Womanizing Brit Charlie Cartwright is about to conduct Worldwind Tour #225, a nine country, eighteen day bus trip from London to Rome. He uses these tours in large part to catch up with his... See full summary »
A series of 5-minute line animations (drawn in the rough style and with the minimalist plots of David Lynch's The Angriest Dog in the World comic strip) featuring an angry and violent Neanderthal, and his family and neighbors.
An undercover FBI agent falls in love with a recently widowed mafia wife seeking to start her life over after her husband's murder and who is also pursued by a libidinous mafia kingpin seeking to claim her for himself.
In this visual essay style documentary, intimate audio of journalist Michael Azerrad's interviews with Kurt Cobain is played over more recently photographed footage of Cobain's Washington state homes and haunts.
It certainly takes an acquired taste to see the breadth of opinion in this movie. One commenter has expressed that the movie, as a documentary, is one-sided and promotes only one view of the Coachella festival, which is simply inaccurate.
The Coachella film is primarily concerned with, not the benefits of going or not going to a concert, but the different experiences available to Coachella fans. The breadth of opinion lies, not in whether or not the ticket money is worth it, but in which bands one would prefer to see.
The case in point is the Oasis interview juxtaposed with another artist's interview (his name escapes me). The two interviews, zipped together, provide very different opinions of what a live musical experience is: Is it a political movement? Or is it an opiate? In my opinion, it's one of the best parts of the movie.
Based on the sheer variety of bands, anyone who complains about the musical experience at Coachella must have been simply too lazy to walk to another stage. And the film reflects the same cornucopia of genre: twee, noise, punk, pop, rap, avant-garde... you name it.
POINT: If, the last time someone asked what kind of music you like, you truthfully answered "every kind" or "all kinds," you owe it to yourself to enjoy this movie.
