New at The Chiseler, this excellent piece by the Lumiere Sisters. I may have contributed the odd word or idea, but very little I can directly trace. Treat it as a Kubrickian monolith that’s just, you know, arrived from places unknown, its origins and purpose still a total mystery.

I wrote bits of a new piece at The Chiseler. Here. It’s kind of about gialli.

I guarantee you won’t be able to tell which bits are mine and I probably couldn’t either. Daniel Riccuito, the presiding intelligence, tends to ask me to write bridging material and I just blurt something out with the keyboard. A very enjoyable way of working. Anyway, it may become part of a longer thing about Edgar Allan Poe and the cinema. A book? Publishers are welcome to come and ask about it.
