Venom - Mike Mitchel
Huh, so That’s how the mouth works.
First Cousin Once Removed
Edwin Honig: "I know there’s a past and I know that I lived in it and that I gave it up, to live only in the present.
A documentary on the loss of memory by one of my favorite documentarians, Alan Berliner. All of Berliner’s films have been about his own personal/familial history, so over the years you feel like you know the guy as well as his relatives. Watching his “first cousin once removed” Edwin Honig’s memory dissolve in a mashup of visits over the course of five (?) years made me feel like I was watching my grandfathers and their own struggles with dementia & memory loss… the main difference being that they weren’t/aren’t world renowned poets who had the ability to express themselves in incredibly profound ways.
David Holzman’s Diary
Pepe: “Your life is not a very good script”
Probably one of the first faux-documentaries, it critiques the whole Cinema-Verite movement of the 60’s while also being an awesome look into what life was like in 1967 New York City (Ceiling Fans in subways!). The original scripted “vlog” (ugh).
The video below is an excerpt of a pretty interesting piece of history: what a night of watching television was like in 1967. Except it’s all 1 frame per shot.
The Kings of Summer
Biaggio: I met a dog the other day that taught me how to die.
Beautifully filmed coming of age indie comedy about a bunch of buddies doing the kind of stuff i never did as a kid. Or even now. But i get it. Woods. Trees. Building stuff.
I get it.
