Street Art // Thursday, June 12, 2014
If you remember, Banksy just won the 2014 Webby for Person of the Year, basically because for one month in NYC, he took over the Internet with his brand of social media and street art in "Better Out Than In". We even got flak for calling it an Internet project. Well, we like to thank the Webby Awards for confirming our editorial. Now, Banksy just released a trailer for "Better Out Than In—The Movie," which could just be his acceptance video for the Webby Award, or an upcoming movie. Anyway, its on the Internet.

Michel Gondry, who has directed some of our favorite films and music videos (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Science of Sleep) is releasing a unique animated documentary on the life of controversial MIT professor, philosopher, linguist, anti-war activist and political firebrand Noam Chomsky.Through complex, lively conversations with Chomsky and brilliant illustrations by Gondry himself, the film reveals the life and work of the father of modern linguistics while also exploring his theories on the emergence of language.

We haven't heard from Spike Jonze in a bit, after the beautiful Where the Wild Things Are and the excellent Arcade Fire film, Scenes from The Suburbs. Now, he is back, and from the looks of it, the feel is another sublime, subtle piece of filmmaking and writing. Her is being billed as the Spike Jonze love story and a take on modern life, love in the face of technology and anonymous communication. The fill features Joaquin Phoenix, Rooney Mara, Amy Adams, Olivia Wilde, and the voice of Scarlett Johansson. And it appears that Arcade Fire have done the film's score... check out the trailer after the jump!

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...

In 2007, a real estate agent named John Maloof paid $380 at an auction house for a box of 30,000 prints and negatives from an unknown photographer. Going through the box, he began to realize that the street photographs of 1950s and 60s Chicago and New York were both very unique and of very high quality. Some research lead to the photographer's identity: Vivian Maier, a nanny who spent nearly 40 years taking photographs but never shared her work. This documentary on the discovery of her amazing work looks promising!

Yep, that is James Franco, holding a gun to the head of Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Benson's head. And yes, this is a movie starring said actors plus Selena Gomez of Bieber fame. And yes this could be a Disney lineup circa 2004. And no, Disney would not approve. This is Harmony Korine's newest feature, Spring Breakers, and it puts the bugged out back in... bugged out. Watch the trailer...

There will be debate, and plenty of happy/angry people surrounding Disney and Sam Raimi's new prequel to the landmark 1939 masterpiece, The Wizard of Oz, the James Franco starring Oz: the Great and Powerful. Adapted from L. Frank Baum's 1900 novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the film will follow Oz' life prior to our meeting of him in the 1939 film. So we time travel together: 1939 to 2013, back to pre-1939.

Does F. Scott Fitzgerald's penultimate text, perhaps American literature's penultimate text, really need a full exploding screen experience directed by Baz Luhrmann, the man who made Moulin Rouge and the techo Romeo + Juliet? From the first trailer for the new update to The Great Gatsby, it actually may be pulled off and not have everyone running for the aisles.
