    Freewheelin'

    ★★½

    This is some kind of weird hybrid documentary/skate video/scripted drama thing about Stacy Peralta and west coast skate scene in the late 70’s. I put it on to laugh at the goofy barefoot old school skaters but the footage is really just great. It’s got tons of well shot footage of skating and surfing and even some hardcore 70’s BMX stuff. They made kids a lot tougher back then. But the reason to see this is for the killer footage of Russell Howell and his Tai chi freestyle skating. And Russell Howell doing anything really. Not to be missed.

    Mansfield 66/67

    ★★½

    An extremely padded documentary about the supposed relationship between Jane Mansfield and Anton LaVey. It’s funny and interesting but there’s barely enough here for a full film. The great interviews and the films sense of humor keep it interesting though.

    ★★★★

    I wish this was real. I wish reality was exactly like this film with all the UFO stuff. I want it lit and photographed by Robby Müller. I want a dope punk soundtrack playing all the time. I want to eat meat out of a can labeled only as "food". I want a glowing Chevy Malibu. I want to work with Harry Dean Stanton, he looks like an old sock and really knows how to wear hats. I also hear that "Harry Dean Stanton only uses REAL baseball bats". He's the shit.

    ★★★

    I fucking loved this shit! This film has the best kills ever! A rapey Bigfoot rips a guy's dick off! Then he grabs two Girl Scouts and makes them stab themselves like "stop stabbing yourselves". Just when you think it can't get better Bigfoot goes all Petey Pablo and rips a guy's guts out, twists it round his hand then waves it like a helicopter!
