obviously these are the obvious reasons there obviously should be a leos carax thread obviously:

☛ his movie mauvais sang does a cruel thing to my english way with words because i don't know the proper fucking way to pronounce mauvais sang. its translated title is the night is young, except it still goes by mauvais sang. same thing with godard's vivre sa vie -> my life to live. i'm royally spun, because i pinkyswear the problem with the translated title is way less severe than my problems pronouncing french (in general). also, i made this thread because someone gave me a copy of this movie and i got so excited i took screencaps, which i'm sharing now with my friends

☛ how is it possible to make a movie like the lovers on the bridge and how did he do it at 31

☛ bottom line: scott walker composed music for pola x and scott walker didn't compose music for a single other movie [throws down mic]
[picks up mic and apologizes]

☛ if you have a problem with his merde part in tokyo! you should really talk with merde about that or, no, either maître voland or merde, either/or, but only one of them

☛ i'd watched pola x for scott walker, and tokyo! because that's a grandslam team, but from my age and theater window i hadn't anticipated what was about to happen when i went to see holy motors. summary

and, i assume, everything he's ever made and i haven't seen everything

ok, this thread's raison d'être (<-i can type that):

It's possible to do Les Amants du Pont-Neuf at 31. But, then, it ruins your life. Money issues. France doesn't really like to give money to great directors, I guess.

I discovered Carax with Holy Motors because nobody talked about the dude before that or I was too young to hear. I loved it. Couldn't finish Les Amants du Pont-Neuf, though. And I'll try Mauvais Sang this month.

(I don't understand why they translate it the night is young when it's bad blood. Too easy, maybe?)

so, the French director singing in this song is Leos Carax (he speaks in the beginning and is the second person to sing)



this is what i've head from reliable sources (the musicians)

1. they laughed when they referred to the notes Leos Carax gives them. he has given them plenty of notes toward the construction of Annette
2. begins production next year
3. Adam Driver is currently tangled up in Star Wars and is not currently guaranteed

Michelle Williams.

i'd be as happy as anyone if Joaquin came in, but there is both Joaquin and the fact of this movie, which is an opera, and would require Joaquin to sing. but then, who thought Driver had such a voice, and perhaps only Carax could pull this off.

i'd heard this/that, tonight i read the Sparks wiki page. a "tremendous" history would be the thing to say, i believe.

  • In 1984, the Maels wrote and performed several original songs on the soundtrack for the black comedy teen film Bad Manners (aka: Growing Pains), including the film's title song, "Bad Manners"
  • The late 1980s and early 1990s saw the brothers concentrate on filmmaking, particularly an attempt to make a manga, Mai, the Psychic Girl, into a movie musical. Despite interest from Tim Burton and six years' work on the project, the film has not yet gone into production
  • In 1998 they recorded the soundtrack for the action film Knock Off, starring Jean-Claude Van Damme, directed by the acclaimed Hong Kong-based producer/director Tsui Hark (who had appeared on his own tribute song by the band on the album Gratuitous Sax and Senseless Violins).
  • Ron and Russell appeared as interview subjects in the 2009 documentary The Magnificent Tati, discussing their involvement during the early 1980s in Confusion, a proposed Jacques Tati movie for which a screenplay was written but never shot (due to Tati's death).
  • On August 14, 2009, the band premiered the radio musical The Seduction of Ingmar Bergman, commissioned by the Swedish public radio (SR) and featuring the Mael brothers themselves and Swedish actors Elin Klinga and Jonas Malmsjö, both of whom worked with Bergman in his lifetime. The musical, partly in English, partly in Swedish, tells the story of Bergman's relocation to Hollywood after his breakthrough with Smiles of a Summer Night (1956), and the surreal and discomforting encounter with the movie capital.
  • On June 25, 2011 as part of the Los Angeles Film Festival, Sparks presented the World Premiere live performance of The Seduction of Ingmar Bergman. Canadian film director Guy Maddin provided directions based on the screenplay, with Ron and Russell reprising their recorded roles on stage.
