Vivian Hua (華婷婷) is the Editor-in-Chief of REDEFINE magazine as well as a master of globetrotting for free and evading 9-to-5 work schedules. She enjoys observing human idiosyncrasies perhaps more than anything and is a magnet for homeless people (a joy) and bug bites of all types (absolutely terrible). Marshmallows – while not really food – are one of her favorite foods, especially if they are freezered, stale, or fire-toasted. She doesn’t want to space travel, really, which is an unpopular view these days. Her design work, astrological chart, and other crap can be seen at www.inallthings-patterns.net.

Glass Lips – Blood Of A Poet (2007) Film Review

Glass Lips (English translation), or Blood Of A Poet (literal translation), is Lech Majewski’s latest offering for the year 2007. Perhaps it is because I watched Glass Lips back to back with another Majewski film, Roe’s Room, but I found the entire viewing of Glass Lips to be quite painful. I’d been torn in a...Read...

Chalk (2008) Film Review

Chalk is the latest release by Morgan Spurlock, so one is immediately pre-disposed to having opinions about it due to the fact that Supersize Me was so controversial. Although entertaining, Chalk is flawed in a most significant way: it comes off as a documentary when, in fact, it is not one. Its tagline, “Real teaching...Read...

Ghosts Of Cité Soleil (2006) Film Review

Denmark/USA 2006, 88 minutes, 35mm English, Crole, French (w/ English subtitles) Most of us have heard about the political turmoil in Haiti, but news reports are always very disconnected from reality.

The Bothersome Man (2006) Film Review

Norway, 2006, 90 minutes, DigiBeta Norweigan (with English subtitles) The reason the synopsis for The Bothersome Man sounds ambiguous is because the film is. A Norweigan surrealist flick directed by Jens Lien and written by Per Schreiner, The Bothersome Man has won 8 awards at film festivals around the world, as well as been nominated...Read...

Manufactured Landscapes (2006) Documentary Film Review

Canada, 2006, 90 minutes, 35mm English Manufactured Landscapes is an unusual treat for anyone who is interested in the world at large, and in man’s involvement with the world. Although clearly a film that makes you contemplate your connection with the environment, the film is not outwardly politically-motivated or explicit about its stances on environmental...Read...

Goya’s Ghosts (2007) Film Review

Spain, 2007, 114 minutes, 35mm English I wanted to like Goya’s Ghosts. The previews had made it out to look like the film was centrally focused on controversy about Goya’s work and life, when in fact Goya’s presence was merely a fleeting tangent. That was the first noticeable turnoff of the movie, and the first...Read...

Neon Blonde Musician Interview

Thanks to the explosion of garage bands and MTV’s acceptance of them, suburbia now seems like a prime breeding ground for scene kids and musicians on the rise. But as Johnny Whitney of Neon Blonde and the Blood Brothers will tell you, things weren’t always this way. Whitney grew up in Kirkland, a suburb of...Read...
