This Wednesday, New York's Museum of the Moving Image kicked off the second exhibit in a three-part series, "Persol Magnificent Obsessions: 30 Stories of Craftmanship on Film," showing off obsessive craftmanship in ten of film history's most stylistically interesting films.
The exhibit includes ephemera from and behind-the-scenes access to the artistry of actor/director Ed Harris ("Pollock"), actress Hilary Swank ("Million Dollar Baby"), director Jean-Pierre Jeunet ("Amelie"), director Todd Haynes ("Far from Heaven"), cinematographer Vittorio Storaro ("The Last Emperor"), director Alfred Hitchcock ("North by Northwest"), production designer Dean Tavoularis ("One From the Heart"), special effects supervisor Douglas Trumbull ("2001: A Space Odyssey"), composer Ennio Morricone (best known for his work with Sergio Leone), and costume designer Arianne Phillips ("W.E.").
The exhibit kicked off earlier this week with a special tenth anniversary screening of "Far from Heaven" and a gala that honored Haynes and Phillips and their contributions to the film world.
