Disappearing Act(or)s

pair of ILM visual effects photographs of Marty and his siblings appearing before they disappear from Back to the Future

these photographs were the original design for the sequence showing Marty with his brother and sister who start disappearing in stages while Marty’s on stage playing guitar during the ‘Enchantment Under the Sea’ dance

ILM created a number of large format versions of these photos with the three characters in various states of transparency. Ultimately, these were unused, as they went with the three standing in front of a wishing well [icollector]

Alejandro González Iñárritu‘s Birdman is be like…

Michael Keaton is an actor who was once a superhero
keaton batman
and now is like nothing or something

&

a superhero kinda like Condorman
condorman

&

his daughter is Emma Stone

who’s like a strung out/sarcastic Daisy Duck

&

Keaton’s trying to put on a Broadway show
in hopes of reviving his career
producers-1968
but it kinda goes like The Producers
with Zach Galifianakis as the hybrid lovechild
of Zero Mostel & Gene Wilder

&

one of his costars is a jerky Ed Norton
who’s out to spoil all the fun
and steal the spotlight
ed norton x
(and Andrea Riseborough is kinda doing the same thing)

which makes it feel a little About Eve
all about eve

&

the fragile Naomi Watts is about to break

&

all of it seems like one giant artistical battle
like totally like Black Swan yo!
carrey black swan
but not nearly as freaky or freakin awesome

&

but its got shades of the creative long-take editing of
Hitch’s BRILLIANT Rope

rope cut

&

the even more creative and longer takes of
Alfonso Cuaron’s BRILLIANT Children of Men

&

luckily Amy Ryan is our center of gravity
and source of comfort
amy ryan

so what does it all add up to? an interesting movie with great technique, with a story that kinda grows old after an hour

glad to see Keaton back in action, but Oscars??? psssshah – this aint no Bettlejuice, or even Johnny Dangerously, so if he wins this year, it’s a make-up call for not winning for them roles
