Catch An Ego At Gems

I’ve had my eyes on Ego for a while, because he is, quite simply, one of the most talented street artists in the Seattle art scene. Images of skulls have certainly made a resurgence in the past couple years, but they are generally rendered for juveniles, mallrats, and those who find it hard to believe...Read...

South Central – The Owl of Minerva Album Review

The type of electronic-rock hybrid music Americans seem to lap up these days either take the fairly synth-poppy route of the Presets or the funky house route of Daft Punk and Justice. South Central’s The Owl of Minerva is more for the individuals who aren’t afraid to enjoy dark, distorted, and at times industrial-esque electronica....Read...

Goth Cruise (2008) IFC Documentary Film Review

My first, and probably only, cruise experience was two months ago. It sailed through the Northern European Baltic Sea countries, like Norway, Sweden, Poland, and Russia, and it epitomized all that I hate about traveling: gluttony, closemindedness, and lack of desire to really get to know other countries. To make it worse, I was one...Read...

Rewind Short Film Review (2007)

One of the best shorts I’ve ever seen, Rewind is a complete mind fuck that is confusing at first and genius upon completion. Set wholly in a dingy room, the entire short is played backwards, with no dialogue between the characters. The only words are the description of a narrator, who is not describing the...Read...

Savage Grace (2007) Film Review

Savage Grace is a tale about the incestuous relationship of a mother and her homosexual son. The entire film is an ever-deepening downwards spiral that is disturbing to watch. Yet, like a car accident, the viewer cannot help but be interested by the dysfunction; it’s twisted to watch, but it’s interesting. Savage Grace is a...Read...

Alone in Four Walls / Allein in vier Wanden (2007) Film Review

Alone in Four Walls is a beautifully-shot look at youths who spend their time in reformatory facilities for youngsters between the ages up to the age of the fourteen. Husband and wife duo Alexandra Westmeier and Inigo Westmeier have managed to capture the stories of a population largely unknown to the world. Most of the...Read...

The Bet Collector / Kubrador (2006) Film Review

Phillippines, 2006, 35mm, Tagalog (with subtitles) Jeffrey Jeturian’s film revolves around luck. Amy, a middle-aged woman who endlessly roams the winding streets of her Manila neighborhood relies entirely on it. Searching for people to place bets on jueteng, a popular gambling game in the Philippines, her livelihood is based on chance. From random street encounters,...Read...

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...
