Don't blame me. It was the music.



And a live CD is planned for November, and soon after the live DVD.

Heads up regarding some Lon Chaney flicks on Turner Classic Movies tonight. After The Phantom of the Opera and Lon Chaney: A Thousand Faces, they're showing both versions of the little-seen crime chiller The Unholy Three (starting at 2:15 a.m. Central). The silent 1925 original, directed by Tod Browning, follows the 1930 remake directed by Jack Conway. In both, Chaney plays a former sideshow ventriloquist who masquerades as a kindly old grandmother to front a vicious crime ring. Since neither is available on video or DVD, this is a rare opportunity. My VCR is set.

Darwin's Nightmare, Hubert Sauper's documentary on globalization that made countless Top 10's last year but hasn't yet been released on DVD, airs on Sundance tomorrow at 1:45EST. Should be interesting.

I thought it was awful. But don't let that dissuade you.

I don't doubt that. I have never had much of a strong affinity with A.O. Scott, who seemed to be its greatest cheerleader.

In partnership with the house of Herm?s, TCM presents Behind the Camera: The Shorts Circuit, a 24-hour salute to the art of short filmmaking, highlighted by the premieres of six shorts by acclaimed contemporary directors - Peter Gilbert, Griffin Dunne, E. Elias Merhige, Mario Van Peebles, Floria Sigismondi and Mary Sweeney - who were invited by Herm?s to create works especially for the festival. Each film, in its own way, pays homage to classic filmmaking.



The festival also features the TCM premieres of shorts by David Lynch, Martin Scorsese, Stanley Kubrick, Ridley Scott, Fran?ois Truffaut, Roman Polanski and others; as well as works by such classic filmmakers as Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, George Stevens, Jean Negulesco and Fred Zinnemann.




Check out TCM on September 15. The entire day is loaded with unmissable material, from La Jetee to Hitchcock's WWII shorts to Polanski's terrific Two Men and a Wardrobe. I've already seen those--actually, I've seen about half of the day's offerings, including all of the Polanski, Truffaut, and Lynch titles--but I'm excited to finally lay eyes upon those Scorsese shorts and a few of the sound Keatons I haven't caught up with yet.

Oh my. I need to stock up on VHS tapes for recording (or better yet, get a DVD recorder).

So what shorts are you gonna watch on TCM?



I'm gonna be recording Don Siegel's Star in the Night, Chris Marker's La Jetee, the Hermes shorts, and all the shorts by Lynch, Scorsese, Kubrick, Campion, and Polanski. According to TCM's schedule, that's about six hours worth of stuff, most of which I haven't seen. I can always catch up with the Chaplin and Keaton shorts on DVD (a few I've already seen), and the other stuff doesn't interest me as much as what I plan to record. I'd like to check out most of it, but I don't have time to sit around all day swapping tapes in and out my VCR.

I set my standalone DVD recorder to record all day. Lots of it I've seen already, and the rest I'll probably wander through. (I'll probably end up transferring a good portion from the HD onto disc to keep, though.)



Right now, I'm probably most interested in the Hermes collection and the Scorsese titles. La Jetee is most likely the finest offering all day, since it is, after all, one of the greatest movies, of any length, ever made.

Heads up: Martin Scorsese on Conan Tuesday night, October 3rd. I hope he gets to talk awhile.

For all the Wisconsinites:



Don't forget that the Milwaukee International Film Festival has begun. Last night was the opening film--The Queen--and tonight the fest really starts rolling. It continues until Sunday, October 29.



Thank goodness I have a wife who understands why this stuff is important to me--although she does refer to herself as a "cinema widow" during festival week.

Oh how I wish I could attend. What's worse, I'll be gone for the Wisconsin Film Festival in Madison this spring!



Though I am hoping to take a documentary filmmaking class next semester, so it'll all balance out in the end.
