After some flame from their compilation of 135 Shots That Will Restore Your Faith in Cinema [1], Flavorwire is back with a new compilation~~~ this time around focusing on faces, their emotions and their beauty… to relative success. I don’t think I could fault them… I had enough with Wong Kar Wai (included multiple times), multiple Zhang Yimou shots (and a double appearance of Gong Li to boot!), there was Park Chan Wook, Guillermo del Toro, Leslie Cheung’s face.

It was a thing of beauty.

The only face I could possibly suggest would have been Greta Garbo’s last shot on Queen Christina, but I’m content.

I haven’t actively looked for Yu Aoi fan-made videos in a long time, but here we go~ I hope this one doesn’t get deleted, coz we’ve been suffering from that a lot lately. Regular Yu Aoi film footage applies, with nice additions of Tamatama, and Otouto… though, Raiou would have been nice to have.

v for vendetta

Remember remember the fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder, treason
Should ever be forgot…

Remember, remember~ It’s the 5th of November… again.

… get this hot?

clea duvall argo

I’ve always liked Clea Duvall. Duh, Buffy~~~ Popular~~~ Girl Interrupted, The Faculty, Can’t Hardly Wait, She’s All That. I’ve grown up watching Clea on screen. She’s a big part of my teen teen teenage years, so I was so happy to see her in Affleck’s latest film, Argo. And I said to myself, “wow~ look at that. She is so great in here.” When I ended up on IMDb that now has her profile pic from one of the Argo premiere pics, I said “OMG, she looks stunning!” I’ve never had this reaction to a photo of her before.

Her face in this snapshot is quite flawless, and it’s impossible to get near-flawless on carpets with all the flashes going on.

I’m on my way to watch Tokyo Monogatari as I type this, and I was surprised by this upload on my YouTube timeline. Opening on January 19 (note on the Yu Aoi event calendar below), Yoji Yamada has finally release a meatier look to his version of Ozu’s critically-lauded film. It’s nothing much (visually), and there’s so much crying… and Yu’s going to cry — it seems — a lot. I wanna watch it. I wonder if I watch the Ozu version, if I would need less subtitles to understand Tokyo Kazoku when it’s out. xD

You gotta think of these things nowadays~

The language seems fairly simple. xD Let’s try. Here you go:
