Não conhecia o trabalho da ilustradora Anne Benjamin. Fui apresentado graças a essa pérola aqui em cima, produzida para uma projeção especial do filme no Logan Theatre em Chicago no final de janeiro. O cartaz está exposto e tem cópias a venda na Galerie F, também de Chicago.
Falando na Little White Lies, a edição dedicada a Blue Jasmine vem com quatro páginas compondo o painel aí em cima, com várias referências a filmes do Woody Allen. Só clicar na imagem pra ver ampliada. No papel não dá pra ter noção do tamanho real da obra da artista Ruby Taylor, mas saca esse vídeo publicado no canal da revista no Youtube pra você entender as verdadeiras dimensões da ilustração:
A capa do número 49 da revista de cinema mais bonita do mundo é do novo filme do Woody Allen, com o rostão da Cate Blanchett ilustrado. Pela internet, não tá tão ousada quanto as das últimas edições, mas a Little White Lies faz muito mais sentido no papel do que online. Quando estiver com ela em mãos eu volto a comentar. Blue Jasmine terá algumas sessões no Festival do Rio. Segue o trailer da produção:

O The Telegraph fez uma lista com as 30 melhores falas do Woody Allen. Segue a lista completa, qual a sua preferida?
2- ‘Sex without love is a meaningless experience, but as far as meaningless experiences go, it’s pretty damn good.’
3-‘What if everything is an illusion and nothing exists? In that case, I definitely overpaid for my carpet.’
4-‘My one regret in life is that I am not someone else.’
5-‘My brain: It`s my second favorite organ.’
6- ‘Life is divided into the horrible and the miserable.’ What Woody Allen’s character Alvy Singer says to Annie Hall (1977) in an Oscar-winning screenplay Allen co-wrote with Marshall Brickman. In the full speech, Singer says: ‘Life is divided into the horrible and the miserable. That’s the two categories. The horrible are like, I don’t know, terminal cases, you know, and blind people, crippled. I don’t know how they get through life. It’s amazing to me. And the miserable is everyone else. So you should be thankful that you’re miserable, because that’s very lucky, to be miserable.’
7-‘Groucho Marx. Willie Mays. The second movement of the Jupiter Symphony. Louis Armstrong’s recording of Potato Head Blues. Swedish movies. Sentimental Education by Flaubert . Marlon Brando, Frank Sinatra. Those incredible apples and pears by Cézanne. The crabs at Sam Wo’s . . . and, uh, Tracy’s face.’ Woody Allen’s character Isaac Davis talking about what makes life worth living. In the picture from Manhattan, he is with teenager Mariel Hemingway, who was nominated for an Oscar for her protrayal of Tracy.
8- ‘There’s an old joke . . . two elderly women are at a Catskill mountain resort, and one of ‘em says “Boy, the food at this place is really terrible.” The other one says, “Yeah, I know; and such small portions.” Well, that’s essentially how I feel about life.’
9-‘I was thrown out of NYU [New York University] for cheating on my Metaphysics final. I looked within the soul of the boy sitting next to me.’
10-‘Money is better than poverty, if only for financial reasons.’
11-‘It’s not that I’m afraid to die, I just don’t want to be there when it happens.’
12-‘I had a great evening; it was like the Nuremberg Trials.’
13-‘There are worse things in life than death. Have you ever spent an evening with an insurance salesman?’
14-‘I had a terrible education. I attended a school for emotionally disturbed teachers.’
15-‘Not only is there no God, but try getting a plumber on weekends.’
16-‘The two biggest myths about me are that I`m an intellectual, because I wear these glasses, and that I`m an artist because my films lose money. Those two myths have been prevalent for many years.’
17-‘When I was kidnapped, my parents snapped into action. They rented out my room.’
18-‘I failed to make the chess team because of my height.’
19-‘I don’t want to achieve immortality through my work. I want to achieve it by not dying.’
20-‘The important thing, I think, is not to be bitter. You know, if it turns out that there is a God, I don’t think that he’s evil. I think that the worst you can say about him is that basically he’s an underachiever.’
21-‘Hey, don’t knock masturbation. It’s sex with someone I love.’
22-‘Sex alleviates tension. Love causes it.’
23-‘Life is full of misery, loneliness, and suffering – and it’s all over much too soon.’
24-‘I can’t listen to that much Wagner. I start getting the urge to conquer Poland.’
25-‘Does art imitate life, or does life imitate TV?’
26-‘Eighty per cent of success is showing up.’
27-‘I’ve been a great jazz fan my whole life. My favorite kind is New Orleans jazz. It’s one of America’s great art forms.’
28-‘If my films make one more person miserable, I’ll feel I have done my job.’
29-‘To you, I’m an atheist; to God, I’m the loyal opposition’.
30-‘Sex is the most fun you can have without laughing.’
