Mr. Arkadin, I've done a fairly thorough search of Alejandro Jodorowsky the last few days. I am still trying to figure out how never heard of Alejandro Jodorowsky. Anyway, I saw a video on YouTube of Jodorowsky's film Santa Sangre . The video was a composite of Santa Sangre stills accompanied by som...

Hello, Right now, all my time is taken up keeping tabs on a developer who is about to ruin my neighborhood and I'm making sure he files for all required permits...including a 404 permit allowing him to ruin a beautiful wetland (actually a very nice stream). I was hoping those huge birds nesting down...

Hello, I can pinpoint the moment when I became 100 percent cynical...if the subject was people in the United States and conservation of energy, water, land and other valuable resources. Several years ago, I was watching an episode of "This Old House". I think everybody reading this message has watch...

Hello, Reading the title El Topo a couple of times (this topic) forced me to look the thing up on IMDB. I don't know how I never heard of that Jodorowsky fellow...boy, does he sound like a weird person. Based on the IMDB reviews I read of El Topo , the movie sounds like Sergio Leone passed through L...

Hello, Well, it took me a week to find that book I bought two years ago...The Children's Corner by Jackson Tippet McCrae. A collection of short stories. I bought the book because I read a one sentence review of one of the stories. The story reviewed piqued my interest and I bought the book. I don't ...

Hello, Not the only reason, but a big reason is...the United States is still the biggest consumer of petroleum in the world, but the United States does not have the biggest need for petroleum. The United States is not the country willing to pay the highest price for petroleum. I don't know for a fac...

Larry, I'm going off topic here, but I've wondered for the longest time... I remember hearing a news item several years ago...one or two west Canada provinces, probably British Columbia and Yukon, wanted to secede from Canada. The folks living in western Canada were so fed up with the government in ...

moira, Bob le Flambeur is number ten disk in my Netflix queue. Le Cercle Rouge is said to be a remake of Rififi ...another item of interest included with the Rififi disk.

I don't know...I kind of feel sorry for The Queen. I know...the royal family has big incomes and castles and estates and manicured gardens and servants and jewels and nice clothes and top of the heap educations. Thinking about The Queen, I am forced to think...what would it be like to go your entire...

Anne, Thank you for your "right on the nickel" message. I can pinpoint the moment I discovered how important most American citizens regard American politics and American politicians. Not that anyone (except me) cares...the year was 1974 and the month was August. I was 19 years old. After two years o...

Hitchcock snubbed by cohorts?

Hello, Do you remember the TCM short bit about Alfred Hitchcock? The between movie thing that includes a nasty Hitchcock comment from a movie director named Andre de Toth? Mr. de Toth says something like, "Hitchcock was fat...lazy...and failed to live up to the promise of his early films..." Wow. I ...

Hello John, Reading your reasons for not liking The Blair Witch Project reminds me...the first time I watched the thing, my wife left the living room (television location) about an hour into the movie and did not return until Blair Witch over. The second time I watched the movie by myself. Obviously...
