Have been at the press screenings for the Film Comment Selects series at the Walter Reade Theater. There's so much going on, screenings of many other movies, but one thing decided me on going to this series. "Production for use": that's the phrase that the convicted killer Earl uses in "The Front Page" (and "His Girl Friday"), and that's how i felt. I felt i needed to see movies which, formally and stylistically, might provide me with ideas. And certainly, Ulrich Seidl's "Import Export" and Heinz Emigholz's "Schindler's Houses" did just that.

I shall definitely have to comment more on those films.
