2001: An Actor’s Odyssey

“2001: A Space Odyssey” (1968) is surely considered a great & complex chef-oeuvre by Stanley Kubrick.
And while most of us have no problem remembering the director’s name, as humungous as it is, I suppose we tend to unconsciously disregard the fact that the film had actors in it, Keir Dullea & Gary Lockwood to name a few. They played the two astronauts.
Here you’ll find some behind the scenes photos of these actors as they filmed “2001: A Space Odyssey”. You’ll notice that Kubrick is absent from most of these shots, let’s focus on their work for a change…I am not the author of these images. Copyright goes to Time.Life Magazine

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!

Kieslowski’s favorite film is: Kes (1969)

Ken Loach‘s second film (after “Poor Cow” in 1967) represents the sadism of the educational system, the confinement of family and peer violence in contrast to the freedom and beauty of a kestrel.
Introducing “Kes” (1969).
The film is an adaptation of Barry Hines‘ novel “A Kestrel for a Knave” and is Krzysztof Kieslowski’s favorite movie.
