Specials: Doug Cummings on “Silence”; Also: “Rescue Dawn”; and Peter Sellers

Here’s Doug Cummings’ new Masters of Cinema essay on Masahiro Shinoda’s film Silence, which is based on Shusaku Endo’s extraordinary novel. As you probably know, Martin Scorsese’s next film is his own adaptation of the same source material. I urge you to read the novel before you see the film’s. It’s unforgettable.

Here’s J. Robert Parks on Rescue Dawn: (http://framingdevice.org/?p=239). ¬†And oh, here’s Nate Bell on the same film.

And finally, via Mark Shea, a YouTube clip of Peter Sellers as Lawrence Olivier as Richard III as John Lennon:
