Terry gave me my first job as a negative cutter on a film that ultimately was recut by three separate teams. I value my short time with him, digging up dirt on Ken Russell. When I left the offices, Terry handed me a German poster for The Devils.

Pete Townshend worked with him on Tommy seemingly almost more than Russell. He gave Rawlings nothing but high praise in his autobiography.

Always much preferred his When You Comin' Back Red Ryder? (1979) which is long overdue for a Blu Ray release.

Barbara Perry, known for her turn as 'Baskets' on the Dick Van Dyke Show, died on Sunday. I was familiar with her face but didn't know she had chops as a tap dancer.

R.I.P.

Mexican wrestler Silver King, who apparently collapsed and died during a match. He played the villain Ramses in the Jack Black Lucha movie Nacho Libre.

Absolutely wonderful and ravishing in Twin Peaks: The Return. Oh so sad, for someone with such vitality to go at such an untimely age.

I have a few films by Jean-Claude Brisseau in my 'to watch' pile but sadly have not managed to reach them as yet to be able to do an in depth assessment. From a casual glance however he did seem to have a particular interest in exploring female sexuality (inevitably mostly through a male gaze, with Brisseau often appearing in front of the camera in various roles himself) in such titles as 1989's Noce Blanche (perhaps his best known film, starring Vanessa Paradis in her first feature film at the height of her teen singer fame coming off of Joe le taxi and cover of Walk on the Wild Side), The Black Angel (with Michel Piccoli), 2002's Secret Things, 2006's The Exterminating Angels, 2008's À l'aventure and 2012's The Girl From Nowhere (NSFW).

He apparently completed a film only last year, Tempting Devils that does not seem to have received a UK release, but otherwise was pretty well represented on disc in the UK with everything from 2002 onward available on DVD at one point or another (plus his earliest features Un jeu brutale and The Sound and Fury). It is really the run from Noce Blanche to Workers For The Good Lord that seems in need of rediscovery at the moment (though everything else would benefit from a Blu-ray bump up).

Unfortunately I hated the only Brisseau film I've seen, Noce blanche. You can read my thoughts here, though they aren't favorable to the recently deceased

Machiko Kyo (1924-2019)

Kyo always seems young in my eyes -- because she pretty much ended her movie career in the 1960s. Although she worked in television until the 1980s, I never saw anything she did in this period. In addition to her most famous roles in Mizoguchi (Ugetsu, Princess Yang Kwei Fei, Street of Shame), Kurosawa (Rashomon), Ozu (Floating Weeds), I loved her as a Nancy Drew-ish cub reporter in Ichikawa's The Hole. Some obituaries:

She was always, always, always fantastic. In addition to the titles Michael listed, she was also great in Odd Obsession, Chushingura, and Gate of Hell.

I haven't seen Ichikawa's The Hole yet, I should get on that.
