Dazzling and Strange: Thom Yorke Ponders Love and Angst on Anima

Eric Gasa

XL Recordings

Over 20 years since the release of the seminal album, OK Computer, Radiohead singer, Thom Yorke still maintains his creative peak. In tandem with his newest solo record, Anima, the singer has partnered with director, Paul Thomas Anderson to produce a short film to accompany the record. The result is a sleek, modern, and quintessentially Thom Yorke experience, starring the musician in his own dystopian world of angst and anxiety.

Available exclusively on Netflix, the film, also titled Anima gives viewers a glimpse into Yorke’s mind and showcases three songs from the record. The feature has no dialogue and is almost reminiscent of a silent film.

The first shots start in the grey-washed interiors of a subway. Passengers nod in and out of a trance-like sleep, and we see Yorke doing the same thing. It’s a surrealist scene as one by one the passengers awaken to life. Yorke stirs awake and makes eye contact with his muse across the car, played by his real-life partner, Dajana Rocione.

The ensemble exits the train and begin a stylish and artistic dance performance. Yorke’s ghoulish falsetto fits perfectly in place with the scene; dreamlike and mystifying. Human forms rive and abstract into odd shapes around Yorke as he searches for the girl he lost on the train.

First Look At Geralt And Cast Of Netflix’s “The Witcher”

By Creative Media Times 

Netflix

As Netflix gears up for the release of its highly anticipated fantasy drama TV series, “The Witcher,” the streaming service has now release a series of cool new images showing its characters.

Here we got a first look at a badass Geralt of Rivia, played by Henry Cavill, Yennefer, played by Anya Cholatra, and Ciri played by Freya Allan.

Also released is the series’ first poster and the first look at the series logo.”The Worst Monsters Are The Ones We Create,” it says.

“The Witcher” is based on a book series by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski.

Geralt is the titular Witcher in the short stories, novels and video games which takes place in medieval fantasy setting. He is one of the last witchers, a trained monster slayer for hire to slay deadly monstrous beasts.

Cavill recently played a CIA assassin in this summer’s blockbuster hit Mission: Impossible – Fallout starting Tom Cruise. He also portrayed Superman in WB/DC Comics’, Batman v Superman and Justice League.

“The Witcher” is expected to premiere this year on Netflix.

Here’s the series’ synopsis from Netflix:
“Based on the best-selling fantasy series of books, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.”

New Action-Packed “Charlie’s Angels” Trailer Revealed

By Creative Media Times

Sony Pictures Releasing

The trailer for Elizabeth Banks’s upcoming action comedy Charlie’s Angels was just released, featuring Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska in roles of savvy crime-fighting trio.

There’s plenty of glam and action in the trailer, and lots of outfits. Along with the fast paced action, we see our leads in various disguises and costume changes.

“We’re gonna need some wigs, toys, clothes,” says Banks.

Naomi Scott is certainly riding high this year with the recent, somewhat unexpected success of “Aladdin” this summer.

Banks wrote, produced and directed the film. Along with Djimon Hounsou and Patrick Stewart, she is also one of the multiple mentors of the women named “Bosley”.

A reboot of the 1970s TV series, as well as the 2000 and 2003 feature movie versions, the film features songs by Ariana Grande, Lana Del Rey and Miley Cyrus. Sam laflin, Noah Centineo and Luis Gerardo Méndez also co-star.
