If memory serves, this is the same wall featured previously on everyone’s favourite home of crazy walls. Its previous appearance, covered in colour-coordinated crazy, was innovative and aesthetically pleasing, but crazy CIA agent Carrie Mathison has, in season three, opted for a more traditional map-and-string crazy wall, pictured here with her despairing and uncrazy father.
I happened to record the final minutes of an episode of Revenge and captured this fine crazy board, perfectly-formed with red string. A free-standing solution such as this is ideal for the crazy man who prefers his actual walls to present an illusion of sanity.
Renault Clio advert
Taking a break from the usual preposterous American movies and TV dramas, a quick diversion to France for an advertisement for the Renault Clio car. I have no idea what it’s about, but it briefly features an old man wearing a cardigan in a dark room pointing at a standard-issue Crazy Wall. (Or “Fou Mur”, Google Translate informs me.) You can watch the 31-second advert, but first you’ll have to sit through a 31-second advert for something else. It’s fou all the way down. (Thanks to Laurent Barrois for the tip.)
Thanks to Eric Peterson for this shot from Stargate Universe which shows Robert Carlyle’s character, Nicholas Rush, in a room full of crazy. Not only the required Crazy Wall, but a whiteboard filled with scrawled equations! Crazy Jackpot!
Person of Interest
The crazy keeps on coming! Redfrypan sends this fine still from Person of Interest, as broadcast on German TV. Once again I’ve brightened it a little to make the crazy clearer. Those crazies sure like their atmospheric gloom.
A fine example of a pretty crazy wall (well, crazy bookshelves) from the movie Twelve Monkeys, submitted by Paul Mison. I’ve tweaked the image to bring forth the madness from the movie’s atmospheric gloom.
The Next Three Days
What is it about Russell Crowe and crazy walls? There is, of course, A Beautiful Mind, and also the mild craziness on show in American Gangster. And now Charlotte Mouncey has alerted me to this shot from The Next Three Days, also featuring Mr Crowe. One wonders what the inside of his own home looks like…
Bron / Broen / The Bridge
Sometimes crazy walls are so crazy they fly right past the classic frenzied, messy papering and end up in the all-too-scary realm of the overly-logical and ruthlessly organised. Here we see a fine monochromatic example of methodical craziness from the lair of the evil genius in the Danish/Swedish TV series The Bridge.
Thanks to Clay Parker Jones for this crazy wall from American Gangster. It doesn’t look super crazy from this shot but I think I can maybe make out some red string on that map in the background… the signs are there!
