Great face I agree. His drawings remind me of Radiohead's Paranoid Android music video done by Swedish animator. I wouldn't be surprised if he was influenced by Pushwagner.

:P Favorite Directors as of now (and perhaps have been all along) with 5 favorite films

Jean-Luc Godard

Je Vous Salue, Marie
Nouvelle Vague
Hélas pour Moi
Film Socialisme
Notre Musique
Vivre Sa Vie
Week End
Alphaville
Germany Year 90 Nine Zero
First Name Carmen



There are still so much to explore in his filmography (especially his 80s-2000s work). Not all his ideas and references work, but by golly, I'll find that perfect Godard Film some day.


Werner Herzog

Enigma of Caspar Hauser
Nosferatu, Phantom der Nacht
Aguirre, Wrath of God

Fitzcarraldo

*Any of his films can be on top 5. They are completely interchangeable.


Claire Denis

White Material
L'intrus
Beau Travail
I Can't Sleep
No Fear, No Die

*Any of her films can be on top 5. They are completely interchangeable.


Apichapong Weerasethakul

Uncle Boommee Who Can Recall His Past Lives
Blissfully Yours
Tropical Malady

*Any of his films can be on top 5. They are completely interchangeable.


Abbas Kiarostami

*Any of his films can be on top 5. They are completely interchangeable.

But I am at a stage where I feel more and more attracted to non-narrative films. Pure visual aural experience. I found this artist Jean Detheux. This is what I ultimately want to do:

Zulawski's butchered sci-fi magnum opus. I tried to watch this again. Still a 2 1/2 hour incomprehensible mess.
