There’s a movie being make about the life of Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, a woman whom I must report I’d never heard of until I saw that fact that “Life in Polka Dots” was being filmed while collecting items for my weekly Film News blog for the Syracuse New Times. She was a contemporary of Andy Warhol.
You can read that account on that site by clicking the link below.
An American production company bought partnership rights with a firm from the U.K., so we may get a chance to see the film here. There’s a photo of her exhibit you’ll be able to see by clicking over to the link above that drew me in like a magnet, by the way. Think polka dots.
Also of some note is that Eddie Murphy is being quoted about the making of “Beverly Hills Cop 4.” You remember Axel Foley, right, the slick and funny dude that came before Dr. Doolittle and that talking donkey?
Polka-dot themes or Campbell soup cans for your art wall hangings? Polka dots on what articles of your clothing? Who’s your favorite Eddie Murphy character, and why?
