COMMENT DU JOUR
Love Affair (1994) - as "A Year With Kate" nears its conclusion

A YEAR WITH KATE... 2 episodes left

 "A really beautiful look into the careers of one of my favorite actors, but it's made me consider the careers of so many different actors and how the great ones adapt to eras while still staying true to themselves. This is a special, lovely series. I both cannot wait for and am so sad for the end next week.-John T

Artist & Muse via Robert Doisneau

Today marks the centennial of the great French photography Robert Doisneau and though he wasn't a celebrity photographer --  the kind we obviously have the greatest use for as film obsessives -- he did them on occassion. I love this shot of one of the great auteur/muse pairings (both onscreen and off) actor Jean Marais (left) and Jean Cocteau (right). 

Here's another of Pablo Picasso and Françoise Gilot.

Remember when Anthony Hopkins and Natasha McElhone pretended to be them? I know I know. No one saw Surviving Picasso (1996)... but I did because Julianne Moore was Dora Maar (another Picasso victim... excuse me, lover!) and with Julianne I martyr myself to completism. 

If you could photograph one auteur/muse pairing, who would it be?

I would go for Julianne Moore and Todd Haynes circa Far From Heaven so I could "borrow" all the amazing costumes and sets.

Louise Brooks and Georg Wilhelm Pabst.

Tony Leung Chiu Wai and Wong Kar-wai. Toshiro Mifune and Akira Kurosawa. Jean-Luc Godard and Anna Karina.

And of course, all of Pedro Almodóvar and his various muses.

good answers all. Especially Pedro and muses. I feel like there needs to be a group shot where all the women he's ever used more than 3 times are sort of hanging all over him. in one big doggy pile of love
