Modern Actors Acting Classic Cinema

I came across this today, which was posted earlier in the morning I think.
It's a gorgeous series of black and white silent videos where actors are simply acting, or as the title puts it, re-enacting classic screen types, by New York Times Magazine.
They're all fantastic but Javier Bardem and Tilda Swinton are my favourites.
Embedding is not allowed apparently, but you can watch all of them here.


  1. I loved Tilda's! Jennifer Lawrence was a big favorite of mine as well. So creepy!

  2. Wow. Is Tilda supposed to be invoking Dreyer's Joan of Arc there? Because it's uncanny.

  3. yeah,
    she's really brilliant.
