Postmodern gangster revenge story that self-consciously uses aging cinema icons Terence Stamp, Peter Fonda and Lesley Ann Warren to contrast the freewheeling 60s with the grim and gritty turn of the millennium, even using licensed footage from an old Stamp film to create a realistic flashback. For an “LA noir” story, it’s also one of the sunniest films you’ll ever see.
Ah yes! My beloved Stella cosplay from San Japan! Initially this was for Daft Punk’s Crescendolls group but half the members couldnt make it so since I worked so hard, Arpegius and I decided to go ahead and do a photoshoot anyways.. This cosplay means a lot to me because not only am I actually a bassist, but Daft Punk has been one of my favorites since before I can remember <3 Hopefully someday we can unite the entire band!!

Stills from Sans Soleil, directed by Chris Marker, 1983.
This film is already a spectacular meditation on travel, the world, and Japanese culture. The fact that it has shots of Galaxy Express 999, the Inugami Clan, and footage of early arcades in Tokyo is just the cherry on top.
