With a Big Gun_________________________
November 27th, 2003 - thursday___
I take off for my Thanksgiving break, I felt I should put a drawing
in the update box in place of the horrible photo I took of the
prints. Man, that photo was such an eyesore. Despite the hideous
picture, however, I sold a few prints! Thanks for the support
everybody! Anybody who orders any prints this week that don't
have to be pre-ordered and printed (Rocket Pack Fantasy and Ballads)
will receive them sometime next week. I'll be sending them out
on Monday, as soon as I return from the holiday break.
Triplets of Belleville. Highly recommended. The
best way I can think of describing this film is that, like the
films of Jacques Tati and classic comedies of the silent era,
The Triplets of Belleville is a celebration of small moments.
Plot and story take a back seat to the wonderfully absurd pantomimes
of the characters and the amazing production design. The visuals
for this film are insanely gorgeous. Their use of scale and composition
completely blew my mind. For those of you that have little patience
with subtitles, not to worry, since there is no real dialogue
in the entire film. Everybody in the audience seemed to have a
really good time, and for some reason I caught myself laughing
a LOT harder than the people around me, which happens very rarely.
I'm already looking forward to watching this film again, and again.
