Because I've been trying to keep busy sightseeing, meeting up with friends and all that, I wasn't able to find much time to give last week's artistic consumption log my usual annotations. So once again, here's a barebones accounting of what I consumed artistically this week. As you can imagine, it's a rather, um, lean list...but a good one, for the most part.
|The legendary Castro Theatre in San Francisco|
★ A Face in the Crowd (1957, Elia Kazan), seen at Stanford Theatre in Palo Alto, Calif.
★ Black Narcissus (1947, Michael Powell & Emeric Pressburger), seen at Castro Theatre in San Francisco [third viewing]
★ The Red Shoes (1948, Michael Powell & Emeric Pressburger), seen at Castro Theatre in San Francisco [second viewing]
