Keith Loutit’s Small Worlds

Kei­th Loutit is known for his Bath­tub series of short films, that present Syd­ney and its sur­rounds in minia­ture. Loutit’s scaled down, and sped up real­i­ties chal­lenge peo­ple’s per­cep­tions of scale, help­ing them to dis­tance them­selves from places they know well.

Here is a pre­view of what’s to come.

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.
