Sheila writes: John Lennon kept a sketchbook throughout his life, filled with little drawings and doodles, and in 1986 Yoko Ono commissioned Oscar-winning animator John Canemaker to make them into a short film. The short film, "The John Lennon Sketchbook" hit Youtube officially on May 15 of this year. The images are accompanied by audio recordings of John and Yoko talking about their relationship, bantering and joking. It's lovely. You can watch the film below.
Sheila writes: Recently, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Patti Smith sat down and interviewed director David Lynch for the BBC. The result is a fascinating and atypical interview, revealing and evocative, giving the sense of two people sharing an experience, rather than a strict Q and A format. It makes me want to see more. The two discuss "Twin Peaks," "Blue Velvet," and other topics. You can watch the interview here.
"The Wes Anderson Collection" video essay series continues with "The Darjeeling Limited," the director's comedy about brotherhood, death, and the limits of control.
