Bathroom of Mystery

vlcsnap-2015-04-27-19h54m28s16

Marking and hand-in time at college so my part-time job has become a full-time one for the moment, but to make myself even more tired I decided to do some midnight grouting. This did the trick and actually helped me sleep, I think. Light physical work after a day of mental work is quite relaxing. Of course, the fatigued efforts of an inexperienced grouter are not necessarily going to be the best you can get — the bathroom kind of looks as if the Michelin Man has committed suicide in it.

But I also found time to enjoy all 383 minutes of LA MAISON DU MYSTERE, and this forms the basis for this fortnight’s edition of, you guessed it, The Forgotten. The 1923 serial is available from Flicker Alley and features translation and liner notes by my chum Lenny Borger, and music by other chum Neil Brand. Linkage.

  1. Is the link wrong? Or maybe the piece is not yet online at Mubi?

  2. Very weird — it is published and not published at the same time. The Schrodinger’s Cat of movie reviews. I will check with my editor, and if you check back this afternoon I expect it will all be fixed.

  3. I think it’s up now.
