FILM///NEWS///BANKSY’S MR BRAINWASH DOCUMENTARY “EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP” SCREENS IN BERLIN

February 16, 2010  |  art, Art Crimes, Banksy, Film, Graffiti, News, Next Big Thing, Street Art  |  Comments Off

Unsurprisingly, our man BANKSY didn't show up:

"An apparent press conference by “Exit Through the Gift Shop” director, and mysterious street artist, Banksy was canceled in Berlin today. A subject of the film, which debuted last month at the Sundance Film Festival, Banksy remains an incognito artist. He issued a video statement that was shown prior to the press screening of his movie on Sunday at the Berlinale, in lieu of a press conference.

He started by saying, in a recorded message, “Unfortunately I can’t be with you today, so I am speaking from my home in England via satellite link.”

“I guess my ambition was to make a film that would do for graffiti art what ‘Karate Kid’ did for martial arts, a film that would get every school kid in the world picking up a spray can and having a go,” said a silhouetted figure, identified as Banksy, in a digitally altered voice on the short video message. He added, “As it turns out, I think we might have made a film that does for street art what ‘Jaws’ did for water sking.” Click HERE to continue reading at INDIE WIRE...

FILM///”WHEN YOU’RE STRANGE (A FILM ABOUT THE DOORS)” NARRATED BY JOHNNY DEPP

February 12, 2010  |  Film, LA, Music, News  |  Comments Off

Our friends in THE DOORS camp have finally put together a proper cinematic tribute to LA's most important rock band. The film, narrated by JOHNNY DEPP, is a time capsule, composed entirely of footage shot between the group’s formation in 1965 and frontman Jim Morrison’s death in 1971. Director TOM DiCILLO's revealing documentary is a treasure trove of live performances, TV appearances, home movies, studio footage, and a never-before-seen independent film made called "HWY" by and starring Morrison. The movie will make its US theatrical debut at this summer's LA FILM FEST, June 18–28.

Mr Burns goes broke in this Simpsons spot...

Luckily yesterday's SUPER BOWL was all high drama as the SAINTS swept the COLTS because the million dollar commercials were pretty weak this year. Here's the ST recap of the game's best breaks...

watch ALL of them HERE
We can't vouch for Will.I.Am, but Manson AND Bin Laden in a Super Bowl Spot?!? This might just be the heaviest one ever...


We're totally sick of KISS and would be happy to never see Gene Simmons again, but seeing MINI KISS finally get their due gets our vote...


This really captures the daily disgust-itude of office life pretty nicely...


Amazing it took VW this long to embrace the ultimate corporate cultural phenomenon: "punch buggy"...


MUNO's big acting debut...


BETTY WHITE and ABE VIGODA getting sacked. Fantasy Football indeed...


DAVE and JAY feel the grudge in OPRAH's living room. Amazing...

THE BANNED MANCRUNCH SUPER BOWL AD (apparently guys feeling each other up in football uniforms is less "gay" than guys making out, somehow):
