Some notes Hollis Frampton made for his massive unfinished film cycle, Magellan. From the Hollis Frampton Collection, housed at New York’s Anthology Film Archives. Used by permission of the Frampton estate.
“1) The leads -- Melanie Griffith, Jeff Daniels and Ray Liotta -- were never better. 2) Outstanding ensemble cast with Margaret Colin (Independence Day), Tracey Walter (Repo Man), Charles Napier . . .”
“Never been a huge fan of the Hepburn/Tracy pairing (I've always preferred her films with Cary Grant), but this is an absolutely marvelous piece of film writing that makes me want to watch this particular . . .”
“Jon, I sent you an email regarding my defective BIGGER THAN LIFE blu ray. Not only has the brilliant color faded, but picture starts breaking up at 19 minutes and continues to do so after that point . . .”
