As we know, we’re constantly mesmerized by Tilda Swinton here. Her style, her life, everything around her stirs controversy. Everything but her acting. She may be many things, but Tilda Swinton is a perfect professional.
And because we’re so drawn to anything she does/says, here’s a bit of bonus from AnOther’s Jefferson Hack (a brief and dynamic interview with Tilda Swinton, conducted by the editor of AnOther and Dazed and Confused which can be read en entier here): (right after the jump you’ll find Tilda Swinton in a film signed by Glen Luchford for Dazed and Confused)
“What makes you laugh?:My children’s plays – invariably – especially the ones involving beards.
What do you consider to be the greatest invention?:Fireworks.
Recommend a book or poem that has changed your perspective on life : Great Expectations.”
Getting back to Dazed and Confused and their current feature on Tilda Swinton. Not only those breathtaking images of her still haunt my aesthetics, behold there’s a short film with Tilda directed by Glen Luchford. Tilda’s voice and Rainer Maria Rilke’s dramatic writing (and so much more) make a makeup scene look like an academic theater class.
