Can’t wait to see the new Terrence Malick film!
Happy Wednesday! ;-)
Not typical Halloween stuff, but these movies both give me the creepy feeling of being stuck in a loop, like in a nightmare.
The latest issue of Lula magazine features a nice article about a film that is about to be re-released. It’s ‘Alice’ by Jan Svankmajer.
The funny thing is, some years ago I searched very hard an long on the internet to find it on dvd, and this only after a much longer search in my brain. The images have always remained so vivid and detailed and I suppose this has to do with the fact that I watched it with my younger sister when we were about the same age as the little girl who plays Alice has in the movie. It was so scary for us but even more intriguing to watch.
When I finally found out what it was we watched I dug up the dvd from some obscure online shop, waited about 7 months and was then pretty much surprised when I got it in the mail.
The film tells the story of Alice in wonderland, but in a way you’ve never seen before. I love it that it’s re-released but I also don’t want to see it too much, as your memories change every time you ‘touch’ them. And I don’t want to forget how I felt about the image above for example, before I knew what it was. I don’t think there’s a more pure way of experiencing film. Or anything for that matter.
Wonderful trailer for ‘A bout de souffle’, so beautifully done.
My favorite short from ‘New York, I love you’. Although ‘Paris je t’aime’ was better, I also enjoyed these short films.
