A documentary by Dan Forrer exploring the birth of hip hop in the 1970s. Narrated by Gene Simmons, the film tells the story of the origins of contemporary rap by exploring the artists that helped to lay the groundwork for this new musical art form.
Features rare footage, archive interviews, seldom seen photographs and the music that changed the world, all at once making for the finest program on this element of Bob Dylan and The Band's respective and communal careers yet to emerge.
DVD Review ROSETTA (BLU-RAY)
It's great to see The Criterion Collection continue to release relatively obscure foreign films like this, regardless of their box office numbers. It would be a shock if this wasn't yet another one of their excellent Blu-ray efforts.
In each hour-long episode, he takes viewers along for the journey with two or three celebrity guests who are connected to one another by an intimate, sometimes hidden link, treks through layers of ancestral history, uncovers secrets and surprises in their family trees and shares life-altering discoveries.
DVD Review A HOLLIS FRAMPTON ODYSSEY (BLU-RAY)
The Criterion Collection has gone the avant-garde short film route before, so I'm sure their collection of iconic American filmmaker Hollis Frampton's best works is sure to dazzle film fans on Blu-ray.
DVD Review VIPS
Everybody loves a good con, as long as they aren't the victim of it. This is the true tale of the most notorious con men to come out of Brazil...or I could be trying to pull a fast one on you.
DVD Review BELLE DE JOUR (BLU-RAY)
The ageless Catherine Deneuve gives one of her most remarkable performances in Luis Bunuel's surreal classic. I can't wait to see how great it looks on a Criterion Collection Blu-ray disc.
DVD Review HIGH AND LOW
Toshiro Mifune as a true master of the universe, in Akira Kurosawa's brutally taut crime story. On Blu-ray from our friends at Criterion, and it's never looked better.
DVD Review JACKBOOTS ON WHITEHALL
Really, all there is to know about this going in is that it's a British political satire that uses puppets to tell it's story. Eat your heart out, Matt Stone and Trey Parker!
DVD Review INSIGNIFICANCE (Criterion Blu-ray)
It's always great to see a Nicolas Roeg film for the first time, but it's even better when it stars Theresa Russell and is contained on a Criterion Collection Blu-ray disc.
DVD Review BLACK MOON (CRITERION BLU-RAY)
The great Louis Malle's most fasinating, spellbinding film finally gets it's due via this wonderful Blu-ray release from The Crierion Collection. I can't wait to see what an amazing job they've done with this one.
DVD Review THE REAL CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST
If you thought the infamous Cannibal Holocaust was tough to sit through, then One 7 Movies looks to take such disgust to a whole other level.
DVD Review L'ENFANCE NUE
One of the great films from French director Maurice Pialat makes its DVD debut courtesy of The Criterion Collection, and it sure looks like a disc that's more than worth owning.
DVD Review LOUIE BLUIE
The Criterion Collection comes through again and offers us an obscure documentary from acclaimed director Terry Zwigoff. This is really going to appeal to fans of both Zwigoff and jazz.
A subjective, autobiographical meditation on the allure of cigarettes and their troubling legacy for the state of North Carolina. It's about loss and preservation, addiction and denial. And it's also about filmmaking - home movies, documentary, and fiction filmmaking - as the filmmaker fences with the legacy of an obscure Hollywood melodrama that is purportedly based on his great-grandfather's life.
DVD Review UNE FEMME MARIEE
Long out of print, Koch Lorber brings one of Godard's lost films to American audiences with a barebones, but solid, release.
DVD Review FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF (BLU-RAY)
Ah, the 80s classic finally makes its way to Blu-ray. I can't wait to see what Mia Sara looks like in HD!
