Link: TRIBECA REVIEW | Movies Within a Movie: The Anthology Documentary “Freakonomics”

Equal parts journalistic exposé and targeted anthropological dissection, the slick anthology production “Freakonomics” makes heavy ideas go down easy.

Sufjan Does the music for a Documentary

A Documentary about the Bowlie Weekender Music Festival — The first 10 minutes feature clips of both Battles and Belle and Sebastian performing live. High Quality stuff.

This has been up for a few days now, but I figured it was about time that I posted it officially. the film is called “(in) determinate”, or “In Medias Rəs”. The process was really rewarding for me. There’s a lot to be said about it, in my opinion, but I’ll leave it at that.

Recently saw the Helvetica documentary, 4 stars. It was amazing, traced modernism and (without mentioning it) the idea of postmodernism (and all the subordinate political, epistemological, and symbolic elements) through the design of type. The style and presentation was fantastic, and the cinematography was perfectly modern to fit the default beauty that is Helvetica.

Also recently saw the movie Across the Universe. In my opinion, one of the worst movie’s I’ve seen this year. And I’ll explain myself. The lighting was terrible. The cinematography could have been good, but wasn’t. The film was set up as theater, and theater can look good on film is the aesthetic of film is taken into account, I do not think the movie did this. The casting was also good, for theater, but fairly bad for both the Beatles covers and the character development the film suggested. I give it 1.5 stars.

Check this old film from the 1970’s out. Sort of predicted and flat screens I guess, my sister showed me.

And also, in honor Sagan Steir and Myself’s film Coelacanth Dream, Here are some stills from David Lynch’s filming of Twin Peaks.

Does God promote Altruism?

Turns out the Appendix DOES have a purpose. Makes total sense, hell, thats what raw foodism’s all about, right?

Happy finals everyone.
