I haven't seen that one, Allison. I shall have to look into more of his creations!

Sad to hear about Mrinal Sen as well. He had been unwell and frail for some time. 95 is a fine innings!

Bob Einstein AKA Super Dave Osborne, a comedian, actor and writer, and older brother of Albert Einstein AKA Albert Brooks, has died at 76. The Super Dave character - a naive or stupid stuntman who seems to always manage to screw up his stunts to the point of serious injury - is probably his major legacy, along with his work on Curb Your Enthusiasm, but I'll always remember him best as the pushy and condescending sporting goods salesman who fleeces Albert Brooks in Modern Romance.

Damn! I definitely knew him (and his always-hoarse voice) best as Marty Funkhouser on Curb Your Enthusiasm, his back-and-forths with Larry David on that were great.


And until now I actually had NO idea that he was Albert Brooks' brother! :o

I also loved him as the surrogate on Arrested Development. But Curb is where I really got to know him.

Mary Oliver, poet, 83.

I've been sitting here trying to think of something but I can't find the right thing to say. I've learned a lot from Mary Oliver but obviously not enough. She will be missed.

Looked for news concerning this and ended up having to translate Lithuanian articles. Surprising that the US has not picked it up yet, that was where he spent almost his entire life.

A fantastic director. I have still not seen Montenegro (or his 3 last films). He was a big favorite for me when I first got interested in cinema (W.R. was often spoken off at the time and pulled me in), but he rarely if ever get mentioned these days. :(

While I have seen his work from the period, I don't believe I have given the rest of the Black Wave any attention, I really should, sad that it took his death to remind me.

I've seen one. Mysteries of the organism. Its one of the very few films I have marked as a dislike. Is he worth exploring more if I didn't care for that one?

His early work is entirely different, but maybe you should avoid Sweet Movie (though they are different enough that you can love one and not the other). If you enjoy the new wave style of the 60s, Love Affair, or the Case of the Missing Switchboard Operator (1967) should be the most accessible.

Likewise I am not big fan coz I've never had much interest in sex as topic for discussion. But over here at Faculty of Dramatic Arts he's seen as God.

One of the best gems which is always overlooked is Zaseda (The Ambush) by Živojin Pavlović. It appeals to me much more than Makavejev's sexual ouevre. I like his way of showing horrible stuff with sardonic sense of humor thrown in.

There aren't many reviews by foreigners, but this one is rare and overwhelmingly positive:

I liked that one too, but would still take some of Makavejev's early stuff over it. Love Affair, etc. in particular was quite touching. W.R. left me cold as well.

Oh, I really enjoy Makavejev's stuff. Bummer.

In fact, I even comtemplated watching his "Manifesto" last night -- I need to grind through some unwatched downloads before next week.
