To Bisbee

A quick heads-up that my favorite documentary of last year (and my 18th favorite film of all of 2018) Bisbee '17 will be airing on PBS this upcoming Monday (otherwise known as My Birthday), so if you haven't yet had the opportunity to screen this masterpiece now is your chance. Here's my review, and here's a choice bit from therein:

"It's a post-modern sort of spirit photography, as the ectoplasm of the past spews into visibility, possession like, a document of how we're all whether we realize it or not formed out of the molecules of the dead, a pile of repeats, damned to the same stories over and over and over again. Centuries melt off us - fine porcelain bones glimmer like cinema beneath."
