This film blew away my pals and me the first time we saw it in New York. It's showing here once again at the IFC center, appropriately at midnight tonight and tomorrow.
They've also got a couple Greenaway's on tap. Grady Hendrix has a fine appreciation of the director in the New York Sun this morning:
"Cinema, basically, is an illustration of the 19th-century novel," says British director Peter Greenaway, sweeping 100 years of film history off the table and into the dustbin. "The narrative schemes at the end of the 20th Century in cinema haven't developed much more than D.W. Griffith's."
It would be interesting to read what Greenaway might say about El Topo, a crazy violent film that reaches back to Old and New Testaments wearing surreal glasses.
