I’ve always searched for inspiration in movies. Those with styling and cinematography that adds that extra dimention that makes you almost want to live in the movie. As a child i’d dress up as my favorite characters. Then later on as an adult i’d collect clippings and make folders full of screencaps on my computer and have the pictures inspire me in various ways.
Klute is a movie that i’ve recently watched and that really made an impression on me. I recently read Jane Fonda’s biography on my beach holiday on the Dominican Republic and it made me quite interessted in the movies she’s made, especially those in the 60s/70s. I only knew Barbarella, which is amazing when it comes to style, look and feel.. this one is certainly less bizar and abstract, but it’s mysterious atmosphere, simplicity of the colors (a typical 70s mix of various shades of brown) and the reminence of post-hippie fashions really make it visually exciting even if not everything is my personal style..it’s exciting because it’s just right.
