The magnificent trailer of the new film by l’enfant prodige Xavier Dolan, Laurence Anyways:
[Elle nous a raconté très rapidement, une histoire d’amour qu’elle avait eue]: “Un jour j’étais au restaurant avec mon copain et il m’a dit qu’il voulait… qu’il allait devenir une femme”. Voilà un repas qui ne se passe pas comme prévu.
– Xavier Dolan
A lovely short-film from Brazil, 2010’s I Don’t Want to Go Back Alone
Written and directed by Daniel Ribeiro; Guilherme Lobo plays Leo, Tess Amorim is Gi and Fabio Audi plays Gabriel.
Writing is not enough
Talking is not enough
Music is not enough
Silence is not enough
Friendship is not enough
Love is not enough
Lust is not enough
Fun is not enough
Exhaustion is not enough
And vicariousness is of great help

Sometimes contemplating something broken helps us reinvent ourselves.
I have always been a keen defender of artistic collaboration.
Why do something individually when there is so much strength in combining?
I only recently had the chance to see this short film by Jason Bradbury for Norwegian designer Harold Lunde Helgesen (HLH), but it is stunning:
The aesthetic fluidity of this short film is just breath-taking.
And just to dive into one’s mindset (always a great exercise), here’s the ghostly beautiful We Once Were Tide, also by Bradbury:
Collaboration disseminates talent.
One day, in the very near future, these three movies will become part of my life:
Miranda July‘s The Future
Mike Mills‘ Beginners
Xavier Dolan‘s Les Amours Imaginaires
Although I’m very aware of the disruptive powers of expectation, I am very confident in my liking.
