Last week, a retrospective boxset entitled Clint Eastwood: 35 Films 35 Years at Warner Bros. was released. Dedicated to the film career of one of the greatest directors/actors in Hollywood history, the set is a summation of movies he is made in the past four decades. Unfortunately, the boxset includes only Warner Brothers pictures, so gone are classics like Sergio Leone’s Dollar Trilogy (which included A Fist Full of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.

I love Damages. I do. But I can’t help but feel that their trailers are… lacking. Tate Donovan’s, “Another 15 minutes and you would have been dead!” is wonderful. I can’t help but think that the second trailer is much better. The first plays up a little much to the cliche of “Glenn Close as a bunny boiler,” and not so much to the truth of, “Rich, brilliant noir TV.”

Damages: Trailer #1

Damages: Trailer #2

Four Tet recently played three songs for Pitchfork.tv’s “Tunnelvision”. “Angel Echoes” and “Sing” are from Four Tet’s latest opus, There Is Love in You, which we awarded an 8 last month and Timothy Gabriele said was “among Kieran Hedben’s best work, a dance friendly album that fits into the extensions of spiritual jazz he has spent a career crafting.”
