  6. two households, both alike in dignity

    in fair verona, where we lay our scene

    from ancient grudge break to new mutiny

    where civil blood makes civil hands unclean

    from forth the fatal loins of these two foes

    a pair of star-cross’d lovers take their life;

    whose misadventured piteous overthrows

    do with their death bury their parents’ strife.

    the fearful passage of their death-mark’d love 

    and the continuance of their parents’ rage,

    which but their children’s end, nought could remove

    is now the two hours’ traffic of our stage.

  9. the painting

    i often begin by creating a single image. in this case i had been working with my friend vincent on a trip through india. it was the trip where i first met amitabh bachchan, who plays meyer wolfsheim. vincent had done a portrait of amitabh. anyways, leonardo is a great collector of art, and so i thought a painting would be a great way to focus him on the idea of doing Gatsby, and especially on the tragic side of Gatsby. to construct the painting we did some staging, a shoot with my car in sydney, and of course the head belongs to leonardo from another location. what no one knows is that the woman in the car with Gatsby is in fact my wife, CM.
