David Gaz Reader Find

By David Gaz in New Film on Tuesday 7 February 2012

At one time, this documentary was getting a lot of buzz. It’s both a fascinating milieu and flawlessly executed. I have an obsession with obscure hobbies that create huge subcultures where the fans would give anything to be Jim Richman for a day, a person who most of us would never hear of if it […]

Nicole Trilivas Reader Find

By Nicole Trilivas in New Film on Thursday 12 January 2012

The odd documentary, Power of the Witch, was allegedly only screened once in the UK, and examines contemporary occult practitioners. With a considerably trippy, Swinging Sixties slant, it delves into the historical backgrounds of Wicca, Satanism, exorcisms, and black magic.

Diana Archila Reader Find

By Diana Archila in New Film on Tuesday 23 August 2011

I remember playing Dungeons & Dragons with my brother and god-brothers in a Long Island basement pretty much all through the winter for a good year or so. Scott Weidermeier could have been any one of the four of us if we’d stayed in that dank, dark place any longer. If you’re tired of the […]

Project Nim: about a chimp who learned to speak

Peter from Hey Champ Reader Find

By Peter from Hey Champ in New Film on Saturday 23 July 2011

I went to see the documentary Project Nim other day at The Music Box in Chicago. It’s the kind of place that is also playing the director’s cut of The Man Who Fell To Earth on a giant screen.
