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 »

“If there are theories about me, I’d rather not know. Astrophysics – now that’s fascinating. String theory, worm holes, the expanding universe, the Big Bang versus the Big Bounce – those are the kind of theories that make you feel like living and understanding the mystery of the world. Film theory is just a pain in the ass.”
~ Claire Denis

“I had a knockoff Michael Kors bag that said MLK instead of MK. Jada told me that I shouldn’t have knockoff stuff. I told her that my philosophy is, Whatever the bag costs, I should be able to keep that amount of cash in the bag. If it’s a $300 purse, I have to put $300 in cash in that purse. I do not want a bag that is more expensive than the cash I have to put in it. Things are going good for me now, so I am graduating to your Fendis and your Guccis. But I better have the cash equivalent, or I’m not buying the purse. And if things start to go wrong, I’m going right back to my knockoffs. When you’re somebody like me, who’s been homeless, clothes are not that important. Clothes are not a roof over my head, food in my ­stomach, my family’s health—that’s what money is for. But fashion helps get more money. So, we ride.”
