Past Post

I’ve contributed an essay (text — I so rarely get asked to write pure text these days) to this juicy box set. My piece is on THE DARK PAST. Luckily I was already familiar with BLIND ALLEY, which it remakes. An interesting assignment — my first for Indicator.

I just worked out that I have seven finished extras due to come out, not all of them announced yet. And three more lined up, not yet fully written let alone cut.

The ones that you know about are this one, the Bill Rebane feature doc in the WEIRD WISCONSIN box set and the limited edition MAJOR DUNDEE disc for Arrow, and for Masters of Cinema the NAKED CITY commentary, the BRUTE FORCE video essay with Fiona, THE SPY WHO CAME IN FROM THE COLD, and HANDS OF ORLAC with Fiona again.

Somebody asked me if there was a complete list of my extras somewhere — I did publish one here, but it’s now considerably out of date. I’ll do another, but with all these things in the works, three more I can’t talk about yet, and several others just in the discussion stages, now might not be the time.
