Film Log 7.04.2015

Lifted (2006)

Director: Gary Rydstrom
Number of viewings: ~4

Comments: A funny Pixar silent short. Nothing really extraordinary about it.

Ratatouille (2007)

Director: Brad Bird
Number of viewings: ~3

Comments: Great food film. An inspiring film that I could watch every few months a year and still be excited to watch it. Patton Oswald should do more voice work in animation.

Velvet Goldmine (1998)

Director: Todd Haynes
Number of viewings: 2

Comments: Retelling of the rise and evolution of David Bowie. Utilizes a Citizen Kane-esque plot structure. A bisexual love story. A film about how artists are constantly being influenced, stealing, and cannibalizing their influences. The mask frees the artist from the boundaries of their environment and social conditioning. Eddie Izzard does great work in the film.
