I've been quite ill lately, and have spent some very late evenings attending the Chantal Akerman retrospective at the UCLA Film & Television Archive and the REDCAT. Fortunately I'm not the only Angeleno who needs his filmic fix. Franklin at konvolut m has faithfully recorded his Akerman-opinions after each screening, and Doug at Filmjourney managed to catch the documentary marathon, which I missed. Friday will be the final night of the retrospective. UCLA will be showing Night and Day followed by an encore presentation of From the Other Side. Next week filmgoers in Los Angeles should check out the Lars von Trier retrospective at the American Cinematheque.
