Gawping and Film Essays

After your done gawping at my brand new blog design (stunning aint it) you should head over to the Criterion Collection Online Cinematheque to check out some very well written essays on movies you probably haven't heard of.  Yes, 90% of the criterion collection is old, arty or foreign language (or some combination of the three) but thats no reason to miss out on some fine film critique and expand the old horizons..

Heres a few of the more recognizable subjects that I enjoyed:

Why we feel icky watching Peckinpah's Straw Dogs  

A boozy, winding but interesting reprinted discussion (or is it a monologue) from Robert Mitchum

An insiders look at why Wes Anderson is awesome 

A look at the genius/insanity of Guy Maddin
