Chaney fools

Off to see À bout de souffle at Cines Méliès, where you get to see old rubbish for next to nothing in the company of vaguely camp Barcelona. Last night was–by mistake–Persona by Ingmar Bergman, which is basically slow and boring Lon Chaney for people who are aware they’re too smart for the real thing. I’ve never seen any stuff by the Spanish Lon Chaney, Paul Naschy, but it’s probably rather too arch for Méliès.
