On Set: A Visual Feast

October 19, 2015
One of Miles Redd’s biggest pleasures? Devouring the cinematic work of gifted auteurs. It takes one to know one.
Read about some of Redd’s favorite directors & flicks below.

To Catch a Thief (1955)Directed by Alfred HitchcockShown: Grace Kelly

ALFRED HITCHCOCK
“What a master of style!  Rear Window, Vertigo, Rope, To Catch a Thief, they all have amazing sets.
My favorite is Rebecca, for the boat house—all chintz, Chinese and chinchilla.”

 Marie Antoinette (2006)Directed by Sofia CoppolaShown center: Kirsten Dunst

MARIE ANTOINETTE
“Often panned, but I find it visionary. Sofia Coppola captures the highs and lows of a life dictated by dress and ornamentation.
It’s a delicious pale-pink confection.”

WES ANDERSON
“His films are pure life-affirming joy. Every time I watch The Grand Budapest Hotel, I see something new.”

GONE WITH THE WIND
“I first saw this with my grandmother, and I made her sit through it twice in one day. One of the most beautifully lit films of all time.”

PURPLE NOON
“The original film adaptation of The Talented Mr. Ripley. It’s chillingly wicked, and stars Alain Delon at the height of his beauty in chic 1960s Paris.”
