CLASSIC SYMBIOTIC COLLABORATIONS: THE STAR – DIRECTOR BLOGATHON:
I hosted my first blogathon waaay back during a cold and blizzard-y New York City weekend six months ago.
As I make my way through each essay, I see that the collaborative teams chosen by these bloggers show a kind of love…or, just love actually, in the teams’ relationships. For a writer-director to have an actor corporeally embody his ( her ) words and vision is a dream. For an actor to have a character so vivid to inhabit…or the blank canvas to paint with must be wonderfully creative.
These entries have served to make me want to revisit these films or see them for the first time. And for that, I am grateful for their contributions. So here they are again. Good reading for a cold winter’s night. Good reading for a warm summer’s day. Good reading:

The blogathon was filled with emotion and quite a heady way to start the year.
You all made it a success. A blogathon is only as good as the bloggers who participate. Thank you.
Rats. I thought you were going to do a sequel….
I’m still holding off on doing a Kurt Russell/John Carpenter entry.
L0L!!! Never going to cover eras that current on my blog. 🙂
Oh, well, OK… BTW still waiting for you to join up on my current blogathon (if you’re interested.)
If I can think of a film, I’ll surely chime in. Thanks for the invite.
