Over at The Chiseler, Shadowplayer Guy Budziak contributes thoughts on film noir, illustrated by his stunning woodcuts. Click the link and a little tow-haired cyber-newsie will sling you a copy. Guy’s own site is here. I have one of his prints and you need one, too.
In other news, I’ve belatedly discovered that Sight & Sound magazine, in a review of the WILL SUCCESS SPOIL ROCK HUNTER? Blu-Ray, referred to me as “Tashlin expert David Cairns.” I’m pretty sure that should read, “guy who’s seen several Tashlin films David Cairns,” but what the hell, I’ll take it. I guess that makes me an expert in a few things. I must be quite a guy! They ain’t paying me enough! (Cue slide into egotism and ruination. Redemptive happy ending with girl. Fade out.)
