Kim Jong Un: Der Diktator setzt für seine Ziele auf die Macht der bewegten Bilder Das nordkoreanische Regime nutzt für seine harsche Propaganda gegen die USA und seinen südlichen Nachbarn verstärkt das Internet. Vor allem YouTube spielt in den Machtzirkeln Pjöngjangs eine immer größere Rolle, um den lancierten Drohgebärden ein breites Publikum zu verschaffen.
Trees of Life by Vadim Rizov The first image in Rise of the Planet of the Apes is surprising for what it lacks, and we're not talking about F/X innovations or original ideas: it's a simple helicopter shot of a jungle, followed by dissolves closer to the forest floor. It's a recognizably green and sunny forest—not a mess of computer foliage, color-corrected to some sickly monochrome with digital haze floating around it. For a movie that relies heavily on unnatural-looking CGI animals (you get used to it fast), director Rupert Wyatt's new entry in the four-decades-and-running franchise scorns the fuzzy fake landscapes of Hollywood's loudest movies; much of the time, we're obviously looking at real buildings and locations, which balances out the chimp fakery. Two cars on fire are as real as metal and gasoline at the climax, and it's positively retro.
