The Arts Centre (the one under the metal spire) is 5 minutes walk across the Yarra River from Flinders Street Station/Federation Square. You can always rely on  Arts Centre Melbourne to come up with an impeccibly compiled (FREE) exhibition throughout the year. This one closes January 22, 2017.

Kylie Minogue has donated stage outfits, sketches and memorabilia covering over two decades of international touring. Designers include John Galliano, Karl Lagerfeld, Jean Paul Gaultier, Dolce & Gabbana. Patsy and Eddie would approve.

Amazing cinematography in "Mr Robot" Season 2, Episode 9

 Sam Esmail's series has always been visually stunning with inventive framing and compositions. This week was no exception. The shot with Elliot and dad outside the prison, camera mounted at their feet.

The scenes with Phillip Price facing off White Rose were equally stunning. One shot has the two umbrella men taking up only 5% of the screen. In another, they are strolling through a formal garden. Classically composed. Reminded me of the shot in Resnais's "Last Day in Marienbad" combined with a surrealist painting.
