How had i never seen... Enter the Dragon

"A action movie classic" - Jaragon

"Honestly, I saw Kentucky Fried Movie -- which ends with a long parody of this film -- about 5-10 years before I got around to seeing Enter the Dragon itself. I remember so much more about [the former]". -James

Curio: McDermott & McGough

Alexa here. David McDermott and Peter McGough formed an artistic partnership during the 80s in the East Village, dressing as turn-of-the-century dandies in the scene that included Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Known as McDermott & McGough, they've worked in photography, painting, sculpture and film.  They continue to collaborate, even though McDermott lives in Dublin and McGough in New York (in quite the apartment).  


I thought their latest work, photorealistic paintings that celebrate actresses in classic films, would be of interest to TFE readers.  The work often pairs actresses from different films together in moments of intense emotion, or nestles them in modernist compositions with other elements of pop culture.

Here's a selection...

I thought it was from "Brief Encounter" and it's beautiful and haunting. I love it.

@nathaniel r-- The light and the blonde wig made me think it was Chungking Express but I don't think that's right either...

The head on the bar looks like Deborah Kerr in From Here to Eternity, but I'm not recognizing the shoes. She also looks like Gloria Grahame in anything.

The second half image (at the train station) made me think of Hiroshima Mon Amour...

also thought of "far from heaven" (although I haven't finished that movie), and "brief encounter" for the train one.

the last one is what?
