subvert returns winter 2013
Here today at the New York Film Festival are director Jim Jarmusch and the otherworldy Tilda Swinton discussing his new film Only Lovers Left Alive. A pretty cool take on vampire films. Jarmusch fans are gonna really like it. Music is super with a soundtrack by his sometimes collaborator Joszef Van Wissem. Also songs by Wanda Jackson, Charlie Feathers and a nice dance scene done to an old Denise Lasalle soul nugget-pp(@psquaremedia) #jimjarmusch #tildaswinton #onlyloversleftalive #NYFF http://instagram.com/p/fTTazGGGkp/
Lily Loofbourouw wonders “Why We Watch Netflix in the Middle of the Night”, and takes a look at how Netflix has changed the way we interact with our favorite shows:
Netflix isn’t just The Way We Watch Now, the way Annie said, it’s The Way We Go Back To Sleep Now too. These days we can choose the perfect mood to chase away the nightmare, or the anxiety, or — less successfully — the sad. TV has gotten a lot more intimate, more entwined with our subconscious, closer. In this sense, shows have come to function as music, more symphonic poem than story, more repeating theme than plot.
It’s important to note that there’s a difference between punk as a musical genre, culture, and aesthetic and punk as a philosophy. The former is certainly played out — it’s nigh on impossible for any sort of subculture to remain cutting-edge and relevant for 30 years… The good news is that the substance of that philosophy hasn’t disappeared — it’s just moved on.
Hey everyone, I have some cool news.The movie I wrote and directed, DON JON, is now gonna be coming out a little bit earlier. The new release date is September 27th. Personally, I can’t wait for people to see it, and this makes my wait time that much shorter! And for all you fine folks who’ve been telling me they didn’t wanna wait tell October, well you’re welcome ;o)thanks!J
