You’ve seen the classic imagery: devil on one shoulder, angel on the other. The angel is dressed in white, wrapped in a glowing halo of tranquility; the devil is red, sometimes angry and always talkative, encouraging the listener to do bad, bad things.
In the arts world, we call the angel a muse. And oh, how we love the idea of a muse. But the devil? He doesn’t get much play in creative circles, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t exist. The devil is creative block – an artistic deadlock that drags us down, robs us of our creativity, and then makes us think we don’t care. That devil dude is dangerous, and he plagues all artists at one time or another.
There are lots of ways to knock the anti-creativity devil off your shoulder, but one of our favorites is good, old-fashioned artistic inspiration. The following five films are striking, visual journeys – and they’re all about art, about creation, about the things we love. And they’ll invite your muse back, guaranteed.
