[Video] Stop-motion “Filmarilyn” – Marilyn Monroe by Paolo Gioli

by Violet Blue on August 29, 2012

Chasing down various filmmaker threads online just now, I just ran across an upload of Filmarilyn (1992), an experimental stop-motion short film by Paolo Gioli, using the famous photos of Marilyn Monroe from her last photo shoot (with Bert Stern). It’s not wank material (and you may not like the eerie music), so the film will be more entertaining to artier eros fans and those who love Marilyn Monroe – as opposed to dear readers who visit for more explicit entertainment. It’s impossible for me to watch this and not feel her beauty and warmth – as well as the darkness that followed her light everywhere. You may relate. Nudes are in the beginning, and there is a nice nude sequence beginning around 6:40.

I had to stop watching midway. I was afraid Tony Curtis was going to ooze out of screen…….
