Werner Herzog signs copies of our new 13 Bluray set in our luxurious conference room.
“Now where do I sign this Blu-ray? Ah yes, very good. Ahem:
Life is death and decay and in the end time consumes and destroys us all.
Hugs and kisses,
That’s how you write an inscription for an autograph.
What a boss
AND IT’S BACK ON MY DASH.
NO ONE’S GEEK GAME IS STRONGER THAN COLBERT’S GEEK GAME.
there may be a day I stop reblogging this, but today is not that day
I will never not laugh at James Franco’s reaction.
man, it’s almost like Stephen Colbert has a team of writers on his show that can look up these references for him. He is THAT GOOD.
”The most fascinating cinema belongs to the Third World, to the emergent countries, because they had real issues to struggle with, they really want to do something to fight those problems. To americans, the world needs to be explained and explicable through film. For them you need to go home unconcerned. That’s exactly what I’m not interested in.” - Michael Haneke
The reason is, and I understand it… The fact that it became a story at all is because of Matt Damon. He remembered verbatim a drunk conversation we had in Chicago and repeated it to USA Today. I’d talked about it before and nobody gave a shit. It wasn’t until Matt said that I had a plan to get out. The bottom line when people talk about all the reasons, you know the biggest reason? It stopped being fun. It just stopped being fun. It really wasn’t. That’s a big deal to me. It may sound like “Why do you have to have fun to go to work?” I don’t know. I like to be in a good mood. The ratio of bullshit to the fun part of doing the work was really starting to get out of whack.
Steven Soderbergh on why he’s no longer making movies.
I know that feel, Soderbergh. I know it.
La Nouvelle Vague or The French New Wave was a blanket term coined by critics for a group of French filmmakers of the late 1950s and 1960s, influenced by Italian Neorealism and classical Hollywood cinema. Although never a formally organized movement, the New Wave filmmakers were linked by their self-conscious rejection of classical cinematic form and their spirit of youthful iconoclasm. “New Wave” is an example of European art cinema. Many also engaged in their work with the social and political upheavals of the era, making their radical experiments with editing, visual style and narrative part of a general break with the conservative paradigm. Using portable equipment and requiring little or no set up time, the New Wave way of filmmaking presented a documentary type style. The films exhibited direct sounds on film stock that required less light. Filming techniques included fragmented, discontinuous editing, and long takes. The combination of objective realism, subjective realism, and authorial commentary created a narrative ambiguity in the sense that questions that arise in a film are not answered in the end. [x]
