The Skepis was great last year in the face of the announcement of a cinema film about James Dean. That twilight superstar and Teenieschwarm Robert Pattinson would play with it, the thing for many did not necessarily better – despite the reassuring fact that plays not James Dean. Because fine new life to bring to a myth on the canvas, rarely. How should that work then if this myth is for 60 years as the epitome of male coolness? Also Director Anton Corbijn (‘Control’, “A wanted you”) fails so much was betrayed. Still, the James Dean movie “Life” is a piece of what you can find film that is 50s fans and admirers of James Dean should not – miss on DVD or streaming.
The Story Behind The James Dean Movie “Life” – Dennis Stock And James Dean
Was different as it represents “Life”, photographer Dennis Stock not particularly excited, when he met James Dean the first time at a party. That changed at a preview of “East of Eden”, the movie that ushered in the short as well as impressive Hollywood career of Deans with a bang. Impressed by the screen presence of the newcomers stock sensed his chance and persuaded the actor to a photo series about his origins. That in itself was highly unusual in the 50s. Usually, actor is namely gave every effort to keep secret their past as “vulgar” mortals, especially if is they had played on a farm in Fairmount, Indiana, between pigs and cattle. Stocks employers, the magazine “Life” expectations were accordingly behaviour – as well as the budget, which was made for his essay available stock.
But in reality, the photographer was probably just as doggedly as in the film – and he should be right.Several days long accompanied Stock Dean through Manhattan and then to his native Indiana and shot these photos of the stars, which are today already cult: James Dean Bongo playing with friends, signing autographs in his old high school and the pig trough on his uncle’s farm. One of them, running James Dean in the rain with the high collar about the time square, has become one of the most famous images of the 20th century. Even in an open coffin, lay Dean for the camera – and therefore quite irritated the photographer.
This stock was what did manage a few contemporaries. He befriended the equally uncertain how unpredictable Dean, a friendship that almost the life cost him. From an inspiration out, refused to stock, when Dean offered a ride with his new Porsche to take him – and remained so alive.
You Can’t Play James Dean
This fact is revealed early in ‘Life’. You can neither Corbijn nor Dane deHaan (James Dean) an accusation make, not even Robert Pattinson, the transformation of the vampire teen into a dogged photographer manage quite well. Actually, the James Dean movie “Life” is anything but a bad movie if you are willing to bypass a few lengths. Only James Dean, as he looks ahead to the audience during the credits of the original photos, casual that butt in the corners of the mouth and with that inimitable mix of coolness and melancholy – the shows somehow not on the film. Dane deHaan had so something probably anticipated when he turned down the role initially five times before he finally said.
You must be willing to make some concessions. For this ‘Life’ is a musical treat for jazz fans and full of impressive high-gloss images – a bit much gloss maybe. And somehow, it’s also very comforting, that James Dean remains unkopierbar. So we finally want to have it.
