OK – I promise this is the only time I will include a raster graphic in Icon of the Day. But the reason is that I want to explain my next series in terms of the subject matter.
This is my doggie. She will be the subject of each icon for as long as I do the series. I want you to see HER first. In that interest, starting with Photographic Realism:
This is a weird. culty, erotic vampire thriller, in that slightly sleazy eurotrash tradition.
I am not sure if my distaste for romances is because I am so much NOT a romantic person, or because I very much AM a romantic person but think most romantic movies are just lame and insipid.
This one, however, is really gorgeous. It was remade as another meh bleh yeah I told you I don’t like romances with Meg Ryan and Nicholas Cage. Hey, I just realized, I have seen them both on separate movie sets. I was in The Doors and was walking around the Upper West Side in the spring of 2000, when they were spraying a bunch of fake snow in front of a ritzy apartment building. Nicholas Cage was getting shoved out by a doorman for The Family Man.
But I digress. Check out Wings of Desire.
