beautiful short film "Poleaxed", written, directed and part filmed by the always impeccable Helen Petts.
A meditation on stillness and perception following a road accident and subsequent illness. A contemplation of her life over the course of a year in her local park.

Helen Petts is an extraordinary artist. She often collaborates with musicians, as well as running a Youtube channel devoted to free improvised music and is co-promoter of the Mopomoso series of free improvisation concerts with guitarist John Russell. She is currently making a film about Kurt Schwitters for a solo exhibition at the Hatton Gallery in Newcastle to open on the 21st June 2012.
great documentary film on the history of surfing.
unrelentingly grim but another astonishing performance by Tom Hardy.
Kevin Spacey, Donald Sutherland & various others team up on a witty, fast-paced comedy about three white guys in LA trying to kill their bosses. How they managed to make this plot very good is beyond me. Great acting, production values and blooper reel at the end.
a documentary by visionary filmmaker Jan Kounen.
the heart of the Shipibo Shamans.

Oh, it doesn't have to be high art!! I like my candyfloss fluff too!
I just don't like candyfloss fluff dressed as high art.
Still, nice cheek bones though. I would.
the last time I set foot in the local multiplex was for the Dead movie screening. They're not going to get my money for this. But there's nothing wrong with being fun to watch, and luckily Johnny Depp can make the phone book fun to watch. You want high art, this is probably not your movie.
i wonder if he'd read it in a faux kooky 'I'm eccentric, me' exaggerated dead dull void like tone?
talent deserted long ago, producing visual ennui while the crowds gawp on in pleasure, drowsily spooning mouthfuls of congealing nachos into their glistening chops.
Depp's recent films represent untertainment at it's finest and will be warmly welcomed by anyone who regularly sits in front of the screen with a loaded shotgun in their mouth, trying to pluck up the courage.
