It’s such a wonderful and eccentric image! I hope I’m able to see at least either 3X3D or Farewell to Language
Happy Birthday to a man I’ve never met and yet feel profound closeness with.
audreyrouget asked: I'm looking for a pillow shot of Ozu but I can't remember which film it is from. It's a colored film and the image is of the train crossing gates. Do you know which one I'm talking about?
Hmmm… no I’ve been trying to think what it might be but I’m drawing a blank!
I’m pretty sure there are some in some of the B+W films - definitely in Tokyo Twilight - but while I remember there are station and platform pillow shots in the colour films I can’t bring to mind crossing gates specifically. Perhaps someone reading this can help?
I think it could be from An Autumn Afternoon if simply because it fits best with the color scheme of that film.
Is a fairly good but by no means comprehensive resource for Ozu film stills, you may want to try that (or look around for your own enjoyment.
Steve McQueen for Vulture (2013)"Fassbender told me that McQueen “loves human beings,” even terrible ones. “The great thing about Steve, in terms of looking at characters and telling stories, is that he doesn’t judge any of it. It all is what it is. Through observation you try to gain some kind of understanding, as opposed to judgment.” He calls McQueen’s approach “almost journalistic.”
This certainly sounds like bullshit.

"With King Lear he went further still: he raises his claims for the power of the cinema—of his own films—to the level of divine power.” - Richard Brody
A better post the second time. Godard playing what we imagine him being
But really, why do you have so much love for King Lear?
My god, along with Playtime, A City of Sadness was the best film I’ve watched this year!
Criterion needs to get on their shit and release some Hou Hsiao-Hsien so I don’t have to buy $100 DVDs on Amazon so I can actually see some Hou!
