Wisconsin Death Trip Wisconsin Death Trip directed by …

Written by Jim Knipfel on . Posted in Arts & Film, Posts

When Michael Lesy’s thesis-turned-cult classic Wisconsin Death Trip was published in 1973, it was quite unlike anything anyone had ever seen before. It doesn’t sound like much–just a collection of old photographs taken around Black River Falls, WI, between 1885 and 1899–coupled with news clippings from the local paper. But the photographs–of farmers, uncomfortable-looking families, [&hellip

Beyond Beyond The Clouds Directed by Michelangelo Antonioni …

Written by Godfrey Cheshire on . Posted in Arts & Film, Posts

Media reality being as daunting as it is at the moment, let us transfer a few of its perplexities to a science fiction story. The premise, scary but marvelous: The planet of cinema has exploded.

It’s probably most readily available in Parallel Lives, Phyllis Rose’s 1983 study of five idiosyncratic Victorian marriages. Briefly, Gray left Ruskin–more or less for the Pre-Raphaelite painter John Everett [&hellip
