Last night I went to a double feature of Roman Polanski's Rosemary's Baby and Dario Argento's Inferno last night at the Castro Theatre here in San Francisco. It's always an amazing experience seeing any film at the Castro. This particular evening they projected a Halloween-themed cat & pumpkin image on the curtain whilst the organist (who always performs before the show) played Bach's Toccata e Fuga. (My attempt to capture it on my blackberry pictured below)

Rosemary's Baby is obviously an incredible film, shot beautifully with gorgeous dream sequences and extremely thoughtful production design. But in terms of imagery, Inferno struck me a bit more on the big screen. Characters weaving from exaggerated interior to exaggerated interior, the multicolored lighting, the small details like bulbous glass doorknobs and extreme closeups of details that would normally go unnoticed. Oh also, babes everywhere...Here are some stills I gathered.

So now, what will you be for Halloween? I think I've been coerced into being Baby Spice - my initial idea was to be half of Yin & Yang, slightly disappointed the ying to my yang will be in a different city for the holiday. Feel free to take this idea - wouldn't want to see it go to waste!

Until next time..
