|85 T9||Doug Stanhope: Beer Hall Putsch (2013) - Aug 29, 2013
"Not as laugh-out-loud hilarious as his others, but definitely his most compelling tirade put to video. Stanhope is as loud and crass as ever, but his warped routine's serious, disturbing undertones have taken center stage. There are several bits that will leave you confused as to whether you should laugh or stare, mouth agape with morbid fascination, particularly the bit about his mother's suicide. It's surely one of the greatest bits in stand-up, though I doubt it will make many laugh."
|90 T10||The Red and the White (1967) - Nov 16, 2010
"Both conceptually and technically stunning, this is one of the bleakest war films I've ever seen. Both sides commit atrocities, often within the same shot. New characters are rarely named; they'll be dead soon, anyway. The camera winds along the banks of the Volga like death itself, following people until they die, then leeching onto surrounding survivors until they die as well. Everyone is linked in a seamless stream of brutality. War, fuck yeah."
|85 T9||Repo Man (1984) - Jan 11, 2011
"Harry Dean Stanton, Emilio Estevez, 80's everything, sex, violence, drugs, aliens, a car that flies and vaporizes people, Black Flag, an Iggy Pop theme, sticking it to the man, goddamn-dipshit-Rodriguez-gypsy-dildo-punks. Lemme think of something else that I want in a film - oh wait I can't."
|20 T1||Feeding the Doves (1896) - Aug 18, 2010
"A few glaring editing and pacing issues prevent this avant-garde noir arthouse classic from becoming one of my favorite films, but the acting was so incredible that you'd be absolutely soulless to not have had your heartstrings tugged by this benchmark of cinema. In it's conclusion, we realize we are all the doves waiting to be fed. In Jesus' name, Amen."
