Tilda Swinton

    WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN

    Lynne Ramsay United Kingdom, 2011

    Tilda Swinton chills as an ice-cold avatar of maternal resentment and regret in Lynne Ramsay’s reckoning with familial dysfunction. Draped in chiaroscuro lighting, deliberately sparse domestic spaces eerily evoke the tension between nature and nurture, and the characters’ vacant emotional lives.

    I AM LOVE

    Luca Guadagnino Italy, 2009

    Dazzling the senses, I Am Love revives the lavish, elegant, emotionally expressive style of classic 50s melodramas and proves their timeless vitality. It also confirms Tilda Swinton—who learned both Italian and Russian for the role(!)—as one of the best, most unpredictable actors.

    THE BOX

    Jes Benstock, Luke Losey United Kingdom, 1996

    A dazzling mix of stop motion and time-lapse editing, this surreal music video for Orbital’s hit “The Box” moves at the speed of light, transforming East London into a futuristic dystopia. Flung out of space, Tilda Swinton mesmerizes as an extraterrestrial visitor stunned by the pace of modern life.

    CYCLING THE FRAME

    Cynthia Beatt West Germany, 1988

    Cycling through 1980s Berlin, Tilda Swinton is a serene presence in Cynthia Beatt’s psychogeographical short, in which movement and stagnation collide. The juxtaposition of placid ponds and lush gardens against concrete buildings and border checks conjures the paradoxes that run alongside the Wall.

    ASHES

    Apichatpong Weerasethakul Thailand, 2012

    Palme d’Or winner Apichatpong Weerasethakul was challenged to make a short film with the unique hand-cranked film camera, the LomoKino. The result, Ashes, is something strange and special: part sideshow, part movie, part diary—all cinema.
