I've got on an old Gloverall duffel coat today. It's like wearing a thick naval wool snuggie
The Malick movies I tend not to like as much are the ones that veer into melodrama because they're so deadly sincere. I include Thin Red Line and Tree of Life in that category. But the ones that focus on their ideas and maintain a little more distance from the character's emotions are some of my favorite movies. Those include Badlands and The New World, which is one of my favorites ever. I'm surprised nobody has mentioned The New World actually. I think it's Malick's best movie. Of all of them, it's got the fewest flaws and it's the best union of subject matter and theme. A Malick movie about "civilizing" nature and native America—what could be more perfect?
Nice call on Fernando Pessoa. I'm Portuguese on my mom's side (by way of Brazil), so I have a soft spot for Portuguese writers. I think I've mentioned this before, but another book definitely worth checking out is Epitaph of a Small Winner by Machado de Assis (best novelist Brazil ever produced). It's influenced by Tristram Shandy and it's really really good, and funny too. Just find an excerpt on Amazon or something and you'll see what I mean.
at one point I thought I had mistakenly acquired Jurassic Park IV
I thought that scene with the dinosaurs was pretty funny. I took from it that even the dinosaurs had compassion? I can see Malick saying "In order to tell this story of this family, we have to go back to the beginning. No, the beginning!" Still, the story of the family amidst the story of the universe inferred to me how insignificant we are, and that death is part of life. I know, it's an old theme, but I think Malick conveyed it well.
I did also like The New World very much. I was impressed by Colin Farrell, which doesn't happen often.
One of the things I like about Malick is the voice overs. It gets me inside the characters' heads, which is different than them having to speak every idea to make their thoughts known.
not voice over so much as incoherent ramblings, unidirectional conversation, or just some sad soliloquy -- anyway i have to finish the last 20-30 min so i'm putting the whole forum on ignore until further notice this evening ~shah out~
first against the wall
I was just thinking that if he makes all that money and feels compelled to wear a suit, that he could wear a better suit.
same guy behind naked and famous--capturing the workwear/heritage crowd now i guess.
this is great
I like my N + F but once I beat them into submission I'm never wearing denim again.
Next time I get my hair cut, I'm going to ask for the "romantic and Victorian feeling."
thatoneguy, anymore photos/links?
geller usually does that for his shows. i remember seeing a short clip of him choosing what models would wear what (or something like that)
those head shots+descriptions are definitely interesting to look through.
