"Walt Jabsco was the name of the 2 Tone logo man.

"The difference is that when the guys in Genesis were teenagers, their way of rebelling against formulaic pop was to say, 'Our album is going to be a musically complex re-creation of the Book of Revelation,' instead of 'Let's play songs that are 90 seconds long and jump into the crowd.'" David Weigel on the awesomeness that is Prog Rock.

Tin Drum

Wed, 24 May 2017 11:01:02 -0600

Neil McGlone on Volker Schlöndorff's adaptation of Günter Grass's novel The Tin Drum, for Criterion. The film is always in my top films of all time and shared the Palme d'Or with FFC's Apocalypse. That same year, Malick won Best Director for Days of Heaven. Pretty solid line-up at Cannes in 1979, I'd say.

"Two weeks after I finished with everything, he and I were talking. He asked me what I thought about human beings. I said one thing about human beings is that everything that is mechanical, that is invented, is very sexual." Art of the Title chats with Pablo Ferro about Kubrick and the credit sequence from Dr. Strangelove.
