What Do I Love More Than Anything Else?

Search Engines. Happy Valentines Day.

Hatred confuses life; Love harmonises it.
Hatred darkens life; Love illuminates it.”

I love the art direction and the editing of this clip for W – made in 2011. I must agree with Justin Timberlake in that the first film to make me cry was Lion King. It got me literally every single time… that is the power of Disney. The most recent film that made me cry was another animated film – the opening sequence of Up. The beautiful montage of Ellie and Carl overlaid with the music of Michael Ginacchino is in my opinion one of the most beautiful and touching moments in cinema. Voila, my love of animation shone through again!

“What do you wear to bed?”

1. A new commercial from Chanel no. 5 discussing Marilyn Monroe’s famous quote and the media  that follows the sex symbol, movie actress, and international star. My gosh, I am always impressed by her carefree persona.

2. This video is very visually pleasing and well edited – from the font choices to the classy white-and-black backgrounds. This ad displays archived footage, new images, text, recordings, and a voice-over. Almost imitating a documentary film style – an investigation into Marilyn’s legacy in the 50s. However, the fascination with Marilyn continues to elicit excitement and allure as this Channel ad demonstrates perfectly. Plus, for the high class image that Chanel No. 5 wants to promote, I believe this video serves its goal of glamour and appeal very well.

Oh la la, Marilyn’s star persona never get old: “I’ve never fooled anyone. I’ve let people fool themselves. They didn’t bother to find out who and what I was. Instead they would invent a character for me. I wouldn’t argue with them. They were obviously loving somebody I wasn’t.”

“We must define entertainment as a commercial commodity, produced and consumed as part of a capitalist industrial system. In return for the price of admission to an entertainment, we expect to witness some kind of performance produced by people who make their living performing for paying audiences.”(Maltby, 56)

What can I say, I enjoy paying George Clooney and Béyonce to do their job! With films, you don’t receive a commodity or physical good, instead you receive a service, an experience, a set amount of time “entertained”. Sans aucun doubt, j’adore le département du cinéma et l’audiovisuel et la philosophie que nous apprenons sur l’industrie du divertissement.
