OK, I give up, all hope is gone. My favorite singer/songwriter of all time Nick Cave (once a hardcore punk rocker) has a cameo in a cat movie, and this link takes you to that tragic millisecond in the trailer: youtu.be/xzDr_tbL-es?t=51. Nick, you've come a long way since youtu.be/wgsJcZro7Yk?t=97. ...

NEW VIDEO ESSAY ON FILM: Dune Director Denis Villeneuve’s Career Long Quest for Identity by CineFix - IGN Movies and TV
With films like Arrival, Blade Runner 2049 and Dune, Denis Villeneuve is the official go-to director for a heady brand of epic science fiction. And while sci fi trappings have dominated his recent work, a career-long exploration of identity has defined his work to a much greater extent. All of his films have asked fundamental questions about what defines a person, what makes them who they are. Here follows a brief history of Denis Villeneuve and identity.
Before adapting Frank Herbert’s classic novel with Timothee Chalamet, before Harrison Ford reprised one of his most iconic roles as a maybe replicant Rick Deckard, before Amy Adams talked to aliens with Jeremy Renner, before Emily Blunt was swept up in a cartel thriller with Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin or Hugh Jackman tortured Paul Dano in Prisoners or Jake Gyllenhaal met his own doppelganger in Enemy, the French Canadian filmmaker studied the impact that trauma, violence, a character’s actions, even cosmic chance has on ones sense of identity. From a mass murderer in Polytechnique, to discovering a mother’s mysterious past in Incendies, to the magical realism of potential parenthood in August 32nd and Maelstrom, Villeneuve constantly explores the boundaries of what makes a person who they are.
This video was written by Siddhant Adlakha, edited by Tom Jorgensen and Clint Gage, with titles designed by Casey Redmon.

This is so rude. Whoever did this, and whoever is captioning / headlining news articles implying it was intentional are just evil. Although the incident was preventable, and those who were negligent should and will be held accountable, to paint Alec as a murderer when he is no doubt going through either the worst day or one of the worst days of his life is pretty damn low.

The Sony a7 IV is frustratingly priced at $2.5k compared to the not-uptight a7 III that it replaces -- but, it still feels inevitable as your everyday workhorse camera, like the last time. Especially these days, getting early in line is critical. Here's the pre-order link at B&H that just went up: bhpho.to/3vzTapp ...
