• Who Wants To Kill Jessie, Pirate Radio (71/34)

    by  • 2/3/2012 • film • 0 Comments

    WHO WANTS TO KILL JESSIE – Incredibly absurd film from 1960s Czechoslovakia sees Jessie, a buxom blonde scientist pulled off the comic pages and into the real world. Her comic book foes; a cowboy and a low rent caped superhero follow as well. It’s a farce dealing quite literally with adult wish fulfillment and some […]

    ART & COPY – This almost makes me think that advertising has a higher purpose. I almost leave this documentary wishing there was more advertising that tell such true and honest stories about the products that they’re selling… Oh, wait, feeling’s gone. It’s an interesting look at how advertising happens – from the back room, […]

They’re running out of blood, and the vampires are starting to change into base, unthinking creatures. Vampirism in this world was caused by some sort of plague that came from a bat, and in ten years, they’ve […]

    Mary & Max, Brick (117/72)

    MARY & MAX (iTunes) – Devastating film. It’s beautiful technically and emotionally. The innocence in both characters is nearly complete, even as they age, and Mary grows up. She is nearly as bad at reading people as Max, and things really break down when Mary graduates. There are continuity issues and flat-out errors, but I […]
