Henry and June



Anaïs & June storyline from the film “Henry & June” [1990], starring Maria de Medeiros as Anaïs Nin, Uma Thurman as June Miller, and Fred Ward as Henry Miller

Synopsis for the film: “Philip Kaufman‘s brilliant film explores the erotic life of two individuals who became 20th Century literary giants. Upon meeting American author Henry Miller (Fred Ward) in Paris, 1931, a young writer name Anais Nin (Maria de Medeiros) embarks on a voyage of self-discovery and faithfully records every experience in her diary.

In their search for new truths, Anais and Henry are tantalized by Henry’s hauntingly sensual wife, June (Uma Thurman). Henry & June is an unforgettable journey into the uncharted territory of human relationship, based on the suppressed sections of Anais Nin’s diaries.”

Today’s Birthday: Guy De Maupassant (1850)


Guy de Maupassant (1850)

Maupassant was a 19th-century French writer considered one of the fathers of the modern short story. A protégé of Gustave Flaubert, Maupassant wrote with a simplicity, clarity, and objective calm that emulated the style of his mentor. He first gained attention with “Boule de Suif,” or “Ball of Fat,” and eventually published about 300 short stories, many of which are said to be unsurpassed in their genre. Why did Maupassant often dine at the restaurant at the base of the Eiffel Tower? More… Discuss

Pulp Fiction – Opening Theme (Dick Dale and His Del Tones – Miserlou)



Pulp Fiction is a 1994 crime film directed by Quentin Tarantino, who cowrote its screenplay with Roger Avary. The film is known for its rich, eclectic dialogue, ironic mix of humor and violence, nonlinear storyline, and host of cinematic allusions and pop culture references. The film was nominated for seven Oscars, including Best Picture; Tarantino and Avary won for Best Original Screenplay. It was also awarded the Palme d’Or at the 1994 Cannes Film Festival. A major critical and commercial success, it revitalized the career of its leading man, John Travolta, who received an Academy Award nomination, as did costars Samuel L. Jackson and Uma Thurman.

What? It’s just fiction…pulp fiction and a good one too! Not an assembly line movie, not a conveyor belt movie but the opposite: Totally non-linear, great small conversation and great soundtrack, great actors, great performance. Nice to remember and mention it.

Enjoy!
