Great music from an even greater movie - 'All that I love' (Poland, 2009). Watched it with a few Polish friends in London (all of them from the seaside) and we all felt pretty nostalgic.

A few outtakes from the B magazine story about brutalism, which I shot back in March. The day I went to shoot Heygate Estate was probably one of the most beautiful days of the year. I arrived there at 5pm and stayed until around 7! Within those 2-3 hours, the sky seemed to have changed colour multiple times, going from grey to pink to violet to blue, with fluo lights accentuating all of the buildings's many textures and shades.

I might be one of the few people who are not entirely sold on Ryan Gosling's character in "Drive". Throughout the movie, I just couldn't figure out who is he: a good guy that is ultimately searching for love or a cold-blooded murderer? Perhaps, he embodies both qualities, which could easily prove that, yes, humans are complex creatures and we're actually not that easy to pigeonhole. Or perhaps I need to watch the movie again.
'Less Than Zero' - 'Drive's stylistic predecessor from 1987
However, what I feel does make the film special is the soundtrack and the visual language that Nicolas Winding Refn adopts - very nostalgic and 80s-reminiscent, with the exception for a few (very contemporary!) violent scenes. This song from Electric Youth, which plays at the final credits, is a particular gem.

The New York Times street and society photographer Bill Cunningham has been a fixture and regular chronicler of fashion weeks for decades. The new documentary follows the 80+ snapper at work as well as showing a more personal side to his story - the food he eats, the bike he rides every day. Even the tiny apartment where he used to live - one of the now-defunct artist studios in Carnegie Hall - gets a feature, bringing us on a journey to an extraordinary, time-warped world. What matters here are not so much the technical skills, but more the enthusiasm - something that both Cunningham and his fellow neighbour, portrait photographer Editta Sherman, have nourished for over 60 years.

I Love Hot Dogs is my new favourite blog! A must-see for any movie maniac (especially if like me, you prefer some oldies to the new Jennifer Aniston rom coms!), the blog asks creatives to list their top 10 films, chronicles some of the weirdest/most amazing moments from cinema's past, and is packed full of inspirational women such as vintage Drew Barrymore, Rita Hayworth and Claudia Cardinale. The latter usually come under the caption "HUBBA HUBBA", so easy to spot.
So if you find yourself looking for something to watch, I can't think of a better place for recommendations.
