Archicine: Illustrations of Famous Architecture in Film By Federico Babina
Sometimes a great movie has more than memorable characters; sometimes the architecture stands out as well. The Lone Ranger had neither. But the lone artist here, Federico Babina, has shrewdly left Tonto & Co. out of the mix with his new series, ARCHICINE, showcasing classic works of architecture that were instrumental in the films they featured.
Big fans will recognize the structures from The Big Lebowski, Star Wars, Rear Window, and perhaps North By Northwest with what looks like an illustrated Cary Grant on the run. But the real cinephiles will savor the art for L.A. Confidential, Moonrise Kingdom, The Fountainhead, The Million Dollar Hotel, Zabriskie Point, A Single Man, The Party, The Man Without a Past, Dogville, Body Double, The Incredibles, and Mon Oncle.
