And more film stuff from the Grolsch Film Works blog.
Earlier this year, VICE Films and Grolsch Film Works teamed up with the directors Harmony Korine, Alexey Fedorchenko and Jan Kwiecinski to make a three-part film called The Fourth Dimension. Now, Grolsch Film Works have a new website where you can find out what they’ve been up to and read/watch interesting stuff about films. Every week we'll be plucking the highlights. This is that.
TEN FILMS TO LOOK OUT FOR IN 2013
Well whaddaya know? The world didn’t end. So I guess we can all chill out now and focus our thoughts on more pressing issues, like what the hell are we looking forward to seeing at the cinema this year?

ALMOST EVERY POP CULTURE REFERENCE FROM TARANTINO'S MOVIES
To the average Joe, chronicling the many occurences of Tarantino's trademark pop culture lingo in historical order, from Chaplin to Lohan, may seem (to put it bluntly) unnecessary.

Either way, this vid, created by the good people of College Humour, is an absolute blast to watch.
GASPAR NOE DIRECTS NICK CAVE AND THE BAD SEEDS VIDEO
Gaspar Noé, the director of Enter the Void and Irreversible, is better known for using nausea-inducing drone music in his films than conventional ‘song’ songs. But his latest gig in the director’s chair, for Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ “We Know Who U R” music video, shows he can fuse this kind of music with film just as ingeniously. The video is also, dare we say, evidence that Noé might be the best person to remake The Blair Witch Project (if anyone should ever bother).
WORDS WE'VE PROBABLY LEARNED FROM MOVIES
Everyone has either been the victim or the aggressor in regard to the following sentence: “Oh, you got that from [insert movie here].” As much as we’d like to deny it, several words common to our vocabulary were not known or regularly used until we saw them in a movie, whereupon the word was elevated by a certain charismatic delivery or a special metaphorical meaning. The following is a collection of those words, which is to say, don't act like you knew these words before you saw these movies.
