Well, I’m back to drawing again, the accountant has released my computer and it’s ok for me to be creative. Thanks to all who were concerned that I had been kidnapped and subdued by the IRS, alas, this year looks to be ok, I don’t have to send any ’pera’ there way. That’s a nice feeling knowing you don’t owe. It’s like a boulder being lifted off of your back. So, now that I’m back on track, I hope to be a little more productive. If you have never seen this flick, I would say it’s one worthy of watching. Akria Kurosawa’s "The Quiet Duel". Shot in a beautiful black & white with lots of high contrast, the plot is about a doctor who must struggle within himself to keep from hurting the person he loves most. It’s a lot of psycho-drama, but in a lot of ways it’s sophisticated enough that even today it is still relevant. As a fan of Kurosawa’s, his ability to tell stories in the simplest of form with no effects or creative editing, is almost without equal. His cinematography is still at a level that most of today’s current director’s could only hope to match. And to boot, the movie poster is one of my all time favs.
