Remember Now and Lady Blue Shanghai

I absolutely love these two short films, which have produced quite a stir in the last week. Remember Now is Karl Lagerfeld's latest venture into Short Film and was presented in St Tropez, at the same time as the Cannes Film Festival.
Lady Blue Shanghai is a commission of David Lynch as part of the new Dior opening and campaign in Shanghai. It features the signature lynch stylistics and music but it feels timeless and modern.
The two films could not be more different and they derive from pure calculated commercial intent.
More striking then, is their artistic character, as I feel Lagerfeld and Lynch have really excelled in their craft. Their commercial artistry does not fail to satisfy.
