Joseph Gordon-Levitt's 'Flickering Lights': VIDEO

Jg_levitt

Something peaceful to take into your evening.

Mashable: Lights

HitRECord, an online collaborative production company founded by actor and director Joseph Gordon-Levitt, released the above video earlier this week. The two-minute short shows a stunning collection of contributor- and audience-submitted clips of various "flickering lights" — reflections on rivers, candles on birthday cakes, cell phones scattered across a packed theater.

The concept originated from a poem by HitRECord member Wirrow, called "Give Me All The Flickering Lights," which is recited in the video.

Movies: 'Looper' Thrills

Looper-bangbang
"Bang Bang" Joseph Gordon Levitt kills people dead in LOOPER.

BY NATHANIEL ROGERS

YOUR FEATURE PRESENTATION

"Time travel hasn't been invented yet," Joseph Gordon-Levitt warns us from 2042 in LOOPER's voiceover. "But in the future it will be." In 2072 crime lords send their victims back in time to be killed by "loopers"  like Joe since it's the only way to get away with murder. (Apparently infallible forensic science has also been invented in the future!). 

Loopers dispatch their prey unceremoniously with a crude descendant of the shotgun called a  "Blunderbuss" which is useless at long distances but impossible to miss with up close. When each Looper's contract expires, his older self is sent back to his younger self for execution which is called "Closing the Loop". In this case that's Bruce Willis sent back in time to meet his death at the hands of Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Bruce Willis drag. (Joe's makeup effects, though extraordinarily non fake-looking are initially distracting -- JGL doesn't look like that!)

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Strips, Cross Dresses For 'SNL': VIDEOS

JGLSNL

Joseph Gordon-Levitt gave it his all while hosting Saturday Night Live last night, and it paid off. But how could it not when the actor opened with a glorious Magic Mike spoof that brought as many laughs as it did skin?

Another bit involved Gordon-Levitt discussing the decidedly fabulous "finer things" with Jay Pharoah and Kenan Thompson, and one of the final skits had the thespian portraying a masculine love lorn lass named Evelyn. What could have been an offensive few minutes was actually exceedingly well done, as you'll see from the clip AFTER THE JUMP.

I've also included "The Finer Things" clip AFTER THE JUMP, as well as a pretty make-shift recording of Gordon-Levitt's opener. When a better one becomes available I'll switch it out.
