I’m giving myself a challenge, and would like for you to help –
I want to write a group of poems, no less than five, based on film – keeping in mind that I don’t necessarily want the poem simply to retell the film. The poems do not have to be connected to each other. The pieces should spring from or react to the films in some manner – character, setting, theme, dialogue, action…
Here’s a list of films I have already successfully written about – in some form – and I’m pleased with the results:
Aguirre, Wrath of God
The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant
No Direction Home
Through a Glass Darkly
Eyes Wide Shut
Bride of Frankenstein
I realize that I can’t will a poem into place – That’s not the type of writer I am, nor would that be my goal. The film and I must connect in some way.
Any ideas about ... or names of films?
