THIS series of trailer mash-ups enjoyed a brief run of being quoted on This Isn’t Happiness, which was flattering and good for hits, though it would drive me slightly crazy when they’d put the images in a random order, as if they hadn’t noticed that mine are actually arranged. They’ve stopped doing it now, but maybe THIS will catch their eye.

Film Directors With Their Shirts Off: The Next Generation

Sofia Coppola.

A second generation topless filmmaker, no less, since I featured Sofia’s dad and his lovely moobs some time ago.

This image comes from This Isn’t Happiness, a beautiful picture blog which is updated with spectacular frequency, ensuring you get a regular image-fix several times a day. The only downside is their tendency to feature rather a lot of pics of sexy ladies in states of undress, which I certainly don’t approve of.

In this case, the image was culled from The World’s Best Ever, another sterling image blog.

We could now have a heated debate about the merits or otherwise of Sofia Coppola’s filmmaking, but it doesn’t seem quite right to do so under a topless picture of the crooked-smiling auteur. Nor does it seem appropriate to simply remark “Nice rack.” And tying it in somehow to Kathryn Bigelow’s epoch-making Oscar win, or International Women’s Day, didn’t quite seem right either.

So let’s turn this into an APPEAL — Send me your topless director shots! Still looking for an Orson Welles, a Ken Russell and an Otto Preminger.
