This long awaited biodoc on Motorhead/Hawkwind frontman, Lemmy Kilmister is heavy on the lore, so so on the live music seen in the film and way too fan created throughout. Honestly, "Lemmy" may go down as having the most slow motion walking towards the camera shots in any film ever made. We get it, Lemmy Kilmister is cool personified but there should be no need for window dressing as the best scenes in the film are the times when Lemmy just talks to the camera or to his son. The way he speaks, thinks or even the small moments where he lights up while handling the odd WW2 combat knife are the real gems of this film. The live footage is there though more could've been better, especially during the segments when they discuss his earlier and much less appreciated band, Hawkwind. As that would've served you in understanding his development as the Lemmy we all know now. A good film but one that should've been a been more objectively done.
Was so glad the Coolidge showed a remastered print of this last night. It's playing again tonight. This is a mostly ignored Tobe Cooper gem, made at the height of slasher films but isn't one of them. It brilliantly plays on how horror tropes were subverted during that time and returns it to it's core. The use of the younger brother as an observer to all that is happening, creating an almost dreamlike feel for most of the film was brilliant.
In Azazel Jacobs film The Good Times Kid, the lives of two unrelated men, both named Rodolfo Cano, intertwine during a 24 hour time window in LA. They are both brought together when one of the Rodolfo's in mistaken by the US Army for the other, who has enlisted into the service. Thrown in the middle is Diaz, well played by the luminescent Sara Diaz, who toggles between the two when deciding her own future. What plays out is quite reminiscent to the early films of Jim Jarmusch, complete with understated performances, key musical moments and the saving grace of the film, stunning cinematography by Eric Curtis and director Jacobs. An extremely charming an interesting film that slipped under the radar back in 2005 but deserves a good look.
The finest German director of his generation. There is so much of his work that should make it to everyone's top list. This is a complex viewing from the performances to the script.
