It's quite amazing, the human mind. Because they told me after the faith healer, she did seem like she was better. She was happy, active and the colour in her skin seemed to come back. But it was all just in her head. The cancer was getting worse and worse and she just wasn't showing it.
Okay - now - bear with me just a second here. If I was dying of cancer and had the choice of body-wrecking chemo and radiation for another 12 months, and then death, OR 6 months of happiness in denial and then a fast drop into the coffin... having seen a girlfriend choose the misery of chemo and death, I'm going to go with happy denial.

Answering my own request if someone else happened to be interested: Tom Downd and the Language of Music (trailer only, sadly). The same guy who worked with atom bombs engineered a hell of a lot of good records. Great documentary going through his whole career.

Still, I'm open for suggestions if anyone happens to know any other good docs about music in general.
Thanks for this. I think I saw the whole thing on Netflix and initially thought it was another poof piece making some label giant feel better about how he raped artists (I'm just saying - there's a lot of "hey I made a big contribution behind my desk" music documentaries out there) but this one was fantastic. Cats like this (that's right I said "cats") are the ones that took those raw artists and somehow educated them while keeping that rawness.

I was curious as to why nobody had mentioned that yet. I expected them to walk in there and tell him how disgusting he is and how they are no longer going to be silent and let this cycle continue. I guess a small bit off that came out when they got drunk on beer at the middle-of-the-forest funeral . That made it extra creepy.
I'm convinced that kind of attack on a dying perverted old fucker only happens in the movies. All of these women (and men) were scarred and damaged to the point that right and wrong aren't measured by the same methods most people use. Their dad was flawed, but in their minds, maybe not enough to make a scene in a hospital or on film. You could see them all draw inward as they went to see him - some of them gathering the courage just to walk up to him.

It would have been a greater film for that, but I admire the filmmaker for being unrelenting prior to that gathering.

Last Days Here - just caught this on Netflix.

In this poignant documentary portrait, an aged and gaunt Bobby Liebling, the former lead singer of the heavy metal act Pentagram, rallies to restart his life after decades of disappointment and drug addiction.

So sure, it's the last days of a rock n roll has been who's done too many drugs and we get to watch him as he O.D.s, while talking about how he should have been hailed as the next Ozzy.

I loved it. I kept waiting for him to die. I hate to say it, but, with the title of the movie and the steady footage of him smoking crack, it seemed pretty obvious that it was going to happen at any moment in the film, and the rest of the movie would be other metal has-beens talking about how Bobby changed their life.

But alas! Without giving away too much of the story - it was a great story about him, as well as the kid who spent 2 years trying to pull him out of addiction and get him back on stage.

Clean Flicks, -the small video rental store in Utah that started the R rating scrubbing of movies for nice Mormon families. They aren't supposed to watch R rated movies (see: This Film is Not Yet Rated for more on ratings bullshit) It's really interesting, and I am ashamed to have lived in that area for a while. There were many Christ-like families were participating in the owner/s breaking of copyright law, well beyond the uncertainty of the situation.

I sided with directors on this one, it's their creative work and video rental owners were cutting out the swearing and sex, violence gets a pass apparently. Also the Mormons who rented and bought the sanitized movies, really sticking with the spirit of the law there right? Well, the ending was complete schadenfreude for me, and it was delicious.

I loved it.

But, like with any great documentary, I always wonder how many things change as a result of documentaries?

Supersize Me for example. I remember hearing that McDonalds changed their practice after the movie came out, so that they'd only supersize the meal if the customer requested it... (but I notice they still offer it).

Can you think of any other significant changes as a result of a documentary? I don't mean a lawsuit settlement, but a complete overhaul of a system? The ratings system for instance - upon watching Not Yet Rated, I was positive the MPAA would overhaul everything they're doing, down to changing the ratings themselves. But nnnnnnope.

Even though it's made 20 years earlier, I thought The War Game's reenactment scenes were more brutal than Threads, as grim as that was. It's as realistic as it can be within the confines of reason and 1960's special effects.

Queue up something funny or light to watch afterward, though. It's right there with Dear Zachary to me. The film literally ends with the narrator asking, "would mankind continue in spite of all this, or would the living simply envy the dead and opt out of their new reality?"

Even riding the dovetails of Pulp Fiction knockoffs, it seems like Miramax went especially overboard greenlighting a script written by somebody with no prior filmmaking experience, then also asking him to direct, on top of buying out his bar and signing his lovely band to write the score. I'd love to hear their end of the bargain because that seems absolutely ludicrous to me. Miramax could have given the script to any competent director in Hollywood at the time, and his/her crew could have reworked it into something halfway decent. It's so insane that it feels like a Trading Places-style bet made between the brothers Weinstein.
I think part of the glory of Pulp Fiction was finding Tarantino and letting him run wild. If you've read the story behind that script, (PF) most studios passed on it and didn't expect it to do jack poo poo. Anytime there's an amazing blow up like this, I'm guessing most studios just cover their eyes and say "we know jack poo poo, the public wants crap, lets give em crap."

Okay - but - devil's advocate to the devil here - reading that article (the first one) is like reading a letter from Rudy Juliani in response to a documentary exposing the rampant crime and drug use in New York City. If the point of the Vice doc was to show the good AND the bad in Liberia, that'd be one thing. But he's in no way trying to showcase the good of a thing. There's so many other docs out there that sugarcoat the good of a given location.

I realize he's not giving a fair view of both sides in any conversation. He's showing the Bad poo poo that's happening. It's like the PETA folks that go film the pig slaughters. I absolutely realize the only way to get tasty, delicious bacon is by killing pigs. So those videos from PETA are real footage, but they're not showing the full story. Same thing here, except these are humans, and it's footage of a beach, covered in human turds. Next to what looks like acres of garbage.

The GOOD that he's doing, in my mind, is bringing horrible things to light. Once I watch his shock and awe introduction to Liberia, my interest is piqued and I'll absolutely go digging for more details. PBS goes so far out of it's way to remain objective in political documentaries - giving both sides the chance to respond, that the horrors that are going on get lots in the debate.

But, that said, I'll absolutely watch these Vice docs with a grain of salt. I'm still absolutely impressed that this guy doesn't make docs using existing footage with voiceovers. He goes there, he sees the poo poo with his own eyes and then discusses what's going on. I absolutely realize it's a partial opinion.

I have a new idol.

Netflix posted:

Time hasn't mellowed caped comedian Blowfly -- aka Clarence Reid -- who's still dishing up lewd and rude rap ditties that could make folks half his age blush. This unflinching biopic follows the 69-year-old funk machine as he mounts a comeback tour.

one comment on there sums up the doc. It's not only about a 69-yr-old funk legend with a potty mouth, but also the challenges of taking a niche performance out on the road.

quote:

The story is absolutely about Clarence Reid. Its a documentary that tells about his influence as an artist with both his personas. It also tells about his failures as a person and as an artist who didn't know how to handle what he earned. That is the reality of Clarence and I think the documentary accurately depicts what his life was and is. Clarence is a complicated person and a unique artist, and also a difficult person to work with. His relationship with Tom is documented in the film because that is who he is working with now. Tom is also difficult to work with and not the best manager, but he has tried to rejuvenate Clarence and Blowfly by creating new material and widening his audience, though it has not always been successful. He has brought them to Europe twice and Australia twice and all over the states, sometimes to small audiences sometimes to large ones. There is no exploitation here, Tom is trying to keep Clarence working so that he can earn some money. Watch the film again and you may realize a little more about Clarence and his current situation.

When I was a kid, I found an album titled ALL THIS AND WORLD WAR II: Sountrack It was one of those old box sets - a cardboard box that houses a couple of albums and a booklet. I had no idea what the was about, but at the time I was in love with the Beatles, and the album was maybe two bucks.



My copy of the album disappeared a couple of years later, but I remember a lot of the covers. Around the same time, the BeeGees released the horrific Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band. (Though, looking over the songlist below, they're on this as well. I wonder if it's the same tracks).

According to a wikipedia page:

Wiki posted:

All This and World War II is a 1976 musical documentary that juxtaposes Beatles songs, performed by a number of musicians, with World War II newsreel footage and 20th Century Fox films from the 1940s. It lasted two weeks in cinemas and was quickly sent into storage.

The original intention of the filmmakers was to use actual Beatles music in the film. The decision to use other artists covering Beatles music was made by the film's producers after they realised additional money could be made through a soundtrack album. The decision was a sound one, as the soundtrack actually generated more revenue than the film.

The album reached number 23 on the UK album charts, with a total of seven weeks on the chart.[2] Elton John’s rendition of "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" was previously released as a single in 1974 and had been a number one hit.[4] Rod Stewart’s version of "Get Back" was subsequently released and became a UK hit single.

The Bee Gees, who contributed three songs, would go on to star in Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, another film that exclusively used Beatles songs.

To recap. Beatles covers by Warner Brothers Pop Stars of 1975, WW2 Newsreel Footage, and clips from WW2 Movies. Documentary? Art flick? Seventies version of rock videos?

So. Maybe it doesn't count as a documentary, exactly? I googled it today, (following the Beatles show from last night) and was surprised to find the video is up on Youtube.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ddtDTy_UuDA

There was a documentary on PBS decades ago on The Heart Of Darkness, the book, and it paralleled Apocalypse Now. It wasn't the movie about the horror of making the movie - this thing focused more on the book. At least I could've sworn it did. Any search for "The Heart Of Darkness" typically returns Apocalypse Now.

Anybody have a clue what I'm talking about?
