 ‘Smoke’ — the story of the person who became the captive of surrealistic madness



By Allan R. Ellenberger


If you’re interested in something different, check out Smoke, a 2007 short film by Polish filmmaker, Grzegorz Cisiecki. Its seven-plus minutes unfold with no dialogue using images to tell an indefinable tale about a young man remembering—but remembering what, we are not sure.





Told in a surrealistic dream-like approach, the influence of David Lynch and Kubrick are evident throughout. Cisiecki’s moody and symbolic direction, enhanced by the exceptional cinematography of Dawid Rymar,  makes Smoke a must-see for any discerning film enthusiast. Looking forward to the future work of this writer-director.

A star for former Beatles drummer Ringo Starr has been added to the Hollywood Walk of Fame. At a ceremony outside the Capitol Records building on Monday night, Starr’s name was unveiled as the 2,401st star on the sidewalk attraction.


The Hollywood Walk of Fame also marked its 50th anniversary on Monday.


Those by Starr’s side for the unveiling included actress-wife Barbara Bach, musicians Jay Walsh and Ben Harper, producer Don Was, director David Lynch and actor Noah Wyle.


The Walk of Fame already includes individual stars for the drummer’s former Beatles bandmates John Lennon and George Harrison. The Beatles as a group received a star in 1998. (Austrailian Broadcasting Company)
