“Gary Oldman” by Max Whitaker

English actor Gary Oldman came into to the spotlight as Sid Vicious in “Sid & Nancy”(1986). We all remember his role as Dracula in the 1992 Coppola film “Dracula”and of course in “Leon: The Professional”(1994) in which he played Stansfield. Recently, Oldman seems to be more interested in Hollywood but this won’t stop us from enjoying his more serious works and of course, this portrait of him by photographer Max Whitaker.

Andy Warhol plays Batman

If you thought I won’t be posting about Batman, you’re wrong! Only it’s my kind of batman, check it out:

“In 1964 Andy Warhol produced and directed in a film entitled “Batman Dracula”. Without the permission of DC Comics, Warhol’s version is an artistic tribute coincidentally relevant to today’s infatuation with Batman and vampires. These stills were taken during a 1967 Esquire Magazine photo shoot Warhol took with German singer Nico.” Here are the photos! Scroll down for the link to the first part of the film!
