I remember seeing this film for the first time and when the end credits rolled I was blown away. A big infulence on my first feature film The Last Broadcast. David Holzman’s Diary is a cinematic treasure that is well worth the watch if you can find it.
Finally LAGTFS is released on DVD. Lost in the vaults of Paramount for years. Starring a 15 year-old Diane Lane. Members of the Clash and Sex Pistols stand in as band members. Interesting depiction of the punk movement from a feminist POV.
On the flight to Copenhagen last month, I had the chance to view Billy Wilder’s 1960 classic, The Apartment. The movie fires on all cylinders -strong performances, great dialogue and Jack Lemon’s comedic timing is a thing of beauty.
This is a place where I collect the things that I <3. It's a mashup of tech, culture, music, films, games and anything else that catches my attention.

Why Text of Light?
The name is a reference to a film by experimental filmmaker Stan Brakhage. "Text of Light" (1974) is a wonderful film by Brakhage, who during his forty year career made over 200 films of varying length.
