ANOTHER EARTH: Here’s a neglected science fiction themed indie that deserves a reappraisal.
SHOLAY: THE MAKING OF A CLASSIC BY ANUPAMA CHOPRA: In the rarefied world of Bollywood SHOLAY is possibly the most iconic and influential film in existence.
PURGATORY: 1998 was the year of Steven Spielberg’s SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, a war movie that allegedly broke new ground in its depiction of the ugliness of combat. Few seem to know, then or now, about the Russian made-for-TV movie PURGATORY (CHISTILISCHCHE) from the same year, which far outdid Spielberg’s film in grit, gore and sheer unpleasantness.


New Commentary!


REMEMBERING THAT WHICH IS BETTER FORGOTTEN: HOT DOG...THE MOVIE AND HAMBURGER: THE MOTION PICTURE: HOT DOG…THE MOVIE and HAMBURGER: THE MOTION PICTURE are two not-very-distinguished products of the “raunch-com” cycle of ANIMAL HOUSE and PORKY’S inspired sex comedies.
