My sister-in-law sent this to me. Looks like a gorgeous and important documentary.
Céline and Jesse… the saga continues!
The Wachowski siblings of The Matrix and Tom Twyker of Run Lola Run (two of the best movies ever made) came together to adapt the novel Cloud Atlas into a screenplay and then tri-direct the film. The six minute long trailer looks tremendous in scope. Even though it was rumored to cost 100 million to make, it’s basically an independent film as they had to collect funding from hundreds of different sources. (Nobody in Hollywood would back it because it was too “complex” and impossible to market.) Looks like one of the most ambitious films ever made and the subject matter is pure awesome—-karma, reincarnation, future/past/present connections, the nature of time and existence… does it get better? I think not. Pop the corn! October 26.
Never read the Great Gatsby, but this trailer is motivating me to crack the untouched copy that’s been sitting on my shelf for ten years. (Song choice is perfection: Love Is Blindness/Jack White cover.)
A very special filmmaker and group of producers are making a documentary called Occupy Love that I’ve been tracking with anticipation. The film investigates the Occupy movement as a global revolution of the heart that’s just about to find its true voice and explode. I get chills watching the updates they’ve been posting (see below).
Personally, I’ve been fascinated by how the media continues to perpetuate various ‘memes’ about the occupy movement that completely misrepresent not only what’s really happening on the street (locally and around the world), but what lies at the core of the movement. Once you move past the propaganda perpetuated by those who want to co-opt the movement (or see it fail), the fact is that occupy has the guidance of some wonderfully intelligent, compassionate and brilliant visionaries who want to Occupy survive as a community-owned revolution that can’t be pinned to a specific political movement, ideology or philosophy.
Many of them are focused on the idea that occupy is about remembering certain inalienable rights and taking back the “public square” where people can question, discuss and create solutions to problems that really aren’t much of a problem when you step outside of the boundaries that have been created for us.
The occupy blog is a great way to stay in touch with what’s going on inside of Occupy.
And their periodic dispatches and interview snippets are really inspiring!
Um, where can I get a Fassbender robot?
Speaking of, Peter took some cool pics of robots the other day. We have a long way to go. I sort of hope we never get there.
