For Visual Parallels, Sati chooses two movies (or occasionally, a TV show) and compares them with a series of still shots from each. Previous Visual Parallels include the similarly themed Rosemary’s Baby and Repulsion, or films as varied as Mulholland Dr. and Young Adult. Know what they all have in common? They are universally remarkable. (Look at all of them here.)
Today’s Visual Parallels is especially rewarding, as Sati has compared Sofia Coppola’s masterful film, Somewhere, with my own short film, Earrings. The result left me speechless.
Earrings was released nearly one year ago, and Sati’s post is a uniquely gratifying look back. Many thanks to Sati for taking the time to put this together, I can’t imagine how difficult these post must be.
