Now that fashion has become a global spectator sport, now that style and celebrity and hard-edged glamour are so ubiquitous, we are in real danger of losing the crafty nuance. As a result, the poetry and the passion exemplified by the individuals in this book have become more important than ever. Their viewpoint represents a beautiful and powerful antidote to the global branding cacophony that threatens to eradicate all subtlety and beauty from the fashion landscape. These creators are our international treasures. Simply put, without the thoughts and madness of these crafting mystics, design obsessives, and superfreaks, we are all doomed. Okay, so that’s a tad hyperbolic. But after immersing yourself in this rich tome, I know you will feel the same way.

Last night I finally went to see the new Woody Allen film, Midnight in Paris. While I can’t say that I LOVE Woody Allen’s films I do have an appreciation for his character development and storylines. blah blah blah.
The movie was lovelylovely. I normally hate Owen Wilson, the way he talks, his face, and his attitude. Every single movie he does he is the same and quite frankly obnoxious. BUT in this film, it didn’t seem to bother me. OK, the closeups of his face still made me want to punch him but other than that I was ok with the fact that I was watching him act. The fact that he was wandering around Paris for the entire movie didn’t hurt either.
Basically, the movie was funny, charming, and beautiful just as all movies should be. I would definitely say that Midnight in Paris was the best movie I have seen in a while and even if you hate Owen Wilson as much as I do, you should still go see it.
I had been dying to see this movie until last night when I finally made my way out to the Sunset Laemmle to see it.
Like a lot of British films I’ve seen, Submarine has a relatively slow pace which kept me from absolutely loving the film. I guess I’m just used to a story line that moves with an action movie pace, like the sad films we churn out in the US.
The film did have just the right amount of quirkiness though, which made it really endearing and also pretty hilarious at some points. The acting was pretty awesome as well. Both the young stars of the film had a great array of facial expressions. This only added to the fact that I couldn’t stop comparing Craig Roberts, Oliver Tate, to James McAvoy!
If I learned anything else from the film it was that most British teens are pretty damn ugly… Insightful, I know.
I can’t say that I would recommend spending $11 on this film but I definitely enjoyed it and would say that it was worth watching on DVD or something.
What you talking bout Willis?
