Three Colors trilogy!
I'm absolutely shocked that you haven't seen the Three Colors trilogy, Gabe.
Break up the Brakhage into programs; it's too overwhelming to do it all at once, purely at a sensory level. The Antonioni is sitting on my self, too.
I'm jealous of anyone who gets to watch the Three Colors Trilogy for the first time.
I just did 3 or 4 months ago, and it was truly a joy.
Thank for reminding me. Been on my list since I heard about them.
Do you all recommend watching them in a timely manner of each other or can I space it out?

Timely manner. It's not mandatory, but the stories do somewhat overlap, especially in the first two. I watched all three in the course of 4 nights I think, but I'm sure taking a week to get through them wouldn't be a big deal.
Alright will do. Looking forward to them based off the premise I've read and the pretty universal praise!
All you guys who are raving about The Three Colors have seen The Double Life of Veronique, right? Good.
Still holding out hope that Criterion has secured rights to the Decalogue now that it has seemingly gone out of print with those abortionists at Facets.
I went to the Napoleon film production in Oakland on Sunday. It was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!!!!. Worth every cent of the $110 admission price. It truly was a once in a lifetime experience. I would highly recommend it if the San Francisco Silent Film Festival does this again with Carl Davis and an entire orchestra. There was a five minute standing ovation at the end of the movie.

He didn't even create a new voice for the bear it's just a more Boston Peter Griffin.
Also, has anyone seen Lord Byron? The only film I've ever walked out on. I'm kind of curious if there was anything redeemable towards the end.
I remember watching White with my wife on our first date in college 16 years ago. I guess I was trying to pull of the sophisticated vibe back in the day.
I gave Noir his first Brakhage and was rather blown away by it. This was also my first experience with purely experimental/avant-garde film making. For a novice, it was rather bizarre and took some settling into. AND, if you get motion sickness, don't drink before watching them, especially when viewing the scratched images onto the reel itself.
BELA TARR AT CINEFAMILY OFFICIAL!
The Turin Horse getting a week long run is huge. There are a few conflicts on Coachella weekends, but it's not any of the major stuff so I doubt this'll be a problem for anyone.
Sounds like Satantango hasn't been announced yet, but has been confirmed to be sometime in May.
A special delivery has just arrived. Ladies and gentlemen—we give you all 26 reels of Béla Tarr's SÁTÁNTANGÓ!
Drinking and experimental film don't mix under any circumstance.
