If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then how does one explain the similarities between the Hezbollah flag and Saul Bass’ poster for the film Exodus.

Claude Lelouch’s 8-minute film, C’était un Rendezvous. was severely clusterlinked a few months ago. The favor is returned with a short documentary on its creation. [en français, malheureusement]

Flickr images, like the ones above, which are tagged “why they hate us” are randomly displayed on this similarly-named site. Guaranteed to waste at least an hour.

Just opened: Joseph Kosuth’s a labyrinth into which I can venture (a play of works by guests and foreigners) at Sean Kelly Gallery in New York. The installation is an amazing (sic) labyrinth of floor-to-ceiling text, embedded with many rare works from all phases of his career.

pnk’s comment is:

I attended a class taught by Scott Lerman earlier this year, and I would strongly recommend checking him out if you are in the Seattle area. Smart guy, very insightful, and refreshingly low on b.s., especially for a branding expert.

"Why They Hate Us"

"Why We Hate Ourselves"

About the making of C'├ętait un Rendez-vous, I won't translate all the documentary but I can point a few "important" revelations ;)
- The film was decided during the night. They had the idea, and basically Lelouch said "Let's do it tommorrow morning"
- Lelouch drove the car himself, it was the one we see in the making of. They were 3 people inside the car, as they had to operate the camera (with a remote)
- In the narrow passageway at the Louvre, as there was no visibility, his assistant (Which was Elie Chouraqui at that time!) was supposed to tell him if there was a problem by walkie-talkie. In fact Chouraqui couldn't have told them to stop because the walkie-talkie was broken...
- They reached a top speed of about 200km/h (140mph) once or twice
- They used the Mercedes because its suspensions are soft enough, so the image wouldn't shake too much
- They followed the same route with a Ferrari later to record the sound of the engine
