In Like a Lion,
Out Like a Lamb

These are some of the
Lemmy-approved reviews
I'm working on this month.

Amazon CDs: Bird York - Wicked Little High (featuring the Oscar-nominated song
"In the Deep" from best
picture winner Crash).

Amazon DVDs: Police Woman - The Complete First Season
[six-disc set] (above-average detective drama with Angie Dickinson as undercover cop "Pepper" Anderson), MacGyver -
The Complete Fifth Season
[five-disc set] (my fifth MacGyver review--yep, I'm now an official "Mac" expert!), Huff - The Complete First Season [three-DVD set] (Showtime dramedy
with Hank Azaria and Emmy-winner Blythe Danner), The Flintstones - The Complete Fifth Season [four-disc set] (my
second Flintstones review), Imagine Me & You (Brit
rom-com--with a Sapphic twist), Latter Days (gay Amerin-
die rom-com--with a Mormon twist), and The Story of Qiu Ju
(Zhang Yimou and Gong Li...before the former took up with the
younger Zhang Ziyi, who starred with Li in 2046 and Memoirs
of a Geisha
...so I assume it's all good).

Seattle International Film Festival: Proofread
several documents for the next Reel News quarterly.

Siffblog: Oscar-Nominated Documentary Shorts (The Death
of Kevin Carter
, The Mushroom Club, God Sleeps in Rwanda,
and On a Note of Triumph, the deserving winner), Histoire(s)
du Cinéma
(Jean-Luc Godard's monumental video essay on a
life in film), Metal - A Headbanger's Journey (possibly the most
thorough metal doc ever made--devil horns!), Hair High (full-
length feature from award-winning animator Bill Plympton), and
Voice of the Beehive
(new print of the haunting Spanish reverie).

Note: Lemmy image from the AMG. The Motörhead front
man features in Metal, which has been extended at the North-
west Film Forum
: April 1st and 2nd at 7 and 9pm. Don't miss it!
