If you’re into movie poster design, have a browse of Terry Posters’ collection. Offbeat, awe-inspiring stuff.
If you’re heading to Japan in the near future, I’d also exhort you to take a trip to the National Film Center in Tokyo; they’re having an exhibition of Czech posters of the 50s-80s from the Terry Posters collection and it’s gorgeous.
New ep of the podcast, we argue about Gaspar Noé’s provocative and controversial Irréversible and talk about the increasing importance of the international film market on Hollywood faire such as Pacific Rim and World War Z.
Just returned from seeing Before Midnight at the gorgeous State Theatre with fellow Linklater fangirl, last-baudelaire. There is much to say, but I don’t wish to spoil anything, so I’ll refrain from waxing lyrical for the moment. However, I will say three things: 1) BM definitely feels like a necessary, intelligent progression of the Before series (hurrah), 2) Julie Delpy is fucking hilarious and 3) be prepared to be hit right in the feels.
At long last, I have experienced the much-hyped phenomenon that was Drive. Expectations were high and not quite met, but that’s ok. The fact that I’d heard so much about it already meant that the movie held few surprises - obviously not a failing of the film, but unfortunately I think it detracted from the ‘freshness’ of my experience. I held some reservations about the overt arthouse-ness (such…excessively long…pauses), but on the whole I loved it. I can see where the ‘style over substance’ accusations against Refn might be coming from, and if it lacks the restraint of Drive, I can understand why the critical reaction to Only God Forgives has been so brutally negative. But man, given the levels of stylistic creativity and control on display in Drive, it’s hard to be too concerned about a shortfall in ‘substance’… Anyway, this is probably all old news to the rest of the film-watching population, I’m going to go belatedly obsess over this movie and its soundtrack elsewhere now.
