You probably know the story; Herb and Dorothy Vogel (the postal worker and librarian), who were the subject of the inspiring documentary beacuse of their extraordinary passion that redefined what it meant to be art collectors.

Being a collector of Criterion Collection DVDs, we happen to have a few of Wes Anderson's films at home that feature the artwork of his brother, Eric Chase Anderson. Seeing that Mr. Wes Anderson is a detail-obsessed filmmaker, having these simple but brand identifying illustrations as companion pieces to the films is another reason why his films are cult hits.

In my own personal opinion, Case 2 was the most charismatic and positive character in the influential movie Style Wars. His quotes are timeless and his swift way with words made him a stand out.

What an interesting concept. Using photos to represent a film frame, placed together to represent movement, Simoes has created what he calls quasi-cinema.
