Short Film of the Day: Porcelain Unicorn

Short Film of the Day: Porcelain Unicorn
Why Watch? Because sentimentality never dies. This short got some attention when it won a contest created by the Phillips Corporation which had a few restraining parameters in place. The films could only have six lines of dialogue, and they had to be: What is that?It’s a unicorn.Never seen one up close before.Beautiful.Get away, Get away! It’s pretty limiting, but this short is a phenomenal example of where limitations can create something truly inspired. What does it cost? Check out Porcelain Unicorn for yourself: Trust us.

Seeing in the Dark Credit: cliff1066tm. Patient TN was, by his own account, completely blind. Two consecutive strokes had destroyed the visual cortex of his brain, and consequently, his ability to see. It is not uncommon for stroke patients to suffer brain damage, but the case of TN — referenced by his initials, the general practice in such studies — was peculiar. Known as selective bilateral occipital damage, TN’s unusual injury made him the subject of much interest while recovering at a hospital in Geneva. To further test the extent of TN’s abilities, researchers from Tilburg University in the Netherlands devised a simple yet decisive experiment: an obstacle course. TN’s rare condition is known as blindsight. The researchers explained that TN’s success indicates that “humans can sustain sophisticated visuo-spacial skills in the absence of perceptual awareness.”

The 20 Best Foreign Language Films of the Decade As part of our epic, two week long Decade in Review, master of the Foreign Objects Rob Hunter lays down his picks of the best foreign language films of the decade. I can reel off the best foreign films of the year without pause and feel fairly confident that I haven’t missed anything notable, but best of the decade? Adding to the difficulty is the fact that of the thousands of films released each year in other countries very few of them actually ever reach our shores in any official capacity. Then there’s the issue of release dates… do I use the year the film was first released or the year it finally reached the US? There’s way too much gray area here, so we’re going to simplify things a bit. This is my list of the best foreign language films of the past ten years, and I highlight that ownership because I don’t expect it to look too similar to lists put out by most other critics. 3-Iron(Kim Ki-duk, South Korea 2004) Amelie(Jean-Pierre Jeunet, France 2001) Damn I love this movie.

Cannes retrospective: ‘Pulp Fiction’ (1994) | Miramax This year’s Cannes Film Festival came to a close on Sunday, and with it, our week-long retrospective. After having already covered Steven Soderbergh’s breakthrough and Jane Campion’s milestone, we thought we’d conclude our series with a look back at what many consider to be the crown jewel of the Miramax Library — Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction. The above interview aired on the Charlie Rose Show in October of 1994, just ahead of Pulp‘s theatrical release in the US. In fact, both Rose and Tarantino spend surprisingly little time discussing Pulp at all, choosing instead to focus on the director’s cinematic idols, his philosophy on genre, and, perhaps most fascinating, his long-term aspirations (“I’ve always had a game plan”). “You should be semi-embarrassed about certain people seeing your movie.”- Quentin Tarantino As with any archival footage, it’s difficult to imagine how the audience of 1994 may have received this exchange.
