The Girl Chewing Gum

John Smith
UK, 1976, 12 minutes
B&W, Sound (Optical), 16mm ,Video

'In The Girl Chewing Gum an authoritative voice-over pre-empts the events occurring in the image, seeming to order not only the people, cars and moving objects within the screen but also the actual camera movements operated on the street in view. In relinquishing the more subtle use of voice-over in television documentary, the film draws attention to the control and directional function of that practice: imposing, judging, creating an imaginary scene from a visual trace. This 'Big Brother' is not only looking at you but ordering you about as the viewer's identification shifts from the people in the street to the camera eye overlooking the scene. The resultant voyeurism takes on an uncanny aspect as the blandness of the scene (shot in black and white on a grey day in Hackney) contrasts with the near 'magical' control identified with the voice. The most surprising effect is the ease with which representation and description turn into phantasm through the determining power of language.' - Michael Maziere.

This looks awesome! The 1992 Lithuanian basketball team

The movie! With sightings in the trailer of Bill Walton, Jerry and the boys, and other treats.

As posted here somewhere in the distant past, by sheer chance (or perhaps cosmic karma..) I was at the very game where the Rex Foundation (Mickey, Bobby and others were on hand) presented the check to Sarunas Marciulionis of the Warriors, also of the Lithuanian team. One of the more memorable evenings...

The Jerusalem Conspiracy

Terrorists plan to blow up the country with suitcase A-bombs. Plot is foiled but the end scene is "The Rapture". Give me a break! Apparently God doesn't care abount anybody left behind so those fortunate souls who get plucked from the driver's seat in various machines just let them crash & burn.

Within The Drone

great little documentary about the band Earth.
slow motion minimalism drawing on folk textures, monolithic blues unfolding around the listener in waves of amplified guitar.
