What are you up to Karl?

When I first read that Karl Lagerfeld had an involvement with the upcoming ‘Totally Spies’ movie – and then saw this image – I had a horrible moment where I thought he was responsible for the shiny coloured catsuits you see above. But fear not! Although he deems to stand next to such monstosities, he quite obviously had nothing to do with the creation of them.
It turns out he is using one of his myriad of other talents and lending his voice to the bad guy, Fabu in the animated film, which is released in July 2009. Yes the film is animated, which means those lovely outfits above will not be seen on the big screen. Such a shame.

Movie of the Week: Sunset Boulevard

As a member of LOVEFiLM, my movie intake in recent times has been quite high. And although I have seen films that I thought brilliant, such as The Piano and La Vie en Rose, it takes a lot for me to be completely blown away by a movie – but that happened last night while watching Sunset Boulevard:

Even though it has long been touted as a classic, there are many ‘classic’ films that I do not care for, yes I mean you ‘The Godfather Trilogy’ and ‘Apocalypse Now’….

Made in 1950 and written and directed by the superb Billy Wilder it stars lesser known Hollywood talent, Gloria Swanson and William Holden and it tells the story of a 1920’s screen star (Swanson) who is trying to make a return (not comeback…) to acting in the harsh landscape of 1950’s Hollywood.

The casting is brilliant as Gloria Swanson actually was a huge 1920’s silent movie star who fell to obscurity following the introduction of the ‘talkie’ movies. So her role has a biographical tinge. The plot is damning of the Hollywood industry and was the first of it’s time to show the darker side of the industry. There are cameo’s by famed director Cecil B. DeMille and silent movie star Buster Keaton, there are fantastic costumes by the legendary Edith Head…it just has everything.

It claims it’s place officially in Top 5 territory.

Snakes on a Plane – For Real!

It’s brilliant when real life mimics the plot line of crazy films. Sadly this just does not happen often enough. Happily, when it does, it’s the plot of Snakes on a Plane that comes to life!
Apparently an internal Australian flight was transporting Pythons to Melbourne and four of them escaped – Snakes on a Plane! They were only baby Pythons but let’s not let reality taint the joy of this story. I imagine the scenes did resemble this:

Tilda goes GaGa

Here’s a still of the fabulous Tilda Swinton, from the new film ‘The Limits of Control.’ I was drawn to the brilliant Lady GaGa inspired look she is sporting. The movie is written and directed by Jim Jarmusch and also stars Bill Murray and Gael Garcia Bernal. It has the tagline, ‘For every way in, there is another way out,’ it’s of the crime thriller genre and looks pretty good. So I’m guessing the wig and hat are in aid of disguise rather than channelling a certain pop star. Still, she looks fantastic.
