VELVET GOLDMINE: Wednesday, July 17th at 9:15pm Set in the glittery Britain of the early 1970’s, director Todd Haynes‘ sumptuous 1998 glam rock fantasia VELVET GOLDMINE epitomizes the sex, drugs, rock ‘n roll of the era, “an orgiastic celebration of high-camp fakery and gender-fluid sexuality, full of decadent dandies, dazzling fabrics and daring fabrications.” (BFI.org). The film follows Bowie-esque glam rock superstar Brian Slade (Jonathan Rhys Myers), whose alter-ego, Maxwell Demon, predicts his own death on stage. Shortly after he announces his prediction, he fakes his own death and is exposed as a fraud. A decade later, in 1984, a reporter and former fan named Arthur (Christian Bale), tracks down the former rocker to do an article on his life and downfall. Arthur interviews the man who discovered Slade, and one of his peers (Ewan McGregor), to understand Slade’s motivations. With Toni Colette and Eddie Izzard.
Velvet Goldmine (1998) - Todd Haynes . Arthur Stuart es un reportero que investiga la muerte de Brian Slade, quien fue misteriosamente asesinado en el escenario. Arthur entrevista a los conocidos del difunto artista y la película navega entre pasado y presente para entender lo que sucedió. . . El film inspirado en el álter ego de David Bowie, Ziggy Stardust toma la estructura de Citizen Kane y la llena de glam rock. Si bien Todd Haynes quería hacer una biopic sobre Bowie, el músico ingles no dio su autorización para esto y la película terminó con personajes ficticios fuertemente inspirados en Bowie, Iggy Pop y Lou Reed. Producida por Michael Stipe (líder de R.E.M), la película recorre la escena del glam rock llenando la pantalla de brillos, colores y mucha muúsica. Placebo, T. Rex y Pulp son sólo alguna de las bandas que suenan en el film. Además cuenta con maravillosas actuaciones de Ewan McGregor, Christian Bale y Toni Collette. ¿La vieron? . . #VelvetGoldmine #ToddHaynes #EwanMcGregor #ChristianBale #ToniColette #Placebo #Bowie #LouReed #IggyPop #ZiggyStardust #Pupl #Trex #GlamRock #CiudadanoKane #CitizenKane #Biopic
I am excited to see the new Ewan McGregor film Doctor Sleep that follows storyline of Danny Torrence the young boy from Stanley Kubricks masterpiece The Shining (REDRUM!). The new film stars Ewan as an adult Dan Torrence. - I had the pleasure of photographing him here in a film noir type of setting for his show Fargo on FX which was also a brilliant performance. I love the use of negative space above his head to create a more compelling image. #redrum #ewanmcgregor #fargo #trainspotting #bigfish #moulinrouge #theshining #obiwankenobi #starwars #blackandwhite #velvetgoldmine #doctorsleep #portrait #themaninblack #20thcenturyfox

To build a conceptual framework around a notion of Us-versus-Them is, in effect, to pretend that the principal consideration is epistemological and natural - our civilization is known and accepted, theirs is different and strange - whereas, in fact, the framework separating us from them is belligerent, constructed, and situational. . . . . . . #edwardsaid #said #christianbale #velvetgoldmine #toddhaynes #bryanslade #other #theother #civilization #us #them #me #you #thatsmedad #thatsme #qotd #wednesday #humpday #framework
