New video for an album that won't come out until summer, probably. Maybe sooner, if I get things together. It's all done and everything, just that there are 2 other albums done that I finished first. The song is called "Nostalgia, then Clobber," and the album is "A History of Parrots." Hope you enjoy. www.myspace.com/modernsilentcinema for more info.
"Amos Vogel is arguably the person most responsible for contemporary New York City film culture. Before Anthology Film Archives, Film Forum, the IFC Center or Two Boots were around to introduce audiences to the latest in independent, foreign, documentary or experimental cinema — before there was even much of an inkling such films existed — there was Vogel’s Cinema 16, a film society that introduced audiences to a whole new way of looking at not only movies but also the world around them."
"What makes Baby Face Harrington stand out is not its clever satirizing of gangster movies, nor its status as a mid-period film of director Raoul Walsh, nor its cast that reads like a 'Who’s Who' list of underappreciated character actors, but that its very premise is about the elevation of these 'character actors' to star status: the foregrounding of what is normally merely background ephemera."
"The Signal is an apocalyptic amalgamation of several far better films — Renoir’s The Rules of the Game, Romero’s Dawn of the Dead and especially Buñuel’s The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie — each of which already investigates the same major theme of The Signal: the breakdown of our existing social order."
