Waltz with Bashir

Thursday, March 26th, 2009

I just got back from seeing Waltz with Bashir and it kind of left me speechless. It’s the type of movie you go to see for the visual experience but you leave with a lot more.

An Ari Folman Film

————————————————-

I was really excited for this when I heard that Tomer Hanuka was going to be doing some of the art for the film. Hanuka’s style of illustration represents everything I love about comic book art.

Tomer also has a blog with his twin brother, Asaf, at Tropical Toxic.

Sweet Plantain

Saturday, March 21st, 2009

Sweet Plantain is a string quartet that plays with improvisational flare, combining their knowledge of classical music with jazz and latin genres. Heard of this via my viola teacher who is a friend of one of the violinists, Romulo Benavides.
