Ah, sweet rapture! Fall promises so many visual delights! Firstly and foremost, I reiterate the coming of Tim Burton’s ‘Corpse Bride’, David Lynch’s ‘INLAND EMPIRE’ and Terry Gilliam’s ‘Tideland’(do click on the links, as they lead to two most exellent sites and one rather odd interview). All well and good, but we’ve been anticipating these for months. Imagine my delight to find two and a half other directors dear to my heart coming out with a few new projects each!
Guy Maddin, director of the most exellent ‘Saddest Music in the World’ and ‘Dracula: Pages from a Virgin’s Diary’, is coming out with ‘The Brand Upon the Brain’ in November and directs Isabella Rosellini’s ‘My Dad is 100 Years Old’ right now! An audio interview can be heard here, and stills seen here at Twitch Films. Go lookit.
The Brothers Quay, twin brothers, students of Jan Svankmajer and directors of such marvels as ‘Street of Crocodiles’, are coming out with a new feature entitled ‘The Piano Tuner of Earthquakes’, produced by no man less than Terry Gilliam himself! Whippety!
