Last night Rachel and I watched “The Unbinding”, the new documentary from the Newkirks. If you’re interested in haunted objects, I highly recommend this one. Available on Prime.

It’s May 1st and you know what that means, don’t you? Time to watch The Wicker Man!

Something made me think of Lodge 49 today and I want to take this opportunity to recommend that weird and wonderful and tragically cancelled show to everyone - especially those who have an interest in occulture and/or love for slackers and losers.

Once (2007) causes me such exquisite emotional pain that I have to put a few years between each viewing.

I’ve finished all of the films in Steve McQueen’s Small Axe anthology and I can’t recommend them highly enough.

I’ve now watched the first two films in Steve McQueen’s Small Axe anthology and both have been exceptional. But Lovers Rock … that was something special. If I tried to explain the plot to you (there isn’t much to it!) you would never believe it would work. Yet I was entranced. The “Silly Games” scene in particular was pure magic. I agree with this LA Times article (which gives the background to “Silly Games”) which calls it is “one of the most patient and loving celebrations of music ever captured on film.”
