Inception

In honor of the release of Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar this week, I’ve been working on a musical project for the past few months: Attempting to perform the final music track from Inception (“Time” by Hans Zimmer) using a single, looping cello. I’ve been re-discovering my love for the cello recently, and by incorporating an electric pickup and a looping pedal, I have tried to create large-scale sounds using repeating chords on a single instrument.

Hit the jump to see a music video of “Time” performed using a single cello.

Interstellar daughter

Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar is one of the most ambitious, visually spectacular films I’ve sen this year. But it’s also a film with some really deep problems. In many ways, it highlights Nolan’s best and worst tendencies: his penchant for intricate, convoluted stories, his tendency to elide character work to move the plot along, and his knack for breathtaking visuals.

Hit the jump for my full video review of Interstellar. I discuss basic plot details about the film, but nothing I would consider spoilers. That being said, consider yourself warned.

I saw Birdman Wednesday night at an advanced screening in downtown Seattle. I don’t think my audience knew what to make of it. It definitely suffers from many of the issues that Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu’s films typically fall prey to: overwrought dialogue; characters who serve as symbols or ideas nothing more; and a bit too much fixation on misery and regret.

Still, I loved Birdman and can’t stop thinking about it. Hit the jump for my video review, and share your thoughts on the film in the comments below.
