An Overheated Kettle That You Can’t Turn Down: “Daisies” (FILMBAR)

Playing this Sunday at FilmBar in downtown Phoenix is Věra Chytilová’s Daisies. A wild, surrealistic romp of a film, it’s radical form is still revolutionary. Here’s a write-up on the film (and its filmmaker) for FilmBar. I’m also working on a piece about Chytilová’s other avant-garde masterpiece “Fruit of Paradise” for De’Lunula (keep your eyes peeled for that next week).

In Space, No One Can Hear You Kill, Kill, Kill, Die, Die, Die: “Jason X” (FilmBar)

For my latest FilmBar film blog, I take a look at one of my favorite horror movies. It’s a film that is far, far better than it has any right to be: “Jason X.”

Yeah, that’s right. The movie with cyber-Jason and sex robots with guns. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than you’d expect it to be.
