Stabilised, panoramic, High Definition footage of Abraham Zapruder’s film of the assassination of US President John F. Kennedy, by Antony Davison.
I also found this article last week about Kennedy’s assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, who it is said, as a teenager, used to fire rounds from the apartment block where he lived in the Bronx, in New York City, at neighbouring buildings, with a low-powered air gun.
An interesting addition, to say the least, to what is known about Oswald.
It seems like it was only a couple of months ago that Moonrise Kingdom was showing in cinemas, in-fact it was well over a year ago.
Still with The Grand Budapest Hotel slated for release in early March of next year, there hasn’t exactly been much time for US film director Wes Anderson for sit back and take things easy.
Going by the trailer though, “The Grand Budapest Hotel” looks a little more like, say, The Darjeeling Limited, that Anderson made in 2007, than “Moonrise Kingdom”, in that travel, of some sort, looks to be part of the story.
I’m only taking Tegan Jones’ word for it, so far, but there looks to be numerous tie-ins – even if they are of the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it type – between the “Star Wars” and “Indiana Jones” films, all of which US filmmaker George Lucas has some involvement, to varying degrees, in.
For those of you who skipped my incessant rambling and got straight to the easter egg list, this reference can be found at the beginning of the movie. Indie, Short Round and the ever unpopular Willie have just escaped a nightclub in Shanghai. As their car speeds past the front of the establishment you can see that it’s called “Club Obi Wan”.
When the studio system crumbled in the mid-50s, there was a burst of creativity. Audiences were introduced to independent films of the American New Wave genre – such as Bonnie and Clyde, released in 1967 – as well as European art house, French New Wave, spaghetti westerns, and Japanese cinema. The novel styles, plot lines, and film techniques create a noticeable uptick in Sreenivasan’s analysis.
