Comments Off on Watch This: [the films of] Series by Kees van Dijkhuizen Jr
It’s come to my attention that many of you haven’t seen the [the films of] series of videos I mentioned yesterday when I posted about the Insight: Derek Cianfrance video. This is something that needs to be corrected, so here is a playlist of the entire series.
Released over the course of 2011 each video profiles a different director and manages to distill that directors voice into something pretty special. The entire playlist is around 35 minutes long so set aside some time and watch the whole thing. It’s pretty amazing.

Comments Off on Trailer: The Bling Ring
You know what? I didn’t recognize Emma Watson the first time I watched this.
This trailer doesn’t so much, but it does show enough. The Bling Ring was a real thing. A group of young people tracked celebrities whereabouts online and then robbed their houses. Over the course of nearly a year they snatched nearly 3$ million worth.
Kind of a smart plan really, and make you never want to check in on Facebook or Yelp or FourSquare ever again. But then again, the cops caught up with them.
This trailer mostly shows the crew living to excess off their ill gotten gains (side note, I don’t care what anyone says about ‘booty’ or ‘swag’, ill gotten gains is still by far the coolest way to say “stolen goods”) set to awesome party music with only real hints of the police being on their tail. Also, this films looks very much like a Sofia Coppola film. She does have a style, doesn’t she?
