NEW ARRIVALS: DVD - By Brakhage Vol. 2 + The Doors!

BY BRAKHAGE: An Anthology, Volume Two 3xDVD
*** HIGHLY RECOMMENDED "Working outside the mainstream, Stan Brakhage made nearly four hundred films. Challenging all taboos in his exploration of birth, sex, death, and the search for God, Brakhage turned his camera on explicit lovemaking, childbirth, even autopsy. Many of his most famous works pursue the nature of vision itself and transcend the act of filming. Some, including the legendary Mothlight, were made without using a camera at all. By Brakhage: An Anthology, Volume Two is comprised of thirty astonishing works from 1950s films to his final work, from 2003."

DOORS When You're Strange DVD
*** "Graced(!) by the narration of Johnny Depp, this 90-minute presentation features never-before-seen rare archival film, pulled from their inception in 1966 to Morrison's passing in 1971. These snapshot scenes of the band's history is as much an intimate experience, as it is revealing."
