Tragic. Terrifying. Beautiful.


The Lives of Others is the best movie I’ve seen in forever. Anyone refusing to see it should be interrogated as to his motives and then placed in solitary confinement.

    I too loved this movie. I found it so thought-provoking and surprisingly relevant.

    Hello Ted! Isn’t the internet amazing? I was googling looking for a blog post another friend of mine wrote about this movie and I saw your name and had to check it out. You look only a few days older than you did in 1971 and the same personality comes through, so I knew it was you. I have fond memories, which are stirred up when I hear Peggy Lee, read about Pauline Kael, or watch the Oscars.

    Anyway, I hope life has treated you well. I don’t have any complaints. I’ve had a a great career as an archaeologist for the federal government and am presently at Petersburg National Battlefield in Virginia. I still love movies–and this was a great one. From your profile, I’m sure I’ve enjoyed a lot of your work without realizing it.

    Keep on blogging!
