A Dissection of Rushmore

A Dissection of Rushmore by Matt Zoller Seitz

Earlier this week I mentioned the release of The Wes Anderson Collection book by Matt Zoller Seitz. Well, it appears he’s releasing a series of videos analyzing Wes Anderson’s films as well! In this one Seitz provides some really great insights into Anderson’s second feature film, Rushmore.

It seemed fitting to choose this frame from the movie to sort of match the frame I picked for “The Grand Budapest Hotel” trailer, a couple posts below. I’m a huge nerd. Watch the video below!

Colourful Yet Catastrophic Photographs by Japanese Artist Yoshimitsu Umekawa

umekawa6

Equal parts mesmerizing and unsettling, Yoshimitsu Umekawa’s photographs are positively (and negatively) nuclear, drawing on the issues and anxieties that surround modern day Japan. See more images below.
