Inception reviews are mostly good

#
The new Christopher Nolan helmed film, Inception, debuts Friday, July 16, and the reviews are beginning to pop up. Some of the reviews are glowing. Christopher Nolan did direct the new Batman films, which are exceptional. Leonardo DiCaprio is certainly an excellent actor, and that means automatic good reviews because some critics are sheep like that. Some critics gave the film some considerable stick. Maybe the film didn't live up to expectations.   Inception gets good reviews at ...

La Vitesse Et La Pierre

Director: Marcus Palmqvist, Igor Zimmermann, Frode Fjerdingstad.
'La Vitesse Et La Pierre' is an epic short film created with audio and still images. A film about the restrained Iris and the fleeting Bernard and the solitude that unites them. The filmmakers wanted to make the process into an adventure. The film is shot in Western Sahara, Stockholm, Sweden and Norway. Along the 3000 kilometres, which they drove through West Africa, they slept in the trunk of their car outside deserted towns, burned shoes in the desert and had long discussions with African border police, about whether photography can be art. This was to explain why they had 30 kilograms blue dye in the luggage. 'La Vitesse Et La Pierre' is the result of an experiment that explores the intersection of film and photography. - The boundaries between the traditional roles of director, photographer and actor in this production are dissolved. The result is a humorous, poetic and highly visual journey.
