Art Cinema

I must have skipped the Art House Cinema period during 2004 because I most certainly do not remember the release of this tiny Kubrick-like film by Thomas Vinterberg called "It's All About Love". The film was unfortunately panned by everyone for because it didn't justify a certain level of confidence in its storytelling that is usually expected of Vinterberg. But for what it's worth, the 2-hour long movie was worth watching for its beautiful cinematography, imaginative plot and circumstances, eerie soundtrack, fantastic art direction and a pair of gifted actors.

Plus, the movie posters kick ass!

Okay. So this was mine and my sister's attempt to be super artsy fartsy and photograph subjects in the style of Maya Deren's work. It doesn't really do her any justice, since Maya is a fortress all on her own, but it still looks pretty wicked, right?

Maya Deren

Ever since I wandered into the basement of the MoMA to see the Maya Deren film exhibit back in late August, I have been obsessed. I'm so impressed by her talent in cinematography as well as film editing. Her sense of proportion is so unique, and still looks incredibly modern now. They say a woman makes a better Film Editor in Hollywood anyways.
