Bits & pieces

(on La libertad, briefly) by Robert Koehler at Indiewire
Unfinished Diary Las Palmas '09 (on Liverpool, briefly) by Adrian Martin at Rouge

There's also an article by James Quandt in Artforum called Ride Lonesome (presumably about Liverpool, Nov 2008), which I haven't read yet...

Anything else that you could dig up would be great!

HarryTuttle said...

Thanks. I added your links.

Michael Guillen said...

As ever, an invaluable service, Harry. I'm looking forward to Alonso's Northwest Film Forum retrospective come mid-November. I'll be speaking with him again then.

Michael Guillen said...

Also, Quandt's "Ride Lonesome" essay is essential. An edited version of that article is in the current Cinematheque Ontario calendar and the Artforum piece in its entirety can be accessed through the Highbeam Research Library. I have it on Word if you'd like me to forward it to you.

Matthew Flanagan said...

Yes please, Maya! Will save me photocopying it. E-mail me through my profile...

HarryTuttle said...

I would like to read it too. Please send it over. I need the complete reference to put it up on the list. If you have the direct Highbeam link I can add it too.
