My latest edition of THE FORGOTTEN is up at THE AUTEURS’ NOTEBOOK.


Please leave your comments over there, they appreciate it.

Since I’m writing about title sequences mainly this week, it’s nice to feature a Richard Williams job. His amazing design and animation enlivened many a ’60s farrago, and a few good films too. This is undoubtedly of the farrago school, but although it’s, if  anything, more self-indulgent than Charles Feldman’s CASINO ROYALE or Jack Cardiff’s THE LIQUIDATOR, it’s also more artistically ambitious, and a lot more “entertaining”.
