If you have not seen this documentary, you need to make it your business.
There’s never been a film like it. I tried to find one.
NYRB: In its revealing examination of the genesis of moral conscience and of the psychology of evil, The Act of Killing is less like any film I can recall than like journalist Gita Sereny’s book-length interviews with Albert Speer and the commandant of Treblinka.

Here’s the DP/30 interview with Joshua Oppenheimer
Why is someone trying not to laugh so damn funny?
A big thanks to Martin Bell! His new art book DVDs and Rocks $2 just arrived in the mail and it’s awesome. I think its the best one yet!
It’s hilarious and the new watercolours are fantastic!
Francis E Parker: In the two and occasionally three dimensions in which Bell works, it is his ahistorical time that is governor and unifier. For Bell all things remain in the present while they are collected together in his consciousness. All his experience is current, including his youthful passions; there is no room for nostalgia in the densely populated visual worlds he creates, only his undimmed vitality.
I was just about to say the same thing!
Get down to Tolarno Gallery on exhibition street for his latest show Skull Gully II this Saturday the 27th July 2013 3-5pm.
Do yourself a big favor and score yourself an artwork or one of these books!
“The dazzling new film from Godfrey Reggio (Koyaanisqatsi) screens with a live performance of Philip Glass’ score by the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, in a special presentation introduced by Steven Soderbergh.”
Fandor has a festival trailer roundup, Gloria, The Fifth Estate, Walesa: Man of Hope, and For Those Who Can Tell No Tales are worth a look.
The most awkward rave ever.
This is just awful.
Everybody’s Gotta Live
"Everybody’s gotta live, and everybody’s gonna die.
Everybody’s gotta live, I think you know the reason why.
Sometime they go and get so good, but then again it gets pretty rough,
but when I have you in my arms baby, you know I just can’t,
I just can’t get enough…”
