Volume 8, Issue 1 / January 2004

In this issue

Offscreen is proud to kick off 2004 with an interview with legendary German director Werner Herzog. The January 2004 issue also features two essays that analyze the now hot Gus Van Sant’s 1998 curio, Psycho. In the essay “Barbarian Invasions” Daniel Garrett asks of himself: “What is a minor work of art, and what a major one? How do the perceptions about the social value of characters in film translate into one’s estimation of a film’s importance?” These are questions that occur when Daniel Garrett views two films focusing on Native Americans, Randy Redroad’s Haircuts Hurt and Norma Bailey’s Cowboys and Indians: The J.J. Harper Story, and then sees Denys Arcand’s The Barbarian Invasions. The January issue concludes with a review of the eagerly anticipated double DVD set, “By Brakhage: an anthology.” (ed. Donato Totaro)
