MEMENTO: COMING SOON

I'll be starting a new feature very soon, entitled Memento, which will turn the spotlight onto individual contributions to some classic movies. This may be in the form of an outstanding performance, magisterial photography, a great soundtrack or maybe some truly inspired set design. I'll also include accounts of some of the premiere theatrical screenings I've been privileged to attend, and sneak in some of the great gigs I've been to and some classic albums in my collection.

So, If you're into Cronenberg's CRASH, HEAVEN'S GATE, ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA, Dario Argento, The Clash, Pam Grier, Laura Dern, Irene Jacob, Roman Polanski, Gillian Anderson, The Exorcist, Daria Nicolodi, The Who, James Woods, David Bowie, Oasis and many more... well, stay tuned. I'll kick this one off just as soon as I emerge from a particularly fraught period at work.

  5. Brilliant concept! Love to see when the spotlight is shown on individuals who don't always get their due--composers, editors, cinematographers, even actors. Look forward to reading.
