“Fruit of Paradise” - Věra Chytilová
The most intimate moment of our friendship was the night Ann read this passage on rat clitorises out loud to me. We were wearing animal print robes and drinking rosé in a fancy honeymoon suite.
Sky Ferreira, David Longstreth de Dirty Projectors, Chromeo, Santigold et Hamilton Leithauser des Walkmen s’invitent au dîner de débauche organisé par les Américains de Vampire Weekend pour le clip de “Diane Young”. Une parodie pop de la Cène avec un saxophone plein de weed.

“Delpy wrote her first screenplay at 16, which a French publisher offered to turn into a novel. “It never happened, but that gave me confidence in my writing,” she said. “Then I shot a film with Sam Shepard” — “Voyager,” in 1991 — “and I read him a line from the script — one line! — and he said: ‘You’re a pretty girl. Just stay that.’ ” Delpy laughs. “So then I recoiled, and I stopped writing.” (Shepard could not be reached for comment.)”

Frances Ha is a smart and affecting study in changing cultural mores and economic constraint. I loved every second of it.
