We Were Not Amused By This Dark Dancerwoman

Catherine Deneuve cares less about makenice the longer she's around (and I do wish her a long, happy, healthy, sexy, regal life, understand). Here's an excerpt from Close Up And Personal about the production of Lars von Trier's Dancer In The Dark:

Read-through with Bj–rk, who arrives wrapped up warm, in striped tights and clogs, a bit wild and shy, but fairly relaxed. Lars seems more or less happy. Nothing on the costumes, and me sick with flu. No reason to stay, so I leave, a little anxious, unsure of the solidity of all this. Have I already signed?

Return to Copenhagen to rehearse the musical scene in the factory. Things are pretty disordered. It'll take me a while to realise this is Lars's way of doing things. The project is unwieldy; preparations are running late, and he has this enormous need to discover and retain "freshness" for the shoot.

Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
