DAY FOR NIGHT -another great movie about movies

I'm not sure if I like it more than 8 1/2 or Singing in the Rain, but when the majestic trumpet music plays, it reminds me of why I love cinema in the first place. The actors are terrific in this film as well. However, nothing will top Topsy-Turvy for me about the mystery,repetition, and heartbreak of the artistic process.❞ -Lars

Curio: Iron Men (and Women)

Alexa here.  I'm a tad caught up in all the Iron Man 3 anticipation in the air this week, probably because I am a sucker for Robert Downey Jr.'s form of charm, Lederhosen and all.  I guess this is why the franchise gets a bit more attention from me than, say, the latest tired Superman reboot might. (Okay, I don't know yet how tired it will be, but aside from Michael Shannon the idea makes me tired.)  So here are some curios that celebrate eccentric egomaniac Tony Stark. 

Glow-in-the-dark reactor necklaces, available here.

And with Mother's Day close at hand, I'm focusing on the female side of the equation (although Pepper Potts curios are hard to come by, sigh). More after the jump including ...stilettos?

Curio: Rosemary's Bric-a-brac

Alexa here. This Halloween I am taking advantage of the fact that I'm pregnant by dressing as my favorite film heroine, Rosemary Woodhouse. Some may find it in bad taste to dress as the mother of the devil's spawn when you are with child, but I'll use any excuse to celebrate Polanski's masterpiece Rosemary's Baby (1968), which has its Criterion release today.

Rosemary paper doll by Ana Camamiel.

I've ordered my copy, and while I'm at it I may buy one of these these great Rosemary curios I stumbled upon while searching the web for my costume pieces. Tannis, anyone?  

Three more vintage pieces...

FYC Best Supporting Actress Michelle Pfeiffer 

Too early?

In all seriousness though, the only thing we know for certain about the 2012/13 Oscars is that Dark Shadows will be up for Costumes (Colleen Atwood) and Art Direction (Rick Heinrichs). The Burton Factory can usually bank on those honors. I'd also personally like to thank Ms. Atwood ahead of time for La Pfeiff's plunging neckline with fancy Medieval cross necklace. Love.

Sorry! As you were. Back to the 2011/2012 Oscars for 33 more days. Every Oscar chart is updated.


Curio: Saint Werner

Alexa here.  I heard someone say once that Werner Herzog is as close as the cinema gets to a saint, and I agree. Of course there are the films (Aguirre, the Wrath of God, oy, the magic!), but there's also the exuberant man himself; he feels like a beacon in the middle of a wasteland sometimes.  Nathaniel's perfect festival wardrobe choice of a Herzog tee reminded me of this Herzog wearable I want for my birthday:

I imagine people would assume I'm wearing my grandfather or something, and I'd love to see the different reactions I'd get when I tell them it's an image of Herzog.  (I spied it Seacave's etsy shop; unfortunately he doesn't have any for sale right now, but he does have a sweet Bonnie and Clyde pendant necklace for the lawless out there.)

Recently I spotted this portrait embroidery of Werner, and knowing me, if I had $185 to burn I just might buy it.  You can find him at this etsy shop, along with Peter Sellers and Jean-Luc Godard.
