    The entrance of Deneuve, and Bowie in sunglasses, and Alaia leather couture with Bauhaus playing was one of the chicest begininngs of any film.

    Now I really wan to see this film, especially considering "the scene" that's supposed to come later.

    Considering what is now available now on cable, in video stores, and on the internet, you'll most likely be underwhelmed. I imagine the scene was somewhat shocking when the movie was released, particularly since both actresses involved were well-known.

    I'll glad to holler as soon as I see it.
    Thank God Borat doesn't drop until November. It opened in Iceland already and our student's friends have all seen it. He is bummed out by this and wants to see it forthwith.



    What's the word on the street about Borat?

    That movie reminds me of the comment a legendary actor supposedly made about the Robert Altman film 'The Player' -- "its the film where you get to see the tits of the girl whose tits you don't want to see [Sarandon], and never get to see the tits of the girl whose tits you do want to see [Deneuve]."

    gonna go see American Hardcore this weekend and relive my youth!
    GS, did you see it? I'd be interested in your thoughts. I thought it was ok, fun for the nostalgia element and in some cases to remind me of performers I haven't thought about for a while. But I found the whole "reflecting on the meaning of it" and some of the occasional self-importance a bit tiresome.
    I've heard/read a lot of Henry Rollins interviews, commentary over the years, but no as much of Ian MacKaye. I thought Ian MacKaye came across pretty cool (as did, unsurprisingly, HR).
    Apropos of this weekend, CBGB RIP.

    yep I saw it! I agree about some of the "we were so important" diatribes, even if there is some truth in it but I was very impressed by the old footage they showed as well as the choices of footage. I mean, a movie that includes old footage of YDI, Negative FX's infamous last show where they pull the plug during "might makes right", Faith, Void, etc is definitely made by and for purists of hardcore. Ian MacKaye always comes off as very intelligent and is one of the few performers who walks his talk and the fact that Fugazi turned down repeated $1m+ offers to sign with a major, always kept ticket prices under $10, and never made any official merch (allowing the fans to do so themselves and keep whatever $ they made) is truly punk and a rare thing in that biz.

    Just saw Flags of Our Fathers. Had some great moments, but lacked a consistent level of excitement and interest. Perhaps the story of the heroes who took the island of Iwo Jima is simply too big, even to be placed into an appropriate, cinematic context. A little preachy, toward the end.

    Still, well worth seeing. ***

    I was big on Minor Threat but passed on Fugazi until later on, but it was always apparent that MacKaye was smart without rubbing your face in it, which is a rare quality. He's probably too quiet for our good - we could use more Fugazi and less Britney/Jessica in our day-to-day. I may have to wait for DVD, since I doubt I could talk Mrs T into watching this.

    I read a piece over the weekend suggesting it completely removed any hint of black American participation in the battle, even though black soldiers played a crucial role. With this in mind did you think it was racist?

    edit - here's the story from this saturdays Guardian http://film.guardian.co.uk/News_Stor...928009,00.html . I didn't realise the film was written by Haggis though, how odd.

    I'm surprised anyone thinks Ian Mackaye is not outspoken. He's certainly a smart guy, and he's never shied away from offering his opinion. He def. walks the walk, too; the Evens still only play DIY shows in DC--churches, benefits, free shows, etc., when they could probably sell 1000 tickets if they wanted to.

    My roomate saw American HC last weekend--I'm sure I'll see it eventually. He also said HR was coherent and cool. Was it old footage, maybe? [​IMG]

    the footage they use is a mix of older and newer...Ian's interviews are definitely older, probably around the time he did Embrace. HRs interviews def have an older look as well. You can tell by the graininess of the filmstock. Recent talks are with Rollins, guy from Articles of Faith, Greg Ginn, Frank and Steve from Adolescents, etc

    I really want to see The Last King of Scotland because it features my hero, Idi Amin.

    I've heard good things about 'The Queen', and Helen Mirren in particular -- anyone seen it?
