Long before Bella mooned over Edward, Kathryn Bigelow made the definitive teen-vampire romance — though it could be argued that her justly revered and muchimitated second feature may be more of a western at heart. Consider the abundance of sun-scorched scenery and the aw-shucks way that Adrian Pasdar’s young cowboy falls for Jenny Wright’s sweet-seeming damsel, prior to discovering that she travels in some seriously bad company: a savage gang of bloodsucking outlaws that rides the range in a blacked-out RV, slaking their thirst on unwary cowpokes and raining down death and destruction upon anyone who happens to be in the wrong road house at the wrong time. Bigelow stages some spectacularly vicious set pieces, but also brings a startling tenderness and sexiness to the romance at the core of all the carnage.

Jean-Michel Basquiat Look At Me!

The exhibition “Look At Me! Portraits and Other Fictions from the ”la Caixa” Contemporary Art Collection” examined portraiture, one of the oldest artistic genres, through a significant number of works of our times. Paintings, photographs, sculptures and videos shaped a labyrinth of gazes that invite spectators to reflect themselves in the social mirror of portraits.
