After Bond and Indy, I’ve started a new weekly film series (something to watch on Sunday nights) and I’ve decided to re-watch Hitchcock (not all, but my favorite movies of his). I’m a big fan of his films, and I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve watched most of them, so perfect time for a revisit. I kicked it off last night with Vertigo, and still found it to be very entertaining. Luckily, I didn’t remember the twist, so it was fun to see how exactly the film heads towards its ending — and...

He also makes a lot of cool creations involving images of mice and ants. • Peter Kogler site (via Colossal)
