Did you miss us?  Well we're back with two weeks worth of updates for you!

SOLARIS (1972): Certified Weird!  "To watch a Tarkovsky movie is to be slowly absorbed into the director’s ponderous dreams, until his subconscious almost imperceptibly becomes your waking reality."

THE GUATEMALAN HANDSHAKE (2006): "Although a Guatemalan Handshake sounds like something you’d have to pay extra for at a massage parlor, it’s actually a strange little indie movie that takes the concept of 'quirky and stretches it way past the breaking point."

PAT TREMBLAY'S TOP 10 WEIRD MOVIES LIST: "Although it’s a TV series and not a film, I really dig “Xavier Renegade Angel”, completely mental material that’s extremely funny.  Trippy, surreal, 2-cent philosophy striking down your brain with a hammer of  retarded genius."-PT

MEGA PYTHON VS. GATOROID (2011): With the assistance of guest reviewer Cleverbot!  "366:...the first one you see astounds you with its crazy uniqueness, but the concept wears thin quickly and gets less and less 'awesome' with each new entry you watch.  Cleverbot: Let’s talk about something else."

BEDWAYS (2010): "Sure, there’s plenty of rutting in dingy Berlin locations—one brief bout of penetration and a much longer explicit female masturbation scene amidst tons of softcore posturing—but, this being an art film that feels the need to justify its prurient interests, the hot action is frequently interrupted by characters wondering about God’s existence, quoting Foucalt, and watching an industrial dance band with a lead singer who strikes bizarre poses that may make you spontaneously cry out, 'Now is the time on ‘Sprockets’ when we dance!'"

DOCUMENTARY DOUBLE FEATURE: NIGHTMARES IN RED, WHITE AND BLUE (2009)/AMERICAN GRINDHOUSE (2010): "Nightmares displays clear elements of fanservice (often beautifully arranged, as when the entire Friday the 13th series is cleverly compressed into a 90 second montage of beer, boobs and bloody punishment)."

And from Alfred Eaker's "M22" Avant-Garde Mozart Opera Series:

DON GIOVANNI: "Commercial 21st century preoccupation with self-gratification and hollow sexuality is a not-so-subtle symbolic point, manifested by multiple appearances of nebulous, underwear clad glamor models (Kusej refers to them as Greek fertility goddesses)."

ZAIDE/ADAMA: "The sets also emphasize contrasts: a normal size school desk is juxtaposed against a giant school desk, and a 4th dimension made up of projected video images enhance the tortured milieu."

"The best parts are watching Sly go through the full range of emotions: deadpan, deadpan with raised eyebrow, deadpan with quivering lip. There's also a great sequence where Sly drives his VW Beetle down the interstate for about 20 minutes, staring dramatically through the windshield.."-Joe Bob on A MAN CALLED RAMBO

LE QUATTRO VOLTE (2010): "If someone accidentally wandered into a theater playing Le Quattro Volte and observed the the sequence of events—there’s no plot, per se—without any preparation or background information, they’d be completely confounded by this mystical, dialogue-free film."

IN DEFENSE OF PRETENSE: THE JOYS OF PRETENTIOUS MOVIES: "...out here in the darkened audience, we’re starving for big, wiggy ideas, fearlessly grandiose visions, and filmmakers who aren’t afraid to put their balls to the wall with no fear of looking foolish.  The world needs more pretentious movies, not less."

THE SEVENTH SEAL (1957): "The Seventh Seal has a big, imposing reputation as a masterpiece of world cinema, but if you haven’t seen it yet, you may be surprised to find that most of what you think you know about it is wrong."

More Mad Mozart: IL SOGNO DI SCIPIONE & ASCANIO IN ALBA: "Friba sings Constancy’s amazingly difficult aria, 'Biancheggia in mar scoglio,' while simulating a graphic sex act with Nacoski’s enchanted Scipione pinned to the bridal bed."-AE

Finishing up September:

CARMEL (2009): "...a confusing movie, and its lack of urgency about telling a story combined with disinterest in avoiding dull patches doesn’t serve it well."

THE MANSTER (1959): "Dyneley takes to the lifestyle of a gin-soaked heel like a 1950s mad scientist takes to collecting Tesla coils."

PRIMER (2004): "...although the dense, complicated, and deliberately obtuse plot produces a level of confusion comparable in effect to the weirdest David Lynch movies, I’ve got the sinking feeling that, if you dissect  it carefully, there’s a perfectly logical explanation for everything that happens.  (That complaint makes the 366 project the only outlet in the world to potentially reject Primer because it makes too much sense)."

More Mad Mozart: Odysseys (Irrfahrten): "...not an odyssey for the simpleton, or the timid Mozartean opera goer."-AE

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
