It's Not Even Past


             In 'Requiem for a nun'  William Faulkner wrote 'the past is never dead, it's not even past'. The pasts of both the director and star of Lady from Shanghai are alive in the facets of the film ; fresh, hurting, unexamined, and damning as all unprocessed traumas are.

Never Want Anything Very Hard ......


              There's always something to do if you don't have to consider work or consider the cost. It's no real fun but the rich don't know that. They never had any. They never want anything very hard except maybe somebody else's wife and that's a pretty pale desire compared with the way a plumber's wife wants new curtains for the living room.
