Two Films & a Trailer for a Sunday Afternoon: Jung, diPrima, & Ginsberg

Three noteworthy celluloid adventures for a rainy afternoon. The Jung hits a tad of a lull a little ways in and picks up steam. Allen is Allen, a joy to listen to and behold and I can't wait to see the film on Diane di Prima.

y'all gonna enjoy Diane's

Seminary Poems

will be a pleasant (I'm fairly sure)

her hair in a samurai topknot
she sits in warrior posture
in her blue-rimmed sunglasses

I found a nicely done interview with Diane DiPrima, from 2010, in the website of the literary magazine Verbicide. DiPrima talks a lot about creativity, her experiences with publishing her own work and publishing other people, her notions about literary movements, and quite a bit else.

The interview is here if you want to take a look. (The interview takes up two pages in the website -- at the bottom of the page at the above link, click the number 2 to go the remainder of the interview.)

Ed, yes, to the Seminary Poems, I've a copy around here somewhere I need to dig out.
