Just Cause (1995)

A liberal Harvard professor opposed to capital punishment is persuaded to go to Florida to investigate a conviction.

Politically ambiguous crime drama with a plot with some unconvincing twists.

Rising Sun (1993)

At the offices of a Japanese corporation, during a party, a woman, who's evidently a professional mistress, is found dead, apparently after some rough sex.

Convoluted whodunnit with a sloppy plot, mildly entertaining.

First Lines: Saul Bellow - The Adventures of Augie March

I am an American, Chicago born—Chicago, that somber city—and go at things as I have taught myself, free-style, and will make the record in my own way: first to knock, first admitted; sometimes an innocent knock, sometimes a not so innocent.

New Stuff: The Devil and Daniel Johnston

As a longtime fan of Daniel Johnston I needed to watch this docuemtary about him.

New Stuff: Peter Evans Quintet

I saw Peter Evans live in Amsterdam in a different combo, and due to a recent large article in The Wire I thought I'd get his most recent album.

New Stuff: Tintin

I thought I'd start checking up with this classic comic, which I somehow missed reading in my childhood.

Ice Age: The Meltdown (2006)

This time around the Ice Age is over and is starting to melt, which will destroy the animals' valley, so they must unite and warn everyone about the situation.

Thoroughly entertaining children's movie.

First Lines: Robert Graves - I, Claudius

I, Tiberius Claudius Drusus Nero Germanicus This-that-and-the-other (for I shall not trouble you yet with all my titles) who was once, and not so long ago either, known to my friends and relatives and associates as "Claudius the Idiot," or "That Claudius," or "Claudius the Stammerer," or "Clau-Clau-Claudius" or at best as "Poor Uncle Claudius," am now about to write this strange history of my life; starting from my earliest childhood and continuing year by year until I reach the fateful point of change where, some eight years ago, at the age of fifty-one, I suddenly found myself caught in what I may call the "golden predicament" from which I have never since become disentangled.

Neco z Alenky (1988)

Animated adaptation of Lewis Carroll's novel 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland'.

Fascinating, bizarre, surreal masterpiece with the director summing up his life's work in feature length for the first time.

William S. Burroughs: The Cat Inside

  All you cat lovers, remember all the millions of cats mewling through the world's rooms lay all their hopes and trust in you, as the little mother cat at the Stone House laid her head in my hand, as Calico Jane put her babies in my suitcase, as Fletch jumped into James's arms and Ruski rushed towards me chittering with joy.
