RARA-AVIS: Losey [was Geoffrey Homes/Daniel Mainwaring]

Ah, Joseph Losey. A natural for noir. His _The Trout_ made such an impression that I could not review it. His noir version of Don Giovanni is magnificent, noir Mozart.

Some time ago I started to write a novella based on Losey's life and work, but I made the fatal mistake of watching his films. I ended up disoriented and my scheme fell to pieces. Of the great directors, I find him the most difficult to understand, even more difficult than Tarkovsky.

Maybe I will dig up that manuscript and rely only on memory and atmosphere. Sometimes research can kill it.

Best regards,
