My colleague at MDC , Betty Sze uploaded a post on OTM titled, "Change Begins Today" which contrasted the inaugration of Barack Obama as the President Of The United States with the lack of color on the Milan FW 09 men's runways (as per a Guy Trebay article in the NY Times). The following day I was at a shoot for frillr.com with an unsigned black male model. The subject of why there has been no black male super-star since Tyson Beckford came up. I was asked why did I think that was . I found myself stumped. Not because I didn't have a point of view on the subject but more truthfully, because I had several complicated and conflicting ideas about the issue. A whole frenzy of questions came to mind.

TI loves 70's sci-fi which is why at Sundance I found myself hugely attracted to Duncan Jones' flick "Moon" starring Sam Rockwell. As Mr Jones himself stated "Think "some sci-fi classic from the 70s that somehow was over-looked and has only now been unearthed." As a meditation on loneliness and isolation, the level of thinking invested by Mr Duncan into his story and characters reveals a philosophical sophistication unusual in commercial cinema. I think this film is going to be huge when it goes to general release . I suppose I should say Duncan Jones is the son of rock icon David Bowie. Which amplifies the irony of the very "Space Oddity" nature of the film's concept. "Moon" is Mr Jones' directorial debut. Cut to the jump for the Sundance catalog description of the film.
