Peter Yates, the director of two of my all-time favorite movies has recently passed away at the age of 81.
Not only are these two films exceptionally awesome, they’ve probably had more influence on my style, taste and interests than any other media I’ve ever been exposed to.
We’re talking bike racing, Steve McQueen, Italian stuff, car chases through San Francisco, etc etc etc.
R.I.P. Peter Yates

Yeah this is coming pretty late in the day but I just did this cool alleycat. Beaver Beavs got beat by the sickest Fuji Track Pro ever. I can’t even go into details it was that gnar. Oh and Beav met a straight-edge dude with a bunch of tattoos. It was very bromantic.
Anyway, today I’m in a French kinda mood. A Bout De Souffle (or Breathless for the Americans) is one of my favorite movies by one of my favorite directors, Jean-Luc Godard.
So stoked on this film from the Italian artisan of terror, Dario Argento. It’s got everything you ever wanted from an Argento flick: surreal suspense, unusual murders, psychic powers, beautiful lavish imagery and of course a killer score from Goblin.
This is the English dubbed version for American audiences, which is missing about 20 minutes of the more violent imagery from the original Italian cut — but if you want, you can see the original here (it’s in Italian, no subs).
