Will any theater put these side-by-side? Since it’s a Lee Daniels film, I would expect the finished film to reflect the iconography of both posters.

John Sloss At TIFF’s “Studio Mogul” Series (12’17”)

Making David Lynch’s “The Big Dream” (9’51”)

Guillermo Del Toro on GODZILLA (1’41”)

[Criterion.]

Teasing THE CANYONS (1’15”)

“Downtown” for Calvin Klein, By David Fincher, With Rooney Mara (1’03”)

The glimmering of inconsequence… Angles on cafe to compare with Girl With The Dragon Tattoo; Rooney Mara walking same cadence as cyclist in zebra crossing; sugar crystals in coffee instead of Godardian cream; cuttingly crisp and creased white blouse under fitted form of lightest black leather blouson of highest odor; taffeta dress knee-length as girl-kick of high-arched feet; whoosh that takes a page and a cloth book ribbon aloft as she watches with sleepy interest; sad eyes, cruel bangs; puppy!; smile of adult confidence and mature satisfaction; long fingers, fingertips gently flex at lower corner of frame to the slight sound of distant siren. A near-waking dream to a song on earbuds, turning in space, the slightest turn of body, profile, eyelids, eyelashes, feet, fingers… That’s… gorgeous.

Quote Unquotesee all »

“The difference between poetry and prose, and why if you’re not acculturated to poetry, you might resist it: that page is frightening. Why is it not filled? The two categories of people who don’t feel that way are children and prisoners. So many prison poets; they see that gap and experience it differently. I’m for the gap!”
~ Poet Eileen Myles

“Wise men build bridges, foolish men build barriers.”
~ T’Challa
