    RIP Anne Wiazemsky – Actress, Novelist, Muse to Bresson, Godard & Script with Claire Denis

    October 5th, 2017
  • Anne with 1aannaautumblr_o3z1biFCTh1qc2bleo1_500 Donkey

    Anne Wiazemsky
    (14 May 1947 – 5 October 2017)

    Through her mother, she was the granddaughter of François Mauriac.
    She and Godard were married from 1967 to 1979

  • 1aannaWgodardPasolini
    Anne W worked with Pasolini in Theorema.

  • (Guardian obit)

    As Godard’s wife and star, she went on to share with him the turbulent adventure of France’s political self-questioning in the late 60s, but it would be a disservice to portray her merely as a key supporting player in the convoluted epic that was Godard’s life. As well as chalking up several important screen roles over three decades, Wiazemsky triumphantly created a new career, becoming a successful novelist – her 1993 work Canines won the prestigious Prix Goncourt.

  • Anne Wiazemsky co- scripted US Go Home with Claire Denis – see the film here.

    Anne’s relationship with Bresson was complicated.

    Anne Wiazemsky was 18 when Robert Bresson entered her life. She was cast as Marie in his 1966 movie, Au Hasard Balthazar, and the director promptly became obsessed with his teenage leading lady. “Bresson always had a very close relationship with his actresses during filming. But in my case, he pushed the experience to the extreme,” she says. “For a month and a half, we lived under the same roof with adjoining bedrooms and he never let me out of his sight.”

    Playboy interview – Christoph Waltz

    Christoph Waltz called Tarantino movies “operas without singing…”

    QUESTION :What’s the most memorable experience Tarantino has shared with you recently?

    Apart from movies I otherwise wouldn’t have seen, one of the most interesting things he showed me was a compilation of trailers he put together of teenage-rebel movies of the 1950s. It was like a cultural history of teenage rebellion and rock-and-roll culture. It was fascinating. It was probably better than watching the entire movies because you get the big highlights without having to experience the scenes in between—in which nothing happens anyway.

    On Roman Polanski

    I spent three fabulous months with Roman. I like his directness and sharp, sarcastic sense of humor. His precision in moviemaking is beyond words. He’s a grand master, even though he is one of the short guys. My view of him is tolerant and understanding of the man he is today.

    On therapy

    A perfect argument for therapy is Einstein’s quote “You can’t solve a problem by the same thinking that produced it.”

    On studying under Stella Adler

    with Stella Adler, which was the one crucial, eye-opening, pivotal experience in all my training. With Stella a world opened up for me.

    Christopher Waltz is directing himself and Vanessa Redgrave in Georgetown.

  • “He didn’t show you very much. He’d challenge you to find him. Then when you’d found him, he’d still make you guess. It was an endless game with him. The thing people missed about Jimmy was his mischievousness. He was the most constantly mischievous person I think I’ve ever met. Full of tricks, full of magic, full of outrageousness.”
    Stewart Stern

    “Every time I go to Europe, I remember that James Dean never saw Europe, but yet I see his face everywhere. There’s James Dean, Humphrey Bogart and Marilyn Monroe – windows of the Champs Elysees, discos in the south of Spain, restaurants in Sweden, t-shirts in Moscow. My life was confused and disoriented for years by his passing. My sense of destiny destroyed – the great films he would have directed, the great performances he would have given, the great humanitarian he would have become, and yet, he’s the greatest actor and star I have ever known.”
    — Dennis Hopper

  • LA Times Obit

    Stanton had a fondness for David Lynch, and Lynch had a fondness for him. He was cast as the ill-fated private detective in “Wild at Heart” and had roles in “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me” and the recent reboot of “Twin Peaks: The Return

    He turned down a role in “Blue Velvet,” however, a part later given to Dennis Hopper.

    Stanton was never married, though he had a long relationship with Rebecca De Mornay.

    One of the most anticipated title is Lucky, actor John Carroll Lynch‘s directorial debut.
    Lucky follows a ninety years old atheist, named Lucky, played by Harry Dean Stanton, coming to term with his fragile life and setting off on a journey of self-exploration. The film stares Ed Begley Jr, Ron Livingston, Tom Skerritt, Beth Grant and an appearance by David Lynch.

    (via)

    Stanton, who has appeared in more than 200 films and TV shows, including Alien, Paris, Texas and HBO’s Big Love, already worked with David Lynch on Wild At Heart and The Straight Story and will also appear in Lynch‘s Twin Peaks revival.

    In Memory of Moticos

    Ray Johnson has been called a mystery artist, outsider and visionary. He’s one of the earliest progenitors of pop art, performance, installation and happenings, and was the founder of correspondence art, phone art, Moticos and nothings. Ray’s body of work has had a growing interest and fascination since his untimely timed suicide, on January, Friday the 13th, 1995.
