Stoker (2013)
Directed by Chan-wook Park
Cinematography by Chung-hoon Chung

I think I have done about 10 films that have shot within one minute or five minutes of where I live in Hong Kong. That is why I can’t leave, that is why I have to stay there. Chungking Express is actually shot in my apartment. […] The bloody film was shot in my bloody apartment! (laughs) I should’ve stayed in a hotel. I’d be working all day and sleeping on the floor at night. We couldn’t mess up the set. The film’s very special in that way given the connection to my personal life…

The interesting thing is after the film—I guess it was the Hong Kong tourist board put out a map of film locations—for three of four years there’d be people following this map to my door. Especially Japanese tourists for some reason. They’d go on the escalator and look for the apartment. So, I’d be going off to work or to a bar and there’d be people waiting downstairs. Once I found kids literally on my doorstep wanting to go in.

Run Run Shaw (November 23, 1907 – January 7, 2014)

in my top 10 fav movie montages of all time

I always felt that the repetition and spontaneous sound effects in the REPULSION soundtrack had as much to contribute to the psychological thriller genre as Gilbert Taylor’s cinematography and Polanski’s directing.

In this scene, Catherine Deneuve walks across the Hammersmith Bridge set to Chico Hamilton’s drums which likely influenced Jonny Greenwood’s soundtrack work, or more recently, Andrew Dosunmu’s MOTHER OF GEORGE.

Me moving a computer desk, chair, bed frame, and mattress up Broadway earlier. The gloomy Clint Mansell score actually started playing when the desk and mattress kept falling off the cart.

Ain’t Them Bodies SaintsDirected by David Lowery2013
This was a really well done modern western with some definite early Malick/Badlands vibes. 
Rooney Mara’s track record has been pretty impressive so far and with an upcoming role in Spike Jonze’s Her, plus actually starring in a Malick film next year (with this ridiculous cast), she is very steadily becoming one of the best young actresses in the game.
Also, Casey stays being the Solange of the Affleck family, excelling in the more indie arthouse ventures meanwhile bigger bro is polishing his Oscar while getting fitted for black tights and cowls.
See this in the big screen if you can!

Plimpton!Directed by Tom Bean & Luke Poling2013
This was a really good documentary I saw recently. George Plimpton was that dude. Coming from New England Old Money kinda helps, though.
