'My Summer of Love' (2004) by Pawel Pawlikowski

Am I alone in extolling My Summer of Love as a masterpiece? It hasn’t left my mind since I saw it almost ten years ago.

You are not alone. I also believe this film to be an absolute masterpiece which sadly hasn’t received the attention it deserves. But that’s what an independent film is.. Too bad that Emily Blunt went from such deep movies to a total mainstream trash.

Gotta watch this one.

It’s really worth watching. Incredible acting and filmmaking.

Never-before-seen photos of Marilyn Monroe in new exhibit ‘Marilyn: The Lost Photos’ The show at Sumo Gallery in Tribeca features shots of an unguarded Marilyn as she filmed movies like ‘Niagara’ and ‘River of No Return’

Rare: Some of the most arresting ‘forgotten’ shots of Marilyn Monroe will go on show in New York after art researchers took more than two years to find them. This shot was taken by sound engineer Lani Carlson.

Joking around: Allan Snyder depicted the star with a Mountie during the filming of River of No Return in 1953.

Modelling work: This image by Mischa Pelz, a friend of the rising film star, was taken when he was hired to shoot lawn furniture with her as the model soon before the release of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes in 1953.

This photo by Allan (Whitey) Snyder was taken during the filming of the movie “Niagara,” in upstate New York. There were no other photographers around, it was only Snyder and Marilyn taking pictures in between takes as a way to relax.

Relaxed: This image by Lani Carlson, a sound engineer who faked being a photographer for the Chicago Tribune, showed the film star playing with a dog on film sets. Carlson gained a valuable half hour of her time..

Waiting for someone: This image by Milton Greene was taken in April 1956 during filming for Bus Stop.

Dressing down: A relaxed shot by Allan Snyder of Marilyn during the filming of River of No Return in 1953.

Horsing around: Another shot on the River of No Return set showed the star with a horse in wild countryside.

Unseen: An image by Lani Carlson. The show will reopen tomorrow at the Sumo Gallery in Manhattan, running until this Saturday, after going on display earlier this summer in Hollywood and San Francisco.

Glamorous: A 1952 shot by sound engineer Lani Carlson. Ten years later, the star died tragically young at 36….

Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17: Rebels take full control of plane crash bodies

Netherlands angered over reports of victims’ bodies decaying in the sun for days

Donetsk rebel leader Alexander Borodai said the bodies recovered from the crash site would remain in refrigerated train cars in the rebel-held town of Torez, 15 kilometres from the crash site, until the arrival of an international aviation delegation.

"The bodies will go nowhere until experts arrive," Borodai said, speaking in the rebel-held city of Donetsk.

Anger is growing in the Netherlands that bodies have not yet been repatriated and their loved ones are apparently being denied dignity in death.

A mother left devastated by the MH17 plane crash has appealed to Russian President Vladimir Putin “to send my children home”. Ms Fredriksz held up a photo of her son Bryce, 23, and his 20-year-old girlfriend Daisy as she pleaded for the return of their bodies. "I want to arrange their funeral. I can’t. I don’t know where they are. I want them back. I want my children back." Clenching their picture, she added: “Look at those people. How beautiful. They have to come back.

"Mr Putin - send my children home. Send them home. Please!"
