Good filmmaking means making quiet, yet powerful statements like this.
This came across my dash and I started yelling and pointing because this is the shot I was rambling about on Anglo-Filles (about seven minutes in) and how I keyed into it as a young teenager as “this is the world I’m going to grow up in,” the This Is What This Movie Is Really About shot.
I don’t know if some of you have been to these live reads at LACMA, where a classic film is read live on stage by actors who just sit and read the script. We did one recently of American Pie, but we reversed the gender roles. All the women played men; all the men played women. And it was so fascinating to be a part of this because, as the women took on these central roles — they had all the good lines, they had all the good laughs, all the great moments — the men who joined us to sit on stage started squirming rather uncomfortably and got really bored because they weren’t used to being the supporting cast.
It was fascinating to feel their discomfort [and] to discuss it with them afterward, when they said, “It’s boring to play the girl role!” And I said, “Yeah. Yeah. You think? Welcome to our world!"
i hate when a character is obviously bisexual but they wont call it that
its like if I walked up to someone, complimented their shoes, and they were like “OH YOU MEAN MY FOOT HOLDERS”

On 12/12/72 Marie-Hélène de Rothschild, member of the most powerful elite family in the world, held a Surrealist Ball at Château de Ferrières, one of the family’s gigantic mansions.
The invitation was written in reverse. It required a mirror to be read. Inversion is a big deal in a pseudo-satanic mind state.
Guy de Rothschild & Marie-Hélène de Rothschild, the hosts of the ball, wore a horned “giant’s head” with tears made from real diamonds.
