The late Lloyd Fonvielle was a producer, screenwriter, fiction and nonfiction writer who wrote eloquent essays about film at his website Mardescortesbaja: A Journal of Visual Culture. He especially admired Ben Johnson and the films of John Ford. Here are some pertinent links, but there is much more to be enjoyed at the site, which fortunately for us is still available. Lloyd met Ben during the production of Cherry 2000 and contributed some remarks regarding that film (not yet reposted on this site).
