beautiful fim + bits
for abby's beautiful film week
jim jarmusch is an all time favorite director and Dead Man is full of such amazing imagery.... i love the scene on the right - i've never seen a dead person look so hauntingly beautiful. plus the plaid suit johnny depp wears is beyond perfect. this is a movie that i'm glad was not made in color.
i was just "talking" to someone about how i tend to remember/like movies that aren't happy. i like darker, sadder, slice of life movies.... not sure what this says about me but it seems to be true.
please think good thoughts for my little tonka. he had surgery today. i will miss his snoring in bed tonight.... i hope you get to come home tomorrow.... i'm sorry you'll have to wear an e-collar yet again. sigh
and a few links....
i haven't met viola yet, but i hope to. she just launched her website chewing the cud . very sweet
sarajo frieden updated her website. she'll have a show at little bird soon.....
and ... did you know the library of congress is on flickr ?!?!?!?!
happy mid week.
