An Alphabet of Cinema

That is the final review of the project I started way back with Akira. I intended to write a comment on one film on my shelf for each letter of the alphabet. And we have done so. Here's the full list:

A: Akira
B: Black Orpheus
C: Crime Story
D: Dragon Inn
E: Evil Dead
F: Fallen Angels
G: Go
H: His Girl Friday
I: The Iron Giant
J: Josie And The Pussycats
K: The Killer
L: Ladyhawke
M: My Fair Lady
N: Ninja Scroll
O: Out Of Sight
P: Peking Opera Blues
Q: There Is No Letter Q
R: Raiders of the Lost Ark
S: Snatch
T: Time Bandits
U: Underworld
V: Versus
W: Wages of Fear
X: Xena: Warrior Princess (A Comedy of Eros)
Y: Yojimbo
Z: A Zed and Two Noughts

So now I'm done. Guess I'll have to find something else to talk about. Or else do it all over again. That'll mean buying another film that starts with "Z" before I get to the end, I guess.


  1. Hi Corey!

    Hope this is the right person and that I(m not freaking you out. Actually was browsing and read the essay on comedy of eros and then was thinking that this must be you. The sword, the thai curry reference, the essay on Xena. Holy shit! cyberspace is a wacky place. Anyway,wanted to say hello from the past, a long ancient drunken past in Tokyo, which just ended for Yuka and I in July of 2004. We're in Orange county now, Y got a scholarship to study at UCI,so here we are, making fun of Republicans in SUVS, as we bob and weave out of their way in our Honda.
    How's it going?


  2. It is the right person. Yay! I posted on your blog. Say hi to Y. Email me: barsoomcore at mac dot com.
