AC asks about my upcoming class at the Maybe Logic Academy (http://www.maybelogic.net/mla-courses/current/461-class-b ), "In this you give a movie recommendation for each week, are we to watch this a couple of times during the week, or just once. if just once, do we do it at the end of the week or at the beginning? Or is it just left up to the person to decide?"
I would leave it up to the individual. I plan to start watching the movies at the beginning of November, and I hope to finish watching them all before the class ends. I've seen them all before, but I look forward to rewatching them. I also plan to watch some of the bonus material and alternative versions on the Criterion edition of Mr. Arkadin. After I posted the syllabus I remembered Netflix didn't have The Magnificent Ambersons, but it just got rereleased and they acquired it.
Typically people from all over the world take the Maybe Logic classes. I realize that some people might not have a chance to watch the films. I suspect they will still enjoy the class.
Films greatly influenced Bob Wilson, and I hope the cinema component of the class will illuminate that. Chinatown particularly influenced Schrödinger's Cat.
I remember having dinner with Bob in 1995. I wanted to talk about my Finnegans Wake study group, and he just wanted to talk about his Orson Welles study group.
