Odd Films and Weird Videos

I don't know how I missed this site before: oddfilms.com, specializing in capsule reviews of offbeat and underappreciated films. That's something that's right up my alley. In addition to categories like Japanese Films and Korean Cinema, they have ones like Dead Pets On Film, Avuncular Cinema (movies that feature stereotypically eccentric uncles and aunts), and Ill Mannered British People. And, as an extra bonus, they have a special category focused on films that take place in New Jersey. I see a few films from our collection listed here, like Ghost World (and the Bollywood spectacular from which that films takes part of its opening sequence, Gumnaam), Grey Gardens (a great documentary by the Maysles Brothers about Big Edie Beale and her daughter Little Edie, relatives of Jackie Kennedy Onassis who live in a crumbling mansion on Long Island), and Women's Private Parts, a shot-on-video documentary about women and sex in Hong Kong. There are some promising candidates for movie night at the Brandi household. Definitely one to check regularly.

What do you mean there is no cat?

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

- Albert Einstein, explaining radio
