Kathleen plays for a show on Italian tv- a game show on which celebrities sit on a panel: They are shown art works and then each asked to title the works. This particular show featured the original Indian from the Village People, Editorial Director of Interview magazine- Glenn O’Neill, and certainment Michel Gondry.
Gondry evidently played drums with Kathleen on the third movement from my Suite.
Gondry is one of my favorite artists. An amazingly creative director and more. His wit is no whit. He brings naif elements to the screen in a DIY way. To me, he and Von Trier are so similar in the way they create these worlds: Gondry in which anything is possible and in fact, probable- and Von Trier: the opposite- this world has rules, limits, and an anti-transcendental view of human cynicism.
This is one of the most crushing scenes. A prisoner on deathrow (Bjork) sings (emotionally) to an environment that does not reciporocate.
The opposite by Gondry. A world in which anything is possible- dreams make and change landscape. there are moments are so balletic to me.
a treat. One of the newest Gondry videos- the DIY deconstructed to a simple mechanical process that becomes (through the “music”) so emotive.
I love you Michel Gondry. Can we do an album?
