Reasons Why I’m Sad Now That My Dance Class Is Over:
- IT WAS SO MUCH FUN!
- I WAS DRENCHED IN SWEAT!
- OTHER FORMS OF EXERCISE ARE SO BORING!
- MOST IMPORTANTLY: I won’t be taking the same train as the hot Punjabi hipster in the evenings.
"After wrapping Guardians of the Galaxy I was very homesick and I was coming home to my wife and my son, who at the time was 13 months old. My wife told me ‘Hey, listen there’s a chance he may not recognize you and he may be a little shy’ and so I came in there, and he just sat right up and had this big smile on his face. He started saying ‘Daddy, daddy, daddy!’ and I just started to cry. He saw the tears in my eyes and started doing bits to make me laugh and that just made me cry more."

EYES OF HITCHCOCK
Eyes of Hitchcock, released by the Criterion Collection, is a short and chilling edit that closely examines Hitchcock’s use of the human eye in his films. The video comes from video essayist Kogonada, known for his explorations of directors’ signature styles and use of video to pinpoint filmmaker tics, like Wes Anderson’s obsession with symmetry.
In less than two minutes, Kogonada exposes Hitchcock’s delirious interest in eyes with a fast cut of representative Hitchcock shots. What we see is an eerie close-up on eyes—Hitchcock’s successful method of instilling fear in his audience. Watch the video and look at some stills below. They really are haunting (via Paste Magazine).
