Hayao Miyazaki’s sole mid-90s music video is a sci-fi masterpiece

Hayao Miyazaki is a singular director, and perhaps the greatest anime director of all time. However, back in 1995, he was struggling to create what would become one of his masterpieces, Princess Mononoke. So, as a side-project, he directed the seven-minute long music video for Japanese rock band Chage and Aska’s single “On Your Mark.” However, the short film has all the earmarks of his signature style, and it’s breathtaking as a result.

“On Your Mark,” told in a non-linear format and completely without dialog, follows two police officers and the angelic girl they try to save. In the background, Miyazaki leaves hints that the world is enduring what looks like a long period of strife, but the film keeps things fairly intimate throughout….

Becoming Vermeer: hobbyist recreates a masterpiece to solve one of art’s greatest mysteries

17th Century painter Johannes Vermeer has been an enigma since his work discovered in the early 1900s. How did the artist manage to exercise such consummate control over tone and blur hundreds of years before the color photograph was invented? One theory involves a camera obscura — an early optical device that could project an image of what it saw onto a screen, potentially giving him the equivalent of a photograph to work from. This month, Vanity Fair tells the story of longtime tinkerer and inventor Tim Jenison, who embarked on a five-year quest to recreate the conditions of Vermeer’s workroom, hoping to see if simple technology could turn a novice into an oil painting master.

‘Machete Kills Again… in Space’ trailer is an X-rated sci-fi masterpiece

For anyone who saw Machete Kills last month , the trailer for Danny Trejo’s inexplicable yet appropriately violent journey through space and time won’t be anything new. For everyone else, this is genius in action.

Machete Kills… in Space appears to be exactly the kind of pulpy, mindless fun the previous two Robert Rodriguez films were. Here, Trejo wields a light-machete to cut down his enemies (including a mechanized Justin Bieber) while his comrades Michelle Rodriguez, Alexa Vega, and Lady Gaga kick ass, fire ray guns, and mug for the camera. Leonardo DiCaprio might or might not be along for the ride, but no one seems particularly sure. In the end, you don’t watch this because it makes even a lick of sense, but because it’s too good…
