The prettiest movie I’ve seen in a long time.

28 Jun

I know I’m a little late on this one, but The Diving Bell and Butterfly (Day 264) was really spectacular.  I love the idea of shooting from the view point of someone who is completely paralyzed and only has his limited site from wherever he’s orchestrated by the people surrounding him.  The challenge of focusing his eye becomes the audience’s entertainment.  As Julian Schnabel says, it’s a movie about seeing.

From a photographer and stylist standpoint, it makes you think about creating a world from one perspective.  Here’s the trailer.

    That really was an interesting movie- and I even overheard this 13ish boy, going home on the T from school one day, trying to describe it to his friends- and I was like- wow we have some damn intellectual kids living in JP.

      That’s funny. I definitely wouldn’t have watched that movie when I was 13. It didn’t have Tom Hanks in it.
