This documentary follow an armored car salesman. He deals with other forms of armored protection but the main focus is on the car. He makes a living by following wars and explains simply it is an opportunity that he has taken advantage of. The flow of money is apparent in all wars and to find a product that can protect people from the deadly nature of war is somewhat noble, I think. There is still...
Graffiti nourishes criminal territories. Graffiti creates a community of radically expressive people. Graffiti is a pattern of movement. It is impulsive as much as it is meditative. People hate it as much as others love it. The artist remains anonymous even though they write a name. There style can be recognized like the face of a friend. Some artists are paid big monies for their work. Some...
Exit Through the Gift Shop
Graffiti collects a wide range of praise, support, hate and punishment. I think that it is a true form of expression and it allows an artist to release their ideas into the public without going through the gallery or theater processes that are overworked anyways. Haters think that it disgraces lawful societies and create a community for criminals. I think it enriches the community. I believe...
The Art of the Steal
What would we do if we could not get our way? I enjoy thinking that people respect the dead and honour their wishes after they have passed but sadly that is an opinion without a backbone. Just as a group of people creating their own idea that refutes popular views, will end up being crushed by the majority more often by dishonest means. After a majority has what they want, they leave all the...
The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia
A friend had recently told me to watch this documentary, when I heard the title I expected a crew to be going from home to home just filming and interviewing as many families that bear the stigma of West Virginia families. Instead, the filmmaker’s focus was entirely on a well known family who bear the last name White. The Whites are well known for a slew of reasons. Their Grandmother...
Lost in La Mancha
Terry Gilliam’s trial to recreate the tale of Don Quixote into a movie parallels the story of Don Quixote. Gilliam’s imagination seems to be unstoppable but during filming of Don Quixote, his imagination was the only thing that seemed to be concrete. Most of the obstacles that deterred the movie from getting off the ground was the environment and his production team. Almost as if they...
Cannibal Tours and Waste Land
I am going to try to get my point across. Cannibal Tours carries so much power. The dynamic of the people and the tribe generate this strange uneasiness. It seems to create this representation of two groups that have become unbalanced. On one side the tourists seem to have this character that they are people of the world, sophisticated and rich, vacationing around the world. That is a front....
I watched In the Realms of the Unreal: The Mystery of Harvey Darger and was excited to see another Jessica Yu film but Protagonist fell short in my eyes. They focus was spread over what seemed to be five stories including the puppet play. I found myself wanting to hear more from some of the characters and less from others. Compounding so many stories and trying to draw them all together under one...
Man on Wire
The story of a bizarre Frenchman can offer many things. The determination to pursue a desire or goal can be overshadowed by the final product but it is the essence of that product. This Frenchman’s will drove him to accomplish a feat that seems any other daredevil could not dream. With a steadfast team, some of which have help in his other exploits, they were able to scale the twin towers...

Another person, realizing I was headed to the voting booth, brought up google maps to make sure I understood excactly how to get there. They were very helpful and friendly, just in good moods. So i...

I am amazed by traditions and I think that tradition transfer over into an art. They provide support to a person in a sense. My mom went to Germany and when she came back, she told me and my brothers about some of the things that she was exposed to. One thing that really got my attention was the story about this mushroom gatherer, he would go mushroom hunting and return with an array of mushrooms...

I watch a Coen brothers movie not long ago and if old school gangsters and tommy guns are on your list , you should watch Miller’s Crossing. Akira Kurosawa also did a movie called Sanjuro, which is one of my new favorites, it is along the lines of Yojimbo . All three of those are preetty sweet tba: notoriousnat: Does anyone have any good movies to recommend? I feel like I haven’t seen...

One of the most influential artist that has always entranced me would be Bill Plympton. His animations span from comeic shorts, involving morphing faces and plays on words, to the most serious of maters: HUMAN LIFE. His talent is relentless. Devin

A little bowling don’t hurt anybody
There are so many influencing and controling factors that are reflected throughout . It is influencing because it’s compelling and continuously kept maintained. The reaction of keeping a balance which is practically invisible to the other side of the balance. It isn’t a struggle to stay on schedule, it is controled, but when a new bit is added in the mix, where does the control go?

it is always excellent to establish an old freindship or relation. In the sense that it was a marvelous thing to begin with.
It is not freindly to cause problems, even when you just need help. It is never to late to extend an open hand.I do not procrastinate but when I do not have a clue how to advance it puts me in a stalemate, but believe me I play me some chess.

Sin is not in my lexicon– my grandad, Robert Kilpatrick Shewood
We all have to face adjusting to something that we were not expecting in life. The real adjustment is continueing to be able and responsible for the change.

I have always wanted to start a trek through the world and capture that amazingly fluid beauty that belongs to it. It starts with a thought and commenced by action, my own feeling of a beginning. There is so much more that I cannot touch but I am my own restriction as well as a guide.
