Movies I'd Like You To Watch

Apparently the film I've been waiting 4 years to see titled Enter the Void finally comes out in America today. Enter the Void is the 3rd film from writer/director Gaspar Noé. He is, in my opinion, one of the finest directors working today. His first films I Stand Alone and Irreversible are two of my favorite French films.

Gaspar Noé also wrote and directed Carne, which was the short I Stand Alone was based off of. Carne is such a ferocious and raw self-examination in human behavior that watching it makes you feel as if you've just heard a disturbing story that happened right in your own neighborhood. Carne is the type of film I want to make.

Enter the Void is about a drug-dealing teen who gets killed in Japan, after which he reappears as a ghost to watch over his sister.

Go-Daddy, $300,000 and Cats With Guns

I don't know if you know, but for some reason wants to change their amazing ad campaign.  They want free-lancers to do it, like me and my friends. And they're paying handsomely.

So, some of the crew from the other commercials and myself got together and cooked up an idea that we think has a pretty good chance of winning the big prize. I can't say exactly what it is, because I don't want you to steal it, but I can say it involves cats with guns strapped to their backs.

We'll have it done September 30th.
