Dziga Vertov's Man With A Movie Camera is coming out on blu ray from Flicker Alley. It features the uncut version of the film for I think the first time. Not uncut as in there is extra footage, uncut as in previous versions actually had a portion of the frame missing because of the introduction of talkies.

That looks good and it should be coming out in May right?

Watched this last night and it was a pretty big letdown. Not nearly as good as I had expectations going in. Plus, while I like the subject matter Nick Broonfield takes on, none of his movies have really done it for me. I think I just don't like his style. Those stupid headphones he wears. Rabble rabble rabble.

Pretty entertaining, although I've been up to speed on the fall of Silk Road and the Ross Ulbricht trial for a while now, so it was nothing new.

I guess I've been on a HBO kick the last couple months, but I loved Going Clear, Citizenfour, and Jinx. Planning on checking out the Kurt Cobain one at some point as well.

A couple of my favorites in this category, but they aren't necessarily new:
Dear Zachary (I recommend not reading about this one up front)
Man on Wire
The King of Kong
The Imposter
Because it's the print we deserve, but not the one we need right now. So we'll hunt it.

Let's not start sucking each other's dicks quite yet.

Watched Citizenfour last night. Thought it was great! I had no idea that stuff was video taped, and so well documented by the reporters involved, before, during, and after Snowden released documents to the media. And the extent Snowden took with security with encrypted conversations, and the files themselves. Draping a blanket over your head and laptop when typing in encryption keys... just in case a hotel camera was fixed on him. Unplugging the hotel VOIP phone in case it was hot-mic'd, etc. The last scene of them having a half audible, half notepad conversation just in case of listening devices. Crazy scary stuff!
