Dezlegare la ghicitoare

Pana la urma am aflat raspunsul. Imaginea cu Vincent Gallo si Karen Elson nu e dintr-un film cu toate ca mi-ar fi placut sa fie. E o campanie pentru YSL . Fotografiile apartin lui Michael Sanders. Aici toata seria de poze a campaniei.

Cautand posibilul film am dat si peste un videoclip mai vechi al lui Vincent Gallo

Filme de vazut

is the striking new documentary on the world and work of renowned artist Edward Burtynsky. Internationally acclaimed for his large-scale photographs of “manufactured landscapes”—quarries, recycling yards, factories, mines and dams—Burtynsky creates stunningly beautiful art from civilization’s materials and debris. The film follows him through China, as he shoots the evidence and effects of that country’s massive industrial revolution. With breathtaking sequences, such as the opening tracking shot through an almost endless factory, the filmmakers also extend the narratives of Burtynsky’s photographs, allowing us to meditate on our impact on the planet and witness both the epicenters of industrial endeavor and the dumping grounds of its waste.

In the spirit of such environmentally enlightening sleeper-hits as AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH and RIVERS AND TIDES, MANUFACTURED LANDSCAPES powerfully shifts our consciousness about the world and the way we live in it, without simplistic judgments or reductive resolutions.

Up The Yangtze

China’s Yangtze River—and all of the life that surrounds it—is undergoing a truly astonishing transformation wrought by the largest hydroelectric project in history, the Three Gorges Dam. Canadian documentary filmmaker Yung Chang returns to the gorgeous, now-disappearing landscape of his grandfather’s youth to trace the surreal life of a “farewell cruise” that traverses the gargantuan waterway.

With touching humanism and wry wit, Chang follows the microcosmic society of the luxury liner and the bitter irony of a young girl sent to work as a dish-washer aboard the ship—to provide for her peasant family as the river’s floodwaters drive them from their home. Up the Yangtze gives a human dimension to the wrenching changes facing not only an increasingly globalized China, but the world at large.

Mammoth + Wendy and Lucy
De abia astept sa vad Mammoth , ultimul film al lui Lukas Moodysoon care va iesi pe 23 ianuarie in Suedia. Cu siguranta este mult mai narativ decat Container.

E primul lui film in engleza, cu Michelle Williams si Gael García Bernal in rolurile principale. Ca sa va faceti o idee avem aici trailerul.

Apropo de Michelle Williams , Wendy and Lucy e unul dintre cele mai bune filme ale lui 2008 pe care l-am vazut. Foarte simplu , fara complicasenii inutile. Intr-un rol minuscul apare si Will Oldham , marele Bonnie Prince Billy.

Wendy and Lucy il gasiti aici

William Basinski - Disintegration Loop 1.1

"On september 11th i was on my roof in brooklyn, less than 1 nautical mile from the world trade center, our beacon, our compass: that which towered so far above every other skyscraper in nyc, my nightlight. my neighbors and i witnessed the end of the world as we knew it that day. we saw those towering structures collapse before our very eyes, on a crystal clear day we saw the incomprehensible change of landscape: like a volcano disappearing behind trees, we saw this magnificent minimalist human structure disappear before our very eyes. we were appalled. despite the catastrophic fires, we had no idea that these gigantic structures would collapse... cascade below the lower manhattan skyline. but it happened. we were in shock. we sat on the roof terrace in lawn chairs and watched the fires burning all day into night with the disintegration loops playing in the background. the human scale of the catastrophe we couldn't even comprehend at the time. that would come next, in tears and agony. this was the end of the world we all knew was coming sooner or later, but had forgotten about...put in the back of our minds. that evening i recorded on video the static image of the lower manhattan skyline billowing smoke as the last hour of daylight turned to darkness. the film is entitled disintegration loop 1.1 and is dedicated to the memory of those who perished in the atrocities of september 11th, 2001." - william basinski

Dead Man’s Bones
Ryan Gosling ( a jucat in Half Nelson ) are o formatie. Pana acum am ascultat doar o melodie a lor care suna bine.
