Stills taken from the 1962 short documentary Vive Le Tour, which someone was nice enough to upload a subtitled version onto youtube: parts 1 and 2. These festive trucks proceed the peloton throwing out all kinds of free stuff to spectators posted along the day’s stage. This year’s caravan was 20km long (about 12.5 miles) and consisted of 160 cars, it took 45 minutes for the entire thing to pass by.
A quiet film by Gideon Koppel set in a small town in Wales. trailer
Some stills from the first of a three part BBC documentary on the history and current status of the Harris Tweed industry.
Directed by Mark Romanek and shot by Adam Kimmel (Capote, Jesus’ Son, Beautiful Girls). I won’t get into details about what I didn’t like about this movie however I thought the photography was amazing as well as the wardrobes- chunky knits, wellies, etc.

I’ve never been one to really appreciate hippie music but I’ve been addicted to the soundtrack from Zabriskie Point, a film made by Michelangelo Antonioni who was also responsible for Blow Up (also with a great soundtrack by The Yardbirds and Herbie Hancock). The track listing is heavy on Pink Floyd and Gerry Garcia but the bonus improvised tracks are what are really special. Turn on, tune in, and drop out.
The love scene featuring Gerry doing his thing, and some earthy lovers doing theirs.
both French and English lp covers, I prefer the French ofcourse…
