Farewell, Cinemarati





The Siren bids farewell to the Cinemarati site, which is closing forever after a long and happy run. She was happy and proud to be a part of this site and its roster of dedicated, smart critics. The member sites have shifted to other parts of her blogroll, and the Cinemarati themselves will be around at a new Yahoo group. You can read the goodbye posts until June 12.

HA! nice save. The sentiments are, er, noted? acknowledged? filed for future reference?

Regarding your question in your parting remarks, I have indeed seen The Battle of Algiers, with is a brilliant bit of filmmaking, as well as Come and See, the Russian WWII flick. The first half reminds me a lot of the more lyrical aspects of Andrei Tarkovsky's Ivan's Childhood, while the second half is a descent straight into Nazi Hell. I prefer the first to the second half, but it certainly is an unforgettable bit of Soviet-era celluloid. Next up: La Haine.

How's your journey towards the light going?

My journey toward the light? Not sure I understand?

Battle of Algiers is a special movie for me because it was my first date movie with Mr. C. An odd choice for most people, but he loved it, thus sealing his doom, I mean future bliss. :)

Journey toward the light=cinematic enlightenment. As in, catching up with those films that you're embarrassed not to have seen.

I just realized that my first comment looks completely random now that the original posts have been deleted. Really, officer, there was a reason I started blathering on about these films, honestly there was...
