Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark

Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark

Theater review by: Witney Seibold

 

So I got back from New York recently, and I was able to, thanks to a stroke of luck, get into see Julie Taymor’s new musical “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” for relatively cheap. I am now here, dazed, able to offer up to my loyal readers, a run-down on the experience. Strap in tight, though, ’cause things are about to get nutty. (more…)

Norwegian Ninja

Norwegian Ninja

Film review by: Witney Seibold

I’m trying to think of an American equivalent to Norway’s Arne Treholt, a man who, during the Cold War, worked for the Norwegian secret service, and ended up going to jail (and is still in jail to this day) for selling secrets to the Russians, which led to the destruction of an off-shore oil rig.

Scream XXX: A Porn Parody

Scream XXX: A Porn Parody

film review by: Witney Seibold

 

I think the first big success in the current wave of porn parodies was “Not the Bradys XXX,” which was, at the time, a rather clever conceit. How many porn-fancying Gen-Xers, if they were honest with themselves, didn’t want to see Marcia and Jane getting it on? (more…)

In a Glass Cage (1987)

In a Glass Cage

Film review by: Witney Seibold 

My twisted quest to find the worlds sickest and most twisted films has now led me to Agusí Villronga‘s 1987 art-house shocker “In a Glass Cage,” a film about pedophiles, Nazis, revenge torture, extreme fetish, and one of the weirdest sex scenes this side of David Cronenberg. (more…)

Deep Gold

Deep Gold

Film review by: Witney Seibold

 

          I saw Michael Gleissner’s “Deep Gold” on the final day of its several-week run at the Bigfoot Crest in Westwood, CA. If you live in the area, you may have seen posters for “Deep Gold” in storefront windows and at bus stops. If not, it’s likely you’ve never heard of it. (more…)

Atlas Shrugged, part 1

Atlas Shrugged, part 1

Film review by: Witney Seibold

 

          I’ve not read Ayn Rand’s famed polemical tome Atlas Shrugged, so I cannot speak to the literary fealty of Paul Johansson’s film adaptation, nor can I speak of its purity of the objectivist vision, but I do get the feeling that the book couldn’t possibly be as clumsily constructed or as deathly dull as this film, nor could it have been as thuddingly preachy and so lacking in incident.

Rubber

Rubber

Film review by: Witney Seibold

Quentin Despieux‘s “Rubber” is a cult hit in the making. You may have read about it. It’s that film about a sentient living tire, that rolls about a desert landscape, merrily killing the people who anger or abuse it. (more…)
