Archives For October 2013

I actually am not sure whether Pepel (Пепел) is a series or a TV movie. It doesn’t seem to be a theatrical film, though. It’s supposed to air on October 27th (so about now) in Ukraine and on the 28th in Russia (through Channel 1). If my reading is okay, this seems to indicate that Pepel is a 12-episode series, and its got the whole historical war mystery setting.

The show stars Yevgeni Mironov, who also worked with Khamatova in Dostoevsky, as the title character, alongside Vladimir Mashkov, Elena Lyadova, and Sergei Garmash. I’m not sure who Khamatova is supposed to be playing.

I wonder if it will eventually get subtitled.

It seems like a cruel joke that now the memory of my dad is forever linked to Dexter. It isn’t enough that the both of us watched the show, and that I was waiting for the final season to be completely subtitled so he could watch it.

Now, the final episode in which Dexter bids Harrison goodbye and Deb is able to let go is the moment my dad bids me goodbye and finally lets go. It’s almost scary that the Dexter FB page posted this message the day my dad passed away:

The post seems to be gone now, but when that showed up, I couldn’t help but express my incredulity. “I want you to remember that every single day until I see you again. Daddy loves you.” I will, dad. There won’t be a single day in which I don’t think of you and how much I miss you.

Ever since I saw Madhuri Dixit on Devdas, I was fascinated with her eyebrows because… well, BECAUSE!

Can you do that? HAVE YOU TRIED TO PULL THAT OFF? That’s a talent right there. And it seems to be her thing. I mean, I can move my eyebrows alright- one up and up the other goes, but it looks more like a look of mad confusion than the actual ease with which she uses.

You know how everyone EVERYONE likes to point out Aishwarya Rai was Miss World and ALWAYS point out she was at one point the most beautiful in the world. It irks me, because you get to see Devdas and see the most stunning amazingness.

And she’s overlooked by us (non-indian audience).

I mean, it does help that she’s gorgeously dressed and accessorized. And Madhuri Dixit has such charisma while talking or performing — not her dance numbers on film — but live or pre-recorded presentations. I haven’t gotten around to watching HER starring filmography just yet, but I literally spent a couple of hours browsing through her videos on YouTube.

I loved her throwing in some Michael Jackson movements, and she gave me some Flashdance vibe at some point, but she does have such ease to entertain and enjoy herself on stage. It makes the experience of watching her such a pleasure. I really can’t wait to get to her filmography.

Any day now.

That close-up on Chulpan Khamatova’s flawless face is perfection.

Though I don’t think that these ten months worth of wait after the release of the Making Of [1] back in January make the video good, I’m happy the video is finally out. I haven’t been able to find an official HD upload of it, so this fan upload will have to do for now.

There’s an official upload, but surprisingly it isn’t in HD either.
