20,000 Days on Earth Investigates Nick Cave's Psyche & Boldly Redefines the Music Documentary Genre

Jul 18, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

There's a scene in 20,000 Days on Earth in which Nick Cave chauffeurs Kylie Minogue around Brighton in a black 1980s Jaguar XJ as she reflects back on having first met him. The front passenger seat is left open for us, the audience, as an invitation into a music documentary that's not quite real. In fact, everything you see has been constructed and the car you're in is more like a dream. Though the ambitious film is artistically pieced together and wrapped in fiction by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard—and co-written by Cave himself—it's actually the most beautifully honest reflection of art's transformative power you may ever see.

George R.R. Martin Offers to Slaughter Two Lucky Fans & Absolutely Kills It at Crowd Funding

Jun 6, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich  |  1 Comment

If there's one surefire way to get the entire JustLuxe editorial team to stop working and engage in conversation, it's to bring up Game of Thrones. We're obsessed and we're not ashamed — which is why we started immediately pooling our funds when we heard about George R.R. Martin's new crowdfunding campaign. Anyone familiar with the books or HBO show knows that the author has a soft spot for wolves, so it's no surprise that he's raising money for The Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary in his home state of New Mexico.

Jun 2, 2014  |   Contributor: Vicki Arkoff  |  1 Comment

Sweet-faced Colin Hanks stars in his toughest role yet in Fargo, the original FX adaptation of the Academy Award-winning feature film. Rather than attempt a remake, writer Noah Hawley reinvents Fargo with an all-new crime story featuring a new case and new characters — all entrenched in the trademark humor, murder and “Minnesota nice” that made the film an enduring classic. Oscar winner Billy Bob Thornton stars as Lorne Malvo, a rootless, manipulative man who meets and forever changes the life of small town insurance salesman Lester Nygaard, played by BAFTA winner Martin Freeman (SherlockThe Hobbit).

This Melting Metallic Sphere Will Mess With Your Mind

May 26, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

While there were a lot of cool things at the Frieze Art Fair in New York this year, Melter 3-D blew them out of the water. The animated sculpture by Takeshi Murata was debuted by Ratio 3 and is one of the coolest things we've seen in a long time. Technically a zoetrope, the metallic sphere gives off the illusion of melting liquid flowing across its surface. It looks so real that we have a hard time understanding how it could be a tangible art installation.
