watch these: michel gondry's semi-new video & an amazing trailer about tiny furniture

quick posts for a quick day.

seeing two films back-to-back today.  films that might actually enable me to love modern cinema again.  not cry myself to sleep after the barrage of badness i was subject to last week.  apologies to the criterion conquistador for dragging her along.

cheech marin should never be a priest.

for your enjoyment:

a trailer by science of sleep director michel gondry for a video by big-voiced crooner mia doi todd's track "open your heart."  not my favorite song, but the gondry's childlike sense of color always strikes me as particularly unique in it's sort of rag-tag simplicity.

i wonder if he's a giggling school boy in person.  i hope so.

and this, a new trailer for lena durham's second feature, tiny furniture.  aesthetically, she's a real beaut, but i worry that the content of the film might be a hodge-podge mix-up of woody allen, wes anderson, and every other new york director of the last five years.

not a clue though.  not even a small one.

criterion counsel: started the jacque tati's third film in the criterion collection the other day and have been wet at the corners of my mouth in excitement to grab another peek.  i'm thinking the whole film done by tonight or tomorrow.  lofty i know.
