up, up, and away #14: “afterglow”

 

the end of the “restraints” sequence, something like christ’s burial before the ascent to heaven. but in this story, the ascent to heaven only happens in fantasy (the next chapter), and the ultimate awakening at the end of the path is to life in the grave, aka depression.

the scene comes from the opening of sunset boulevard, offering the perfect visual of death and suspension, and the howling indifference of the outside world.

up, up, and away #12: “love song”

 

this is the first part in the “restraints” sequence. after showing more and more psychotic behavior, our hero is strapped to a table for a good night’s sleep…

the result is a slow implosion, made visual by the beautiful last section of coppola’s the conversation and the end of ‘fall’ in spring, summer, fall, winter… and spring.
