  • Silence

    I can tell you two things for free and then i'm outta here: (1) History continues to gnaw at our nervous system and (2) Silence is essential viewing (and listening) for anybody that's experienced the nagging suspicion that our values are in the blender at the moment and we just can't articulate the confusion of it all.

    Having just re-watched 'Frank' for the 3rd time, it is, as of right now, my favorite film of 2014. I highly recommend it!

  • Night Moves, and the history of eco-consciousness in cinema

    Due to the amount of articles, television programmes, news pieces, books, radio shows and films that have addressed climate change or other environmental issues in recent years, it's easy to forget just how recently eco-consciousness became part of the public conversation.
