After our Mojo Yogurt date last night, the GF and I watched NY Export: Opus Jazz.
Let me tell you, this film is visually stunning and emotionally evocative. For a film with nearly zero dialogue, it communicates wonderfully and uses the city as setting without making it a cliche character. I particularly loved the scene that was filmed at the great new High Line Park (former elevated rail allowed to fallow until it turned into a park naturally)
I agree with the introduction, while they are dancing Jazz, the film is hardly about jazz and almost all about the way life is lived and loved.
The story telling is fantastic and the cinematography looked better than Fern Gully 3D.
Oh yeah, and it’s sexy as all hell, too.
I definitely recommend that you try it out.
Banksy + Movie
Two words I’ve loved separately, but never thought of putting together.
Then I saw the trailer below and got hyped beyond imagination.
I’m really not sure how you do a Banksy movie without revealing who he is, but I’m very excited to see the massive OBEY head about half-way through. Shepard Fairey + Bansky. That’s like DiMaggio & Teddy Ballgame on the same field.
Can’t wait to hear what people say when it debut’s next week at Sundance.
