We’ve wanted to post about this movie for ages now (maybe even before we actually started pop.see.cul). But anyway, better late than never right? A Swedish Love Story, filmed in 1970, became sort of an underground cult hit because of its straight-forward storytelling and honest imagery. The film is about two Swedish teens named Annika and Pär who fall in love, both too shy to communicate their feelings for each other. If you haven’t watched this movie yet, please do! ( although it’s a bit difficult to find it!). And the styling! The way they are dressed, it’s absolutely amaaaazing!
You still have a day left lovers!

Drug addiction, mental disorders, we ‘ve seen it all. But how do you show sex addiction in movies without making it look cheesy? That’s the tricky part and McQueen should be applauded for achieving this. We get in into Brandon’s world. We catch a glimpse of his soul through music; a small procession of LPs dresses a plain living room unit where Glenn Gloud variations pour from a turntable, cocooning Brandon in a thin film of precious tranquility. It’s these same abstract notes that accompany Shame‘s most elegant crafted sequence – a single tracking shot of Brandon jogging at night that is both audacious and hypnotic in its execution.
We meet Brandon somewhere in the middle of his journey and we leave him without a clear sense of its end.
McQueen has made a bold and accomplished film but, aside from a fearless lead performance, Shame’s price assets, like those call girls Brandon solicits, are superficial. It’s not our favorite movie. Maybe the trailer was SO good that our expectations were VERY high. But Michael Fassbender is at his most forceful, the sound on the background works perfectly good and the filming plus choice of colors are very well done.

Finally a documentary about Wayne White :
Beauty Is Embarrassing
Here is another POP.ASKS.YOU interview. We’ve come across Grace’s blog a few days ago and were really impressed with her amazing, dreamy drawings.
pop.see.cul : Can you briefly describe yourself?
Grace Hamilton : Hi! I’m Grace Hamilton, age 21. I live in Hertfordshire near some beautiful countryside. I spend half of my time as a Barista in a coffee shop and the other half drawing pretty girls with sad faces or making collages with old photographs and love letters.
pop.see.cul : When did you start drawing?
Grace Hamilton : As long as I can remember I’ve loved drawing. When I haven’t created anything in a while I get really uneasy like it’s a physical need or I have to work out something in my head. A few years ago after I left college I was feeling lost, I found the experience of art education restricted me. So I created my blog and shop so I wouldn’t lose my love of art.
pop.see.cul : From the work you’ve done so far which one would you say you like the best? And Why?
Grace Hamilton : I’m really proud of the work I created for Audrey Grace Boutique. The opportunity to illustrate two of the most beautiful women (Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly) was a real turning point for my art. My favourite pieces are the Marie Antoinette collages I made for the Boutique. Everything seemed to come together and relate to the stages that Marie goes through in the film by Sofia Coppola.
pop.see.cul : What are your inspirations?
Grace Hamilton : What I look for in everything I draw is a story. Mostly a love story, good or bad – so I look everywhere to find that feeling I want to achieve. Be it Fairytales, Movies, old Hollywood Icons or visits to Stately homes. I read a lot of novels and collect vintage photographs. Every wall of my room is covered in prints by artists like Waterhouse or fashion photography from different decades. Most importantly I think music is my biggest inspiration. I listen to Damien Rice, Iron and Wine, Ray LaMontagne, Band of Horses, Counting Crows, Bon Iver and The Decemberists.
pop.see.cul : What are your plans for the future? What is your dream?
Grace Hamilton : It’s my dream to one day illustrate books, and to just keep progressing and growing more confident in my work. I’d love to make a career out of something creative; I just haven’t found the right path yet. Its’ a lot to ask but I would like to create art that lasts or becomes precious to someone because of how it makes them feel, or what it reminds them of in life.
pop.see.cul : How would you describe your style in general?
Grace Hamilton : All of my illustration work is watercolour, ink and pencil. It’s incredibly feminine and I hope has a sense of romance and loss. My work is always about a time gone by and trying to retain that sense of beauty, delicacy and style that we perceive the past has.
pop.see.cul : Can people buy your work? and from where?
Grace Hamilton : I have an etsy shop here that I will be updating very soon.

Our six favourite movies of 2011 and their colors.
Little White Lies, Issue 39.
Emerging from the detritus of porn cuttings and dark ruminations, the new issue of LWLies is dedicated to Steve McQueen’s icy sex-addiction drama Shame, starring the sensational Michael Fassbender.
Cornered in his hotel room during the Toronto Film Festival, the ever-provocative Steve McQueen ruminates on free will, desire and his upcoming film Shame.The director’s sophomore feature takes an unflinching look at the destructive nature of sex addiction, following Michael Fassbender’s corporate drone Brandon through a solitary routine of meaningless sexual encounters.
‘The collide between morality and addiction, where one ends and the other begins.’
We CAN’T wait to watch it.
