I loved moments of Solaris but didn’t love the movie. Perhaps I need to re-watch but sadly, I thought it was boring. I don’t think Tarkovsky would blame me. Apparently it was his least favourite of his own movies.
Watching his debut film Ivan’s Childhood was a completely different experience though. I loved every second of it.
Ingmar Bergman finds his own movies too depressing to watch 😂
I’ve decided to start cutting some more fat from my collection and focus more on niche labels rather than big studios.
I’m a fan of quality special features and it seems like less and less effort is being put into that area of home media releases from big studios.
This process will involve hard decision making that the inner collector in me is going to hate me for, but from now on I’m going to be less of a mindless consumer.
In celebration of this decision, here’s a box of beautiful new Criterion’s from blowitoutahere’s sale. Time to sell sell sell and make the money back.
Off to my first day at cooking school. A bit chilly this morning. Nervous and excited 🍴
