Jandek on Corwood
“The longest-running, weirdest, loneliest enigma in popular music is a guy from Texas who calls
himself Jandek." So begins a 1997 Boston Phoenix article by Douglas Wolk. From the bluesy, atonal
music and haunting lyrics, to the artist’s steadfast seclusion and sheer longevity, everything about this
man intrigues. Twenty-five years, 34 albums, and not a single live show or public appearance. Even the
simple detail of the man's real name is a mystery.
Jandek on Corwood is the 89-minute documentary that explores this man, his world and his music.

(mx) wrote: Shark Swarm is a below average film about killer sharks. John Schneider plays the lead and plays a similar character he played in Lake Placid 2. Daryl Hannah plays his wife and really adds nothing to this film other than a recognizable name. Armand Assante plays the swanky real estate developer and actually pulls off the performance very convincingly. Shark Swarm must have been a made to air on television. There is very little violence, no swearing, and shitty commercial break fadeouts. Since this is part of the Manhunter series it might have been designed to air on the Sci-Fi Channel like many of the other Manhunter movies. The CGI was horrible. I give them credit for working around their limitations. Every time a shark would attack someone they would cut away and just show a lot of red in the water. They must have only done a few CGI scenes with the sharks because they would just show the same scenes over and over again. It might not have been that noticeable if they didn't show the same scene several times only a few seconds apart. The major problem I have with Shark Swarm was that it is almost three hours long. The filmmakers could have edited this down to make this a 90 to 100 minute movie. There is no reason for it to last longer because in this case more doesn't mean better. There were several scenes that could have been trimmed like several of the random shark kills or almost every scene with the EPA agent as she was completely wasted and added nothing to this movie. Many shark movies tend to copy or recreate scenes from JAWS. This movie is no different. They pulled out a shark tooth from a hole in a boat, a town hall meeting that was done slightly different, and there was even a scene with a shark cage. Overall this movie wasn't entirely a waste of time. If you like bad shark movies or bad sci-fi movies then you might like this one. I am pretty sure the near three hour runtime will keep even those viewers away.

Tragic but engrossing, captures the temperament of an artist very well, shows lots of paintings that are truly amazing and inspiring. I should have learned about this artist in college, but somehow didn't... hmmm...

(jp) wrote: One of the most disturbing films i have ever seen. The movie is horrible. Not horrible in the way that it's bad but in the way that it's brutal and graphic. But overall, the film was still enjoyable. The camera quality is very cheap but gives it a realistic look to the film which is why it was so controversial and banned everywhere. The acting is good for a super low budget film and it uses real cannibals in the film. Recommended !!

(ca) wrote: Impressive/promising directorial debuts are a hard thing to come by, so when one finally appears lovers of the seventh art start to buzz about it and highlighting their greatness. This was the case in 2006 with the release of Rian Johnsons directorial debut: "Brick"Brendan Frye is an antisocial and smart teenager who one day receives a phone call from his ex-girlfriend who desperately ask for his help but two days later Brendan finds her dead. So begins a quest for Brendan to find out who kill her love one and why. Ill be honest, this is one of those films that Ive been wanting to see due to its big cult following and because Johnson surprised me with his third film "Looper" so my expectations for this film were high and thankfully Johnson didn't disappoint me. "Brick" counts with subtle but remarkable acting by most of its cast with the best being Gordon Levitt and Nora Zehetner, it works as both a homage to the noir genre and as a creative experiment of the genre, Johnsons directing is focused in the details and he manages to do much with this low budget, the story isn't the most realistic one but it is clever and it absolutely executes the noir trademarks marvelously without getting too convoluted , while the characters aren't likeable or memorable they are still interesting, the dialog is excellent (sure at times it gets a little pretentious but it mostly works), the cinematography is gorgeous, an atmosphere that feels like David Lynchs "Twin Peaks", a score that feels improvised but somehow works well within the narrative, the high school setting provides some actually funny comedy, the few acting scenes it has are used appropriately, and it counts with a well done mystery that may be small due to the setting but it still manages to grab your attention and interest. The only issues this impressive debut has are that the characters constantly speak fast or just whisper that you struggle to understand what they are saying, and the fact that at the end of the day this mystery goes to the "tell don't show" territory. "Brick" is a fantastic homage/experiment of the noir genre and it truly shows the talent that Rian Johnson has. This is by no means a realistic film but if you are willing to give credit to Johnsons ambition and execution you won't mind it. A more than noticeable directorial debut that guarantees a good time if you love cult films, want to see ambitious ideas on screen, love the noir genre, or simply love movies in general.
