, a standard length film can be displayed in 10 minutes or less, but still retain coherence to the original.

Hot town, summer in the City…

Released by the Lovin’ Spoonful in the summer of 1966 (a lifetime ago!), Summer in the City remains etched in my youthful memory.  Who can forget lyrics like “Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty…” clearly sung by John Sebastian?  I know I can’t.  Did you know that Joe Cocker covered the song in the 1990s?  Neither did I.

crossing the Richmond – San Rafael Bridge

May 23, 2019:  shot in time-lapse mode on my iPhone, crossing into Marin County, after sunset, on the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge.   The bridge opened in 1956, but has always been overshadowed by its more famous neighbors:  the Bay Bridge and the Golden Gate Bridge.

Cuarón, Roma (trailer), Pink Floyd

This is a beautiful film, gorgeously photographed in black & white, casual and breathtaking at the same time, impeccably choreographed, alive with the mystery that is life.  Yeah, I really liked it.  Best to see it on the big screen.  This trailer just appeared to remind me of the films transcendent greatness.  The Pink Floyd music (not used in the actual film) really sells it.
