    WINNEBAGO MAN (Hulu) – You’ve surely seen the subject of this film before. Out-takes from an industrial video he wrote and starred in have been circulating for 20 years – much of that in found footage festivals and hand-dubbed and traded video tapes, and online in the last five years thanks to Youtube. I dont […]

    Anvil (366/215)

    ANVIL (iTunes) – I think that this should play back-to-back with FUBAR – two Canadian films that could both be documentaries about people I went to school with in Alberta. FUBAR, ANVIL, FUBAR II – I think that could make an interesting afternoon of films. Put on your best Judas Priest t-shirt, get a two-four […]

    Young@Heart, Repulsion (359/211)

    YOUNG@HEART (Netflix) – There are some fun candid scenes; soft shoe in the jail hallway, discussions about who has and has not had the Last Rites said for them, etc. Are these 70 and 80-somethings feeling young because they sing, or do they sing because they feel young? Singing old standards that you’d hear from […]

    LET ME IN (in-flight) – Been meaning to watch the original first, but while we’re here and it’s free, what the heck. Feel bad for everyone except the bullies, really. GLENN OWEN DODDS (in-flight) – short film about a conversation with God on a bus. “What am I supposed to look like? Big white beard […]

    WHO IS HARRY NILSSON (AND WHY IS EVERYBODY TALKIN’ ABOUT HIM?) (Netflix) – So many songs I know, but no idea who sang them. ONE IS THE LONELIEST NUMBER, LIME IN THE COCONUT, much more… “You’re breaking my heart, you’re tearing it apart, so fuck you” – how have I never heard this song? If […]

    The Agony and Ecstasy of Phil Spector (54/31)

    by  • 1/31/2011 • film • 0 Comments

    THE AGONY AND ECSTASY OF PHIL SPECTOR (TIFF Lightbox) – Interesting, if a bit confusing format. Plenty of video from the original court case, but typically with Spector-produced songs playing over the audio, sometimes with sub-titled commentary on the songs as well. Good documentary, with lots of interview footage shot for the film. I’d say […]
