If you didn’t already know it by now, Short Ends and Leader is one year old this week. So in celebration of such a monumental achievement, we’ll be forgoing some of the standard blog entries – at least for today – in order to offer up some perspective on the aesthetic behind this daily film discussion. But that doesn’t mean there’s nothing but worthless digital dung being released at the local brick and mortar. In fact, two of 2007’s best movies are making their debut on DVD, and they’re well worth your cash consideration. While SE&L will not be reviewing them separately, here are links to our previous theatrical reviews. They more than make our feelings known. Yes, we really loved these films, and with the prospect of commentaries, interviews and other added content, you know our copies will be in the cart come 31 July:
Myopia is Sage's 13th solo album, and with "Sympathy Seed", it promises to plumb the ugly depths of modern-day mankind with a beautiful artistic sensibility.
Black Panther is more than just another Marvel blockbuster; it's a revelation in Western depictions of Africa and African women.
In the wake of the Parkland shootings, Kellen of Troy valiantly protests America's current gun climate with his latest single, "Just a Couple More".
Familial folk-rock collective the Underhill Family Orchestra is at it again with a grooving new single—complete with an album announcement.
Americana trio Young Valley's latest music video is a raw reflection on a stilted love and the aftermath of its end—actual sucker-punch included.
Editors experiment on Violence and produce a pop-focused set of tracks tinged in darkness and depth, but explore too far and overshadow the band's strengths and past successes.
Rupert Clervaux explores the perilous times in which we live through the words of various thinkers and critics over a mix of electro-jazz and leftfield techno.
Robert Polland and company don't give us perfection. With Space Gun, they give us a really good album. Again.
