I am now determined to […]
Yesterday morning Les Inrocks shared the latest piece by French director Michel Gondry, a sweded version of Taxi Driver. The art of Sweding a movie has been -officially- invented with Be Kind, Rewinds, Gondry’s 2008 feature that tells the story of two friends working in a video store and who decide to reenact all the movies […]

I have never heard a concept that many times during casual conversations, up to a point that I swore I would unfollow any person on my Facebook putting ‘procrastinating’ as a falsely dramatic status update (I calmed down).
