I'm so thankful I was able to see this restoration on the big screen, in 4k no less.
First I want to say that you have become my favorite contributor to this site. It seems like most of the articles I find myself clicking on have your name at the top. So thank you for that.
But in case it hasn't been pointed out already, I believe there is a factual error in this article. At the end of the intro, it looks like you implied that Robert Bresson directed Un Chien Andalou. I imagine this was just a slip up and you know who directed what!
Otherwise, another great article, and some great films to put on my list.
I can't wait for the day that an iphone can shoot 4k raw, and there's a whole market for different camera bodies with image stabilization, tons of battery power, swappable mounts, mic preamps etc.
that sounds awesome
I like this advice. I may try that myself.
Read Lolita, or watch the movie. It's kind of the reverse of the synopsis you posed here. It could spark something for you.
Also I like the advice of "go for a walk". For me personally, leaving my phone and gadgets at home and going on a long walk in the woods with a pack of smokes does a lot to get my gears turning.
