Dr. Strangelove

Dr. Strangelove, or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bombseen @ "Movies With a View" @ Brooklyn Bridge Park, Brooklyn NYIf I were to pick one word to describe the films of Stanley Kubrick, I would pick "tense." Even in a comedy like Dr. Strangelove, there's a palpable sense of tension that Kubrick always knew how to generate. I've always thought it was the result of his cinematography - the way he framed certain shots and then held them, shooting long takes with minimal cross-cutting. It look...

#TCMParty: Monkey Business (1931)

content discovered on Monday, August 17, 2015 in classic cinema, comedy, social media

So last Friday night, the 14th, marked a return for me to the #TCMparty, the Twitter feed in which fans of the classic film network Turner Classic Movies (TCM) congregates virtually to live-tweet during movies aired by TCM. As I've said before, I'm of two minds about live-tweeting: I dig the social aspect of experiencing a movie online with other movie fans, but I don't like dividing my attention between my TV and my cellphone - and while I enjoyed taking part in it, I'm afraid my attitude on this hasn't...

Five years of writing this blog? Doesn't seem possible! I know I keep saying every year at this time how I can't believe I got this far, but it's true - every time I think this is it, I'm not gonna be able to continue blogging, something inspires me to keep going. This year it's been the temporary format change. I know what it'll be next year... but I'm not ready to announce that yet.Once again, thank you so much for reading, whether you've been with me from the beginning or just discovered WSW. And don'...

Douglas Fairbanks

content discovered on Thursday, August 06, 2015 in books, health, movie industry, movie stars, silent films

I've talked here before about Douglas Fairbanks as an actor. It's remarkable to see how much athleticism, verve, and charm he had in his movies. As one of, if not the first, action movie star, he brought a vitality to his films that's refreshing to see and rare to find in the modern, CGI-enhanced incarnation of the action film.By way of a for-instance, I watched The Mark of Zorro in preparation for this post, and he brings much of the same joie de vivre here that he did in the first movie I saw him in, T...
