Matt said, Diego Luna was born to play Michael Jackson in Mister Lonely. That is probably true. End of the story - (Diego Luna is amazing, yes he is). Today I wrote a letter to Harmony Korine, but I have nowhere to send it. If anyone has suggestions, they are appreciated. Here are some facts:
- Dirty Dancing 2 is better than Dirty Dancing
- Gael Garcia Bernal is only half as hot as Diego Luna
- Oh my, that opening scene in Mister Lonely is just legendary.
Do you actually know Scott Walker? Because I have always loved Scott Walker. During the last week my life changed, though. And today I listened to my favorite Scott Walker album again (“Scott 4”) and I cried. I cried so much. This is by far one of the best albums ever. Also I recommend the Scott Walker documentary “30 Century Man”. Both 10/10.
(I did not take this video. Good sound quality though!)

Hey Hey, My My (Into The Black)
Since I didn’t know that I would go and see Neil Young until 7pm the same day, there wasn’t really any time for me to prepare mentally for this event. I could not believe what was happening to me. A very close friend of mine invited me and walking into this most likely ugliest concert venue on our planet I was kind of sceptic at first. After getting into the very front and waiting for one hour Neil finally came on stage and started with “All Along The Watchtower” and the crowd almost went crazy (but what do you expect from a bunch of old cautious rockers.) Then he played “A Day In The Life” and it was really amazing, Neil playing the Beatles, he was just so very cuddly, but still managed to destroy all strings on his Les Paul! All in all the concert was more rocky, he did not play so many acoustic numbers, I really missed “Don’t Let It Bring You Down” and was a little mad afterwards that he did not play it. Personal Highlights: “Heart Of Gold” (of course), “Cortez The Killer” took me into another dimension, and “Cinnamon Girl” and “Hey Hey, My My” as encore was just the perfect ending. No Hello’s or Thank You’s, just music… I remember I liked him a little better in 1996 at the Waldbühne in Berlin, even though I was a small girl, it already made a big impression on me! But now I learned that he can still rock, even though he is an old, cute and cuddly man with long grey hair. I love Neil!
“Give me a motherfuckin’ mic y’all”*! Sometimes it is just so hard to get a hold of really good movies. There is one genre in filmmaking that I have great respect for, the one I like to self title ‘honest and heartbreaking teen drama that is not trying to hard to come off sympathetic but is just slowly occupying your heart with every scene going by and every character developing throughout the movie’. Long genre, I know. But there is just no better way of describing this movie. I watched it even two times in one day because I felt like I want to have this feeling again. I don’t like giving too many spoilers, and people who hate spoilers should just watch the movie without even touching the trailer. Overall this is a wonderful movie about friendship between people who have really nice clothes. And hindsight!*PS: Fred Durst directed this! 10/10 (DVD release date USA: June 30th)
While in San Francisco, I was able to be part of the San Francisco International Film Festival, and watched the movie Moon by Duncan Jones (David Bowie’s son!!) at Castro Theatre. It was by far one of the best movies I have seen in a very long time. Sam Rockwell’s performance is just amazing. Apparently Jones was present and came on stage to answer the viewers questions straight after the screening. What a sympathetic guy. The movie was filmed in 33 days and because it was a “low budget” production they had to film in a studio only and kept the cast and crew pretty small. They built models instead of using CGI effects and got some pretty big names to work on the movie, because it was filmed during the writers strike, and Hollywood had not much work to offer. I was impressed. Great experience. Great story, extraordinary acting, wonderful moon model and extremely funny. I highly recommend this movie. 10/10 (Release date USA: June 12 in selected theatres)
This is the new movie with Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. It seems like the perfect movie. Reminds me (and apparently everyone else) of Garden State. But I like to think that Zooey makes every movie watchable and even more than that. I will see it in less than two weeks. IMDB already says 7.9 - I am excited for this one…
