This Private Italian Island For Sale Went Viral

Yes, your own private Italian island. If you'll excuse me...

Perpetually exhausted Eleanor Zissou is eminently relatable.

I'd settle for my own private Idaho. I'd settle very much, thank you. Also, look at this gorgeous poster by Jay Gordon for The Life Aquatic. I found it by accident while unsuccessfully searching for a still of Eleanor arriving to save the day in her rescue boat. (Why don't more of you internet people want to see that image?!)

You should get a poster. Go on, you deserve it.


Happy St. Patrick's Day

The Bollywood Detective Musical You've Been Missing - Jagga Jassoos

I love foreign film. Or as it's called in the originating country of each movie...film. I've waxed quixotic about the unsettling Swedish genius of Ingmar Bergman and the vulnerable, gut-wrenching glory of Francois Truffaut. Movies from Norway like Troll Hunter and New Zealand's Housebound blew my mind. The Host has one of the greatest scenes in modern movie history.

I grew up watching all the old Godzilla movies with my oldest sister...without subtitles. I just love movies. Where they come from is irrelevant to me.

But the Indian cinema affectionately dubbed "Bollywood" is what I return to most frequently. Anything lost in translation because of cultural differences only adds to the anesthetic effect of the world's most beautiful films. They remove you from your life so thoroughly, so pleasantly.

What We Do in the Shadows is coming to TV

If you're a fan of the movie, if you like magnificent weirdos, or if you're a human person of any kind, I sincerely think you're going to love this. It's Spinal Tap for the horror genre. I love it already. I pre-love it.

Check out the trailer below:

I'd also like to encourage you to check out the New Zealand film and television scene in general.
