Review: Dirty Pictures

Subversive chemistry
At one point, Dirty Pictures transports us to Burning Man, where we watch a pack of free spirits cruising around the desert in flame-spewing tentacle-mobiles. Which is exactly the kind of blissy neon bacchanalia that springs to mind when we think of recreational Ecstasy use. But what started it all?

Review: Bananas!

You'll never want to eat a banana again
The banana as we know it is quickly marching toward extinction, thanks to inbreeding at the hands of big agribusiness. But don’t worry — after watching this documentary from Swedish filmmaker Fredrik Gertten, you’ll never want to eat a banana again. Bananas!* opens with a funeral and gets only grimmer from there.

Boston Underground Film Festival 2010

BUFF 2010 pays homage to cinematic fromage
The Boston Underground Film Festival has a knack for showing you things you've never seen before (not to mention things you can never un-see, such as the sentient penis jackhammering its way through sheetrock in last year's headlining Bad Biology ). BUFF 2010 proves no exception, starting with the exquisitely weird opening-night entry, LOVE EXPOSURE (2008; March 25 at 7 pm).

Review: District 13: Ultimatum

Balletic beatdowns aplenty
In 2004, Luc Besson's District B13 [ Banlieue 13 ] wall-jumped its way into our hearts by thrusting the urban acrobatics of parkour onto the big screen.

Darkness with a capital 'D'
Corpse paint, odes to the underworld, music that summons the brutal, cut-to-the-bone Arctic chill of Scandinavia — this is Norwegian black metal.

52 ways to leave 2009

Get your New Year's Eve down to an Auld Lang science.
Your usual lackadaisical approach to New Year's Eve — just see what happens and go with the flow — is not going to cut it this year. Sure, the end of this decade may not have the same kind of new-millennium pressure riding on it as the last one, but the plunge into 2010 is a milestone nonetheless.
