Nice to see Passer's 'Intimate Lighting' get a mention. Brilliant film and Second Run have released it on dvd.

I have a torrent of 'White Dog' by Fuller but I'm pretty sure it's scheduled for re-release in early 2008.

Le Roi et l’Oiseau is great too.

Man there's loads there I haven't seen!

If you've seen the DVD of Intimate Lighting I'd be interested to know what the transfer is like.

Channel 4 showed White Dog in their 1997 Fuller season. I taped it but it's been played a lot.

Some really good-sounding films there. The article is very good and makes me want to see them all.

The transfer is perfect. Pristine. The subs are burned onto the print (which I prefer).

Wierd to see Marketa Lazarova (Frantisek Vlacil, Czechoslovakia, 1965) there. That's a big film in the Cz New-Wave. About as obscure* as Le Bout De Souffle!



*by S&S's standards.
