Sort of Busy Linky

The sort of busy where netball is delayed by 90 minutes and I think “awesome, I can stay in the office another 90 minutes!”

  1. In my opinion, it would be huge shame to watch those Tarkovsky movies online. They’re visually astounding, and watching them in a visually degraded format with a sizable watermark does them no justice at all.

    It reminds me of David Lynch talking about people who think they’ve really seen a movie when they’ve watched it on “a fucking telephone.”

  2. Nice call Pearce.

    At the very least go hire Mirror somewhere and let your wife-to-be pass out with boredom on a New Year’s Eve while you witness the single most beautiful scene in cinema history.

    Oh wait…

  3. Mirror is pretty awesome, if you can take the glacial pacing. There’s one shot that’s just of trees moving in the breeze that haunted me for weeks afterwards – I can’t point to exactly what it was about it.
