    Rewatched this over the weekend...man I forgot how good this is. It's like Robert Rodriguez made a John Waters movie.

    That's Sexploitation! (2013) on Severin Films blu-ray

    A documentary / clip montage of sexploitation films from the silent era up to just before hard core porn became a thing. Hosted by Frank Henenlotter (Basket Case) and David F. Friedman (described on the cover as The Mighty Monarch of Exploitation) it's pretty entertaining. Lightweight as a documentary, it touches on the history of nickel arcade loops, nudie cuties, roughies, nudist films, sex hygiene films and so on, but rarely stays on any topic for long and only briefly mentions and shows a short clip of some of the "stars" of the era, such as Bettie Page or Blaze Starr. Still, that keeps things moving and it's fairly long at a little over 2 hours. There are tons of clips, thus tons of nudity and lots of cool swinging tunes from the various eras. Good times, if you like that sort of thing. :D

    The blu-ray is a single disc and includes bonus full length shorts totaling over 3.5 hours. While some are still interesting, this type of film can be tedious in long stretches so it actually lends itself to the compilation form of the documentary.

    Interesting. I was unaware of this film. Is it shot in the style of the cover?* Thanks.

    * Looking it up, I see that it is not. Probably just a look to tie into the Sin City flicks. Still, I'll check it out sometime.

    "Freaky," 2020. Horror/teen jkiller serial killer flick where hulking, masked killer Vince Vaughn accidentally switches bodies with his female teenage victim Kathryn Newton.



    I had heard of this and it had some pretty good buzz, particularly about Vaughn. I think I was expecting too much, cause this wasn't much more than a small step or two above a garden variety teen slasher movie. Vaughn and Newton are good, they aren't given enough to work with here. I think younger people would like this more than I did, I'm probably just not the market for this kind of film - I like my horror to go a lot deeper and do it more subtly than this.

    The Pervert's Guide To Cinema (2006, Sophie Fiennes)
    I love listening to Slovenian philosopher, Slavoj Žižek, usually in doses; but in regard to one of my favorite subjects - cinema - it's sheer fun. I don't necessarily agree with much of his thesis but the insights are intriguing. Must watch for any movie lover.

    went on a documentary binge through my second shot recovery and Xfinity Watchathon this week.
    Dealt-story of Richard Turner, renowned as one of the greatest close-up card magicians who happens to be completely blind. very well done. if the subject interests you, the film is worth searching out.

    Gotta Dance-story of the creation of the first NBA seniors only hip-hop dance team in 2007. the seniors are very personable and work damn hard to make this a success. young ladies training and choreographing come off as really difficult to like.

    Muscle Shoals-any music fan needs to see this doc about FAME studios and Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. incredible number of musicians reflect on the atmosphere and the people helping create music in these studios. must see. the Lynyrd Skynyrd portion is exceptional IMO.

    Happy People: A Year In The Taiga-i really enjoyed this. closest thing i've seen to what early pioneer life may have been like. best described by another website-Werner Herzog sharing directorial duties with Dmitry Vasyukov, in Happy People: A Year in the Taiga, Herzog showcases the life of people in the village of Bakhtia beside the Yenisei river in the Siberian taiga. Harsh, desolate, and existential — this is Herzog where he is most comfortable (and relatable). It focuses on many fur trappers and hunters, as well as the life of the native Ket people. Herzog’s voiceovers are poetic, and he tries to unpack the specific form of the human experience that could keep people happy and content at the farthest reaches of the habitable world. Ever the humanist, Herzog finds his answer among many other answers, as everyone shown in the film has a different idea of what it means to live in the Siberian taiga.

    The Day Sports Stood Still-HBO-weak, IMO, doc about the sports world when it came to a standstill after Rudy Gobert of the Utah Jazz was diagnosed with Covid-19. starts interestingly but becomes slower and boring as it progresses.

    QT8:The First Eight-any Tarantino fan will probably love this even if you know a lot about his life and career. i know i did. made me interested in revisiting some of his earlier films.

    The Dresser-with Anthony Hopkins and Ian McKellan. Hopkins plays a deteriorating and tempermental stage actor and McKellan plays his long standing (suffering?) dresser. set during WWII as they work through a performance of King Lear. also with Emily Watson and a very young Vanessa Kirby. I enjoyed watching these two actors play off one and other even though the accents made it hard to understand at times. might be just me.

    "Inside Motorhead: A Critical Review" (2005)
    This is one of those low budget "semi official" documentaries that are all over Amazon Prime, with the same crew of British rock journalists (Malcolm Dome, Dave Reynolds, Jerry Ewing, etc.) running thru the classic Motorhead catalog album by album (i.e. the debut thru Orgasmatron), padded out with some vintage live and interview clips of Lemmy and co.
    Like any of these cheap docs, long time fans are not likely to learn anything new from this, but it was an OK time waster with my morning coffee.

    Last night I watched the WW2 flick, The Eagle Has Landed on BD. It's pretty good and has several twists.
