Arthur Meiselman | Scene4 | Viewings and An Actor's Lament | I decided not to avoid the timely viewings of as many of this year's Oscar nominees that I could take. I took the five leading contenders: The Hurt Locker, District 9, Inglourious Basterds, Avatar and Crazy Heart. The first four can be categorized in a simple phrase: they are video games. | Scene4 Magazine-March2010
Scene4 - INSIGHT - Asia Through A Thai Looking Glass | The arts of Asia abide � as expansive and merchandised as in any other part of the world. What supports this is the lingering vibrancy of colonialism. There are only small traces of the political colonial powers of the last century. Today, it is the rampage of the corporate colonial powers that divides and sub-divides the Asian world�and they don�t need flags with marching bands.| Arthur Meiselman | Scene4 Magazine - March 2010
Arthur Meiselman | Scene4 | The Passing of a Life | Earlier this year, a friend and colleague, Julius Krinski died at 81, in Jomtien, Thailand. A Hungarian/Australian expatriate, he was a remarkable man - an author, a Bon Vivant, and a world-class lover. With a poignant sadness, I remember an interview with him in 2005. | Scene4 Magazine-April 2010
Arthur Meiselman | Scene4 | First Things Last | The reason I collect these works of art and non-art is because they are part of my time continuum. They exist with me in the present, spread out in all space/time directions, and they are my friends. | Scene4 Magazine-May 2010
Scene 4 | Special Issue -
Arthur Meiselman | Scene4 | Kubrick Remembered redux | As each year goes by, more and more people realize what film artists have known since the 1960�s... he was and remains singular among the handful of unique filmmakers in the 20th century. As one director mused:
Arthur Meiselman | Scene4 | Orson Welles | Seventy years ago, Orson Welles created �Citizen Kane� and it remains the zenith, the apex of filmmaking. It completed the migration of theatre into cinema. No film before or since defined the nucleus of cinema, the art form of the 20th century, as this seminal 1941 masterpiece did.| Scene4 Magazine - September 2011
Arthur Meiselman | Scene4 | The Story of Blue | Alan Blue didn�t die last week. He probably will, soon. He isn't old and he isn't young. He has been a wayfarer through his life, one who never changed. He was an errand boy, a clerk, a waiter, an actor, not a husband nor a father or a relative. | Scene4 Magazine - August 2011
Arthur Meiselman | Scene4 | UpThe Carriage Trade! - Redux | I�ll take the lower class audiences � they make a playwright�s writing-agony worth agonizing over � they make an actor�s performance worth its salt � and they don�t give a damn about directors and dramaturgs and all the other frou-frou functionaries who get in between them and the live bodies on stage. On with the show! And I�ll take the upper class audiences too, of course. | Scene4 Magazine - October 2011
Arthur Meiselman | Scene4 | The Q Factor | George Santayana and others aphoristically proclaimed that to ignore history is to be doomed to repeat it. True? Perhaps, with this caveat: the human species is a collective of behavior, habitual, ritual, repetitive behavior�not doomed to repeat its history, rather self-programmed to recycle itself� and its history. | Scene4 Magazine - November 2011
