That Riviera Touch

vlcsnap-236693

The new Forgotten is online over at The Auteurs’ Notebook, even though my editor, Danny Kasman (whom I had the pleasure of at last meeting when I was in New York) is busy in Cannes, covering some kind of little festival they’re having over there.

This week’s column is on THE TOUCHABLES, an obscure piece of ’60s frippery co-authored by Edinburgh-born* cult auteur Donald Cammell.

*Born underneath the Camera Obscura, appropriately enough, on the historic Royal Mile.

    Still haven’t watched this and must do so…it looks like 101% my type of film!

  2. The experience of actually watching it is not quite as enjoyable as the experience of letting it play in the background of a conversation while having a glass or two of wine. It’s a good decorator, but you need to supply the content yourself!
