Marco Brambilla “RPM” 2011 (excerpt)

Marco Brambilla is my favorite video artist who has also directed a huge-budget Hollywood action film.

I am filing this under “grown up lava lamp” art. I could stare at this for hours and it would never get old.

Just got a bunch of nice screenshots to use on the desktop.

Bulletpoint Movie Review:

Moneyball (Dir. Bennett Miller)

  • Brad Pitt does some fine work, which is always to be expected.
  • It is somewhat “The Social Network” of Baseball films
  • It is not a David Fincher baseball film.
  • Before this, I saw an advanced screening of an upcoming Jonah Hill film in his new skinny body. So this whole film, it looked like Hill was wearing a fat suit.
  • Jonah Hill can work with just about anyone. Dude is that good.
  • I wonder about what Soderbergh’s version of this would have ended up like. I feel like Miller’s version is a bit more accessible to the general audience than Soderbergh’s would have.
  • Sports films are (smartly) moving away from the “will they/won’t they win the final game” climax.
  • There was only one reason for Robin Wright Penn to be in the film, and that was so we could see her husband. (If you’ve seen it, you know who I’m talking about.) Other than that, no point.
  • I enjoyed this. Definitely a movie you could watch a few times. 4/5 stars kids!
What’s with the excessive Photoshop bullshit on his face?

No, really. Just do it. You have some kind of weird reasons that are okay.

One of the best directors.

Watch 25 Great Moments in Movie Improvisation

Great actors are just great.

One of my favorite non-verbal improvisations (I’m assuming it was improvised), is in ROLE MODELS  the dinner table scene where Ken Marino leans Paul Rudd’s recently vacated chair against the table after Ken kicks Paul out (at 2:56).

“I have often spoken of what I call the inadequate imagery of today’s civilization. I have the impression that the images that surround us today are worn out; they are abused and useless and exhausted. They are limping and dragging themselves behind the rest of our cultural evolution. When I look at the postcards in tourist shops and the images and advertisements that surround us in magazines or I turn on the television, or if I walk into a travel agency and see those huge posters with that same tedious image of the Grand Canyon on them, I truly feel there is something dangerous emerging here.

…As a race we have become aware of certain dangers that surround us. We comprehend, for example, that nuclear power is a real danger for mankind, that over-crowding of the planet is the greatest of all. We have understood that the destruction of the environment is another enormous danger. But I truly believe that the lack of adequate imagery is a danger of the same magnitude. It is as serious a defect as being without memory. What have we done to our images? What have we done to our embarrassed landscapes? I have said this before and will repeat it again as long as I am able to talk: if we do not develop adequate images we will die out like dinosaurs. Look at the depiction of Jesus in our iconography, unchanged since the vanilla ice-cream kitsch of the Nazarene school of painting in the late nineteenth century. These images alone are sufficient proof that Christianity is moribund.

We need images in accordance with our civilization and our innermost conditioning, and this is the reason why I like any film that searches for new images no matter in what direction it moves or what story it tells. One must dig like an archaeologist and search our violated landscape to find anything new. It can sometimes be a struggle to find unprocessed and fresh images.”

God damn.
