Lana Turner, in color.

Femme Fatal Lana Turner, known for her role in The Postman Always Rings Twice (1946), The Bad & The Beautiful (1952) and Imitation of Life (1959) is photographed by here by Hungarian photographer Laszlo Willinger.
Willinger invited by studio photographer Eugene Robert Richee to move to the United States. After establishing a studio in Hollywood, California, Willinger became a frequent contributor to magazines and periodicals, providing magazine cover portraits of some of the most popular stars. Willinger was one of the first Hollywood photographers to experiment in the use of color.

Hear “The Ear” (1970)

© Filmed in 1970, but only released in 1989, introducing Karel Kachyna’s experimental masterpiece “The Ear” (1970).
It tells the story of Ludvík (Radoslav Brzobohatý), a communist senior ministry official & his alcoholic wife Anna (Jiřina Bohdalová). The tale plays out over night while Ludvík continuously imagines atrocious things, that he is suspected of treason and will be arrested. The psychological warfare commences while he tries to find evidence that “Big Brother” is eavesdropping on them.

Stylistically, the film exquisitely alternates between scenes shot in complete darkness (lit only by small torches or candlelight, very film-noir) & overexposure while Ludvík recalls the events of the night before & his associations with famous officials.

Keep on “Following” (1998)

© Love him or hate him, Christopher Nolan‘s experimental directorial debut (unlike his later films) is actually one of my favorites and I find it visually stunning.
No professional actors were hired for this film. Check it out, it’s “Following” (1998). In this photo, Jeremy Theobald.
