Manics films.

Hi there, has anybody come across this list before: http://letterboxd.com/tsires/list/ma...movies/detail/ ?

I am wondering as I have just watched Woman in the Dunes as I remember Richey mentioning it somewhere before I saw this list. I can't remember where this was mentioned and was wondering if somebody could help me place the reference? That and the reference to the film MISSING (1982) that he (or the band) also apparently mentioned.

Thank you.

Wasn't the line in Rendition about Jack Lemmon a reference to the film Missing, which is about political disappearances in Chile? Think this was mentioned in interviews at the time.

Thanks Roi. I've tried looking for interviews but can't find any. Would you perhaps know any sources?

The Missing

I watched The Missing in November and it's really stayed with me. Top film. And at the end you may feel, like me, yes, this film influenced that song. Great sentiments in that movie. And what happened after is most interesting

I'm not sure of references to the film The Woman in the Dunes but there's a reference to the book from James in the interview linked (he mentions it when talking about Small Black Flowers....sounds kinda weird...) http://https://thequietus.com/articl...ew-simon-price

James mentions the film Missing quite a few times in his recent interviews re Even in Exile
