Draquila

by lorebini 15 October 2010

On Sunday, back from a journey through the abandoned (partly because the earthquake) villages of Abruzzo, I went to see Draquila-L’Italia che trema. The movie by Sabina Guzzanti explains with clarity and without rhetoric a frightening situation that a lot of people in Italy is not aware of. Wake up folks! It’s very, very serious…

Exit Through the Gift Shop, Banksy’s movie

by GroS 15 October 2010

Exit Through the Gift Shop is the name of the first feature film directed by Bansky: the movie will be presented at the Sundance, the indipendent film festival of Park City (Utah).
According to the information i was able to collect by blogging around, the movie, which is presented as the first disaster movie about street art,  narrates the story of Tony Guetta, a French filmmaker who loves art and cinema and wants to shoot a documentary about street art, trying to meet Bansky himself. Obviously he will not succeed…

Wild Jonze

It’s simply impossible to keep track of Spike Jonze! Yesterday I was listening to a radio station, RadioPopolare, where they have this nice program named Alaska. I found out that he has eventually finished his new movie – out tomorrow in the U.S. and in few weeks in Italy – called WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE, inspired by a popular children book and very, very promising! In the meantime Jonze has put up a new blog and made a documentary about the author of the book, Maurice Sendak. If you think this is not enough you should know that the MoMA is celebrating the director with an exhibition titled The First 80 Years. You can visit Alaska blog for more information… But how come we have Obama leading the planet instead of Spike Jonze?

Iron Maiden: Flight 666

The other day, me and my friend Nikki were talking about heavy metal movies, I suggest him to watch the movie of Anvil and he recommended me to watch Flight 666. It’s a Rockumentary about the last world tour, 23 concerts, 5 continents in 45 days! But is not an “on the road” kind of movie, they flew a board of the Ed force one, a Boeing 757 with the singer of the band Bruce Dickinson as a pilot… I can’t call it an “eco friendly tour”, over 50000 miles, but more frendly than the Pope for sure! The Maiden are playing around since 1975 and, in the last tour they brought their energy everywhere. It’s something really close to religion for some of the Iron Maiden fans. Some of them wait for all their lifes just to see one of them shows. I cried. Click here to watch the movie. 

ANVIL! the story of Anvil

by GroS 15 October 2010

anvil-manifesto

Do you remeber Anvil? they are a thrash metal band from Canada that in the middle 80’s rocks the world like Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax etc… But they never become “rock stars” like the other bands. The movie is about Steve “Lips” Kudlow and Robb Reiner, their friendship and the dream they will never give up. It’s not only “rock n roll” it’s about heart and balls, about people who chose a way to live no matter what happen. Chlick here to watch the full movie.

Paranoid park

by lorebini 15 October 2010

paranoid park

E’ uscito in Italia il nuovo film di Gus Van Sant che si intitola Paranoid park, cioè lo skatepark più infame di Portland. Il protagonista Alex è un tipo taciturno, timido e fragile. Una sera, una sua bravata causa accidentalmente la morte di un agente di sicurezza. Alex decide di nascondere l’accaduto, ma il peso del dramma non è facile da sopportare… Il film, tratto da un romanzo di Blake Nelson, ha ricevuto un riconoscimento speciale al Festival del Cinema di Cannes di quest’anno ed è secondo la critica uno dei lavori migliori del regista di Elephant. Nella colonna sonora sono presenti brani di Elliot Smith e dei Menomena. Io non l’ho ancora visto, ma direi che promette bene… Check it out!
