Within our lifetimes, we’ve marveled as biologists have managed to look at ever smaller and smaller things. And astronomers have looked further and further into the dark night sky, back in time and out in space. But maybe the most mysterious of all is neither the small nor the large: it’s us, up close. Could we even recognize ourselves, and if we did, would we know ourselves? What would we say to ourselves? What would we learn from ourselves? What would we really like to see if we could stand outside ourselves and look at us?
I watched Another Earth the other day and I fell in love with it. It was fabulously shot and fantastically written. Plus I cried… a lot. It also has ignited an obsession with Brit Marling, too. If you havent seen it yet I recomend you get on it.
In the summer of 2005, 22-year-old Brit Marling sat down at her computer to write an email to Goldman Sachs. The Georgetown grad had just been offered a full-time job by the prestigious investment bank, where she’d interned the previous summer. “Thanks, but no thanks,” she typed. “I’m going to be an artist. Brit.”
Sound of My Voice. Two idealistic journalists join a cult to expose it from the inside. Hijinks ensue. This one was alright, but it makes me curious to see The East, as this seems to be something of a first draft or starter’s kit for the ideas developed in that bigger feature. Brit Marling also does good work in Another Earth and the very excellent Arbitrage.
I don’t normally give into trends but I think I’m give in and start doing underrated actresses for #wcw. Starting off with Brit Marling. She’s only been in a handful of movies since she started acting in 2011 in Another Earth. She’s also had a small role on Community, but that’s about it. #britmarling #anotherearth
