Wolf Guy

Wolf Guy

| May 23, 2017

Without a doubt, I can say that Wolf Guy from Arrow Video is the weirdest film that I’ll see in 2017. I say this with the utmost heartfelt attitude that while nothing at any point makes any sense of the film, it is an amazing experience and a film that Japanese exploitation film lovers should […]

Bad Rap

Bad Rap

| May 21, 2017

Hip-hop culture has transcended many racial and cultural boundaries after its founding in the ’70s by African-American and Latino youth in the South Bronx. Since then, rappers have emerged as legitimate pop culture stars around the world and hip-hop’s global movement has become increasingly more diverse. Yet the face of rap in America remains primarily […]

The Climber

The Climber

After completing his work on four Andy Warhol and Paul Morrissey between 1970 and 1974 and splitting from Warhol’s “factory” crowd, Joe Dallesandro could have faded into obscurity, being written off as some pretty-boy sex symbol incapable of being taken seriously as a performer. Indeed that could have been the case if he had set […]

Willard (1971) & Ben (1972)

Willard (1971) & Ben (1972)

| May 16, 2017

As a pair of films, Willard (1971) and its sequel Ben (1972) stand in stark contrast to each other and I’ve always been fascinated by the differences between the two. Willard offers audiences an unrelentingly tense character study hinging on a revenge narrative that’s elevated by the addition of a horror component in the form […]

Wonder Woman: Commemorative Edition

Wonder Woman: Commemorative Edition

| May 15, 2017

When I think back on the first wave of DC Universe Animated Original Movies, Wonder Woman (2009) may not stand out to me as the most ambitious or even the most impressive. Of the first six animated DC pictures released between 2007 and 2009, though, Wonder Woman has always stuck out to me as perhaps […]

Many American cinephiles are familiar with the French New Wave, but in the 1960s a number of countries were seeing their own versions of that movement in cinema. In Japan filmmakers like Nagisa Oshima, Koreyoshi Kurehara, and Seijun Suzuki were taking a wrecking ball to tradition and expanding Japanese cinema in new directions. A number […]
