The One about my COACH scarves

Are you a person into scarves (or Kremer, Muffler, neck-wraps)? According to wikipedia (so not sure how accurate this is), one of the origins of the scarf was as far back in ancient Rome in order to keep clean. Back then it was called a sudarium (which means “sweat cloth”) and was used to wipe sweat from the neck and face during the hot weather and was placed around the […]

The One about Hyun-seung Lee’s “Il Mare”

Today’s selection for Cineaste365 goes to Hyun-seung Lee’s “il mare” (시월애, Siworae) starring Lee Jung-jae and Jeon Ji-hyun. A US version was made titled “The Lake House” with Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock but that film was nowhere as memorable as the original 2000 Korean film. “il mare” is just a magical film that I don’t think I can get tired of….but I do have another Jeon Ji-hyun film that […]

The One about Charles Chaplin’s “City Lights”

A film that has been beloved by many Chaplin fans, “City Lights” has been a long awaited title that fans have hoped to see release by the Criterion Collection, even before Criterion had the rights to release Chaplin titles. It was also a title that was difficult to obtain unless you wanted to pay a lot for the Warner Brothers DVD that was released back in 2004 or purchased the […]
