Вспомнила, где я видела эту (чрезвычайно обаятельную и привлекательную) рожу. Lord M в Victoria – это же детектив Zen в одноимённом итальянском сериале! А вспомнила, потому что нечаянно наткнулась на серию книжек английского автора Michael Dibdin, и вот читаю-читаю, и где-то на 15 странице мне эта (заманчивая) морда возникла в голове. А до того я всю эту инфу вместе не свела… surprise! Вот что значит отличный casting.

Olivier- and Tony- awarded British actor: Rufus Sewell.

Just watched on cable agem, agem, agem (c) [A.Haspel] of a movie: “Hail, Caesar!”

Last year’s Hollywood comedy about 1950’s Hollywood. Absolutely hilarious! Actors can act (Clooney, Swinton, Brolin, Johansson, Fiennes, McDormand), writers can write (Coens). The costumes and interiors are fantastic, the storylines – bizarre, dancing – spectacular, and I was laughing my head off from start to last credits.

Saccharine Abbey

Duke (or is it Earl?)* Kuragin with hairdo of a gypsy violinist! Making eyes in a carriage in exotic Sankt-Petersburg! Ex grand-duchess, now a possible prostitute in Hon Kong! Count Rostov, pulling chair for a lady like a good waiter he is (very suitable for his new station in life, I’m sure)!

* “Prince”, – see comments

Gray Matters

October is Architecture month in NY, it’s even called Archtober. And within Archtober there is an Architecture and Design Film Festival.

And within the festival is documentary film about the life of Eileen Gray – one of very few design personalities I can say are my models – or as close to models as anybody I can think, with my contempt of authority. Her biography was first book I bought here in US.

It is running tonight in Tribeca Theaters – and if you’d come you have  a chance to meet me there, at 9pm.
