According to the Hollywood Reporter, filmmaker Wayne Wang (The Joy Luck Club, but more importantly DIM SUM and SMOKE) will debut his new film The Princess of Nebraska for free on YouTube on Oct. 17th. The film will appear in YouTube’s Screening Room, the section of the site devoted to independent and art house video fare.
Princess is the companion film to another new film of Wang’s titled A Thousand Years of Good Prayers, which will be released theatrically on Sept. 19th. Princess is the story of a Chinese student in Nebraska who travels to San Francisco to get an abortion, with the main character trying to find her identity through various forms of new media.

fittingly. rourke's triumph in venice is emblematic of this year.
he may be old, overweight and out of date, but he still has the old magic.
and it is never too late to start again.
i feel MOVED already.

well. i decided to clean my computer out and uncovered a frankly mystifying and phenomenally vast collection of very random stuff, from old photos to templates of times gone past. stumbling into these three pastiches seems particularly pertinent. since the artist is with me now and well she had a spectacular time doing them and i getting them sent to me.
