MILF
A Clockwork Orange


Introducing a new (irregular) sidebar feature, MILF: Landscape Architecture Film Series. In college I helped coordinate a film series with a different landscape theme each semester. Usually, whittling down the roster meant eliminating a lot of titles. MILF is my opportunity to resurrect those titles in an admittedly inconsequential format as it involves no viewing time and location. Simply take them as recommendations. Watch them anywhere and at anytime, in sequence, reversed or mixed, in part or in whole, in combination of future series or see one and no more ever again. You get the idea.

MILF:03 Nanoscapes
MILF:04 The World

  • MILF? Mom I'd Like to #*%!...a better choice of titles may have been more appropriate. Where do you find these videos?

  • Yes, MILF. It is a common acronym in some circles, but it's also the title of a fun little film series.

    More appropriate for what, whom, when? And should it?

    You can find the videos all over. I've checked and Amazon.com has all the tittles. Also try Facets Multi-Media, eBay, Netflix, your local public or university library, your local Blockbuster and similar chains, your local independent video store, a second-run or specialized movie theater, or friends and family.

  • MILF is not an acronym nor is it an abbreviation. It's a word unto itself, an etymological recombinantion of, what else, FILM. Or was it the result of a drunken game of Alphabetical Exquisite Corps at our Patent Office. In other words, it's the Landscape Architecture Film Series brought to you by Pruned. For your viewing pleasure.

  • Exquisite Corps? I suppose...

    Movies I'd Like to Film, I always thought it was. The retrospective longing. The Hollywood pull. All that sunshine. The fame... I coulda been a contenda...
