dude also made some wicked awesome movie shorts, which were SOOOO wicked awesome!!!!

and in his lifetime, he made ONE feature film – Phase IV.  it didn’t do so hot with critics & moneywise at the box office, so there was no film two, but that ONE film, which I saw last nite, is equal parts BLAMMMMMMMMAZING, creepy jeepeys, crazed, and MSTK worthy material

directed by saul bass

sorry the sun set on your filmmaking career after your ambitious, perhaps biting off more than it could chew one feature!!

and there was even an alternate ending to the movie, so ludicrously delicious, that no studio in their right mind would let it be the actual ending, and so, that there studio did NOT indeed let that be the ending, but lemme tell you, this ending is the greatest, mos mind-bendingiest ending of a movie (maybe possibly probably) EVER!!!!!!!!!!!

Designed by film director Wes Anderson, Bar Luce recreates the atmosphere of a typical Milanese cafè. Although his movies often favor symmetrical tableaux, Anderson feels that ‘there is no ideal angle for this space. It is for real life, and ought to have numerous good spots for eating, drinking, talking, reading, etc. While I do think it would make a pretty good movie set, I think it would be an even better place to write a movie. I tried to make it a bar I would want to spend my own non-fictional afternoons in.’
