lynch, cotillard & dior = lady blue shanghai

I vaguely remembered hearing about David Lynch making a film for Dior but I'd more or less forgotten about it until I happened upon the film itself via the Coveted. I am a big David Lynch fan and I like most of his work (in particular, Twin Peaks, which I'm a little obsessed with it). I also enjoy Marion Cotillard so, come to think of it, I suppose I was a bit bias going in to this. While I'm not that fond of the actual Dior bag featured in the film,  I do love the color blue! I think Mr. Lynch must too: the cover of his book "Catching the Big Fish" is blue, then there's the film "Blue Velvet", the blue cube in Mulholland Dr... Coincidence? I think not ;)

Anyhow,  like all good Lynch projects this short film is surreal, scary and yes, even a bit silly. enjoy...

I'd love to hear your thoughts! love? hate? On a sidenote, I really want the vintage room divider that is behind her in the hotel room scene. I've been looking for one of those for years!

Well, see you soon! xdjrd

I thought the video was a bit long and pointless...difficult to hold my attention. Yet, I haven't tried to fall in love with David Lynch. One of my goals it to watch all of "Twin Peaks" this summer. I've seen only a few episodes and absolutely loved the humor.

Yet, I do heart Marion Cotillard. I'm amazed with her progress in English since she won her Oscars. Have you seen the "forehead tittaes?" ==
It's goofy but hilarious.

P.S. The French LOVE David Lynch.

I'm the first to admit some of his stuff can be difficult to digest. I, for one, am NOT a fan of Eraserhead - much to the dismay of many of my film loving friends!
