Seen & Heard: Charlotte Gainsbourg
Charlotte Gainsbourg- Time of the Assassins from Charlotte Gainsbourg on Vimeo.
New video for Charlotte Gainsbourg's "Time of the Assassins". Whatever she does, she should definitely not drive up to that cabin with her husband. Stay out of the woods, Charlotte, stay out of Satan's Church. Speaking of Lars Von Trier...for those who don't know, the slightly manic director's next film, Melancholia, is science fiction. Granted, it'll probably be science fiction the way Tarkovsky is science fiction, but in the wake of Antichrist I am way more excited than I should be. Melancholia is supposedly about the end of the world, which is always fun, moreso when the apocalypse involves Gainsbourg's return alongside a lineup that includes John Hurt, the always tricky Charlotte Rampling, Kirsten Dunst, Kiefer Sutherland, Stellan Skarsgård, Udo Kier, and True Blood's nordic vamp Alexander Skarsgård. Strange casting, stranger times. Pretentious film geek multiple exclamation points.
