Deerhoof are scary. What they have done on their latest release, Reveille, is reimagine the “Dies Irae” as populated by little furry things.
Songs From the Second Floor may be blasphemous in its relentless tweaking of Christianity, but it is never less than sincere about its search for divine intercession.
Carla and Paul form an odd couple, slouching towards romance while successfully defending (and defining) their common interests against powerful and dangerous people.
While the plot of Possession concerns yearning and fervor, its tone is provocatively detached.
What Robert Evans does, mostly, is him.
Explores the many costs of 'modern times'.
Big fat super-popular boy power movies don't rely on plot, so it probably makes sense that this pulse-pounding girl power movie doesn't either (and like most boy movies, this one is about a stunningly beautiful white protagonist surrounded by a multi-culti crew).
