Serbian epics – Pawel Pawlikowski

Jedan od ranih, uslovno rečeno neutralnih radova budućeg poljskog Oskarovca (“Ida”) na temu srpske epske tradicije, sniman u jeku građanskog rata. U filmu se pojavljuju Radovan Karadžić, Ratko Mladić, ruski pisac Limonov i druge jednako ili manje zanimljive ličnosti. Neka ovaj antropološki dokumentarac iz BBC produkcije nadalje govori za sebe.

The German lieutenant – Stanley Kubrick

Ovo je jedan od lično mi dražih nerealizovanih Kjubrikovih ali i filmoviha ikada, tik uz otužno napušteni projekat snimanja epskog Napoleon-a (hvala finansijskom fijasku zvanom Waterloo) i zauvek Brandovim mahinacijama unazađenog ali snimljenog vesterna – One-eyed Jacks (dobro, nije toliko loš ali šta je tek mogao biti ostaje nam da maštamo).

Izabrao sam ovu scenu pošto se u njoj nedvosmisleno očitava esencija ovog duboko ljudskog filma iza kojeg stoji sasvim solidan scenario iz kojeg se čita reditelju već poznat teren (WWII, Nemačka), obrađen u njegovom ranom i u odnosu na kasnija ostvarenja ne izbliza dobrom Fear and Desire.

Šteta baš, šteta je, što veli narodna pevaljka.

Čitav scenario vama za gušt – https://indiegroundfilms.files.wordpress.com/2014/07/the-german-lieutenant.pdf

Curb your enthusiasm – kratak osvrt po sezonama

U nastavku teksta dajem kratak lični utisak o svim sezona ove genijalne komedije koja je kod nas nepravedno nepoznata i u zapećku na uštrub novog vala tupavog, prvoloptaškog humora.

Curb_your_enthusiasm

Season 1 – Vrede epizode 8 i 10, ostalo dosta slabije, tu i tamo po neki dobar skreč, scena.
Season 2 – Veoma dobro, ne kao peta i šesta ali vredi pogledati.
Season 3 – Polovičan utisak, bolja je druga polovica.
Season 4 – Lošija od svih ostalih, sveukupno tanak i bled utisak.
Season 5 – perfektna
Season 6 – perfektna
Season 7 – Veoma dobra, ali ne kao prethodna i buduca sezona.
Season 8 – Skoro perfektna
Season 9 – Najslabija do sada (u rangu sa 1.), povremeno dobar skeč, maestralno finale

Stanley Kubrick’s photos from 1945-1950

Between 1945 and 1950, Stanley Kubrick worked as a staff photographer for LOOK magazine. He was not yet Kubrick, the famous film director; he was just Stanley, the kid from the Bronx with an uncanny photographic sensibility. Only 17 years old when he joined the magazine’s ranks, he was by far its youngest photographer. Kubrick often turned his camera on his native city, drawing inspiration from the variety of personalities that populated its spaces. Photographs of nightclubs, street scenes, and sporting events were amongst his first published images, and in these assignments, Kubrick captured the pathos of ordinary life in a way that belied his young age. The Museum’s collection contains 129 of Kubrick’s assignments for the magazine, encompassing more than 15,000 individual images, the vast majority of them never published.
