Auteur Watch - Sally Potter
Everybody's turning 60! What a depressing age to be. But Sally's got quite the C.V. to show for it! Look at that. Director, composer... is she not one of those lucky exceptional few that Ayn Rand kept trying to kiss up to? I hear she also fills in for Bonnie Raitt on the road sometimes. Still, there's probably no topping all the hoopla around Orlando. I think even she'd admit that. Not that Yes and Rage weren't all the rage in their own rights, of course, but there's nothing like making your first big impression on the international stage, cinematically. So it's hard to say which decade is Potter's favourite. Personally, I'd have to go with the 70s. I mean, look at that break in between Hors d'oeuvres and Thriller! Eight years! Good Lord. A lot of strutting around to The Bee Gees in high heels with goldfish in the heels, giant red-colored Afro wigs and bell-bottom jeans.
