It's another Summer Friday tomorrow, my second to last one, so we won't be posting -- we'll be off preparing ourselves for tomorrow's big screen screening of Martin Scorsese's Cape Fear, about which we are very very excited. Irrationally so, maybe even. I used to hate the movie but I saw it again about five years ago and had a total change of heart and now I adore it, and this will mark the first time on a big screen! What a thrill! MoMA's "Scorsese Screens" series that's been running the past few weeks has been an absolute gas, I am gonna be sad for it to end. Why doesn't he just become a permanent programmer anyway? Leo will find other jobs, Martin.
This weekend also finally marks the centennial of Ingrid Bergman's birth, which feels like a long time coming -- it was a three whole weeks ago that I wrote up my piece for The Film Experience's Bergman series, on her role in Dr. Jekyl & Mr Hyde. Both MoMA and BAM have been and are continuing to screen her films; I'll be seeing two of her Hitchcocks -- Under Capricorn (which is one of the very few Hitchcock films that I have not yet seen!) and Notorious, which I've of course seen a billion times but also never on a big screen. What a thrilling time to be me!
Have a good weekend, everybody.
