Noah (2014) | a part of me is so glad that Darren Aronofsky got the chance to basically make a bold, big ass budget experimental film, but the other part of me feels like it was such a waste of funds due to its batshit insanity, especially in the second half of the film.
Last Days in Vietnam (2014) | this documentary covers the harrowing true story of the evacuation of the American Embassy in Saigon, and while there are some incredible moments, overall the film is a little staid and “tv.”
E-Team (2014) | this is an incredible and raw documentary that follows members of Human Rights Watch’s E-Team (Emergencies Team) as they document and report on atrocities that happen throughout the world. you’ll end up feeling thankful knowing that these incredible people are out there in the world, fighting the bad guys.
A moment of levity: a simple, funny outtake from Paul Thomas Anderson’s 2012 film, The Master, in which Hoffman and Phoenix struggle to keep from laughing. Allow this in and let it be the much-needed, lighter moment on an awful day like today, the antidote to all the crap you don’t want to know about Hoffman’s death (and, really, we shouldn’t know the details, they are literally none of our business).
Instead, watch this guy work, and see all the light in him.
so unexpected and terribly sad. a true actor and—from i’ve heard from friends and strangers recounting meeting PSH—a humble man, too. as people have shared their favorite roles/clips from his career (and there are SO many fantastic an iconic ones), i kept going “oh yeah, he was in that one too*!” he had an amazing run and it really fucking sucks that we won’t see more great work from this man. RIP PSH.
*one such role was Gust Avrakotos, the CIA spy who was easily the best thing about Charlie Wilson’s War:
Reblogging just in case this is true. I’ll get it off my blog here later, but for now….
Yeah if this is true… I’m just leaving this here and may or not remove all art.
TIME TO READ THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CHANGES.
Oh yeah. It’s true.
What makes this even more of a shitshow though? Well, if you don’t feel like digging through all the legalese to find this section, I’ve done it for you. This is what it says as of 2014-01-25, 19:53 PST:
Read that. Read all of it. Not just the legalese in white. Not just the “skimmer-friendly” version in gray. Read both and notice how they technically, for all legal purposes, say the same things…yet completely contradict one another from any practical standpoint. The gray boxes are all nice and friendly. The legalese is basically a great big ol’ FUCK YOU.
So yeah, signal boost the hell out of this.
Don’t post quality .png/.pdf guys, this has always been a rule in any case. .jpg is the way to go. :/
well this blows. Tumblr’s been getting shit about the lack of original content and being just full of reblogs, and if people realize what the implications of these new terms are, it’s going to really kill any chance for originally work. i like posting original photos every so often, as originally, this platform was the best way to share them in terms of layout and accessibility. maybe it’s time to look for something new.
