Flaunt Magazine - Vegabond Issue: Permanent Vacation
It has a wide-open eye staring out from its palm. It clinks against an elephant and a Star of David. His chosen amulets act as a summary, the first visual indication of a creative soul unencumbered by choice. Everything is as good as anything else. The hamsa, I just like it. But I want to get a cool, crazy looking crucifix too.
The film is now playing in limited release. Not only is the film littered with home movies made by Yelchin at a very young age, but also his diary entries and lists not to mention testimonials from his family underline just how serious he took his film education. It was his Russian immigrant parents who first introduced Yelchin to films like Taxi Driver , Raging Bull , and Mean Streets , and afterwards Yelchin took it upon himself to further his film education on his own. He reached all the way back to the silent era and was constantly consuming films from the Golden Age of Hollywood, the French New Wave, Asian cinema, and much more. Not only that, but Yelchin took detailed notes throughout each viewing, working to understand the craft behind the filmmaking on display. Yelchin approached not just film acting but the entire world with this kind of intense education. Indeed, Kristen Stewart confesses in the documentary that when a year-old Yelchin asked a year-old Stewart what book she was reading, it sparked an inner crisis for the actress who felt like she needed to be doing more to seek out great art.
