I just saw Crin Blanc, which was spectacular. The editing is amazing, and several times I wondered how the #$%@ did he get that shot?!?

I have also taken steps to get Yuri Norshteyn's films (on DVD) into my possession – thanks for the tip.

Happened to see Billy Wilder's "The Apartment". Some very interesting minimalist composition--particularly at the beginning. Worth a look.

pretty amazing, the last shot especially, very sad.
the dvd of norshteyn's work is pretty nice, wish i had it.

i love the apartment, one of my favourite films, especially the miesian/som interiors and how he shot them, surely an influence on structural film - snow and gehr, even if they weren't familiar with it.

i have some other lists

Thanks for a very splendid blog concept.
All of the films you mention seem very interesting (I was a bit surprised to find Disney films there, but why not). Some of them are familiar to me, others not. I just bought a DVD-box consisting of films by Ozu. Will be interesting to watch.

i like those old disney films, want to start adding more, like fantasia with fischinger's contributions.
that ozu set is great...
thanks for the comment.
