This sounds completely ****ed up.
Werner Herzog | The Talks
I own one single suit that I’m wearing right now and in the last 25 years I’ve never had another suit. And the shoes that I’m wearing I’ve been wearing for 3 years and they are my only pair of shoes. I need to replace them because they are starting to come apart.
I don’t need 20 pairs of shoes. I have a car that I’ve had for 12 years. It’s fine, I enjoy life and things are very basic. I don’t have social networks in the Internet for example. I don’t even have a cell phone. I’m probably the last holdout.
Signing Off on the Documentary Channel Blog | Documentary Channel
Tsk. I was actually looking for the Documentary channel the other day and couldn't find it. I looked through Pivot's schedule and saw that it's not got much of interest to me.Beginning tomorrow, Documentary Channel will be no more. The new owners, Participant Media, are introducing their new channel, Pivot, in its place. Pivot sounds exciting, and while it won’t be a home solely for nonfiction films, you’ll still be able to regularly find documentaries there. Some of the Doc Channel staples I see dotting the Pivot schedule just over the next week or so include ReGeneration (which is also on tonight), Cafeteria Man, 8: The Mormon Proposition, Save the Farm, Bag It, Warrior Champions, Water Wars, Prosecutor, The War on Kids and American Teacher.

So what do you think of someone like David Fincher who does 60, 70 takes?
Werner Herzog: Who is this?
Zodiac, Fight Club, Se7en, The Social Network…
Werner Herzog: I haven't seen any of his films. I do not know who he is. But let him do it if the result is good.
Dang. My ribs are still sore, and I'm laughing so hard.
Rewind This! (2013) Review - Dread Central
By focusing on the fans, filmmakers, and pioneers of the format, director Josh Johnson and company have provided a nice framework to make a highly entertaining and somewhat profound statement about how society as a whole develops. VHS itself is the perfect medium to highlight the cultural split of the majority who aren’t as concerned with the historical significance and the minority who love and protect these increasingly ancient artifacts. This is the essence of geekdom and the main reason why Rewind This! is an important film: In setting out to make a movie about friends and fans who live movies, the sometimes overly obsessive love for film births a passionate stance on how those fans feel about society and what should be important to that society to protect and cherish. These geek collectors become the keepers of cool, in that respect, and that’s an important job in and of itself. It might have started out as a hobby, but now it’s your duty as a citizen of the world.
Rewind This! should be taught in schools and widely accessible, even if it’s only in digital format eventually. But maybe hide one or two VHS copies in the library so that one lucky kid might happen to stumble upon them some morning.
