35mm print!

Playing with a 35mm print of Radiohead’s Daydreaming, directed by Paul Thomas Anderson!

“An exceptionally strong cast adds substance to the facile storyline about a mysterious stranger, Leland Gaunt (von Sydow), who opens the antique shop of the title in Castle Rock, Maine, and, by tapping into the inhabitants’ acquisitive desires, sets them at one another’s throats. As Fraser C Heston has observed, there are no supernatural beings here – the only monster is avarice… The director has a strong eye for visual detail and expansive composition.” –Time Out (London)

Part of the series “Stephen King on Film”

  • Year 1993
  • Director Fraser Clarke Heston
