A Blessed Holy Week To You All

A blessed Holy Monday to you.
I saw Mirror, Mirror this weekend and was extremely pleased with Singh's handling of costumes and power struggles (the way oppositions were created in the sub-current of the film and then released at the end). I will be getting that post up today, and Cecil B. DeMill's The Ten Commandments up Tuesday or early Wednesday and then Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ. I plan on posting on Melancholia this week, hopefully by Friday.
Then, beginning next week, we will start our series on Film noir, which I can hardly wait! All those sci-fi films we did? Those couldn't have existed without the films that came out of the noir genre. There aren't a whole lot of movies coming out in the theaters this month, they are coming out next month, so this will give us a chance to strengthen our understanding of film history and then move forward into Westerns from film noir.
