Jim Jarmusch – Only Lovers Left Alive

A vampire film of substance and swagger infused with elements of past Jarmusch genius. I like his take on being a vampire in the 21st century.

Cutie and The Boxer

I just watched this special documentary about the Japanese artist couple Ishio and Noriko Shinohara’s 40 year long marriage, their New York living, and the sacrifices made to make art. I fell in love with them almost instantly.

Notoriously Hitchcock

I’ve been on a Hitchcock kick thanks to a dear friend. She suggested I watch Notorious which happens to star two of my favorite old Hollywood heartthrobs Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman. They both go undercover in order to solve the case. I wish I could go undercover as Ingrid Bergman. Thanks, NMM!

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

I finally watched Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid the other evening. Robert Redford and Paul Newman are quite the handsome wild west bank robbing duo. The western landscapes weren’t so bad either. Next up, The Sting!

Agnès Varda – Daguerréotypes

Agnès Varda is a favorite of mine. Her vantage point is always inspiring and contagious.  Daguerréotypes (1978) documents the lives of the small shopkeepers on the street where she (still) lives: rue Daguerre in Paris, FR. Many of the shots linger like still lifes of a past that has vanished. These shop keepers devoted their lives solely to their shop and their neighborhood patrons. I heart her so.
