Things that are making Thursday A-OK.

  1. The current issue of the LA Weekly.

    (a) David Thomson has a lovely essay on a childhood viewing of Olivier's Henry V.

    (b) Scott Foundas introduces me to Super Happy Fun and Five Minutes to Live (you mean I can get a DVD copy of Sam Fuller's notorious White Dog? Best!).

    (c) The Weekly adds to the sea of Lunar Park-related Bellis profiles... and it's actually pretty good.

  2. New Kanye West.

  3. This factoid:
    When Marcello, the titular character in The Conformist, is given the phone number of the man he must assassinate, that was Jean-Luc Godard's real home number.

  4. Tomorrow's Friday.

The Marcello factoid blows my mind.
Just realized that Dominique Sanda, in addition to playing Anna in "The Conformist", was also in De Sica's "Garden of the Finzi-Continis" and Bresson's "Une Femme Douce", all in the same year.
