Reminds me a little of Daniel Clowes. Despite all the bullshit that's on tumblr, finding art like this is why I love it. Their clothes are amazing! I feel like I'm destined to be forever lusting after the clothes of fictional characters.I'd love to have her artwork on a tshirt. I kind of want to turn Daniel Clowes' Ugly Girls into either a patch or a tshirt. D.I.Y or die! I know... it's not really making clothes but still!
Now: The Grand Budapest Hotel came out yesterday and I went to see it in a cinema in Brighton Marina. It was a really foggy/misty night; it's like the universe knew what Day it was. I definitely did: I wore purple to match.
*elongated scream* It was amaaazing! Ugh, Wes. Seriously. You're a genius. It was aesthetic perfection, of coursem and I was just completely swept away. Ralph Fiennes was perfection. Literally. Like Flawless. And I think Gustave H. is one of the best characters Wes has written.
There was so much sartorial goodness too. From the VERY FIRST SCENE I was like "ugh, I need that coat. And those shoes." I picked out some screencaps from the trailers and featurette as to not spoil the film. Although, there are some images from throughout the film on tumblr so if you don't mind, here's the tag.
Willem Defoe's jacket was epic. He should wear it all the time. (And I swear from now on Adrien Brody will never age. Also, he looks, a tiny bit, like when he played Salvador Dali in Midnight in Paris)
This film is defintely a lot darker than Wes' other films. I think that's to do with the edge-of-fascism-1930s=Europe-setting and it translated into the clothes. yes there was the purples and pinks of the hotel and surrounding landscape and pastries but there was also a motif of black.
'Twas perfection. I feel like I could watch it again and again and again. But for now I will satisfy my Wes-thirst by reading Issue 1 of Wes Anderzine and waiting for issue 2, and writing. This is they thing about Wes' films. They always make me want to write.
What did you think of the film?
