Shot this clip while sitting on the bank’s of one of MA’s largest public water reserves.

Reminded me of Joan Didion’s essay,

Holy Water,”

from her collection

The White Album.

Norwegian Wood

Tran Anh Hung’s film adaptation of Haruki Murakami’s novel Norwegian Wood. Says Anh Hung: “When I read Norwegian Wood I felt this intimacy, as though the book discovered me somehow, recognized who I am. I think many people have felt that way, and that’s the key to its success.” Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood provides the score.

Nathalie Chanin

I like Wyatt Troll’s new video of Nathalie Chanin’s collection.

It reminds me of a Flannery O’Connor short story.

Everything That Rises Must Converge.

NOWNESS introduces the video in the below synopsis:

“To celebrate ten years of designer Natalie Chanin’s groundbreaking couture project Alabama Chanin—a micro-enterprise that uses organic and recycled materials (and local talent) to produce limited-edition, hand-stitched creations—cinematographer Wyatt Troll traveled to the foothills of the Appalachians to capture her universe on film, exclusively premiered here by NOWNESS. “One can feel lusciousness in the air and water there—a bit heavy, but altogether wonderful,” says Troll of Florence, Alabama, where the company is headquartered. Troll’s movie, set to Devendra Banhart’s cover of “The Overachievers” by the Liars, captures the languorous glamour found in Chanin’s clothes—appliqué cotton camisole dresses that sweetly invoke American Gothic, intricately embroidered A-line jackets with deconstructed “fur” finish—by locating the collection in the everyday poetry of the rural American South. “Natalie’s world is all her own. She cares as much about her sewing family as she does the countryside and her own kin,” says Troll, whose cinematography credits include Spike Jonze’s short film We Were Once a Fairytale and Tom Kuntz’s recent video for MGMT’s “Congratulations.””

Brother’s Keeper

The trailer for this is terrible.

I wish I could find a better one without a voiceover.

The film itself is stunning.

Best documentary I’ve seen since Grey Gardens.

Onion? Yeah, In The Cokes.

“The All American Smile:”

“In a way he was just like the country he lived in,

everything came too easily to him.”

She was just your style, Hubbell.

Things just came too easy.

“The Way We Were.”

(1973)
