From her 2010 book, I Remember Nothing
A few interesting points about this film, it’s directed by a chick named Maïwenn, she thinks just the one word is enough now, good for her. She acts in the film too, I think she’s the photographer, she also played the enthusiastic blue diva chick in Luc Besson’s The Fifth Element.
Is there a connection between the content of this film and the fact that she had a kid to a 35 year old Luc Besson when she was 16? Apparently he met her when she was 12 and was the inspiration for Leon. I’d like to know more about the story but can’t seem to find much online.
How To Sell Drugs
Ever wonder how to sell $100,000 worth of drugs in a week?

How awesome does Franju’s Nuits Rouges look!? Check the tunes too.. Gotta track this down
Shadowman, a thief whose head is covered by a red mask, and his cat-suited assistant, try to find the fabled treasure of the ancient Knight Templars from a surviving sect in Paris.
I’ve been loving this band Death for a little while now, I never knew much about them but I was surprised to learn that not only do they have an upcoming documentary, they’re still playing and they’re rad!
A Band Called Death
Synopsis: Equal parts electrifying rockumentary and inspiring family chronicle, this documentary portrays the captivating and little known story of the Hackney brothers and their band Death, the best punk band the world almost never heard. World premiering at the 2012 LA Film Fest June 14-24.
