I saw One From The Heart for the first time at Mr. Coppola's "press screening" which was open to the public at Radio City Music Hall. At the time I was working across the street managing the New York Experience in the basement of the McGraw Hill building, which was such a surreal place, with Nathan Hale's hung effigy occasionally falling into the audience accidentally from above (it was supposed to swing out over the screen), and Sinatra's version of New York New York continually blaring across the lobby, I think I was in the perfect frame of mind for Mr. Coppola's film. When one is dealing with a film that is all about image, color, sound, movement and depth of field, which, to paraphrase Sam Fuller's monologue in the beginning of Godard's Pierrot le Fou, "is in a word: emotion," what one experiences is very hard to describe, as the meaning of the film is expressed by the overlapping of various cinematic forms that tell the characters' story, rather than leading a viewer to identify with these characters which is what normally happens in a studio film, but just let me say that it was magnificent, and that I am extremely happy to hear that the Blu ray might evoke that initial experience. The scene that I remember in particular is when the airplane takes off, which was as virtuoso a sequence as any I have seen in the cinema and seemed to somehow channel both the Dali-esque ballet sequence from Singing In The Rain (because of the use of the white lines on the parking lot pavement as sketched perspectives stretching outward into infinity)as well as (because of a use of color and detail that is simultaneously hyper-real and utterly artificial) Josef Von Strenberg's sublimely delirious Jet Pilot. I want to thank you, Mr. Harris, for bringing this to my attention!
