This is a blog about movies: new films in the theaters, classics you may cherish, and small diamonds you may not have found yet.  It is also about the culture of cinema.  For centuries, the old masters and the young guns – Leonardo, Titian, Rembrandt, Rubens, Van Gogh, Rockwell, Wyeth, Warhol – created their renderings of life on single canvases. Beginning in the 1900′s, a different set of old masters and young guns – Chaplin, Ford, Hawks, Wyler (& Wilder), Coppola, Spielberg, Scorsese – created their renderings of life on two-hour long canvases, and took we the viewer into different parts of our world, and worlds that exist solely in the mind.  Movies are our modern art; the video store is our Louvre, our National Gallery.

  1. David, this is the first time that I’ve visited your site. I love what you write about these films. Thank you, thank you! I would love to be a fly on the wall if you and Hannah could talk about the impact and relevancy of art on society and society on art. blessings on you, Nance

  2. David – I bookmarked your site a long time ago and just got around to reading it today. (It’s been VERY slow at work so I’m cleaning out folders.) I LOVE IT! I also love that you do old movies as well as new ones. Keep up the stellar work! Blessings, Celeste
