    Summer Of Love - 2003 - 6/10

    Click here to enlarge

    Indifferent use of period sights and sounds from San Francisco, circa 1967.
    Interviews with still-surviving, oldish spokesmen from the era.
    Music soundtrack a mix of San Francisco and Los Angeles groups. In some cases, cover groups.
    Some clips from the Human Be-In, next to nothing from Monterey Pop.
    At the end, speakers confessed how very sour it all became, as tens of thousands flooded in.
    PBS aired a couple superior docs of that period with Coyote - worth seeking out.
    The “summer of love” turns 50 this year. I predict a lot of rosy memories are queued up.

    Writer/Director: Denis Villeneuve - Incendies (2010), Prisoners (2013), Sicario (2015), Arrival (2016), Blade Runner 2049 (2017)
    This film won the best picture, direction, cinematography, screenplay, and actress awards in Canada at their equivalent of the Academy Awards
    Checking out early work, Villeneuve has apparently been in meticulous control from the beginning.
    The story of a young woman in crisis, told by a fish.
    It is a romance, but there's nothing normal going on here.
    Very inventive, conceptually, visually and aurally.
    I am a temporary biological event existing in an indifferent universe.

    Yeah, the chicken leg scene in White Heat is good, but I prefer Cagney's grapefruit scene in The Public Enemy.

    I found on YT three video montages of James Cagney's scenes in which he punches or otherwise assaults people. Purdee funny stuff. The guy kinda got type cast there for a while.

    The Hustler is a great movie. Speaking of Paul Newman flicks from about that era, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is another grand one.
