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!)

Enthusiastic Movie Review, Marie Antoinette, Kirsten Dunst Fun and Fashionista Movie, Sofia Coppola - Marie Antoinette Joseph Josephine Joan of Habsburg-Lorraine, Marie Antoinette. In the 18th century, France, the rich kingdom of Europe, was at war with Austria to avoid Austrian expansionism. Empress Maria Theresa of Austria wanted to make peace with France in agreement with the King of France Louis XV. Marrying then Archduchess Marie Antoinette of Austria, his daughter, to the heir to the French crown, Duke of Berry, Delfin Louis Auguste (King Louis XVI), son of King Louis XV. Marie Antoinette, married at the age of 14 and will live in France. The marriage took 7 years to consummate, due to a physical problem of Delfin. Meanwhile, Marie Antoinette tries to survive the gossip and intrigues of the Court of Versailles. The teenager, Marie Antoinette, takes refuge then, in the Petit Trianon, (Palace, built, by the grandfather, of the Delfin, Louis XIV, for his lover). Delfin gave it to his wife as a gift. There, she joins her friends, to make parties and games, (the context of the film is in this period). Much later, the Queen realizes that to survive at Versailles, it takes political cunning and if around faithful collaborators. With the French Revolution, France is endowed with a Constitution. The old regime of Kingship is numbered. It results in Louis XV, guillotined in 1793. Marie Antoinette is guillotined soon after. She was accused of betraying France (lying and unfairly, all Political strategy) of having frivolous behavior (parties and games, with her friends at the Petit Trianon). Who never was young, teenage, and wanted to have fun. Imagine, a 14-year-old girl, leaving her country out of obligation and to get married and also assume such a responsibility that it is to rule a country. The future King only had the surgery, to correct the problem, and it was good only 7 years later. To consummate the marriage. Well, the teenager Marie Antoinette, had parties and games in her little palace. He influenced a whole court, with its beautiful dresses, with its joviality and joy. The style used in Época, was the Rococo, rich in details and adornments. Wigs were common, makeup with white skin, rosy cheeks and red lips, both for women and men (probably the appearance gave the impression of health, as the wigs, was much easier, because at the time it was difficult to fix the hair). Marie Antoinette was one of the best fashionistas the world has ever known. Sofia Coppola (all her films are wonderful, like this one), in her Film "Marie-Antoinette", exposes exactly this excerpt from the Queen’s life. With all the finesse and artistic mastery, Sofia Coppola has. 2006 film, with Kirsten Dunst, in the lead role. Soundtrack: New Order, Air, Siouxsie and Banshees, The Strokes, Gang of Four, Adam & the Ants, Vivaldi, The Cure, Aphex Twin, Domenico Scarlatti / Reitzell, etc Visually beautiful, with a fun soundtrack, very elegant costumes (Helena Canonero, Costume Designer). It's a movie that deserves to be "seen". The phrase, "If they don't have bread they eat brioche", was never said by the Sovereign, given the shortage of bread. Sofia Coppola's film, Marie Antoinette, which covers the nineteen years that that fabulous and tragic woman spent in Versailles. It was filmed largely on location at the palace, Grand Trianon at the Château de Versailles. Marie Antoinette had an attractive skin care routine, with blonde hair, blue eyes, a clear, thin skin and the lower lip of the Habsburg family, she bathed every day, moisturizing her skin and scenting her skin and the environment. around. She was the fifteenth child of a formidable mother, Empress Maria Teresa, who led her huge empire so efficiently that she continued to read state newspapers during childbirth. At the last minute they discovered that the bride-to-be (who liked to dance and play with children and dolls) could barely read and write. Her mother provided an intensive education and makeover, including cosmetic dentistry, a less provincial hairstyle, and an entirely new wardrobe with French-style clothes. Then the girl rolled through the forest in a special golden carriage with golden roses (symbol of the Habsburgs) and lilies (symbol of the Bourbons) bobbing her head from a forelock on the roof. Behind the huge glass windows, she was like a jewel in a padded box. From now on, her mother warned her, all eyes would be on her, and she should do as she was told. Maria Theresa had anxious premonitions; her girl was lively and affectionate by nature. However, nothing could prepare a stranger to live with the rigid etiquette of Versailles. In a strictly hierarchical system of absolute monarchy, all power derived from the king, who was next in line with God. Everything about the palace was designed to impress. As her mother had predicted, the debutante First Lady of Versailles was watched by a thousand eyes for the first signs of a misstep. Gossip, humiliating mockery and intrigue were the main occupations of the court. she had a hard job ahead of her, in fact: securing the power of the French state (and the alliance with her homeland) by giving birth to a future dauphin. King Louis discouraged her from taking an interest in politics, but gave her up to all other pastimes. Where Marie Antoinette and her handsome younger brother, the Count d'Artois, organized nightly game parties. In 1775 Louis presented her with the Petit Trianon, a jewel of a neoclassical castle of intimate and perfect proportions, located in the park of Versailles, a fifteen-minute walk from the palace. The interior was bright, bright and comfortable, with wildflower boiseries, corn cobs and roses. “You who love flowers, I give you this bouquet,” he said. In alliance with creative people-its architects, landscapers and, above all, the seamstress Rose Bertin and the hairdresser Léonard-she made the Trianon and her own person as exquisite as it could be. , She had a great passion, it was for fashion. She dressed to be fashionable, she was indebted to fashion, she was witty. She liked to dazzle in the best outfit at her own costume balls; she liked the buzz about her tall hair when she appeared in her box at the theater in Paris. She and her friend Princesse de Lamballe were the talk of the town when they showed up at the Bois de Boulogne for a winter sleigh ride—two blondes, all in white, with diamonds and furs. Silks and velvets for court dresses, muslin and lawn for the new casual dresses that matched (with Gainsborough hats) the English garden. Fans, lace, silk flowers. The wheel of fashion, turned by the queen and Mlle Bertin, her “minister of fashion”, turned faster and faster. The world of modern fashion was born at this time. Bertin (whose story resembles Coco Chanel's in her business acumen and her rise in society) was the first seamstress; Léonard was the first superstar hairdresser. Of Gascon peasant descent, he rode for his ladies in a noble carriage and (like Bertin) was given to making snobbish pronouncements. (“The great Léonard doesn't get his hands dirty with the bosses of the middle classes.”) Other women, looking at fashion magazines and having no choice but to follow the queen's example, risked bankrupting their husbands. France's own coffers were empty after she fought the British in the US War of Independence. When the Bastille fell on July 14, 1789. The Queen found extraordinary reserves of will and character. Her husband had kept her out of state affairs, but now, when he seemed unable to decide what to do (once he didn't say a word for ten full days), she found herself acting for him. She became, they said, the best man he ever had. She consulted with her ministers, spent hour after hour writing letters to people who could help them. She turned out to be her mother's daughter and very good at political intrigue. She used her charm to turn several revolutionary leaders, including the Count of Mirabeau, into the king's secret agents. Finally, in 1791, it was decided that the family should try to escape - not into exile like most of their friends and relatives, but to a fortified palace not far from the border. In the verdict, she had dressed all in white, as carefully as possible in her circumstances. She faced death with absolute self-control and dignity, and walked gracefully, even with her hands tied, to the scaffold. This amazing woman was deservedly honored in this wonderful film by Sofia Coppola.

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!
