Tarantino on Ophuls in DJANGO UNCHAINED

[American Cinematographer, January 2013.]

One Response to “Tarantino on Ophuls in DJANGO UNCHAINED”

  1. Not David Bordwell says:

    Between this, the soundtrack, and the McTeague image, you seem to have seen more and appreciated better what’s actually in DJANGO UNCHAINED than 90% of what I have read online. I already bitched about this on Twitter, but the Tal Rosenberg review in the Reader is an embarrassing hatchet job.

    Anyway, thanks for these posts and for steering me to Steven Boone and Odie Henderson, two bruvas I’m going to look forward to reading from now on.

“Rjukan is a town in Norway and it sits at the bottom of a deep valley. For six months a year no sunlight falls on it because of its location. About 120 years ago one of the town’s founders had this pipe dream of putting up mirrors on the mountainside in order to beam down light to Rjukan. The technology wasn’t there, but about two years ago an artist installed these very large solar-panelled mirrors into the side of the valley that follow the sun as it moves across the sky. Now a rectangle of light about the size of a tennis court shines on to the town. I want to stand in that rectangle of light.”
~ “Cloud Atlas” Novelist David Mitchell

“Cyberspace is a literary invention and does not really exist, however much time we spend on the computer every day. There is no such space radically different from the empirical, material room we are sitting in, nor do we leave our bodies behind when we enter it, something one rather tends to associate with drugs or the rapture. But it is a literary construction we tend to believe in; and, like the concept of immaterial labor, there are certainly historical reasons for its appearance at the dawn of postmodernity which greatly transcend the technological fact of computer development or the invention of the Internet.”
~ Fredric Jameson On William Gibson, Cyberspace and “Neuromancer”
