Friday's Photo

Today's photograph was shot by Daphne Wright in From V during the snowfall in early January. The picture was taken on a Nikon D60 and the image reflects the stark beauty of the recent cold snap.

Film Appreciation, Form IV

On Mr. Coldrick's recommendation, Mr. Watts's Form IV view the 'Dekalog'.

Director Stanley Kubrick once described 'Dekalog' as the only masterpiece he could name in his lifetime. 
This is a series of ten shorts created for Polish Television, with plots loosely based upon the Ten Commandments, directed by Krzysztof Kieslowski. Two of these, Dekalog 5 and 6, are shorter cuts from the feature-length films--Krotki film o zabijaniu (A Short Film About Killing) and Krotki film o milosci (A Short Film About Love), respectively. They deal with the emotional turmoil suffered by humanity, when instinctual acts and societal morality conflict.
