Seeing movies there in that era was like a doctorate level cinema where I got introduced to Fellini, Mastroianni, Loren, Godard, Truffaut, Jean Seberg, Bergman, Hitchcock, Antonioni, Kurosawa, Deneuve (oh god did I have the hots for her), Kubrick, Bertolucci, Woody Allen, and more. I had just been a midwest guy seeing the big headline movies and now I saw movies as an art form. I had always been a movie fan but this was a different level.

    I had just gotten divorced and had a hippie girlfriend up in YS. We’d smoke some potent weed and a Saturday movie at the Little Art was a routine. We’d just go and see whatever movie was there. My eyes were opened as to what movies could be like.

    Boom... my first job was at a local cinema, Disney stuff, mainstream etc... I went to film/video school and have seen all sorts of films, classes in German Expressionism, Russian Film, Japanese, all with different approaches to storytelling.

    Since then eye candy makes me numb. I have never seen the original Top Gun so I can't speak to the nomination. Then again I hate award shows, they are back slapping ego-fests IMO.

    We might have known each other. I grew up in Yellow Springs from 1970-1977. My mother ran the Little Arts Theater on the weekend afternoons. She would bring me along, so I grew up watching movies. I loved it, especially the free popcorn. The weekend afternoons were mostly older classics, many silent films. To this day Charlie Chaplin is my favorite filmmaker of all time.

    Thanks for sharing that personal history. I had understanding parents that let me go see to an art house cinema when I was not even in my teens and see films with no ratings, John Waters, Fellini, Antonioni, Truffaut, Godard and many more.
    I strongly urge people to seek out local films. Local food and beer are considered cool by the hipsters, so why not local films, art and music?

    You have one life, avoid any kind of product that is focus group driven, and by that I am talking about a lot of Hollywood movies.
    There are some Hollywood movies that don’t fit that definition, and I am looking forward to seeing Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer in 2023. Reading his biography right now by Ray Monk, who sees him as a philospher. A very interesting man.

    Maybe. I worked at Fels Research Institute as a research assistant assessing x-rays for skeletal maturation. I showed an aptitude for computer stuff so they set me into writing Fortran code on a PDP-11 to munch on the data. Worked on the Fels Longitudinal Study https://medicine.wright.edu/epidemio...udy-collection

    About midway through my term there, Wright State absorbed Fels and it became part of Wright State till they stupidly shut it down in 2018 due to budgetary problems.

    But yeah, I hung out in YS, played on the Ye Olde Trails Tavern softball team, saw a lot of movies at the Little Art, chased women, and drank beer.

    Re: Oscar nominations are out

    I use to love watching old Taxi reruns. I have almost the whole series on DVD years back.


    So kinda cool in a way to see Judd Hirsch nominated…. Even if it’s not exactly a movie I’ll run out to watch. Or an award show I put much emphasis on

    I watched Triangle of Sadness on an airplane this weekend. It wasn’t bad, but just kinda seemed like a worse White Lotus.

    The Fabelmans is a good movie and Hirsch is good in it. I’d recommend it.
