A raw (but refined (but raw)) short film by Felix and Paul featuring Tanya Tagaq.
Watch Tungijuq (MPEG-4).
TwitchFilm has more. Definitely NSFW.
Fantastic stuff from Goodiebag.
(via Second Cinema)
Stupidity can be quite scary.
In 2571 in the heap of crushed stone among the ruins of that not determined turn blue planet it was found video cassette. The fact that you intend to see, has to it no relation. This is completely different record.
Now available in the gorgeously new De-Mastered Lo-Fi High Definition Pixel Stretch Deluxe Limited Special Edition Platinum Series Edition (With Bonus Material).
Watch Agamemnon Counterpart.
Saw this at This American Life’s simulcast in a theaters nationwide, a couple weeks ago. Dark humor at its very best.
WHAT WOULD JESUS BUY? follows Reverend Billy and the Stop Shopping Choir as they go on a cross-county mission to save the Holidays from the Shopocalypse: the end of mankind from consumerism, over-consumption and the fires of eternal debt! The Shopocalypse is upon us…Who will be Saved?
One of the great American movies available in full for US viewers.
A big WTF!!!!! What moron does this?
One of my favorite shorts of the year. One of the most gorgeous films, whether it be shorts or features, I have ever seen. Every shot tells its own little story.
A man comes back alive, in a post Katrina world, to lead a bunch of lost souls back to sea to meet their destiny. An great and important story told in the most beautiful way.
A classic, don’t miss this.
Some information about the project.
- Court 13 (the DVD is available for sale at their online store)

- Filmmaker Magazine mention
(If anyone has more links about the production, pass it on)
Powerful essay on the recent acts of cowardice and heroism in Mumbai.
I can’t possibly post anything cooler than this. A man sacrifices his face in the name of…videoblogging?
A delicate and lovely dense macabre exploring one of the darkest of human aberrant notions: how easy it would be to poison a person. Domonkos masterfully mixes old and macabre footage providing a gentle chill to the complacent. Is that a real photo of a corpse mixed in with his lovely animation? The thought is there for those who choose to think it.
Watch it. (Quicktime)
Amy Goodman talks about the bailout.
JUAN GONZALEZ: Bob Scheer, the issue also of this rush to pass this legislation—I’m reminded somewhat of the PATRIOT Act after 9/11: an immense tragedy occurs, and immediately they try to rush through legislation without many of the members of Congress even having a handle as to what it really contains.
ROBERT SCHEER: Oh, it’s absolutely outrageous, and we can’t let them get away with it. I mean, consider that Paulson was the head of Goldman Sachs, OK? He knew about credit swaps. He knew about hybrid instruments. He knew all of this stuff. And now he’s the guy that says Congress has to give him a blank check, it has to be a pure bill? Nonsense!
This is our money. Why isn’t this money used to help people who are going to lose their houses? You miss two, three payments, and they’re going to foreclose on you; then they say, “Well, we hope the banks will work out new agreements.” Nonsense! Do a freeze on foreclosures. Stop the bleeding. Have a year to let it settle, and force the banks to come to agreements.
