You know this film will be beautiful. You will expect something from its reputation, from it’s director and from the fact that the film was famously shot almost entirely in the magic hour of dawn and dusk. This was Terence Malick’s second film and his last for 20 years and, until The Tree of Life, it was the work known as the visionary director’s most striking. You know this film will be beautiful but will it be anything else?
This film is artificial. Cheap and tacky like the magazines and images sold from behind the counter at the news agent where our anti-hero Mark (Karlheinz BÃ¶hm) has a second job taking erotic pictures. There is nothing here that is real. From the characters cobbled together psychology, to the technicolor palette, to the supposedly real footage filmed from Mark’s psychotic camera. Even the setting seems strange. It is geographically London, but beyond that it is nowhere, a false imagining of an unreal world. If this is the world that my parents inhabited then District 9 will happen tomorrow.
A male and a female actor -both aged 25-35 -are needed for short film to be filmed in Devon, at Budleigh Salteron near Exeter.
There are too few cinemas that play the re-releases. It’s probably because audiences are too thin on the ground for a classic from 1934. Particularly as the modern cinema-goers are too enamored with spectacle and the hype-of-the-new to be motivated to discover a cinema cast in a different mold. It’s a massive shame, as they are cutting themselves off from a truly majestic form of cinema that, in lionising the written and spoken word, create worlds full of wit, spark and joy.

The exhibition for the film Mort-gage by David Salas and Benjamin Borley, which took place at the Exeter Picturehouse, was more than a feature of the promotional to-do list, it was an integral part of the collaborative, creative process. As well as showcasing the film it gave a creative context to the movie and sparked some new ideas. Benjamin Borley explains more
“The Mort-gage exhibition was something we were keen to do from the start, so keen, in fact, that we booked the space two years before we started work on the film! It wasn’t just a question of publicity but because, for us, cinema is not only the seventh art but a creative collaborative space where all kinds of different artistic practices meet and from them is born a (hopefully!) coherent and consistent work.
