The lady disappears half way through.

It just occurred to me the other day that 1960 was the year in which…

…both L’Avventura and…

…a little film called Psycho both came out. That’s interesting. Perhaps only to me, but I’m okay with that.

  1. In case anyone’s reading this…

    The other day I was having a conversation with someone about all of the flaws of Gus Van Sant’s Psycho remake, of which there are a great many (like it’s very existence?), one being primarily that the audience isn’t made to feel complicit enough in the crimes as in the original, but primarily casting. Anne Heche is terrible as Marion, and just wrong for the role, really. The same especially for Vince Vaughn. Nevermind that he’s playing it a shade too silly but he’s also physically far too big, too imposing for the role. He looks too much like a yokel who’s just a little bit retarded.

    I thought of all of this again because I was looking at a picture of Andrew Garfield, from The Social Network and Never Let Me Go, and who is the future Peter Parker, and he would be the kind of actor you’d need to cast as a Norman Bates in a modern remake, which I would not advise doing. It’s not just his physical resemblance to Anthony Perkins though that would make him perfect for the role but the fact that he seems to carry a kind of wounded intensity in a very slight package.

  2. Which only makes Andrew Garfield an even more bizarre casting choice for Peter Parker.

    Also, fuck Gus Van Sant. The ratio of bullshit to talent for that guy is off the charts. Gus Van Sant: a hidden indicator of bad taste. Massively over-rated.
