Changement

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

Time for cuteness

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.

Anxiety

Sometimes,

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

Persona

Sometimes contemplating something broken helps us reinvent ourselves.

Muse

Tilda Swinton is an icon, both as an actor and performer and as a transcendental androgynous beauty.

I have come across this video and couldn’t help but become mesmerized by its simple yet stunning aesthetics. Not to mention the words, so listen carefully.

Mining

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.

Thrice

One day, in the very near future, these three movies will become part of my life:

Miranda July‘s The Future

Mike MillsBeginners

Xavier Dolan‘s Les Amours Imaginaires

Although I’m very aware of the disruptive powers of expectation, I am very confident in my liking.
