THE BROTHERS BLOOM is one of my all time favorite films.
soon after its release, i became obsessed, going as far as writing director Rian Johnson an email professing my undying love, not only for the film, but for him, personally.
in exchange for my gushing, Johnson wrote me a very sweet email and enclosed 10 image scans from the moleskine notebook that belonged to Stephen (Ruffalo’s character), which had been actually filled by an artist prior to filming.
He explained that the notebook is one of his prized possessions. and, as silly as it seems, i treasure these beautiful images in the same way.
