coverThe underground
gets a word in finally. Stunnying documentary about an artist who got snubbed at the Love-In. A great, dicey look into the brainbox of one of America's rare artists.

Night of the Iguana coverALIGN="BOTTOM" WIDTH="77" HEIGHT="140" NATURALSIZEFLAG="3"> Can you say "Ava Gardner"? YOW! Great look at people doing what they gotta do, way down south. Exiles helping each other hide...and confront. Do they make em any better? Way back when they made movies MUCH WILDER than they
do today. Today's movies are little chickens in comparison. See some real life dealt with candidly for a change. Go Richard Burton!

coverTalk about la vita loca! What a soundtrack! Gusto! Fellini and Nino Rota give us a boisterous, art-soaked, love of life classic.

"3">WOW! Magnificent documentary of wonderful guy canoeing around Lake Superior in old red wood'n'canvas canoe, thru the seasons. Just gorgeous. Superbly written. Stunning soundtrack. By Bill Mason, the guy who got the documentary Oscar for "Paddle to the Sea," that amazing kids flick. Just as good.

And an equally fed-up girlfriend. Max ironic 80's style moviemaking. With totally affected soundtrack. Hal Hartley directs.

The Thin Man "http://outyourbackdoor.com/videoshop/B00005BCOQ.01.MZZZZZZZ.jpg" BORDER="0" ALT="cover" hspace="3" vspace="3" ALIGN="BOTTOM" WIDTH="76" HEIGHT="140" NATURALSIZEFLAG="3">The most
martinis and the quickest wits in all moviemaking. William Powell, Myrna
Loy. The standard for all witty repartee movies involving nightlife. Includes stylish hangovers.

Once Were Warriors coverWhat's an old prizefighter to do? Is his best good enough? A story of an abuser who gets under your skin. Love im hate im love im. Wonderful lead role. Amazing look at the Moiri culture of New Zealand that we haven't seen before over here. A very fine novel, too. NZ has actually put out a few kickbutt writers
lately. More than we have! Alan Duff, Nigel Cox. And Keri Hulme of Oz. They kick butt with a totally different tone from what we've ever seen before.

cover"Why do we do it? Coz we're desperate!" --About why the Beatles did their thing.

A Fine Madness coverALIGN="BOTTOM" WIDTH="76" HEIGHT="140" NATURALSIZEFLAG="3"> Sean Connery does the only movie look at what happened to poor old Ezra Pound, who got too poetic for the 50's. Independent ladies weren't the only sane people to be locked up back then.

And so can Peter OToole. A really crazy movie.
