    Malick’s latest is an ambitious stunner. The film builds through surreal cuts, flashbacks, and flashforwards spanning the lifespan of the earth. Emmanuel Lubezki’s Cinematography is breathtaking. The return of Doug Trumbull’s work to the big screen brings a fantastic texture and layer to the film with his insistence on in camera effects. Hopefully Malick keeps up his current pace…

    Nick Ray’s film slowly detonates the nuclear in the post-war American family. James Mason comes apart at the seams as he manically attempts to negotiate the modern world of suburbia. Gloriously shot in cinemascope the colors bloom to create a surreal palette from the depths of Eisenhower era banality

  • last year at marienbad
    Alan Resnais and Alan Robbe-Grillet’s insanely gorgeous dream/nightmare of a film still stuns and puzzles. About a man and woman (Delphine Seyrig with a new do and a closet of Chanel) who upon arriving at a hotel have a sense they may have met there a year previously. The hotel is overwhelmed by baroque ornamentation adding to the lush hallucination and confused seduction in this stylized masterpiece.

  • tami show

    No longer ‘the greatest concert movie you’ve never seen.’ Finally available, this historic concert from ’64 mixes James Brown, The Beach Boys, Chuck Berry, the Supremes, the Rolling Stones (introduced as “from liverpool”), and Lesley Gore (the then largest star on the bill). The performances are charged and fresh as everyone was on the verge of breaking big. Complete with manic go-go dancers performing throughout the entire performance in a marathon feat. The moment which catapults the whole film over the top is James Brown’s dancing, which is perhaps the finest ever captured to film.

  • night of the hunter

    A terrifying Robert Mitchum masterly embodies evil in Charles Laughton’s sublime overlooked film. Haunting cinematography by Stanley Cortez employs amazing lighting and effects to create the nightmarish atmosphere looming over the story.

    Horseshit Deliver the first great summer album of ’11. Pulsing hallucinatory loops and samples build up on these tracks to give their music new depth and expanse allowing for plenty of room to freak out. The album combines electronics, guitars, drums and plenty of effects to create a tropical vibe from the calypso sounds of French Countryside to the bongos on Another Side to the standout I Hate The Beach. This album blasts PH into new territories and as evident from their Shitty Sundays posts it’s just the beginning…

  • cave of forgotten dreams
    chauvet cave

    Werner Herzog dives into the Chauvet Cave in southeastern France with 3d cameras to capture an amazing view into Paleolithic cave painting with 21st century visualization techniques. The film is the first truly great use of 3d in rethinking cinematic space. The cave’s warped surfaces and cinematic like drawings bulge and layer to create a sensation of depth not seen before in the cineplex. With Werner’s wry narration hovering over the dreamy vineyards, rivers, and caves of the region the movie is mesmerizing mix of ideas and visuals. And a few albino alligators never hurt
