From Dig! to Jungletown – how Ondi Timoner is 'kicking the door down' for female filmmakers

19 June 2017 8:35 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Having completed her debut TV series, and with a film about Robert Mapplethorpe in production, the director talks about why she’s drawn to ‘impossible visionaries’

Ondi Timoner still has her first video camera. She called her Flo, and now Flo is in five pieces, stuck to the wall of Timoner’s office in Los Angeles. “I threw her off the roof of Capitol Records,” she explains, “because she stopped recording when I was shooting the Dandy Warhols at the beginning of Dig!.”

Dig! is the documentary that made the director’s name when, in 2004, it won the Sundance grand jury prize. Her original plan had been to make a film about the music industry and what happens when artists get signed to major labels – “the collision of art and commerce” – by following 10 bands for a year. She ended up with two bands, the Dandy Warhols and the Brian Jonestown Massacre, »

The Ultimate Buffy the Vampire Slayer Playlist

10 March 2017 3:55 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Buffy the Vampire Slayer gave the world a hell of a lot. With incomparable dialogue, strong female characters, and complex storylines, it's hands down still one of the best TV shows of all time. Buffy terrified us (remember "Hush"?), made us laugh until it hurt, and made us cry until all we could do was laugh, but it also blessed us with an amazing and amazingly '90s soundtrack for our lives. We've rounded up some of the best songs featured on episodes of the show or by bands who contributed in a big way to the Buffyverse. Here's the listing, and a Spotify playlist is at the end! "Pain," Four Star Mary "Out of This World," Bush "Transylvanian Concubine," Rasputina "It Doesn't Matter," Alison Krauss & Union Station "The Devil You Know (God Is a Man)," Face to Face "Virgin State of Mind," K's Choice "Vivian," Nerf Herder "Wild Horses, »

Ten Best: Music Documentaries

2 February 2017 4:28 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Music documentaries are a genre unto their own – sometimes they give you a glimpse behind the scenes of your favourite band, and sometimes they’re about someone you’ve never heard about who become your favourite band. With that in mind, here’s a rundown of the Top 10 Best Music Documentaries of all time:

Anvil! The Story Of Anvil

An opening of Heavy Metal icons such Slash, Lemmy and Lars Ulrich singing the praises of a band you’ve never heard of makes you think it’s all just a Spinal Tap style spoof. But no, after never quite hitting the big time in the early 80s, Canadian Metal band Anvil have still been plugging away despite the lack of success – at the beginning of the film frontman Steve “Lips” Kudlow is having to make a living delivering school dinners in Toronto! It’s a heart-warming underdog tale of never giving up your dream. »

‘Pear Cider and Cigarettes’: How an Imperfect Life Became an Oscar Contender

1 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For animator/illustrator Robert Valley, the imperfections of life and art magnificently come together in his Oscar-nominated short, “Pear Cider and Cigarettes,” about his friendship with a self-destructive daredevil, who died despite reaching out to the filmmaker for help to get a liver transplant in China.

Valley first wrote about his childhood friend, Techno, in two self-published graphic novels. He was a gifted athlete but, even at a young age, drawn to danger like a moth to the flame. It’s a dark, tragic, passionate account of the American Dream gone bad and the idealism of loyalty and hero worship.

Yet even after the graphic novels, the Vancouver filmmaker (best known for “Aeon Flux,” “Wonder Woman” shorts, and Gorillaz music videos) was compelled to make a short about Techno. He set »
