Wes Anderson // Centered

Design // Wednesday, March 19, 2014
Two-thirds of our office has seen "The Grand Budapest Hotel," and we all agree it was one of Wes Anderson's strongest stories to date, right up there with "The Royal Tenenbaums" in terms of originality and overall filmmaking. (We like every film, "Darjeeling Limited" has a special place in our hearts as well). Somebody very clever, kogonada, who also created the awesome Kubrick "One-shot perspective" cut, has taken all the Wes Anderson films and shown the filmmakers knack for being "Centered."

Trailer: "Teenage" Documentary by Matt Wolf

Juxtapoz // Thursday, February 27, 2014
This is a film we have been looking forward to all year, and with the extra addition of Bradford Cox's musical score (the man behind Deerhunter and Atlas Sound), we are even more intrigued. "Teenage" is a new documentary by Matt Wolf that researches and examines the birth and prominence of youth and teenager culture in post-20th Century wartime eras. The film will be out on March 14 in select theaters, but we have the trailer today...

John Waters is a little bit of everything in the creative world; filmmaker, writer, actor, visual artist, and even has a robust art collection. Based in San Francisco, Baltimore, and NYC, we sat down with Waters in the summer of 2010, just when his book Role Models was being released, and his last show at Rena Bransten Gallery in SF was opened.

One of the great independent filmmakers America has ever produced, with notable films such as Good Will Hunting, Milk, My Own Private Idaho, Elephant, and so many more, we were able to sit down with Gus Van Sant at his home in Portland, Oregon in March 2011, to discuss photography, filmmaking, and the intricacies of art.

Werner Herzog "Hearsay of the Soul" @ The Getty Center, Los Angeles

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 12, 2013
Hearsay of the Soul is film director Werner Herzog's first video art installation. Projected on three adjacent walls and eighteen minutes in length, the five-channel video combines selected landscape etchings by Hercules Segers (Dutch, about 1589–about 1638) with the contemporary avant-garde music of composer/cellist Ernst Reijseger (Dutch, born 1954). The juxtaposition of Segers's lush prints of enigmatic vistas with Reijseger's expressive and experimental music results in a richly layered work that is both intimate and epic.

Appreciating: Saul Bass and the Movies

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 08, 2013
On May 8, 1920, one of the most iconic and influential graphic designers, Saul Bass, was born. Creating posters and opening film sequences for classics like Pyscho, North By Northwest, Vertigo, Anatomy of a Murder, West Side Story, Cape Fear, Goodfellas, Casino, and countless more, we give a nod to the legend who passed away in 1996. Here is a collection of his great posters, and a few of our favorite opening title sequences... enjoy. Even Google got into the mix with a fantastic ode to Mr Bass on their search page... 

Trailer: Michel Gondry's "Mood Indigo"

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 01, 2013
We had heard this film was in production, but forgot about it until yesterday when we saw a new trailer for Michel Gondry's "Mood Indigo." Looks like the French filmmaker is back to creating the more whimisical, creative, and surreal fantasy worlds of some of his best films (Eternal Sunshine, Science of Sleep). Remember when we did a photoshoot with our Petit Gondry a few years back to coincide with our interview with Grand Gondry? That was fun. Now watch the trailer...
