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...

Paprika (2007) Film Review

At first glance, Paprika is a stylish sci-fi detective thriller that uses dreams as a reason to explore the limits of animation. The visuals are exhilarating and titillating based on any level of criteria.

Kinski Live Show Review & Process Interview : Balancing Music And Cinema, Rock And Experimentation

It almost makes too much sense that Kinski would choose to do a live score to the experimental silent film, Berlin: Symphony of a City. The band named themselves after Klaus Kinski, the wonderfully insane sidekick to legendary German New Wave director Werner Herzog (whose surname was also used in a Kinski side project).

Eagle vs. Shark (2007) Film Review

New Zealand 2007, 93 minutes It’s impossible to talk about Eagle vs Shark, a low budget comedy about weirdos in love, without talking about Napoleon Dynamite, a low budget comedy about weirdos coming of age. Taika Waititi’s latest movie borrows so much from the 2004 hit comedy that it never truly escapes its shadow, however...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.
