Transition H50 (2016) by Jessica Eaton. • One of my weekend posts in 2012 contained details about Taking Tiger Mountain, a low-budget feature film put together in 1983 by Tom Huckabee using footage originally shot in Tangier and Wales in the 1970s. Huckabee’s film is a strange “experimental” work of science fiction, based in part […]

Marbles and Butterflies (2011) by Jennifer Knaus. • “Cutter’s Way is a cinematic masterpiece” says John Patterson. Yes, it is, and it’s often been difficult to see (although it’s now on DVD) being one of those cult films that rarely surfaced on TV or video. Another cult film surfacing at last is Jerzy Skolimowski’s Deep […]

Angels 6: Paradise stands in the shadow of swords

stuck_angel.jpg

The Guardian of Paradise by Franz Stuck (1889). We’ll let Coil have the final word on the angel theme, the post title being taken from their Cathedral In Flames.
