The Model as Muse

Not only does this photo make the word peace tangible, but it makes me very excited for this exhibit.

What will you learn?

Get informed, but what will you learn that you don't know already? 
The Informers, directed by Gregor Jordan, playing at the Angelika NOW. 

The Requiem for a Dream for our jaded-typepad generation. 
Based on Bret Easton Ellis' short stories (published in 1994), The Informers features an all star cast- Mickey Rourke, Winona Ryder, Billie Bob Thorton, Kim Basinger- reminding us how fun can turn into disaster.   
Music, sex, drugs, and a whole lotta [missing] love. 
The Informers know everything and nothing. 

"I need someone to tell me what is good."

Solo with Solo

Another film at the Angelika.
Taxi driver: curious, bleary-eyed, accepting, misty in the Smokies.

This shot of Souleymane Sy Savane is exactly what I want to do 
when I re-visit Tennesee in June.

I'm hoping seeing this film was a self-invented sign of the end of 'Solo'.
Viewing at the Angelika tonight:
