Comics Daze

I need a break from computering, so a Daze day it is. Let’s go.

The Waitresses: Wasn’t Tomorrow Wonderful?

14:20: Quaderni ucraini: Le radici del conflitto by Igort (Pax)

This book is from 2010, but has gotten a Norwegian edition now.

Igort has interviewed a few older people from Ukraine, and illustrates their stories. The stories are mostly from the 30s and the following decades, and they are masterfully told in Igort’s distinctive and understated style. It’s a really moving book.


Suicide Romeo: Pictures

15:36: Clubhouse #14 (Colorama)

The Clubhouse books are based around the concept of inviting a bunch of artists to Berlin to create an anthology while at a residency. Arranged by Colorama, who’s a riso printer. So there’s some cohesion to the books just based on that.

But this was done remotely (due to Recent Events), and it feels really random.

And some of the pieces have artwork that don’t suit riso printing at all.

So I had a hard time getting into this — there were some good pieces in here, but it was just hard to give it the required attention.

Alan Vega: Alan Vega

16:08: Leonard by Michael R. Muller

This starts off a bit rough, but once I got into the rhythm of things, it actually got strangely gripping (for a book of obscure jokes and hi-jinx).

It’s really interesting (and I laughed out loud a couple times), and I can easily see this artist going somewhere.

The Meters: Gettin’ Funkier All The Time (2): A Message From The Meters [Struttin’ & Singles Bonus Tracks]

16:41: Blank Frames by Nicole Rodrigues (Reptile House)

This has a very distinct point of view — it feels very assured.

It’s interesting.

The Meters: Gettin’ Funkier All The Time (2): A Message From The Meters [Struttin’ & Singles Bonus Tracks]

16:55: Down Under by Daniel Østvold

This is extremely silly, in the best possible way.

It’s one absurd thing after another, and it’s most amusing.

The Meters: Gettin’ Funkier All The Time (2): A Message From The Meters [Struttin’ & Singles Bonus Tracks]

17:08: Wet Shape in the Dark by Jon Chandler (Breakdown Press)

This is a collection of shorter pieces that are mostly about people being threatened with violence of one kind of another.

I expected these to somehow build to something greater, since they’re so focused on the same kind of theme… and indeed, the final piece is a callback to a couple of the other pieces, but it just doesn’t quite work for me? That is, I think stumbling onto almost any one of these pieces in an anthology would have made an impression (because they are pretty unnerving), but collected like this, I just got impatient with it all.

Jeanne Lee: Conspiracy

17:38: Extended Play by Jake Terrell (2d cloud)

Oops! I’m pretty sure I’ve already got this one here… somewhere… why is it that I only realise that when I’ve got the actual book in my hand, and not when I’m shopping on the interwebs? Well, might as well re-read this now…

Oh, man, I miss 2d cloud. Every book impeccably produced and every book drop an event.

And this is a really good book. It’s a collection of shorter pieces, where most take a different approach to storytelling (which I guess explains the “play” in the title). It’s all pretty successful and interesting? And very pretty.

17:58: Mortensens mondæne meritter: Tulipannotatet by Lars Jakobsen (Forlaget Fabel)

This is a newer Danish time travel series, and if I remember correctly, the storytelling is rather chaotic? But entertaining. I think this is the newest album…

This is actually a whole lot more straightforward than the previous albums. It’s still rather abrupt and choppy, though, but not as much as before.

But now it’s so straightforward that there’s almost nothing left — it seems so brief that it’s over before it’s begun. And while the artwork is pretty attractive, it’s hard to tell people apart. Or, rather, see that they’re the same character in different costumes.

4 Hero: Parallel Universe

18:25: This Was Our Pact by Ryan Andrews (Gyldendal)

I try to avoid translations if I can read the original language, but I found this really cheaply on sale, so…

The colours are wonderful here, but the figures and line work is kinda generic in a 90s Top Shelf kinda way?

I think Andrews is going for whimsy, but it reads as allegory in the first half, which means that it has an unpleasant whiff of “spiritual” going on.

But the book has a really surprising flow — it absolutely didn’t go where I expected it to, and in a way my expectations here sabotaged my enjoyment of the book. It’s actually a pretty good book, and all the annoying beats I thought the book was going to hit never happened.

I can totally see myself being absolutely enthralled by this book when I was, like, 12 — it has that kind of magic going; a real sense of wonder, and nothing to undermine that feeling.

19:37: Nwai & Palace no. 1 by Antoine Cossé (Breakdown Press)

These books collect some mysterious short pieces.

Cossé’s artwork is really attractive, and quite varied.

These are intriguing, classic little vignettes, and the books are satisfying reads.

19:50: Tel-Tales #1 and Red Bird #6 by Dan Zettwoch

I love these little books Zettwoch does… always some printing or assembling flourish (in addition to the amusing (auto)bio stories).

Tel-Tales #1 is a very small book, but it folds out in the middle.

And the cover is made from a aperture/punch card (rescued from the same building the story takes place in) that’s been screenprinted on top of. It’s super dooper cool.

The other booklet is larger, and is less extravagant format wise. But it’s also a good little anecdote; more wistful than the first one (which basically retells a prank of sorts).

John Zorn: The Bagatelles (2): Erik Friedlander and Michael Nicolas

20:04: Windowpane #4 by Joe Kessler (Breakdown Press)

Oh, this piece was reprinted in that larger Kessler book I read last Comics Daze day… but I’ll re-read it anyway.

Is this screenprinted? It looks and feels screenprinted, but man, that’s a lot of work…

Anyway, this piece works even better here in its own book — the book feels so perfect; it’s like a mysterious object, because there’s no contextualisation to what we’re reading. It’s more immediate and gripping?

Great stuff.

20:14: R.I.P. Mou 1&2 by Valis Ortiz

Love the glitter on the covers!

This is a collection of sketchbook entries…

… and a couple of comics. Since this is a family oriented blog, there’s extremely few pages I can snap here — there’s a lot of fucking going on in these pages.

Pretty good.

Oval: Ovidono

20:47: Jeremiah 39: Rancune by Hermann (Faraos Cigarer)

It’s pretty impressive, Hermann started this series in 1979, and has almost single-handedly done all these albums (with the exception of the colouring of some of the earliest albums). And Hermann was born in 1938!

But on the other hand, the last couple of Jeremiah albums have, how to put this politely, sucked. So…

This is better than the previous album. The artwork is more like back in the olden days — solid figure work, somehow precise and loose lines at the same time, and a unique colour sense.

But as usual, he adds a dozen characters we haven’t seen before, and only sketches in some character like these two, who are the “gross fat guy who’s fat and gross” and “his sister, who yells a lot”, but that’s something, at least. It’s a lot to keep track of.

I thought this one kinda worked, though? It’s not as good as Jeremiah Back In The Days, but it’s fine.

Apparently the French kinda agree with me:

It’s hard to judge as this album bothered me a bit at the beginning with its somewhat “deconstructed” scenario.
I reassure, things pick up afterwards and we finally understand what is happening. As usual, characters apart and colorful, a return (two even) and dialogues always as well written.
Probably not the best of the Jeremiahs, but we’re still average.

Vanishing Twin: Ookii Gekkou

21:30: The Inspector by Liam Cobb (Breakdown Press)

Riso printed, I guess?

Anyway, this takes all the usual pot shots at “fine dining”, but it takes it so far beyond the pale that even this tired old trope is funny again.

*slow clap*

Vanishing Twin: Ookii Gekkou

21:45: Whistle by Louka Butzbach (Breakdown Press)

This is a pretty unique book — it’s got a fairy tale kind of vibe, but the story it tells isn’t what you’d expect.

The artwork and the pacing are perfect for this odd story. It’s a strange, compelling read.

Dean Blunt: Black Metal 2

21:59: The One Who Weeps by Cynthia Alfonso (Cold Cube Press)

This is great — it’s a narrative book, but on the edges of abstraction.

It really works. Very interesting.

22:18: Jettens morgen by Sunna Kitti (ČállIIdLágádus)

Oh, this is the first sámi comic book or something? Well, first album sized thing, perhaps… I think I read something about that….

Huh, I had expected more Japanese-inspired artwork, but perhaps that trend is subsiding? There was a period a couple years ago where all comics aimed at teenagers had to look kinda Japanese. But this looks more American? Er… do I see some Paul Pope there? Jeff Smith? Is there even some Fiona Staples, perhaps?

This is apparently based on some old epic or something… it’s about a guy that goes to the land of giants and fights some monsters or something.

And I say “or something” because the translation is horrible! Hor ri ble. Half of the time I have no idea what they’re even talking about. Was this translated to English first and then to Norwegian? The text is frequently non-idiomatic, and often uses outdated phrases and then mixes in anachronisms.

I have no idea whether it was originally as incoherent as this originally, but this was a chore to get through, because every other page is “what does that even mean?”, “who is he referring to now?”, and just “whaa… huh?”

And the lettering is atrocious.

Various: Pop Psychédélique

23:08: Popocomi 1 (Popotame Books & Gallery)

If I understand the introduction right, this is a collection of comics by artists that don’t usually do comics, which explains why this is published by a gallery.

I wouldn’t have guessed, though — all these pieces have a good flow and read well. I would have expected comics done by illustrators and artists to be more art forward?

And then… yowza.

Anyway, this is a good anthology.

23:24: The End

And now I’m all worn out from all this comicsing, so I think it’s time to go to bed.



It feels like I did one of these posts just the other day, but it was a month ago? Time sure does fly…

Since there’s a round number in the title of this blog post, perhaps I should natter on a bit more than usual? Sure! If you insist!

So: This is part of a series of posts where I bloviate on how Emacs development is going, partially through gamification of the Emacs bug tracker. This round, 10% was 205 bugs, so we started at 2050 open bugs, and after closing 10% of those, we’re now at…

Drum roll…

1966 open bugs! Well, that’s a decrease, at least — we had an increase in the previous stretch.

But as you can see, I got my act together and did some actual work.

Most of it was just the normal, eh, whatever, but I also went through all the bugs that were tagged as having a patch, and…

… applied a bunch of those. (But a surprising number, perhaps a quarter of those closed, had already actually been applied, but then discussion had just gone on to other things and nobody remembered to close the door after they left.)

As you can see, it’s been almost a year since the last time somebody took the time to do some triage on the patch reports, and that’s really too long — I found stuff in there that should have been applied a lot speedier, but…

Hm… I wonder how many bugs I’ve closed since I started this silly project back in 2019…

*gulp* 5300 bugs. Dude.

Full chart.

As you can clearly see, by using quadratic linear regression we will be at negative 500 in 2026, and to achieve that at that point, I’ll have to start opening bug reports instead of closing them.

That’s mathematics for you!

Anyway — has Emacs gained any new and exciting functionality over the last month? Er… Let’s look at the NEWS file.

Oh, yeah, there’s new branching commands for VC mode under C-x v b. But more significantly, there’s C-x v v in diff buffers (courtesy of Juri Linkov), which allows you to selectively commit things. It’s very convenient — for instance, if you’re working on something bigger in a file, and then see an unrelated typo in that file, you can now commit that unrelated thing in a separate commit without having to stash anything first. It’s very convenient for us that futz around a lot.

We now interpret OSC escape sequence in compilation buffers (courtesy of Matthias Meulien), which makes output from some newer compilers more pleasant to read.

We have a new package for setting wallpapers on desktops directly from Emacs and image-mode (courtesy of Stefan Kangas), which is quite convenient.


I finally incorporated the image cropping/cutting code I wrote a few years back.


I know, right?

But since this is a round-numbered 10% post, let’s look at more stats. Let’s see… Oops! Found a bug in the stats generator, so if I’ve posted charts like this before, they’ve been er wrong.

But here’s the full overview of contributors per month, going all the way back to 1985:

Which is misleading as ever, since the VC (ahem) didn’t really keep that much track of things back in the 80s. But the last few years should be reasonably accurate:

And… It’s looking OK. We’re up from about 45 to about 65 per month over the last five years. (Note: Expert cherry-picking of dates; I’m an ex stock broker after all.)

But what about the number of commits instead?

Yowza. People have been busy. Let’s zoom in:

700 commits per month? We seem to have more than doubled the er development er velocity? I didn’t really know that, actually…

Let’s see… anything more? Oh yeah:

A couple old Emacs stats posts went to HackerNews and reddit, which totally makes the WordPress stats unreadable for normal days for a month. Fie!

And that’s it for this chart-heavy extravaganza.

Comics Daze

I’ve been continuing to order comics from diverse sources, and this week a got a nice little package from Domino Books (once again; he gets a lot of new stuff in), and from Breakdown Press, who I’ve never ordered directly from before… but unpacking, I was most struck by the books from Glacier Bay Books.

Previously, I basically bought everything they’d published themselves (mostly translated Japanese comics), but this time around, I went spelunking around the rest of their offerings. And when I opened the package, it was like being back in my recurring dream where I’m in a store totally unknown to me, and then I find first one interesting comic, and then I find another, and then there’s all these comics that look awesome and I must have. Unpacking this box was like that, except that I didn’t wake up at the end.

It was just so striking looking all these books are once — many of them were really compelling as physical objects, and looking through a few of them, they looked really interesting art wise, too… and most of them were from people I hadn’t heard about before. It was like *gasp*

But then it turned out that I’ve been really busy and haven’t had time to read any comics — but every morning I’ve heard the siren call of the Window Sill Of Unread Comics and finally today, I’ve carved out a day for comics reading.

So here goes. I’m all aflutter.

Kid606: I Dance For Planned Parenthood DJ mix

09:33: Steamy Buns by Misaki Kawai (Nos Books)

Whaa… it’s got spiral bindings on both sides?

It opens into a triptych! So you basically open every other page to the left and to the right. Fun!

It’s a non narrative book (I think), but this format has potential for doing stuff narratively — instead of opening every other page in one direction, you can do one left/two right etc and get a different adventure.

Really well made (and very pretty). Printed in Taiwan.

09:48: Colorama Clubhouse 13

Another unusual binding technique — split pins.

So this was put together at a residency in Berlin? Trey hip.

It’s a collection of short narrative pieces (and riso printed).

It’s really cool — a wide variety of approaches, with some going for humour…

… and some not.

Ooo. Gorgeous.

Nice one.

10:06: Weird #2 by Mr. Freiberg

The cover here has stitching — somebody ran the cover through a sewing machine?

Truth in advertising — this is very weird.

It’s a collection of mostly one-page strips, but the themes are pretty consistent, so it doesn’t read choppy. It’s unnerving and fun at the same time.

Jockstrap: I Love You Jennifer B

10:24: Glaeolia 3 edited by Emuh Ruh and zhuchka (Glacier Bay Books)

This is an anthology of Japanese comics — it’s a good variety of story length: Some brief pieces, and some longer ones. (It’s an almost 400 page book.)

But… Some anthologies have a problem with consistent tone; that there’s just all sorts of work thrown in, which leads to the book having no identity at all. This is totally on the opposite side of the scale — all but a couple of the story are symbolic and/or absurd.

Some Japanese comics from children have a problem of overbearing editors insisting on consistency, and I wonder if this has the same problem? Editors going “this need more symbolism. MORE SYMBOLISM!!! Redraw this until there’s symbolism on every page!!!” While there’s a range of approaches taken to the artwork, every story is kept in the same tone, and is basically… the same story.

But I’m guessing that the editors for this collection just love this stuff, so this is what they picked.

I got so sleepy while reading this that I went and took a nap.

None of these pieces are bad, exactly, but the cumulative effect of so many similar stories is soporific. I think many of these pieces could have had an impact in a different context? But having them bunched up all together like this is a disservice to the work.

There’s two pieces that stood out:

Yokoyama Yuichi is great as always.

And the book ends with a simple slice-of-life diary comic, and it’s such a breath of fresh air after the over-stuffed symbolism of the other pieces.

So… not a good anthology.

Oliver Sim: Hideous Bastard

14:31: Night on Earth by Mississippi

This is great — it’s a collection of paintings? But narrative paintings.

Almost every painting has an entire story going on.

Very nice.

Playgroup: Previously Unreleased (1)

14:43: John’s Worth #1-4 by Jon Chandler (Breakdown Press)

These are four smallish comic books, and start off as a riff on eXistenZ, I think?

But then seems to grow even more mysterious.

I really enjoy the artwork here, and it works as a mystery — the storytelling’s quite good — but unfortunately, the fourth issue ends with “to be continued” and that didn’t happen? Too bad.

Playgroup: Previously Unreleased (1)

15:06: Escape to the Unfinished by Dash Shaw (Breakdown Press)

I guess this is a collection of unfinished things?

But it really works — the pieces seem to resonate with each other, and there are callbacks, so the book functions as a mysterious little object. Really good.

Playgroup: Previously Unreleased (1)

15:14: Insula volume 1 by Vincent Longhi (Fidèle Éditions)

This riso printed book started off somewhat abstract, but then quickly resolved itself as a post-apocalyptic sci fi thing.

It’s gorgeous, but was just getting going when it ended. But it’s “volume 1”, so I guess the story is to be continued?

Playgroup: Previously Unreleased (1)

15:24: Decoboko: Visual Arts Zine vol. 3 edited by Chou, Jiaxi

This has a mix of non-narrative and narrative pieces, but everything is… like… quiet. It’s definitely got a mood.

It’s really good.

Luis Yang’s piece is outstanding.

Playgroup: Previously Unreleased (1)

15:33: Los Angeles Times by Sammy Harkham

This was included in the package from Breakdown Press. Thanks! I’ve been meaning to try to get a copy, but I kept forgetting, and now here it is unexpectedly.

I don’t know the story behind this — was this really published by LA Times? Anyway, there’s no text in the newspaper to contextualise whatever it is, and I love that. And the contents feel really random in a way that suits the format. Some of these have to be older bits or reprints (like the Julie Doucet/Max collaboration here)…

Most of the pieces seem to be made specially for this paper, and riff on the lockdown and/or newspaper strips.

Whoa. Ron Regé Jr.

It’s just a strange artefact. I can imagine people finding this in a second hand shop in 40 years time and being delighted again by the randomness of it all.

Breathless: See Those Colours Fly

16:03: DCXXXL by Michael Olivo (Cold Cube Press)

This is a very mysterious book.

It’s a narrative work, but it’s really obscure what it’s all about. I mean, even telling what’s happening on a page to page basis is a (deliberate) struggle, and overall I have to summarise the book er “er… something about detectives”…

It makes books by, say, CF or Yuichi Yokoyama seem perfectly straightforward.

But it’s an appealing book.

Donna Summer: Love To Love You Baby

16:25: Windowpane by Joe Kessler (Breakdown Press)

I think I’ve read bits of this in serialised form? But this is the collection.

Nice; a strip on the inside of the dust jacket…

Kessler has a unique art style — just using colour markers, I guess? On… overlays? Straight onto paper? I don’t know, but it looks great.

It allows him to have pages that are really, really dark, when all the colours are printed on top of each other, I guess.

But you can still make out stuff in the almost-pitch-blackness of some of these pages… and it really contributes to the mood.

Oh yeah, and the stories here are really interesting, too. Sometimes a bit unnerving, but very emotional little things. *thumbs up*

17:14: Sap by Jul Quanouai (Colorama)

This small book reproduces a whole bunch of paintings of flowers, and then a surprising text in the middle.

I like it.

Donna Summer: Love To Love You Baby

17:19: Natura Comics #1-2 (Shabo Shobo)

Err… I guess the texts here are in Chinese? Darn. Well, I can use the translation app on my phone…

Err… perhaps the texts aren’t really that helpful here anyway.

Oh, there’s a paper included here with translations to Japanese and English. And, indeed, the texts aren’t helpful at all.

The other book has more text, and as the first book, what’s going on here is pretty abstract.

Even with the translator sheet, it’s all pretty vague…

But it looks good.

Orbital: Thirty-Something (1)

17:36: Tel-Tales #2 by Dan Zettwoch

I’ve never seen a comic printed just like this before — it’s folded vertically, so you get narrow, high pages. And the cover is screenprinted (I think?) on “liberated” paper from AT&T in the 80s.

It’s autobio comics, and it’s pretty amusing.

17:48: Orochi by Kazuo Umezz (Viz)

This is an old Japanese horror comic? Apparently about a supernatural woman, Orochi, who goes around meeting people, and then experience the horror of their lives.

It’s pretty good? It keeps things mysterious for the most part, but occasionally resorts to the characters telling each other what the mystery is, which is a bit meh.

But there’s some real twists here — it makes O. Henry seem like See Dick Run — and it’s more gruesome than you’d expect.

Orbital: Thirty-Something (1)

18:22: Single Camera Sitcom no. 2 by Lane Yate

This is just hard to read. I mean, for me — I’m getting new reading glasses in a couple of weeks, but meanwhile, there’s about a half centimetre range I can actually read the words in those speech balloons due to the size and colour choices used here…

It’s pretty inventive?

18:53: Trent: Miss Helen by Rodolphe/Leo (Cinebook)

This looks like it’s part of a series? Oh! It’s the seventh album, and Rodolphe has a tendency to write his series as if they are continuous wholes instead of self-contained stories.

Perhaps this would have been more entertaining if I’d read the previous albums, but I’m not sure? Leo’s artwork is dead-eyed as always, and it’s lazily (but efficiently) told in recap fashion. It’s just kinda dull?

Orbital: Thirty-Something (2)

19:20: Redbird 3 by Dan Zettwoch

Oh, another Zettwoch book… also with a nice silk-screened cover.

The first story here is the most nauseating thing ever — Zettwoch gives us an overview of all the places he’s barfed at in his life. Autobio comics are sometimes accused of sharing a bit to much, and…

The rest of the book is less er less. It’s amusing anecdote time, which is fine, and Zettwoch’s manic energy carries you along.

Orbital: Thirty-Something (2)

19:43: Today’s Desserts 1-3 by Byun Young Geun

Uhm… I’ve gotten two versions of this? One larger and in colour, and one smaller and in black and white… hm…

Oh! The black and white version is the English version.

It’s a ruminative, low key book about walking around in Tokyo…

… and eating cake. It’s kinda entrancing? Even if this two language version isn’t the ideal way to read it. Lovely art work.

19:52: Cold Cube 05 edited by Aidan Fitzgerald and Michael Heck

I didn’t know that there were this many small press art comics anthologies out there. This one, too, is riso printed.

And it’s a good match of things, going from somewhat non-narrative…

… to very non-narrative…

… to hilarious. It’s a good book.

Kelly Lee Owens: LP. 8

20:02: Le profil de Jean Melville by Robin Cousin (Epic)

Man, this is brutally, miserably ugly. Did Cousin see Nick Drnaso’s work and go “yes! that’s the way to respectability and mainstream success! I’ll make it even uglier!”

Black Midi: Hellfire

The translation also seems slightly off? Not that there’s a bunch of typos or anything, but it just doesn’t seem to flow naturally. But perhaps it was that way in the original French, too.

One thing that is this edition’s fault, though, is the way they vary the lettering size. At first I thought they were suddenly whispering at times, because the lettering went down a couple of sizes in some speech balloons. But I think they just adjust the size down when they have too many words to fit into the bubbles. That’s really, really amateurish — you can always adjust the text a bit to avoid problems like that.

This apparently won awards and stuff in France… and… I guess the plot is OK? It’s a standard paranoid “Facebook is coming for you” thriller, and it goes through all the twists you’d expect.

Coming soon to a Netflix near you?

Lizzo: Special

21:36: Showtime by Antoine Cossé (Breakdown Press)

I like the storytelling in this a lot — it’s basically a shaggy dog story, but it’s got great flow.

Lots of distancing effects etc, and the artwork’s kinda lovely, isn’t it?

OK, I’m fading, so just one more:

Lizzo: Special

21:51: Mineshaft #42

Mineshaft is still keepin’ on keepin’ on, and it’s still as unassuming as ever.

So it’s mostly sketchbook stuff and the like.

But we also get excerpts from two works in progress — the next books from Bill Griffith and Mary Fleener. I’m looking forward to both.

So I guess Mineshaft works as a periodical… postcard from those underground people you like?

Pan Amsterdam: Eat

22:04: The End

And I’m totally exhausted now, even if I had a nap in the middle there somewhere. Lots of great stuff in this haul, and nothing that was a total miss? And the latter is rather unusual.

Eclipse 1984: ঘরে-বাইরে

So this has a pretty high imdb rating… but only 1.7K votes…

And the majority of those votes are from India. I mean, from outside the US.

So this is basically a movie that’s nobody’s watched in a while, and the only people who’ve watched it are in India.

I mean, outside the US.

But the critics are ecstatic — it’s got a 100% rottentomatoes score. (Of the 12 reviewers who’ve seen it.)


In 1983, during the shooting of the film, Ray suffered two massive heart attacks. His son, Sandip Ray, completed the project from his detailed instructions.[citation needed]

I’m enjoying the languid pacing of this movie… but whenever they start speaking (and there’s a lot of dialogue here), my eyes just glaze over. What they’re talking about is no doubt riveting if you’re into Indian history, but if you’re not, it’s… It’s not.

And then a character suddenly breaks out into song? Is this a musical?


Anyway… I’m just not interested in this movie. It’s probably great! I don’t know? It looks good? But I’m bailing at this halfway through because I don’t care, and that’s probably all on me.

So ignore this:

The Home and the World. Satyajit Ray. 1984.

This blog post is part of the Eclipse series.
