…doing justice to Méliès’ seminal A Trip to the Moon is taking a little longer than planned.
But normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.
(UPDATE: It’s taking a bit longer than I originally expected, thanks to the biggest hard drive crash I’ve had in years followed by my entire family being laid low by a hideous stomach bug - but I should have made a full recovery from both in the next few days)
In the meantime, here’s a selection of links about the film:
- The complete film with piano and English narration (part one/part two)
- The complete film with electronic soundtrack (part one/part two)
- BFI Film and TV Database entry.
- Internet Movie Database entry.
- Wikipedia entry.
- Filmreference.com entry (with extensive bibliography).
- Jshaide’s review (Rotten Tomatoes forum) - part one/part two
