It was one of the mixed blocks over on Central Avenue, the blocks that are not yet all negro.

End Game (2006)

A Secret Service agent and a news reporter investigate the conspiracy behind the assassination of the President.

Not so bad conspiracy thriller with some production value, a good cast and - an unlikely plot.

Betty Adewole

ph: Kerry Hallihan

New Stuff: Merzbow/Mats Gustafsson/Balazs Pandi/Thurston Moore Cuts of Guilt, Cuts Deeper

Now that's a collaboration I certainly wouldn't want to miss.

Antonina Vasylchenko

Inhale (2010)

A couple goes to dangerous lengths to find a lung donor for their daughter.

Intense and in the end harrowing thriller with a complex sociocritical message.

New Stuff: Mumford & Sons

I got this album specifically on Ursula's request.

Tatyana Usova

Sheitan (2006)

A group of youngsters go out to a disco late one night and accidentally run into a shepherd who has prepared himself for a night of Satanic worship.

Over-the-top and weird low budget horror thriller that successfully plays with the audience's expectations, but somehow doesn't add up to be a coherent movie. 

Kristine Zandmane

New Stuff: Cream

Their debut album.

Zhanna Tikhobrazova

In Her Skin (2009)

When a pretty 15-year-old Rachel goes missing, the police dismiss the incident as a runaway, but her parents don't believe it.

Intense drama with an excellent cast that explores the tragedy from the points of view of all involved.

Miranda Kerr

New Stuff: Holly Herndon

A recommendation from The Wire.
