The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus

Pretty intrigu­ing movie. I saw it on the flight back from Incheon (Seoul, Korea) last week. I didn’t know it was Heath Ledger’s last/unfinished project till recently. Johnny Depp, Colin Far­rell and Jude Law helped wrap-up his part after his pass­ing. Still, the story flowed well even with “the help”.

Any­ways, it’s visu­ally stun­ning and not hard to fol­low at all. But if you only like 100%-action, I don’t know if you’ll like this one haha… oth­er­wise, give it a go.

Here’s the trailer.

PS. On a side note, check out the dif­fer­ent ver­sion of the movie’s poster here. I dig­gin’ the one above.

London to Paris

I haven’t trav­eled from Lon­don to Paris straight, but did over­sleep and miss a tour coach along with my room­mate this past March (too much exploring/partying I guess, and lack of sleep). We hopped on the Eurostar bul­let train to try and catch the rest of the Con­tiki group at the Lon­don Pub, but were 10-minutes late and had to catch the next one =\

Any­ways, ‘Lon­don to Paris’.

C’était un Rendezvous

I almost for­got about this short film. Pretty cool one-take flick.1 Crazy dri­ving skills for sure. I guess its true to the con­cept that “90% of life is just show­ing up.“2

  1. It seems that this type of film tech­nique is an exam­ple of cinéma-vérité. Cinéma vérité is a style of doc­u­men­tary film­mak­ing, com­bin­ing nat­u­ral­is­tic tech­niques with styl­ized cin­e­matic devices of edit­ing and cam­er­a­work, staged set-ups, and the use of the cam­era to pro­voke sub­jects.
