Last Days . by Gus Van Sant .
A mediation on sadness, desire, and lack of direction, LAST DAYS seems almost to stretch out its minutes. Its rhythms are deliberate, its images lyrical ( courtesy of superb cinematographer Harris Savides - RIP ), its mood alternately somber and droll. While the film moves slowly, its subject is strangely urgent, for you know from the start that this is Gus Van's Sant's interpretation of Kurt Cobain's suicide. And so you know that the vulnerable, mumbling protagonist will soon be dead. It's only a matter of time. And yet the film is less depressing than quietly romantic, more emotionally elusive than morally judgmental. For some viewers, this approach to the legendary Cobain will be frustrating, even boring.That is, its lack of plot and lovely long takes and gently mobile frames reflect the subject's internal state, as he is increasingly dislocated from what appears a generic "rock musician's" existence. bye.

This Minneapolis Trump rally tonight is off the chains!!! Holy Coyote. This rally is phonetically marinating the raw meat that will be defining our next election 2020 - which is gonna make 2016 look like perfunctory child’s play. The gloves are off. If Hillary is preparing for a re-match - I'm ordering the popcorn by the truckload!

Jeff Daniels has been cast to play James Comey in an upcoming CBS studios mini-series. Wait a sec, isn’t he the guy who starred in all of the ‘Dumb and Dumber’ movies? You know, the ones he made with Jim Carrey who stared in the, ‘Liar, Liar’ movie. If anything, CBS has a good casting rep. Bye.
P.S. so when is Hillary planning to make her 3rd run announcement? I predict shortly after this month’s scheduled debate. She’s just sitting back, sippin’ on a glass of Rielsing, and watching them chomp a few more bites out of one another until she makes her declaration. Watch. bye again.

The director made it clear to visual effects supervisor that his actors would refuse to do their jobs “with helmets on or tennis balls on their faces.” With that in mind, ILM developed a technology that didn’t require rigging and instead relied on a massive three-lens camera—sometimes two of them when two actors were in a scene—to capture footage for digital altering.
