A Scan a Day

New stuff

Many years ago my Czech friend Richard told me about this legendary Czech classic, but it was fully unknown to me. I doubt it ever got a theatrical release here in Germany.

Although I have been out of contact with Richard for more than a decade I didn't forget about this movie. So how surprised was I to see that it was available now on DVD.

I will report how it is, once I get to watch it...

A Scan a Day

The song I got stuck in my head today

Billy Idol - Eyes Without a Face

I must admit I never really was an avid fan of Billy Idol, but at times he did manage to bring some mild decadence onto the MTV screenscape. This is the song that most often pops up into my head from time to time.

The reason why the song popped up just now is that I recently purchased the DVD of Georges Franju's Les Yeux sans visage (aka Eyes Without a Face), a movie that immensely impressed me the first time I saw it and to this day is one of my all-time favourites. Don't miss it, if you ever get the chance to see it!
