#861: Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema

Sorry this is up late(r than usual on Fridays); Punk had a vet appointment, and he, unlike most cats, does not have his driver’s license, so I have to ferry him everywhere. It’s quite a hassle. (For the curious: He is doing great, but needs to eat more.)

The title of this comes from an enormously influential feminist film essay/paper/whatever by Laura Mulvey, originally published in Screen back in 1975. You can read it online here.

Trailer Watch: The Theory of Everything trailer

Friday, August 15, 2014

There’s no telling how the film will turn out, but the trailer for The Theory of Everything impressed me by having a respectably balanced focus on both the life of Stephen Hawking (and relationship with his first wife) and the work he is so admired for, unlike so many other film biographies of so-called Great Men.

James Marsh (Man on Wire) directs Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones in the November 7th release.
