Tonight I went to a Pedro Costa double feature: O Sangue and Ossos. Both were fantastic, but O Sangue was one of the most beautiful films I've ever seen, in terms of lighting and composition. Unfortunately, Costa's films never get US distribution and are also unavailable on dvd. If you live in a bigger city and get a chance to catch something by this guy at an art house, you should do it. We here in Columbus, Ohio are lucky enough to have all of his films screening this week and next and will also get a chance to ask him questions tomorrow night as he will be here to screen his film Colossal Youth. I will be there with wide eyes and a grin the size of Wyoming.
