Festival...

I'm back from Telluride but so swamped in work I haven't the time to write or link.

Go read my friend Larry Calloway's review of the film festival. He has opinions I often share and he's a good writer.

"You idlers! You wasters!
You fashion-plates! You sit and sip your wine
while the naked back of an un-protesting soldier
of Christ is lashed with the whip!"



Intertitles from old silent films.
