Right, I'm planning to pull my finger out over the next few weeks and put a few things up here. As a precursor, a few links:
An absolutely magnificent article by David Thomson on Hitchcock - you could remove the specifically cinematic vocabulary and use it to make a case for abstraction in any medium. I love the stuff about the marriage of order and disorder in Hitch's frames: I've always meant to accommodate the 'plane scene' in NbNW into my 'terror and flat landscapes' paper for precisely this reason.
Bradford is the first UNESCO city of film!
And something previously unknown to me: Paul McCartney's 'Temporary Secretary'. It might induce queasiness.
