Directed by Peter Hyams. Billy Crystal, Gregory Hines, Joe Pantoliano, Dan Hedaya. One of the better buddy cop movies with one of the weirdest pairing of actors. Billy Crystal and Gregory Hines mean action! Good movie. Recommended.
Mike Hammer. New 1985.
Directed by Michael Mann. From the book Red Dragon by Thomas Harris. Good book.
World Cup Final. 10 a.m. Central FOX.
Directed by James Foley. Chris Penn, Sean Penn, Christopher Walken, Crispin Glover, Tracey Walter, Kiefer Sutherland. I have this on VHS. Based on a true story. Recommended.
Illustrations of Exotic Entomology. NY Public Library. Farewell, My Lovely by Raymond Chandler has a scene with a bug at the police station near the end that is simply unbelievable. One of the great things I’ve read. A pink-headed bug. Still trying to get back to Homicide.
Robby Muller died on July 3. A lot of his movies have come up recently: Barfly, To Live and Die in L.A., Mad Dog and Glory, Repo Man, The Believers. I have the Criterion DVD of Paris, Texas. I love the shot in the car pulling into the motel.
1986 movies. You’ve lost that loving feeling.

A favorite of mine as a kid with Space Ghost. Hanna-Barbera. Originally 1967-69 CBS. 18 episodes, 36 segments.
Some of my earliest Kinja posts were on history of photography. All you had to do was post images in a row. Atget one of my favorite photographers. Discovered by the surrealists and Man Ray but not appreciated until after his death. He wandered the streets of Paris with a camera.
