Dangerous Minds is one of my favorite new sites. It's the brainchild of Richard Metzger, the brilliant Brit once behind Disinfo.com pictured at left, and Tara McGinley, a costume designer/stylist (and Metzger's wife). Although the site covers everything from sex to pop culture and "kooks," my favorite is naturally the movie section.
Metzger and friends dig up and dissect the obscure, the weird, and the fantastic. Just a sampling of the website turns up info on an art show featuring "production drawings" and "commissioned work" from Alejandro Jodorowsky's aborted Dune adaptation featuring artists like H.R. Giger, Moebius, and Chris Foss, as well as a deep-cut discussion of the Mexican midnight movie staple Coffin Joe, which Metzger describes as "a rant-prone Nietzschean Übermensch with a top hat, cape and excessively long fingernails." Seriously, can you pass that up?
Sure, some of these movies are things you might never want to see, »
