Hello all — Cuckmander in Cheif O’Keeffe here! As I’m sure you see on the homepage, we’re gonna skip the meeting on the 23rd to discuss Wild Strawberries — sounds like a lot of people are gonna be busy with Holiday stuff!

Long time, no post! First off, I want to thank everyone for being a part of our first year of C.U.C.K. I’ve been exposed to a great deal of movies I may have never seen otherwise, gotten to revisit some films through a new lens, and most importantly spend some great time with friends.

Movie #10! Wowza, good on us for keepin’ a regular meeting! I’m very excited to be starting Elaine May, digging into the filmography of arguably the Mother of Modern Comedy one one of the best screenwriters to ever do the dang thing. May’s screenwriting credits include Tootsie, Labyrinth, and The Birdcage to name just a… Continue reading Pre-Meeting #10 (A New Leaf)
Another late post! But not a post-meeting post, so we’re holding on strong.

The main reason… Continue reading Pre-Meeting #9

Sup my lil’ Cuckles! We all know Godzilla, but until very recently I’d never consciously watched a Godzilla movie! I feel like, much like James Bond or Jake Sully, you can feel like you’ve absorbed what their “whole thing” without ever seeing one of the movies that made them a cultural icon. Terror of MechaGodzilla… Continue reading Pre-Meeting #6 (Terror of MechaGodzilla)
Hello All! For future reference, I’m trying to get better ay making sure this blog is consistently updated by the Monday before a meeting (Next meeting 3/4!). Shouldn’t be too much trouble — but ya boy gets tired sometimes. Last week we had a great discussion about Daughters of The Dust, and its dreamlike depiction… Continue reading Pre-Meeting #5 (The Umbrellas of Cherbourg)
