I only recently noticed that so far I haven't any titles from Arcane Device, so I decided to buy this album.

Emily Dickinson: Quite Empty Quite at Rest

Quite Empty Quite at Rest

Quite empty, quite at rest,
The Robin locks her Nest, and tries her Wings.
She does not know a Route
But puts her Craft about
For rumored Springs
She does not ask for Noon
She does not ask for Boon,
Crumbless and homeless, of but one request
The Birds she lost

Scott Walker: 30 Century Man (2006)

A documentary on the influential musician Scott Walker.

Insightful portrait of a former pop idol as the reclusive avantgarde sound artist he is today.

Drielle Valeretto

AVPR: Aliens vs Predator - Requiem (2007)

Warring alien and predator races descend on a small town, where unsuspecting residents must band together for any chance of survival.

A disappointing mess even for die-hard fans of the sub-genre.

Flor Gubler

Honey (2003)

Honey is a sexy, tough music video choreographer who shakes up her life after her mentor gives her an ultimatum: sleep with him or be blacklisted within their industry.

Mostly acceptable, if you're a fan of the star who plays quite well, but otherwise the plot follows well-trodden paths.

William S. Burroughs: The Cat Inside

I don't remember exactly when Ruski first came into the house. I remember sitting in a chair by the fireplace with the front door open and he saw me from fifty feet away and ran up, giving the special little squeaks I never heard from another cat, and jumped into my lap, nuzzling and purring and putting his little paws up to my face, telling me he wanted to be my cat.
But I didn't hear him.

Sea Devils (1953)

A a fisherman-turned-smuggler on the isle of Guernsey, agrees to transport a beautiful woman to the French coast in the year 1800.

Despite all the credits this is a quite dull-plotted historical spy romance, basically a boat sailing back and forth to an island till all misunderstandings are resolved.

The Alphabet Killer (2008)

A young woman detective is on the trace of a serial killer who chooses his victims by alphabet, and her obsession is driving her to the edge of insanity.

Although ambitious and well played in the lead this is altogether a quite mediocre and unsurprising serial killer crime story.

William S. Burroughs: The Cat Inside

May 3, 1982. This white cat would drive me insane if I had to live in the same apartment with it under my feet, rubbing against my leg, rolling on its back in front of me, leaping up on the table to paw at the typewriter. He's on top of the TV, he's on the chopping block, he's in the sink,he's pawing the telephone.
I am leaning against the sideboard having a drink. I think he is outside, then he jumps onto the sink and sticks his face an inch from mine. Finally I put him out and close the an Arab boy who knows he is being naughty knows you will put him out sooner or later. No fuss, he just goes, fades down an alley in the gathering dusk and whisk, he is gone, leaving me feeling vaguely guilty.
