For those that missed it, the Mayfair had two screenings of the original that I did get to see. There was something mesmerizing about seeing it in theatre again. The stock has aged slightly of course. The colours are muted yet far more crisp, adding a sense of greater reality to the whirlwind technicolour carnival some scenes convey. Dust, scratches, and cigarette burns are things the DVD just can't do for you. In the case of a movie I have seen 167 times it had me spellbound as if seeing it for the first time.
So, yeah, I have a wonderful artist profile on the slab at the moment. All these fun distractions are dragging out the dissection and I must to get to her before she rots! Cuz as any journalist knows, a good interview is a lot like an autopsy: You gotta start with a big Y.
