Auteur Watch - Reece Auguiste
Oh good! Another short one. Time for another flashback to a cusp between decades: the 80s and 90s. For me, the '80s is the last decade in which its icons are clearly identifiable. After the 90s, it all turns to mush, as the flow of information across the globe accelerates, and bands like Deee-Lite get publicity. Wonder whatever happened to them? They're probably on Wikipedia or something. Then again, the 2000s will always be remembered for those who lived it as the time of two things: the Lord of the Rings movies, and the failure of national American politics. Can't get much clearer than that! But back to Reece Auguiste, known for Twilight City, a documentary that's not about the goings-on in Forks, Washington, and Mysteries of July. The trail runs cold after that. I guess no one was interested in what mysteries that Reece would conjure up after that, and I'm guessing Reece explored the mysteries of parenthood rather than filmmaking for the next twenty odd years. But they do get thanks for something called Jenny's Dreamland! Hope springs eternal. If Bruce Wayne can get back into the game after getting his back broken, so can Reece, damn it. So can Reece.
