Alex Prager's "Despair," featuring Bryce Dallas Howard

You can see the film at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City this fall, when it appears as part of "New Photography 2010."

Or you can watch it here and save yourself the trip.

Or do both.

Or neither.

Wrote Carol Vogel in her "Inside Art" column in last Friday's New York Times about the upcoming MoMA show, "There is ... a four-minute film by Ms. Prager, her first, with the actress Bryce Dallas Howard. Set in 1960s Los Angeles, it is inspired by the 1948 film 'The Red Shoes' about a ballerina whose obsession with dance conflicts with her need for love, ultimately leading to her suicide. Ms. Prager melds pulp fiction and fashion imagery (using the same stylistic devices that she uses in her photographs) in a film that stars women wearing synthetic wigs, and colorful period clothes."

i'm suspicious of films where the credits are run as long as the story
