On Absence

Okay, so first things first - this post is not as serious as it sounds. I'm fine, I was simply inactive because I was lacking time... or because I was lazy and unmotivated, or both? Which makes me wonder how, in my first year of "blogging" I somehow found time and zest for writing articles… Continue reading On Absence

Movie Review: Holiday (1938)

It's been almost a month since I last typed up something for this old blog, and, I think, as much time since I last saw a B&W movie... now, that's a long time.

Anyway, when I saw… Continue reading Love is No More Than the Touching of Two Skins: Goodbye Again (1961)

This constant "fight-or-flight" aka quarantine mode has me being cynical about setting timelines to anything, so let's just say "somewhere in the… Continue reading Inspirations, Intentions, Plans, Wishes, and Hopes

Anthony Perkins’s Birthday & Movie Marathon

Exactly a year ago, I wrote one of my first blogposts which was dedicated to Anthony Perkins. Well, a year later I still want to mark this irresistible actor's birthday and for that occasion, I treated myself with a little Perkins movie marathon. It didn't include Psycho, but oh well, it did include some interesting… Continue reading Anthony Perkins’s Birthday & Movie Marathon
