Why is Listen Up Philip premiering in Canberra? There’s literally nothing there. I didn’t even know they had a cinema. I’d have flown to Melbourne for the premiere but Canberra is a trip of boredom I don’t want to make. Unless… this is Alex Ross Perry testing my resolve before setting foot in the cinema. I’d rather it didn’t have a premiere and was released in theatres already. I’ve waited more than two years for his next film. He’s forever tormenting me.
Anonymous said: Five favorite German film?
I don’t really enjoy lists that don’t include at least fifty films and even then I feel like I’m excluding so many films. After much deliberation my five would be… Metropolis (1927), Nosferatu (1922), Das Boot (1981), Ali: Fear Eats the Soul (1974) and Wings of Desire (1987) / Paris, Texas (1984).
- I’m rounding up to ten… To Be Or Not To Be (1942), Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans (1927), Triumph of the Will (1935), M (1931), Aguirre, the Wrath of God (1972).
I’m making this experimental short film for my major project about the beginning and end of relationships. I’d love to hear about some of your own experiences on anonymous or otherwise.
