Chameleonic Musician David Bowie Is Constellation Near Mars. David Bowie had several phases and styles in his creation as a musician: MOD (60s) - HIPPIE (60s) Space Oddity - GLAM (1970 - 1974) The Man Who Sold World (1970) Diamond Dogs (1974) - PLASTIC SOUL ( 1975 - 1976) Young Americans (1975) Station to station (1976) - BERLIN (1976 - 1979) Low, "Heroes" and Lodger - NEW ROMANTIC (1980 - 1988) Let's Dance (1983) and two more albums and back to rock with the band Tin Machine - ELECTRONIC (1995 - 2001) Outside (1995) Earthling (1997) - NEOCLÁSSICO (2002 - 2016) Hours (1999) - The Next Day (2013) and Blackstar (2016). His entire Creation as a Musician was guided from the beginning by his continuous quest as a man to attain Divine Enlightenment. And Bowie left all that, duly documented in his vast musical oeuvre. His Life Trajectory was ALL Inscribed in His Musical Work. David Bowie devoted himself to modern occultism. His own definition of himself: "I'm closer to the Golden Dawn Immersed in Crowley's uniform I'm not a prophet or a man of stone Just a mortal with the potential of a superman." - Quicksand. Everything documented from start to "end." With Great Style and Great Elegance. And for ALL that, he was honored with a lightning-shaped constellation. Bowie is now made up of seven stars: Sigma Librae, Spica, Alpha Virginis, Zeta Centauri, SAO 204 132, SAO 241 641 and Beta Sigma Octantis Trianguli Australis. Just as it was drawn on his face on the cover of the album Alladin Sane (1973), and the location chosen for the lightning-shaped constellation, it was very close to Mars, as in the song Life on Mars from the album Hunky Dory (1971). At the request of a radio station in Brussels, the observatory for space studies MIRA (Institute for Astronomical Research of Monterey), registered the constellation in honor of the musician. As I Said, Hamlet, by William Shakespeare: There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy. That's why David Bowie, will forever be in my Gallery, as an example of one of the Most Elegant Men. (To read + Articles 2020, 2021 Click Article Archive, Click the month, scroll down, just read!)

Lost in Translation Sofia Coppola Touching Movie, Incredibly Funny and Painfully Sad. Bill Murray is the protagonist of Sofia Coppola's movie, she says she wrote the role especially for him. She received the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, and the film also ran for an Oscar. It evokes an incredibly funny movie, painfully sad, as well as very modern and sexy. Murray (in one of the most exquisitely controlled performances, he seems to exist, just exist, in the character and situation created for him by Sofia Coppola) plays Bob, a former movie star staying at a luxury hotel in Tokyo 'Hyatt Tokyo', where he's filming a Japanese whiskey commercial 'Suntory Scoth'. In the scene, the Japanese advertising director speaks a huge Japanese sentence, while the translator translates a very short sentence for Bob. Bob despises himself for doing this, he is aware that the big reason for it, besides the money, is to get rid of a marriage that is getting dreary, twenty-five years of marriage. Meanwhile, in another part of the hotel, Charlote (Scarlett Johansson), is a thoughtful young woman. She has been married for just two years to John, a famous photographer (Giovanni Ribisi). Jhon is on a job where he's taking pictures of a trendy indie band and Charlote has agreed to come along to Tokyo and have fun as best he can and also see friends of both of them in Tokyo while John is working. But disturbed by the clamoring strangeness of Tokyo's soaring buildings, Charlotte experiences a flash of panic about her own life. What is she doing here? Does she know so much about her husband? Her despondency increases when she and John in the hotel lobby meet an American Hollywood actress "Woman", and John is very excited to photograph her and go out together, remember he is a famous celebrity photographer. Charlotte is a Yale graduate in Philosophy. During a tense conversation with John's friends at the bar, Charlotte makes eye contact with Bob, who is drinking himself into oblivion there every night, assiduously preserving the integrity of his disdain. Bob is in a midlife crisis. Charlotte is really trying to figure out what she wants out of life. Bob's smile is irresistible, and soon they are hanging out, having fun, sharing a great private joke on the madness of Japan, thus increasing a growing tenderness between them. At the party where Charlotte takes Bob, Modern party and very modern Japanese friends, the owner of the apartment where the party is 'going on', it was he who decorated the whole apartment and also painted, there is one who is a surfer, there is another who speaks in French with Bob, a modern soundtrack in the background, a karaoke where the best Pop Rock sing, as I said the party is super modern. Both can't sleep o, "jet leg" affects them. 'Lance Acord', the director of photography, frames Charlotte in a large 40-story Hotel window, with Tokyo remotely at her feet. She feels young, alone and exposed. It shows Bob inscrutably looking ahead, feeling older, tired, patient, unexposed because he has a more secure sense of who he is. Bob and Charlotte's grand adventure hits a lovely setting when they confess their most personal fears to each other while lying on a bed, where a little finger, Charlotte's injured toe, touches the side of Bob's foot. And when Bob tells her when her children were born. Charlotte asks, "I'm stuck, it gets easier"? (It's about life and marriage). Bob responds: "Yes, it gets easier", "The more you know what you want, the less things are bothersome". And they both manage to sleep, after sleepless days. Charlotte says, "We'll never come back here again", "Because it will never be so much fun again". That connection must never be relived beyond this delicately ecstatic moment. The words whispered in Charlotte's ear by Bob. We cannot hear them. It feels meaningful and true to both of them. Before they parted forever. Lost in Translation is a delicately sensitive, existential film about a great friendship where two generations meet, where one learns from the other. Exchanging information about existential crisis, life, joy, fun. You won't be able to take your attention away from the movie. The photography is beautiful. Ditto soundtrack. A touching movie. A wonderfully warm and witty love-sharing story. Where you will feel lighter than air.

Eyes Wide Shut Fractal Puzzle Strangely Beautiful Movie Tom Cruise Nicole Kidman Stanley Kubrick started out as a photographer for the New York magazine 'Look'. This explains a lot the perfect framing and stunning photography of his films and the visual and sensory experience we feel. Considered by many to be one of the greatest filmmakers. Reputably obsessive and meticulous, he has overseen, with all the attention to detail, every aspect of his films. A perfectionist, he commanded total control of his films, even the selection of books and newspapers that appeared in the background. His works have a visual and aural clarity, a demanding use of camera work, framing, lighting, positioning, special effects, music etc. Their unfolding narratives subvert traditional cinematic narrative conventions, leaving audiences perplexed. Kubrick's films are challenging because he tells a story in a way we're not used to. Master of narrative subtlety. Kubrick was a lifelong chess player. In Eyes Wide Shut, on each exploration trajectory he reveals unexpected details and layers of meaning, strategic orchestrations within a dream maze. Extraordinary film within its wide scope of themes and subjects. Sex is indeed the focus of the film, but the allusions to class, the world's ruling elite and powerful secret societies are significant. Also allusions that span literature, music, opera, mythology, religion, politics, history, etymology, cinema. Kubrick passed away 5 days after sending the final version to Warner Bros. This was the Master's last movie. The film Eyes Wide Shut was adapted from Traumnovelle, translated from the German means Dream Story, by Arthur Schnitzler, Austria, 1926, set in Vienna. Kubrick, upgraded to Contemporary. Tom Cruise plays Bill Hartford (Dr Bill, reference to a dollar bill), a wealthy New York doctor with an elegant high society clientele and a magnificent apartment on Central Park West, happily married to the beautiful Alice (reference to Alice in "Wonderland" a fairy tale about a privileged girl who is bored with her life and who "crosses the mirror" to end up in Wonderland"), (Nicole Kidman), former art gallery director, now a housewife, and takes care of her daughter. Troubled with each other by their flirtatious behavior, at a beautiful party hosted by an elite patient, Victor Ziegler (Sidney Pollack), and by drinking champagne and cannabis sativa, in home, has a furious fight in which Alice defiantly confesses her lustful thoughts to a naval officer in her past. During the party, Bill and Alice go their separate ways.Alice meets a man named Sandor Szavost, Hungarian, who asks her about Art and the Love of Ovid. Book series, written during ancient Roman times. The first book begins with an invocation to Venus - the planet associated with the goddess of eternal youth, goddess of beauty, fertility and physical love (sex). The star of Venus or Ishtar, appears several times in the film, and in the house and Victor Ziegler, where the party takes place. And Bill is talking to two models who flirt with him and who tell him they want to take him "where the rainbow ends"... Jealousy, Bill then goes on a nocturnal odyssey, in search of extramarital adventures, never accomplished , going through countless ordeals, even ending up in a secret society, uninvited, invading, where he witnesses scenes that shouldn't be profaned and public, in a luxurious house on Long Island. Since he was never initiated into that secret society, Bill shouldn't even have to to know it existed, let alone witness one of his "meetings." So how did he find out about it? Well, a little bird told him. Nick Nightingale At one point during his strange night out, Bill meets his old friend Nick Nightingale , who studied medicine with him, but did not graduate, at a jazz cafe. The professional pianist reveals to Bill that he is sometimes hired by mysterious people to play, blindfolded, at mysterious parties filled with women b onites. This information stirs and intrigues Bill because, since his conversation with his wife, he seems to be looking for some kind of... experience. Nick ends up making a big mistake and agrees to provide Bill with all the information he needs to access the site. A nightingale is the type of bird known to sing at night, just as Nick Nightingale “sings” secret information at the beginning of Bill's odyssey. The password to enter the ritual is “Fidelio”, which means “fidelity”, the main theme of the film. More importantly, as Nightingale points out, "Fidelio" is the name of an opera written by Beethoven... After getting the details of Nightingale, Bill rents a costume at a store called "Rainbow"... and then heads to Somerton, the property where the party is being held. The location selected to film the exterior scenes is Mentmore Towers, built in the 19th century as a country home for a member of the world's most prominent and powerful elite family: the Rothschilds. The internal scenes of the party were filmed at Elveden Hall, a private home in the UK designed to look like an Indian palace. When the "festivities" begin, a Tamil song called "Migration" plays in the background, adding to the South Asian atmosphere (the original version of the song contained an actual recitation of scriptures from the Bhagavad Gita, but the chant was removed in the final version of the film). This peculiar Indian atmosphere, combined with the scenes witnessed by Bill as he walks through the house, points to the most important part... Bill's journey as a whole has its meaning... The last lines of the film conclude and define the journey of Bill. After running around New York and getting turned on by all sorts of situations, Bill comes face to face with his wife and talks about how he is "awake" now. With its “life force” fully charged. Alice ends the film by completing a sentence... The meticulous symbolism and imagery of all of Stanley Kubrick's Works often communicate another dimension of meaning - one that transcends. To honor Stanley Kubrick's contribution to science fiction cinema, the highest mountain range on Pluto's moon, Charon, was named "Kubrick Mons" in April 2018. It has a Mythological Meaning. But the etymology of 'Charon' comes from the Greek, meaning 'sharp gaze' and 'fierce', 'lightning', or 'febrile eyes'. Eyes Wide Shut is a fractal puzzle of infinite dimensions. Kubrick introduces us to mythical theater. Watch the last work, performed by Master Stanley Kubrick. (To Read Articles 2020 and 2021+, Click Article Archive, Click Month, Scroll Down and Just Read)

Inspiring Movie Review, To Catch a Thief Grace Kelly Cary Grant Alfred Hitchcock Humor Beauty Elegance Fashion and Stunning Landscapes Cary Grant .... John Robie (The Cat) Grace Kelly .... Frances Stevens Film based on the novel by David Dodge. Cary Grant is John Robie, a retired jewel thief who lives quietly on the Cotê d`Azur. And he is under suspicion of having committed several jewel thefts in Nice and Cannes. And he can only prove his innocence by catching the real culprit. But in the beautiful Cotê d`Azur he meets the stunning heiress Frances Stevens who is Grace Kelly, rich, bored, spoiled and enthusiastic and also curious about the reputation of John Robie ("The Cat"), Cary Grant. With gorgeous scenery. One of the most Elegant films, Hitchcock, knew what he was doing. Cary Grant and Gracy Kelly were together, actress and actor, some of the most elegant that ever passed through the cinema. They had natural Elegance. And beautiful! Gracy Kelly's costume was all designed by Edith Head, famous costume designer of the whole movie industry. And she had Gracy Kelly as her muse. Cary Grant, chose his own closet for the movie, because he was very elegant in real life, off screen. For the film Cary Grant found the red polka-dot scarf and the striped sweater in a local store. The scarf worn casually, tied around the neck in the style of a tie. This style was copied by many. The "look", entirely Casual, by Cary Grant. On his feet a CG handmade moccasin for Maxwell's, the pants of a suit. Very elegant. Look at Grace Kelly's "look" on the beach, with cat eye sunglasses, a light yellow swimsuit, and a scarf tied around her head in the same shade. Elegance on the beach. Grace Kelly's evening look is beautiful! She has class and a natural sense of Elegance, she seems to float, when she walks. Cary Grant in a tuxedo, lots of Elegance, natural. Innate Sense. The scene where Grace Kelly meets Cary Grant, in the lobby of the Hotel, she wears a black swimsuit, with a skirt-like beach outlet, a wide-brimmed hat (Flying Num), and a black turban. (One of Grace's signature pieces, made legendary by the future princess). In the picnic scene with the wonderful view of Monte Carlo, Grace Kelly wears a coral dress with white prints on the top (in perfect combination with the gloves) and with a pleated skirt and a coral scarf tied around her neck. Cary Grant with his usual Elegance. The scenes were improvised by the two, who were very much at ease with each other, (Hitchcock, approved). In the fireworks scene, both are in absolute classic elegance. Grace Kelly, is in a pearly white chiffon dress, with a magnificent diamond necklace. Cary Grant in a formal "look", which with all its Elegance, made it look, relaxed and fun. The clothes were a natural extension of himself (THIS IS THE BEST DEFINITION, FOR ELEGANCE). In the final scenes. We have a costume ball, held in a mansion on the Cote d'Azur.All the extras wore costumes in the style of Marie Antoinette's court (which I will talk about in another, article, about Sofia Coppola's film, made about Marie Antoinette). It was the most expensive scene that the stylist Edith Head had ever done. Grace Kelly, is dressed as "a fairy princess (Hitchcock's order). The ball gown, worn by her, with a huge gold mesh skirt, adorned with fabric birds and a gold mask, and on her head a gold wig (remember, all in the Marie Antoinette style). In an action scene, in which Cary Grant, walks on the roof ("The Cat'"), to prove his innocence. He wears black from head to toe, including a polo sweater. As the scene ends, he finishes the "look," with an elegant black coat, just in time for the final scene, on the terrace of his house in the hills, when he agrees to marry Frances (Grace Kelly). Cary Grant said, "I always went to work whistling." Evidently reflected, we saw all his Natural Elegance on the screen. Anyway, this film, shows, Natural Elegance in Cary Grant and Natural and Classical Elegance in Grace Kelly, mixed with Hitchcock's irresistible touch of English humor. And the stunning little City-State Monaco. You will be enchanted by such beauty in everything and everyone throughout the Film!
