plug in

just received the first issue of P r o j e c t o r, a new film journal edited by bay area poet chris kerr. the gist is this: writing on film that moves beyond reviews or any sort of traditional analysis. the moment i picked it up i read it straight thru, a real delight to the eye and mind. the films range from the arch porno chic of radley metzger to the horrors of dario argento all the way back round to arthouse staple eric rohmer and back again. in other words, this is a fantastic read of poems and experimental prose to, in the phrase of its editor, 'use poetry and prose to letterbox films.' highly recommended. info and excerpts are found here.
