European cinema is the best. But sometimes, we need to remind the rest of the word about it.
Here some clips from a recent campaign.
First, I ran 20 miles for my preparation for the NYC marathon. It took me 3 hours and 12 minutes.
I think my body is getting used to longer distances. In a few weeks, it should be able to swallow miles with no hiccups.
I also went for the new Woody Allen movie, Scoop with Scarlett Johansson and Hugh Jackman.
We know WA can be really obnoxious. In this movie, he is, but this is really part of the movie.
I saw for the first time this master piece by Ernst Lubitsch from 1942.
It is funny, witty and superbly acted and directed.
If you haven’t seen it, buy it or rent it.
Here is the IMDB entry.
Kevin Smiths “Superman Reborn” & Why it Didn’t Happen.:
Kevin Smith tells, in detail, why he wasn’t chosen to write the new Superman. This is a 19 minute video segment but the humor and especially the ending make it worth the viewing.
great director + great cast -> great movie.
I just saw the Inside Man.
- great plot on par with the Usual Suspects
- great cast
- great soundtrack
But my favorite aspect of the movie is that this is a movie about New York. It takes place in New York, it was shot in New York and it is about New York. At some point, they need to identify a language played on a tape. Nobody seems to recognize the language. What do they do? They put the tape on speakerphone and ask the crowd outside if they recognize it. Sure enough, someone does.
Thank you Mr Spike Lee and your team.
