88. Lolita

At school, I only have two movies with me: Lolita and Spirited Away
While this was actually unintentional, it makes lol because it is SO accurate.

Lolita might be my favorite movie ever. And this is *NOT* the 1962 Stanley Kubrick version, but the 1997 Adrian Lyne one...!!!! I re-watched it again tonight and took 350 screenshots (thank you, VLC!). Cutting it down to the mere 33 here was a traumatic experience. If you have not seen this movie, watch it ASAP! The colors, the acting, the outfits, the braids, the score, the road trip, the bobby pin, the backlighting. Even the retainer is genius. Dominique Swain is incredible as Lolita--every detail she brings is so playful and inventive. I think she is the reason I love it so much.

87. Crystalised

A short video I made last year...
Warning though, the quality is already low to begin with, and then somehow from iMovie to Vimeo it gets even WORSE! ughz. So anyway, if you can bear the quality, then enjoy!
