“My new feature length documentary Breadcrumb Trail is about Slint and the Louisville music culture they emerged from. It includes footage going back to the early 1990s that I shot when repeatedly driving up from Athens, GA to Louisville to try to chase rumors of what they guys were up to. Over the years I tracked down more stories about them, then began filming interviews with each of the band members and their contemporaries. We also unearthed some unseen/uncirculated footage from their few live performances as well as the writing and arranging of Spiderland.”

Breadcrumb Trail torrent reviews
(it) wrote: Spike Lee's war picture is about American black soliders fighting in Italy in the second WW 1944. Actually it's really about an American solider who picks up the head of a statue, meets and form a bond with an Italian child. MASA is wonderfully shot especially the battle scenes and Lee is never shy of showing his characters going through racial discrimination and unfairness. The film is murky though and some scenes tend to drag on but dispite all that I still was satisfied by the overall result.

(ca) wrote: This documentary, Jesus Camp by Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady is about three kids experience in an Evangelical Christian summer camp that is run by Becky Fischer. The camps main purpose is to help strengthen the belief of Evangelical Christian children.The whole documentary followed and interviewed three kids who were attending the camp as well as interviewing Becky Fischer on her thoughts of her religion. Everyone who attended the camp seemed believed very strongly in what the camp was about and it showed these people as very dedicated. Throughout the film, many people such as Becky, Ted Haggard (an evangelical pastor), and Lou Engle (a religious leader), about their religious beliefs and and why they believe children are so important to their religion. Also at certain parts of the movie it would jump to Mike Papantonio, an attorney who is a radio talk show host and he answers questions that people ask him on the show. I found these scenes important because it shows a different view of the same religion as Mike is Christian, but he is not Evangelical. This was helpful because it gave me more than one view on a situation. There were also scenes the I felt made no scenes or didn't really make a point in the documentary. One example of this would be one of the multiple scenes of a road or highway and a news broadcast was read or George Bush talking. To me these scenes just feel random and out of place. This documentary helped me personally to understand that there are many different Christian groups are very different even though they all believe that Jesus is God. The way this documentary was put together was alright as there were random scenes that made no sense and sometimes the transitions were quite abrupt. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to find out another view of Christianity or just interested in the way some people think. The idea is interesting and it did give me insight to how some Christians think but overall I would give this a 3/5.

(de) wrote: Prince of the City (1981) ???Emotionally powerful film about narcotics detective in N.Y.C. who puts himself, and his family, at life threatening danger when he tries to be straight in world full of police corruption. Raw, gritty, intense, unpredictable, anchored by totally authentic New York feel and a super-charged performance by Treat Williams. Overall impact is muted by the film's sheer length. Outstanding screenplay co-written by director Sidney Lumet.
(kr) wrote: Came from the experience after "Annie Hall" in chemistry and some charms, Woody Allen's genuine best work done some emphasizing while under the same length with the charm growing at the processing speed, bringing up social points - a usual trait for these kind of films, occasionally showing some matching sense of humor, putting some energy to the spirit and the city of Manhattan in a black and white shine. The way Allen puts those pieces together is what made this his best work in an artistic form he usually take a liking of trying out in his films. (A-)(Full review coming soon)

(br) wrote: Dustin Hoffman is Michael Dorsey, a versatile character actor whose at-work temper has led to a struggle in finding roles in New York City. His last chance of working in the city is in a hospital-set soap opera, but they're looking for someone a little more feminine. Thus, Dorothy Michaels is born. Did you like how I established the premise? Don't worry, the film doesn't establish it like that. If I hadn't known the film was, on general grounds, a drag comedy, I would've been shocked when Dustin Hoffman first appears as a surprisingly convincing woman. I never noticed how delicate his face is. I should refrain from comments like that, and it will be obvious later in the review. Not all of the jokes are, "Look at Dustin, trying to be a woman and failing." In fact, because Dustin's character (or an extension of himself, as he... er, Michael words it) is so versatile of an actor, there is no quirky transition to the little daily rituals of being a woman. The awkwardness cuts much deeper than that. Michael Dorsey grows insecure about how he, or Dorothy rather, looks, and, despite representing strong female empowerment in the soap more than anyone else in the cast, is not always ready to stand up for herself. Tootsie, among other things, studies how women want to be treated, in the setting of early-1980s New York. In one scene, fellow actress Julie (Jessica Lange) explains to Dorothy how she wants a man to walk up to her and invite her to bed, without any nonsense. Michael does just that to Julie, and then Julie splashes wine into his face. It's for comedic effect, but the scene hangs around long enough for me to wonder, "Why did she not like that?" Although the soap director (Dabney Coleman) and Julie's father (Charles Durning) feel that way, the film's atmosphere never implies that. Everything is put into perspective, and I really love that. It takes Dustin Hoffman in drag to send a good-vibe feminist message.If that doesn't seem like your cup of tea, it doesn't need to be for you to enjoy the film. Tootsie centers around Dustin Hoffman, whose fiery energy enlivens every scene he is in. Sometimes, he is committed to being Dorothy, and other times, he is committed to being Michael. I recognize Dustin's suffering from too many commitments. By the end of the film, the line, "She misses you," in response to Julia saying, "I miss Dorothy," has deeper meaning, because Michael, the actor, is separating himself from Dorothy. Thus, Dustin is fully committed to being Michael, while retaining what he found as Dorothy. God, I am confused. I love Hoffman's acting, okay? Bill Murray, as Hoffman's roommate, deals the goods with his everlasting deadpan wit. So does George Gaynes, who basically plays himself as an old-time soap opera star and humiliates himself in wooing Dorothy until Bill Murray walks in on Gaynes and Dorothy. The ongoing relationship between Michael and Sandy (Teri Garr) is rich in humour and drama. Initially platonic, Michael acts sexually when Sandy caught him undressing himself. Unbeknownst to Sandy, he was undressing only to re-dress in one of her dresses. Nevertheless, the two have sex and then try to date throughout most of the movie. It doesn't work... to great comedic effect! It's all so lovely, and I barely addressed the romance between Hoffman and Lange. It is likely that you can guess why Dorothy would have trouble making a move on the heterosexual Julia. At one point, Dorothy tries to kiss Julia, and it's awkward between them. Grand reveal, Dorothy is a man! Julia doesn't like to be deceived by another guy. Okay, last scene. I quoted it earlier. The ending is a bit ambiguous, but literally, it ends with the two casually talking and walking together, arms on each other's backs. Given the strong feminist message the film had been trying to send for most of its length, I have trouble in believing that the ending was the two going into a relationship. It seemed more like a friendship. The interpretation may differ in another's eyes, but I say what I saw. And I love what I saw.
