I just have to spotlight the whimsical and ridiculous home of Roland Emmerich here on the blog. The New York Times featured the auteur’s London town house on Thursday and I’ve been unable to shake the images from my head. Admittedly not for everyone, Emmerich’s home contains bold image after bold image: a taxidermy zebra, communist imagery, World War II planes remade into furniture and a waxwork of the Pope. While on the same grand level as his blockbuster films, like Independence Day, his home has something I find missing from his films: depth. Slideshow here.
