I just added this lovely shoot.
I got back from the hospital a few hours ago I can’t tell you how weird it is writing this with my laptop, the screen feels huge after 8 days of accessing online world though a smart phone. That device is just fabulous, but computer is always a computer
Anyway, I’m home. Don’t expect any updates anywhere until propably after the weekend at the earliest, and then still I’ll be updating only as long as I feel I’m not overexerting myself. I’m still very much recovering and got a month of sick leave for now, blood tests etc. once a week until I hear otherwise. And I just want to catch my breath for a few days and catch up on everything I’ve missed
I’m still in the hospital, and don’t know when I’ll be released.
I can now confirm, that the big thing was/is my liver accompanied by a few other smaller things. Seems I’ve started recovering now though because my liver vitals improved a lot over the weekend.
There are still some liver related tests and biopsy results pending, and I guess they want to wait for those because the usual things that they look for first came up all clear, and now checking for other possible causes. So there’s no diagnosis yet.
So, heading to right direction at the moment but not out of the woods yet.
Still in the hospital. Gonna be the whole weekend; Monday next time the situstion appraisal.
All sites are on hiatus until further notice.
I’m in the hospital, been here since yesterday morning – first at the ER then ward. Don’t know when I can go back home, they need to find out what caused the acute bad diarrhea that induced dehydration (so bad I was falling down due to dizzyness) – antibiotic or acute worsening of Crohn’s Disease.
They also performed the liver scan test thingy that my gastroentorolist has queed me up for due to abnormal bilirubin results, and that came back all clear. Also, my skin is tinted yellow jaundice I think is the word. Didn’t see it myself at all at home, but here under neutral lights yes. Azamun might be the culprit for all this, they say but are still investigating.
Yorgos Lanthimos is one of those filmmakers whose reputation proceeds any new movie he makes, but when you first gain worldwide attention by making something as shocking as 2009’s Dogtooth, that’s bound to be the case. It’s not just the content of Dogtooth that made it so memorable to those who watched it though, it was the way in which Lanthimos was able to introduce his viewers to a world that was intensely jarring and disorienting, all while keeping his eye on the human heart of his story and giving the audience just enough of an emotional anchor to hold on to so that the film didn’t degenerate into substanceless shock or absurdity. The same was also true, though probably to a lesser extent, with his 2011 film Alps.
Now that he’s getting ready to make his first English-language film with his first cast of familiar Hollywood actors, however, it’s going to be interesting to see what, if anything, changes about his approach to storytelling. He once again wrote the script for his new film, The Lobster, with his regular collaborator, Efthymis Filippou, so one might think that there wouldn’t be too much of a stylistic shift between it and his past work, but, on the other hand, now that there’s a report that Lanthimos’ new film will be starring names as mainstream as Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz, is it possible that he could be utilizing their talents to make something as weird and niche as his last few movies?
If the plot synopsis for The Lobster is to be believed, then it seems like that’s absolutely going to be the case.
Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz will take the lead roles in science-fiction romance The Lobster from Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos, Variety reports.
Described as an unconventional love story, Lanthimos’s sixth feature film is set in a troubled future where finding a partner is a matter of life and death. Farrell and Weisz join Ben Whishaw, Léa Seydoux and Olivia Colman.
Lanthimos, an Oscar nominee in the best foreign language film category for his 2009 drama Dogtooth, said, “I’m very grateful to have the opportunity to work with such great actors. Their contribution to our film will enrich and expand the world we are trying to create and explore. Furthermore our team of old and new collaborators makes me very confident and excited to start making this film.”
Lanthimos’s most recent feature, 2011′s Alps, premiered in competition at the Venice film festival. The Lobster, which the director has co-written with regular collaborator Efthymis Filippou, will be the 40-year-old director’s first film in the English language. He aims to start shooting on 24 March in Ireland.
Still nothing new in Rachelworld, but I just added over 700 caps taken from HD version of 2006 ‘The Fountain’.
Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz have proved box-office dynamite on Broadway. Betrayal, which had its final performances last Saturday, grossed a total of $17.5 million (£10.7m) in only 14 weeks.
The husband and wife pairing starred alongside Rafe Spall in Harold Pinter’s classic 1978 drama, which charts the evolution of an adulterous triangle in reverse chronological order. The production opened in October to mixed reviews: some all-out raves, some disappointed.
