THE FILMS OF KENNETH ANGER, VOL. 1


Ding ding ding! Excited to hear about this one.

I love Fantoma. They're easily my favorite cult label, although I wish they had more polish.

I did, Dre. A birthday present to myself... haven't looked at it yet.

Drew - the SUPERMAN thing - we must discuss. I have a feeling we agree on the Donner Cut. It feels like "revenge" to me, and more like the world's biggest deleted scene rather than a coherent work. A shame really.
Aw, crap!

Oh, they're going on the stack, which means some time in the next six months.

Having watched the entire Superman set, well, my thoughts are on line, but I did like how Donner's cut started. It's a much smarter intro. But Superman II is probably the most overrated comic book film ever. Partly due to the paucity of the genre until the 21st century.

Interesting viewing day.

Image

Loved it. Wish it was three times longer.

Michael Bleiden, who wrote and starred in MELVIN GOES TO DINNER, is the director of this concert film that also makes extensive use of an interview. It's not an interview with Zach, though; it's an interview with "Seth Galifianakis," introduced to us as Zach's identical twin brother. Brian Unger, of THE DAILY SHOW fame, conducts the interview, and as the outtakes on the disc prove, it was no easy feat.

A friend of mine is obsessed with the story of Oscar Levant, a brilliant pianist who was also one of the most renowned wits of his day. He was taken off TV in the '50s for making comments like "Now that Marilyn Monroe's converted to Judaism, Arthur Miller can finally eat her."

On '50s television. Awesome.

Levant cracked up repeatedly over the years, and for some reason, Zach reminds me of my impression of Levant. Zach's great on the piano, playing constantly as he's talking during his shows, and the way he approaches a joke or interaction with the audience or playing a character is pretty much a complete original. And part of what makes him so unique is the way he flirts with mental illness as a running theme in his humor. And it's thrilling because you're not entirely sure it's a joke. In order to be as good on the piano as Zach is, as natural and at home as he is, it takes endless hours of practice, and I can't help thinking that Zach must have caused massive frustration for someone when he chose comedy as a career instead of music. The character that Zach plays onstage, the comic persona he's crafted for himself, strikes me as a shambling 21st century riff on Levant, smart humor by a frighteningly smart guy.

For comedy fans, this is a must.

What can you say about a film that features Shemp Howard as Sinbad?

Maria Montez is gorgeous, a Hollywood starlet in the best Hollywood tradition, and there's a reason she was known for a while as the "Queen of Technicolor." She was worth looking at in color. Absofreakinlutely.

The movie? Not so good. It's beautifully preserved here, and if you love early Technicolor epics, this is worth a look. This is absolutely average '40s Hollywood fare, and there are some fun swordfights and some great music and it all looks candy-colored and lush. It's just that there's really nothing more you can say about it than that. There's a new Robert Osborne introduction and the original trailer, but not much else. If you're going to pick this one up, make sure you're a fan.

One of the reasons I've been thinking about my collection is because I'm trying to reorganize it in terms of how my office is set up. I'm physically moving my collection around, trying to put specific shelves in specific places.

There's one bookcase in particular that I'm calling "The Essentials."

This is where I'm planning to keep the titles that are... well, it's sort of self-explanatory, isn't it? There are DVDs that I want to keep. Period. I want to always have these particular films at hand where I can watch them when I want to. These are the things that you would see if you could open up my head and look at the stuff that's hardwired in there. These are the movies that are important to me.

I spent a good chunk of this afternoon moving things around. It gave Toshi a project to help me with, and it was good because I was able to consolidate some space as I got things organized. I went through about a third of the overall discs in the house, and I've already filled up most of the bookshelf. These are films I literally don't think I could ever part with, and it's going to take up well over a full bookcase.

I love organizing things loosely. I never put things in alphabetical order, and I don't organize things by director. I have one bookcase that's just horror movies, but in no particular order... a half a closet that's just for TV on DVD. There's a section where I put all the Warner and Fox and Universal catalog titles that have poured out in the last few years. But considering how bad my obsession is with owning films, I love the way my room sends other OCD movie freaks into fits as they try to ascertain the rhyme or reason of it all.

Anyone want to share pictures of your DVD collections?

C'mon... post 'em here.

I'm thinking of making it a book, actually.

That one bookshelf, reviewed in depth. Why they're great. Why they're on my shelf. How this jigsaw puzzle works of what someone calls "essential" to them. Part of it is when you saw something or who you saw it with, part of it is the film, part of it is your memories of things around the film... good or bad conversations you've had... something you read about it... behind the scenes stories... and all those things combined play into the way each of us processes what we watch.

My essentials aren't going to be the same as yours.

There's going to be overlap, sure.

But the differences will be the things that really define us.

Now, having said that, I'm going to go watch another movie while I work on this review for THE LOOKOUT that I want to post tonight.

I think I'm going to put on this documentary, COWBOY DEL AMOR.

Or Disney's ROBIN HOOD.

Depends what the platter lands on, I suppose...

You mean the model of the projector?

It's an InFocus X3, dirt cheap but very bright and gives a great image if properly calibrated.

It's has a native 1024*768 resolution.

In the room, which is totally darkened, projected on about a 100¨, the picture quality is very nice. However, I'm switching later this year for an HD one. This will serve until I've decided on a format.

Those "Now Playing" stands can be found in lots of places online (including Ebay). Cost like 20 bucks or something. They give real character and look cool.

Wow. Geek city. I always inevitably keep my collection in alphabetical order because it's the great equalizer, especially if you have extremely eclectic tastes like I do, and you don't have to spend time agonizing over whether 'Blueberry' should be classified as a western or a 'cult classic'.

Having said that, I must admit I do keep a separate shelf of my favorite directors films alphabetized by director - John Ford, Takeshi Kitano, David Lynch, Anthony Mann, Orson Welles, John Woo, etc etc. AND I do keep all of my John Wayne movies together because I worship the Duke.

For the rest, I generally don't have to worry about whether a movie is WORTHY of being in my main collection because only movies that I really love and want to watch over and over make it in in the first place.

Since I have to BUY all my DVDs, NetFlix is a great resource for previewing things before I purchase them. Using Netflix to preview and then Deep Discount DVD to make my purchases has saved me a TON of money this last year and all it has required is a little patience.

That's not to say I wouldn't love to figure out how to get free DVD's in the mail just for writing reviews. I've written some great reviews but never seem to put them in places where they get much attention, plus I tend to review old shit that no one cares about. Ho hum. Guess I'll just have to write a book.


Blah blah blah. Sorry. My brain is fried today. I'm really enjoying this forum though. Cheers.
But I'd RATHER watch another movie...

I'll put some pictures up soon. Right now, I've got some other stuff to write up. As I do, I'll be watching MY SUPER EX-GIRLFRIEND, which our Blockbuster Online queue just coughed up.

That's why I could never be a professional critic. I just can't sit through shitty movie after shitty movie. It's kind of sad to see guys like Clarence Beaks and Smilin' Jack Ruby get so ground down that they start hating everything.

Honestly, I don't think that's what happens. Maybe, maybe, their knives get sharper, and maybe they suffer fools less gladly, so something that is deeply mediocre gets tenderized Rocky-style. But I wouldn't say they, or most of the critics I know, grow to hate movies. And both of those guys simply moved on, and with Jack, it was on to stuff like the movie he wrote that opened today.

If we're grading on a sliding scale, then this isn't awful by general Hollywood standards, but it's a disaster when you consider this is the director of GHOSTBUSTERS.

Oh, Ivan, man, you're breaking my heart.

I laughed once. The first time Luke Wilson and Uma Thurman have sex, she destroys his bed and the wall behind it with her super-fucking. Literally. And as she rolls off of him, she says, "Don't worry. I'll get you a new one."

His answer: "What? A bed or a penis?"

One laugh. Otherwise, it's fairly dire. The sad part is that Uma's too strong a woman to be playing these neurotic "I don't know what I want" characters in a film like this or like PRIME.

Bad. Perfect as a rental because I can happily send it back and never think of it again. Thanks, Blockbuster.

Not as much as you probably think. The construction of the room (shelves, drop-down ceiling, carpet, paint, lights, elevated platform with built-in bass) set me back probably between $2-3k. Did all the work myself along with a friend of mine who's better at that stuff than I am.

Equipment and DVD's are a lot more of course, especially since I'm a European and DVD's are quite a bit more expensive here than in the US.

Thanks for all the compliments guys, but I'd really like to see pictures of someone else's collection. Anybody else wanna share?

I'm glad to hear he's had some real success. Honestly, I was reading his CHUD reviews almost to the bitter end, and it felt like something snapped. I was worried he'd bagged it and was working an office job somewhere.

By the way, I like your reviews on Collider.

I"m lovin' this place. Hope it remains a hot spot.

I'm a dvd columnist myself, and have a similar set-up to Moriarty's with the daily mail dropping off a number of discs every day. And because i'm not about to re-organize every damn day, I've resorted to loose categories with a shelf reserved for new stuff. I have a 'Masters of Horror' section, with each of the Anchor Bay discs alongside each respective director's films; the classics section, with all of the Fox Film Noir lined up; 70s cinema; television, and an area for all things comedy (Mr. Show, stand-up, etc.)
