Monthly Archives: May 2018
So May was very different from April in that I didn’t watch nearly as many films directed by women as I had intended. Mostly this was because there were a bunch of films expiring from FilmStruck that I had to watch. Like, so many films. You’ll see. As always, the whole list of everything I watched in May plus my favorites can be found after the cut.
This documentary will not only cover Catherine E. Coulson’s time as the Log Lady on Twin Peaks, but it will also cover her work with the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, her work behind the scenes of films like Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and Eraserhead, her early life and start as an actress, and more.
There are some really fun perks for donating and some very rare footage, including an extended interview with David Lynch about his decades long friendship with Catherine, that will only see the light of day if the project gets funded.
Director Richard Green was a producer on the 2002 documentary David Lynch Presents: I Don’t Know Jack and can be seen in Mulholland Dr. (in Club Silencio).

I didn’t see as many films in April as I normally would have, mostly because I work A. LOT. of late nights. That said, most of what I watched in April was directed by women and it was so refreshing. It felt like A Year With Women again. There’s just so many great films by women left for me to discover! The end of April included the TCM Classic Film Festival, but attending the festival as an employee is very different from when I attended as press (read: I actually have to work and don’t get to see very many films), but I did attend TCMFF again this year (my 8th festival; 3rd being on staff) and it is always the best week of my year. I only saw four films (all ones I’d seen before) + one short (new-to-me by Bill Morrison!), but I was lucky enough to see several fascinating panels and I got to meet Gillian Armstrong (!!!), James Ivory, and John Toll so it was a blast. As always, everything I watched plus some favorites can be found after the cut.
