So here's a little something: for about the last year and change, I've been writing off and on for the UK site, Focus-Film. The good people there brought me on (as an intern in the latter part of my time in grad school) to write news, reviews, and coverage for a whole host of stuff - for a while I even had an awards corner called "Jack's Award Focus" (GET IT?! ::FACE::)
I more often than not did the news pieces, but I got some coverage on films as well there. How long I'll continue writing for the site, and/or producing reviews for them, I'm not sure. It's been a while since I sprung my "Classic of the Month" or one of my "Remake Risk" categories where I did an 'Old Vs New" thing with movies. I could've certainly continued both of those, as well as the regular reviews I did. Trouble was, there just wasn't that much time with the job I had.
But here I list the films I have reviewed for them. Hope you enjoy my time having a 'swing' with this British lass...
Classic of the Month:
Henri-Georges Clouzot's DIABOLIQUE
Don Siegel's INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS
The Marx Brothers in DUCK SOUP
Wim Wenders' PARIS, TEXAS
