The first minute of this arty video will give you goose-bumps, if you are so inclined to this sort of....personification.



kittytoes?

I would suggest that this is one of the most "me" videos I've ever ever ever seen...but I worry what that says about me, to you all. And yet....this video.

*runs away to write a short story*

Isn't it just AMAZING??? So contemporarily Bergman.

I went down the youtube rabbit hole, J. :)

WOW!!!!!
Whomever created this video has been reading your work! The Maiden and Death, your Persephone series, it's encapsulated in this vid.

Wow!

Re: WOW!!!!!
Right??? It freaked me out, M! For hours. It's so gorgeous...and yet disturbing. Eep. But I love it.

Re: WOW!!!!!
The end is so sad, but you're right, it's beautiful. Haunting.

Re: WOW!!!!!
The ending is sad.

Very reminiscent of City of Angels...in that....if you can see Death/Angel...your number is probably up. Love notwithstanding.

Re: WOW!!!!!
Have you seen Wings of Desire? It's the German film City of Angels was based on, I think. WoD is one of my favorite films, ever!

A while back you asked for stand alone works of yours that we liked--my memory!--the one about the boy who killed his girlfriend and her new boyfriend! And there was the one about Cheron and Death. That's another one the makers of the video must have seen. :-)

WOW. It must have been jarring for someone else to paint your picture so well. Though, I have to ask, what does it say about you that we don't know? :)

That is certainly a beautiful boy. I *really* like his skull/face.

It staggered me, K. I thought it was a dream..the next morning. Very, very disturbing. Such a gorgeous modern take on Bergman...and yes, that boy. My weakness for beautiful boys has never been more...fragile a thing until this video. And yet...one almost wants to see a Skaarsgard in that role...I don't know. The video has really freaked me the hell out.

I suppose we don't want to roll over and show ALL of our soft belly, eh?

I LOVE the way they did the subtle skull. LOVE THAT!

I never thought of a Seventh Seal costume for the dolls...now I'm wondering if a trip to the fabric store would yield a harvest.

That was genuinely incredible -- and, yes, it visually and emotionally reads like it was written for you.

It is great! And it feels totally intimate to me. I'm still staring at it helplessly.

That was cool, I'm so glad you linked it. Definitely sad, tragic, intense. I liked the look of Death, I liked that he could hand over the role, and I liked the music, too.
