La Turbulence des Fluides

Beautiful. Magical. Fantastic


I'm stunned after watching this. Subverts all rules of storytelling. Briliant.

The Desert Fox

Mason is superb but not enough meat on the bone for my taste. Would have loved to see more of his military exploits.

Cross of Iron

Typical Peckinpah. Can't get over how much Schell hammed in the film. Mason is wasted though.

Hollywood Nights - Bob Seger

She stood there bright as the sun on that california coast
He was a midwestern boy on his own
She looked at him with those soft eyes,
So innocent and blue
He knew right then he was too far from home he was too far from home

She took his hand and she led him along that golden beach
They watched the waves tumble over the sand
They drove for miles and miles
Up those twisting turning roads
Higher and higher and higher they climbed

And those hollywood nights
In those hollywood hills
She was looking so right
In her diamonds and frills
All those big city nights
In those high rolling hills
Above all the lights
She had all of the skills

Hed headed west cause he felt that a change
Would do him good
See some old friends, good for the soul
She had been born with a face that would her
Get her way
He saw that face and he lost all control
He had lost all control

Night after night, day after day, it went on and on
Then came that morning he woke up alone
He spent all night staring down at the lights of la
Wondering if he could ever go home

And those hollywood nights
In those hollywood hills
It was looking so right
It was giving him chills
In those big city nights
In those high rolling hills
Above all the lights
With a passion that kills

In those hollywood nights
In those hollywood hills
She was looking so right
In her diamonds and frills
All those big city nights
In those high rolling hills
Above all the lights
She had all of the skills

Pretty fucking awesome. Thanks to Kabir.

"A Glass of Rage" & "The End of August at the Hotel Ozone"

Prob shouldn't have watched them when drunk but still neither of them made much sense to me.

Urban Explorers - Into the Darkness

Great docu on one of my life's biggest passions which I'm sadly not able to do as often as I'd like.

Friday Night Lights

Good film. The TV series is better and the soundtrack is fucking awesome. The last 10 mins of the film are pretty sweet.

Flash Point

Awesome MMA action.

Your Hand in Mine - Explosions in the Sky

The perfect song for slowly and surely falling in love.

Post-rock is so incredibly beautiful. First Sigur Ros and Mogwai. Now El Ten Eleven and Explosions in the sky. I do believe...........

Stray Dog of Anime


Too alarming now to talk about
take your pictures down and shake it out
truth or consequence say it aloud
use that evidence race it around

There goes my hero
watch him as he goes
There goes my hero
he's ordinary

Don't the best of them bleed it out
While the rest of them peter out

Kudos my hero leaving all the best
You know my hero the one thats on

Tokyo Ga

Dunno man. Heard a lot bout it but I found it to be somewhat superficial and pretentious.

My first Jodorowsky comic and it's pretty cool. Awesome space opera

Yossi and Jagger

Eytan Fox really disappoints. I expected so much more after "Walk on Water".

The Andromeda Strain

This mini-series is a travesty of a great book by Crichton. Avoid it all costs.

Iron Man

Just when I was losing faith with Marvel they come up with this doozy. Whoa !!!

Kylie Minogue - Fever Tour Manchester

Incredible Tour DVD. The performance is "Love at First Sight" is nothing short of magical.


Bira Moretti

The Cinema of Prayoga: Indian Experimental Film and Video 1913-2006

Am gonna sip and savor this for a long long time. Now if I could only get my hands on the films itself rather than just read bout em.

Art Photography Now

Great book for inspiration. Each frame does tell a story.

Ennio Morricone Arena Concerto

The Maestro back to his old tricks. Just check out the playlist.

The Stars My Destination

WOW !!!!!!!!!!

Summer in Andalusia

Very cool and sweet anime short by one of the geniuses behind Studio Ghibli. Wish it was a full length feature though.

Silent Light

Incredible film. Just the opening shot is worth the price of admission.

The Invention of Love

Been meaning to read Tom Stoppard's play on AE Housman for years and finally got to read it.
Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. I really hope someone adapts into a movie soon. Focus Features are you listening ?

Cremaster 1

Calling this stuff freaky would be the understatement of the year. I don't think I'll be exploring anymore of Matthew Barney. This is all way beyond me.


One of the best and most trippy experimental features that I have seen. Beautiful film with a great soundtrack. Daft Punk Rocks.

Great premise but in the end let down by trying to ape SEVEN too much. Cinematography is absolutely fabulous though.

Sword of the Stranger

Incredible Anime film. Akira Kurosawa himself would have been proud of this one.
