Absolutely Absurd
Philippe Mora, the Australian-U.S. Producer of incredibly Jewish stories which are based on his own family is now showing his film Absolutely Modern on Amazon Instant Video and we think you should tune in. If Sandy Lieberson of Film London says "Philippe Mora never ceases to surprise, challenge and amuse. He is a one man film industry and satire is his weapon,” then it’s worth the look.

Philippe is best known in the film world for Brother Can You Spare a Dime (which was produced by Sanford Lieberson and David Puttnam and edited by Jeremy Thomas!) It was a great film, a nostalgic look back at the Great Depression with contemporary archival footage and film clips picturing James Cagney as an American Everyman that Dimension might still have for U.S. Other films he is known for — Mad Dog Morgan (1976), Howling III (1987) and Communion(1989) are just a few on a long, long list of films. Check him out on IMDb or IMDbPro now.

Move over Samuel Beckett
Can't think of anyone that has the ability to use his unbridled talent to take us on a journey into his reality. He combines his artists view with his writing and directing skills to create imagery on the screen that is his palette. Thank you indeed Philippe.
