Cinephile with Mark Borchardt: Gus Van Sant and Alessandro Michele’s Ouverture of Something That Never Ended

Mark Borchardt takes a look at the Gus x Gucci collaboration that brings together high cinema and haute couture.

Gucci and Gus Van Sant’s intoxicating, episodic collaboration, Ouverture of Something That Never Ended, is a visual love-fest of symmetry and color, grandeur and intrigue, movement and stasis, hewn together by high cinema and even higher fashion. Even those not seduced by the dreamy vortex of haute couture can still enjoy the luxurious, exotic ride of this haunting film.

Mark Borchardt is a filmmaker and playwright living in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Some of his films include Coven, The Dundee Project and The More the Scarier VI.
