When Art Imitates Art

  • Published in Film

What happens when Kanye West “All of the Lights” (intertitles, dir. Hype Williams) and Gaspar Noe’s “Enter the Void” (opening titles, designers Tom Kan and Thorsten Fleisch) and Jean-Luc Godard’s “A Woman is A Woman” (opening titles) look the same? Some name calling on Twitter.

What happens with Rihanna “S&M” (dir. Melina Matsoukas) looks like David LaChapelle (various works)? Lawsuit.

For more commentary, The Art Law Blog highlights the difference of idea and expression.
