my other plans this weekend is this movie..
FILM: Is that Björk we see but don’t hear?
Drawing Restraint 9 screens Thursday – Saturday, Nov. 2 – 4, 7:30pm; Sunday, Nov. 5, 2pm. Writer, director, and artist Matthew Barney (The Cremaster Cycle) and longtime partner Björk offer their first creative collaboration, a love story in which they star as two occidental guests who board a Japanese whaling ship in Nagasaki Bay. The film has almost no dialogue but is marked by the fantastic theatricality that fans of these two artists expect. It includes a tanker truck filled with liquid petroleum jelly, a parade of animals, a tea ceremony in which Barney and Björk wear costumes inspired by Shinto marriage rites, Japanese pearl-diving girls, and a climax of alarming transformations. Original music by Björk. Director: Matthew Barney 2005 USA/Japan 135min. NR 35mm
