i’m excited for the criterion collection dvd of fantastic mr fox to come out (after the release of the film itself, of course) – i love seeing wes anderson’s plans & drawings almost as much as the actual movies. here’s the second trailer in case you haven’t seen it yet (first trailer here)

partly cloudy

partly-cloudy

have you seen UP yet? you should go see it, preferably with some kids (though perhaps aged 5 and UP, my 4 year old nephew found parts a bit scary). but i have to tell you, the short film they showed before the film – Partly Cloudy – was probably my favourite, favourite part. as soon as it was over, i wanted to watch it again. probably the best short film since For The Birds. in fact, they should just make all their short films about birds.

the lost tribes of new york city

and you know like somebody walk on the street, when they listen mus- when they heard some music, because some black people…. they drove a car and then they turn the music up very loudly. and then somebody DANCING like me – some days. not some days, many days – it’s just dancing on the street. you know, it’s crazy. but i love it.
