Doctor Strange Love. So the thin hip font used to cover the whole screen is nothing new (before I saw this movie, I thought this font is a new hipster thing for video creators). Kubrick had been doing so in 1960s! And why do you think he uses the two airplane feeding gas shot for the opening? hahaha, I find that sequence so funny and erotic ^^ I guess it has to do with the music ;)
Working on a new script about two Chinese girls’s road trip in America. First feature?! Big production! oh my~my heart is beating so hard.
Recently, I have grown more favor for filmmaking. Because a film asks for so much work, and in the end, if it’s bad, it’s going to be evidently bad. Nothing can be hidden away from it. Not like making art, you can make some crap, and give it a pretentious “meaning” by writing an artist statement.
I have had fun making art. But now it’s time to making some serious shit! Like a feature!
So tonight was the final performance of my new video theater project. The title is called “Mauvais Garçon”. It’s about girl and guy’s relationship.
Here are some of the lines, I thought it’s pretty funny:
- “At age 30, you will have saggy balls.”
- “I’d rather have saggy balls than an ugly face with saggy lines, menopause on my legs, and saggy tits with horrible skin.”
- “You said you are going to call me 15 min ago, but you still haven’t.”
- “You are so good at timing, you should become a clock.”
Thanks Vans for providing the cactus, thanks Amy for great documentation and costume design, big thanks to Anne for the amazing yoga poses. Can’t do without all your help! :)
Hey, I’m working on a new project. It’s going to be both a video and a theater piece about a bunch of bad boys, narrated by a girl. It’s pretty funny, I’m laughing when I write the script.Hahaha
The title will be called Mauvais Garçon!
So lately, I have been wondering about how will it be like when you get old. So I went to see this movie. There are moments when, the reality of life just become so unbearable to confront..and the ending was unexpected.
Before seeing the movie, I was expecting to see what love means to old couple. The amazing thing about French/European film is, they never give you an answer, but keeps you wonder and getting more confused.
"My films are intended as polemical statements against the American ‘barrel down’ cinema and its dis-empowerment of the spectator. They are an appeal for a cinema of insistent questions instead of false (because too quick) answers, for clarifying distance in place of violating closeness, for provocation and dialogue instead of consumption and consensus."
"Pornography, it seems to me, is no different from war films or propaganda films in that it tries to make the visceral, horrific, or transgressive elements of life consumable."”
Film is 24 lies per second at the service of truth, or at the service of the attempt to find the truth.”
"I do think that our perception of reality is fragmentary, and in 20th-century literature, it’s totally normal to not describe reality as something whole and completely transportable and explicable. That’s been accepted in novels. But genre films always pretend that reality is transportable, which means that it is explicable."
Hmm, another thing though is it’s so hard to tell which country is a film from nowadays. For example, Amour is a film shot in France, actors spoke in French, the story happens in Paris, But the production is between Austria, France and Germany. The Director was born in Germany, but an Austrian nationality..maybe I was not so correct to call it a French film.
How come i just discovered this movie?! soooo good!! ohohoh~~
Metropolis is a 1927 German expressionist science-fiction film directed by Fritz Lang.
