After the jump I’ve got the first trailer from Visage, from acclaimed guy-I-hadn’t-heard-of-until-today Tsai Ming-liang. It stars Laetitia Casta, who… let’s just say I’m quite familiar with her from her days as a Victoria Secret model. Anyway, it’s hard to tell what the movie’s about, but gosh, it sure looks meaningful. Says CHUD:
This thing is gorgeous [that's what she said. -Ed.]. Right here is the spot [ditto] where I’m supposed to tell you what the movie is about, but I honestly don’t know. I don’t care. I see the names: Tsai with constant star Lee Kang-sheng, Jeanne Moreau, Laetitia Casta, Fanny Ardant, Mathieu Almaric and more, then I see these images, and I’m sold. The playful mixture of fashion and pop culture, musical numbers and serene, meditative photography that reached a weird plateau in The Wayward Cloud (a funny, difficult and divisive movie) may have been developed further for this take on filmmaking and the Salome myth.
Whoa, what happened? I blacked out for a second and when I came to I was playing the bongos. Aw crap, Terrence Howard just showed up, I hate it when this happens.
