September is the January of Fashion.

“I think that what I often see is that people are frightened of fashion and that because they’re scared of it, or it makes them feel insecure they put it down. On the whole, people that say demeaning things about our world. I think that’s usually because they feel in some ways excluded or not part of the cool group. So as a result they just mock it.” – Anna Wintour (Editor-in-Chief of Vogue)

In the documentary: The September Issue (R.J. Cutler, 2010)

Watch The September Issue and The Devil Wears Prada together. It provides a stark contrast between a fictional story written by Wintour’s past assistant and a ‘documentary’ film that follows Wintour behind-the-scenes of actual Vogue. Whether or not fashion interests/scares you, I promise it’s worth your entertainment and intellectual time.

Cinematography: Mark Lee Ping Bin, Kwan Pun Leung, Christopher Doyle

Have you ever stopped to look at the film itself? I mean actually STOP. and look at it. Acknowledge it. Not its narrative, characters, or realism. The cinematography can be absolutely beautiful and breathtaking with it’s enhanced colours, deep compositions, shifting focus and subtle reminders. Cinematography does not shout, it whispers. And those that listen will discover a hidden beauty that flashes every 24 fames per second.
