Treefingers: Hou Hsiao-Hsien

Some reflections on Hou Hsiao-Hsien’s gorgeous Flowers of Shanghai over at ProjectTreefingers. I look briefly at the way that inanimate objects take on a special force, as well as at the subtle control of mood in the film.

Treefingers: Aleksandr Sokurov

I have just posted an essay on Sokurov’s Mother and Son (a magnificent film) on ProjectTreefingers. I discuss the way the film blurs boundaries and edges to create a sense of intimacy and in-betweenness.

Treefingers: Béla Tarr

I have a new essay on Béla Tarr’s The Turin Horse and Werckmeister Harmonies over at projecttreefingers.
