I missed this somehow when it came out, picked it up on Showtime last night and was totally blown away. One the best concert DVDs I’ve ever seen. If you’re a beastie fan, I highly recommended you check it out. Wikipedia has a short page
on the concert and DVD, Amazon
also has some data on how it was put together and some reviews.
Hard Candy (2005)
Minimalist with an incredible script and brilliant acting on the part of Ellen Page. Very unsettling too.
Closet Land (1991)
Another minimalist film that involved just two characters and great acting on the part of Madeline Stowe and Alan Rickman.
Both five star films. “Page turners”. I highly recommended both.
Special effects don’t compensate for a lack of talent, bad writing, poor design and obvious segways into sequels.
Avoid this DVD at all costs.
Well I hope everyone had a great Christmas, I know I did. I totally dig North Carolina. I think I might move up there in the next few years. Homes and property are really inexpensive compared to some areas of the country. Plus the area has a great deal to offer – the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area has a great deal of culture mixed with a touch of country, a perfect mix in my book. I could have sworn the entrance to a Whole Foods near N.C. State was actually a transporter to the Whole Foods in San Francisco. The same cast of characters was there, hippies, dreds, tattoos, and dyed hair. Neat. The Research Triangle area offers tech for geeks like me, and it’s only a
12 hour trip 9.75 hour trip from my house on the beach in Destin.
On the side, my Z4 performed exceptionally well on the trip up and back. At 85 mph she feels like 45, at 100 she feels like 80, and at 106 mph on I-10 at 2am, she feels, well, just plain fast! I also learned a valuable lesson – that little yellow dot by the gas gauge means your almost out of gas, time to pull over. Ugh. I’d rather not go into the details. 😯
