No Weapon Formed Against Me Shall Prosper: Los Angeles, 2015

Los Angeles' Bendix Building. Photo by Jordan Cronk.The bats have left the bell towerThe victims have been bled  Red velvet lines the black boxBela Lugosi's dead —BauhausBela-Bonkers Brit Bloke Brazenly Boosts Bendix-Building Black Bandana!In the annals of Los Angeles crime, it was hardly an episode to titillate James Ellroy. Was it even really a crime? I was on the short stairwell that connects the 11th—the top—floor of the Bendix Building, a Garment District block on the corner of Maple St and 12th St, when I spotted the square of white-patterned black cotton. Into my pocket it rapidly went, compensation for the fact that my quest for rooftop access had been stymied. An orange plastic sign across the door up ahead, warning (bluffing?) of alarms that would ring out if opened, dissuaded further progress. I wasn't too disheartened—my unplanned visit to the Bendix Building had yielded sufficient delights. »

'Wizard of Oz' TV Show 'Emerald City' Gets Series Order on NBC

15 April 2015 6:19 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

NBC has given a 10-episode straight-to-series order for Emerald City, a show set within the world of L. Frank Baum's classic tale The Wizard of Oz. The project initially moved forward as a pilot last season, from writers Matthew Arnold and Josh Friedman, although the network didn't pick up the series. The project was reworked by Do No Harm series creator David Schulner, resulting in the dramatic reversal of a straight-to-series order.

Emerald City follows the exploits of 20-year-old Dorothy Gale and her K9 police dog who are swept up by a tornado and taken to a mystical land far away, full of competing kingdoms, lethal warriors, dark magic and a bloody battle for supremacy. The show is said to put a much darker spin on the original Wizard of Oz tale, showcasing the transformation of a young girl into a "headstrong warrior who holds the fate of kingdoms in her hands, »

Berlinale 2015. Correspondences #4

8 February 2015 7:04 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Dear Danny,

You describe the Maddin and Panahi well, and we have similar takes on them—but please allow me to digress before I address those films, as I’ve just come out of Jem Cohen’s Counting, and I’d like to take advantage of its freshness in my mind. Organized into 15 chapters, the film more or less documents certain excerpts from the filmmaker’s travels over the past three years. The chapters vary in length and focus, with different headings & descriptions (“New York City, 2012-2014,” “The Millions,” etc.), and taking place in different locations across the globe (Moscow, Porto, Istanbul). Entirely made up of subjective glimpses of these places, the film resembles a diary or travelogue—but in spite of its seeming slightness in its minute pieces, in total it is a perceptive and honest record of the world today. Cohen understands the limitations of the image, of »
