ransacking shanghai

i thought stealing from the rich to give to the poor was reserved for the new robin hood movie. not so. director david lynch, someone whose films i have not seen) made a short advertising film for the house of dior. actress marion cotillard is as stunning as the mini movie is silly. when things literally get blurry i liked it enough to forget that a handbag is just a handbag. it is not that i am so smart, it is just so obvious. you can see it for yourselves on the internet.

a handbag, is just a handbag. sums it up! the colossal icons: orson, rita, and a silly mini movie.
