from movie city news

bill forsythe on a movie i’ve seen many times and just picked up at the library again, a nice interview with jeff bridges (who’s doing a tron remake) & david thomson’s paean to tilda swinton

I don’t mind that: there are plenty of films, such as Reds, where the overall lack of focus and drive would be rescued for 20 minutes if Swinton was turned loose. She inherited from Jarman, I think, a feeling that life is short and opportunities are rare, so she can march into the middle of a picture, look around her with mounting contempt, and in her scathing look signal the plea: “What on earth are you doing – when you could be making a real movie?”
