Act of Faith (2012)
A short one written by Allan Moore? This must be something! And it really is... "Act of faith" runs only eighteen minutes or so, but it will certainly satisfy your needs. Of course, only if you like dark humor and irony - this are the key words to this little masterpiece. The tension here is really unbearable, so forget about boredom. I won't describe the plot, because that would ruin the pleasure that this flick is going to give you. I'll just say that it is sexy, a little kinky and very inspiring. I'm looking forward to see another work from Moore and director Mitch Jenkins. If" Jimmy's end" is as good as this one, it's going to be real fun!
Il mio West (1998)
Only because of Bowie
This spaghetti-western is worth watching only because of one thing. O.K., maybe two: the stars of the project are Harvey Keitel and David Bowie. During the first half of the movie we're dealing with some strange combination of a cowboy story, comedy (not very bright, I must say) and... family movie. Well, it's boring and it reminded me of TV series called, yes, yes , "Dr, Quinn". Something interesting starts to happen when Bowie gets on the stage, but for his appearance we have to wait for a fifty minutes (fifty three, to be more specific). If you're a fan of the "rock'n'roll chameleon", you'll see this one anyway. In case you don't admire the gentleman, you should forget about "Il mio west" - it's the kind of a flick that makes you think: why the hell someone decided to film this?
A young Japanese couple on their way to auto-destruction. Pretty disturbing (specially for a normal viewer) s&m themed short movie. Realisation is professional, so don't worry, that you'll be forced into some non-budget crap. I should also note one important thing: the shocking side here tries to carry some content about loneliness and psychic pain. I liked it, though the dialogs made me feel a little uncomfortable: too pretentious, even sometimes pathetic in their affected, emotional way. That's a shame, because the whole thing could be a real knock-out, telling us about the real despair, that leads to insanity. Still, worth seeing, not only for the blood-thirsty gore fans.
Type O Negative: After Dark (1998)
A collection of Type O Negative videos ("Black no. 1", "Christian woman" x 2, "My girlfriend's girlfriend", "Love you to death" & "Cinnamon girl") with additional backstage footage and some excerpts from interviews. Also, there are some clips from the live performances. If yo're a TON fan, you simply have to see this. We've got normal Type O sense of humour and quotes from... Coal Chamber fans, who dislike the best doom metal band of all the time (what a jerks!). What's more, we've got Peter Steele (R.I.P.) telling us about his "philosophy of life" (P.S.:I'm really happy_ Interveiwer: Why?_ P.S.:Because I know someday I will die...). And the extended version of "Christian woman" - just perfect. Watch out for the "Jesus Christ looks like me" moment. It makes me laugh any time I see this.
Prince: The Hits Collection (1993)
A selection of Prince greatest hits. Released in 1993. You won't find here pieces like "Purple Rain" or "When doves cry", but still it's very good, representative choice of his videos. Sound & vision for songs like "Kiss", "Little Red Corvette" and "Raspberry Beret" - what more would any Prince's fan desire? Also, You can find here things like "Controversy", "Cream" or "Peach", which are forgotten in most of the TV stations. The only thing that would be better is the full compilation of singles by the artist, but it's not that simple, as You know. So..., just sit back and enjoy! The one and only, he doesn't wanna be king,)
His name is Prince. And he's funky!
Prince live in Las Vegas - rather cameral performance, but if you're a fan of this artist, then you'll be more than pleased. We won't hear here the well known hits like "Little Red Corvette", "Kiss" or "When Doves Cry", but for me that was totally O.K. I admire Prince no matter if he's funky, if he plays pop, disco, rock or jazz - it's always the same great Prince. The only thing that I can complain about is the filming - for some reason the video is overexposured and edited in a windows-movie-maker style. And those horrible visualizations - who made those? But nevermind the bad realization - the music is still very enjoyable. So is the show.
The Cure: Trilogy (2003)
Pornography Disintegration Bloodflowers
The Cure at their best, performing the material from their greatest albums. "Pornography", "Disintegration" and "Bloodflowers" altogether, what gives us over three hours of beautiful, melancholic music. Songs like "Siamese Twins", "Strange Day", "Lovesong", "Lullaby" or "There Is No If..." still are giving creeps to the listener, thankfully to Smith's lyrics. As a bonus we also get two songs from the "Kiss me, Kiss me, Kiss me" album, that is "If Only Tonight We Could Sleep" and "The Kiss". Robert Smith and his colleagues are in a very good shape, so this "triple-feature" is highly recommended for every Cure-fan. As one of them I simply cannot give any other score then 10 out of 10. Just remember: the spiderman is always hungry.
Bauhaus: Gotham (1999)
Although I'm a big fan of the group, I must say I was a bit disappointed by their reunion concert video called "Gotham". It isn't that they do not play their songs with involvement. It's the bad editing and filming that causes watching this one not so pleasant as it could be. It looks as the makers of the documentary we're thinking only how to get this over and go home. Great music is presented in a horrible TV look-a-like manner and that's the only reason I cannot give this one any better score than 7 out of 10. I wish I could, but I just can't. It's a shame that Murphy & Co. haven't choose any better filmmakers, who would properly present their reunion performance. Bela Lugosi's undead, but the director and editor should be buried six feet underground.
The Image (1969)
If you're a Bowie-fan...
This black & white British short film is interesting for one reason. One of the characters, boy from a picture, is played by young David Bowie. It was a time when he was not yet known to the audiences around the world, long time before he became the alien messiah, Ziggy Stardust. The plot here is very simple, but I must admit that Michael Armstrong's movie is quite climatic and still watchable. An artist paints in his house a portrait of a young boy. In the next moment boy appears behind the window and then - in the house, in front of a painter. An artist starts to panic and the kills the one he created. And that's all. Or maybe I should say: almost all... If you're a Bowie-fan like me, this one is a must-see, otherwise - don't bother yourself with seeking for a copy.
An Invitation to a Nudist Camp
Legendary Herschell Gordon Lewis, future "godfather of gore", invites us to a nudist colony. "Goldilocks & the three bares" is a mixture of comedy and musical, in which the whole (very simple indeed, I must say) plot is just a pretext for showing a viewer a gallery of naked bodies. In the early 1960's that must've been a taboo. Today..., well, we cannot even call this one a sexploitation flick. It's just a silly trifle that may be useful for some anthropologists. What is valuable here for me, it's the spirit of the times - those haircuts, stylish cars, those tender songs that still can make you smile. If you're into this kind of old-fashioned garbage, you probably will be satisfied with Lewis' work. Bad acting, poorly edited - that's the stuff for connoisseurs.
