“What you lookin' at? You all a bunch of fuckin' assholes. You know why? You don't have the guts to be what you wanna be? You need people like me. You need people like me so you can point your fuckin' fingers and say, "That's the bad guy." So... what that make you? Good? You're not good. You just know how to hide, how to lie. Me, I don't have that problem. Me, I always tell the truth. Even when I lie.“ #ToniMontana#Scarface#AlPacino
Dreamt of Al Pacino last night. A long multi-chapter dream that was as real as real is. In fact, I woke at my usual-ish 6:30 and instead of bathroom then kitchen to French drip, I only did bathroom then crawled back into bed and drifted back into the dream ...lost in it til 9 am. Bizarre. And beautiful. It was so real. Like all day I've been subconsciously expecting him to show up. #Dreaming#Dreamer#Dreams#AlPacino
After months of on and off work on this project it's finally ready to ship today! This family has started to feel like my own. After putting my work on Reddit awhile ago I got an email from a lovely man with this request. He lives in the US but his family is all overseas and they haven't all been together in over 7 years. So, it was my job to piece together the individual photos into a cohesive group picture and bring the family together through art. This was the first of such a project I've taken on, a lot of unexpected details, but overall a beautiful learning process. Satisfied. Oh, and the one request was for him to be seated in an armchair like Al Pacino.
Now that Warner Brothers is remastering Scarecrow for Blu-Ray, you can cry high definition tears! 😭 No release date has been posted yet, but it'll soon be part of the Warner Archive Collection. Even though I don't buy DVDs anymore, I'm excited for this if it means more people are going to discover it! And it's such a beautiful movie, it'll look amazing in high def. Special features include the short behind the scenes video (!!!!) and the trailer, all found on the regular 2005 release but now in HD. I'm already dreaming of all the edits it can be used for, haha.
47th movie watched this year; #dogdayafternoon by the great #sidneylumet . "What is dis, a squirrel?" is one of the lines from this move I remembered most when I first watched it as a teen. It was on tv and I only watched about 30 minutes, not even from the beginning, when I figured it was a waste of time. •••• I knew zero about films, my favorite movies at the time were action films full of violence and crime. It was a boring 70's movie and it's taken me this long to finally give it a rewatch. It's amazing what a little perspective, some film knowledge and a love of movies can do. I'm sure lots has been said about this film, far more eloquent than what I'm summarizing but wow, this film has aged well. The manic look in #alpacino 's eyes, his squirmy body language and in over his head panic is brilliant. Everyone in this film is excellent, even the minor roles. I loved the #verité style of the film as it unfolded, the claustrophobic tension, and its conclusion. A teenager couldn't possibly grasp the greatness of this film. So in a way, if felt like watching this for the first time. I'm giving this a 9 out of 10 and it's another film that reinforces my love of 70's American films. #davewatchesmovies2017 number 047.
