July, July

July, July, July
It never seemed so strange.
-- The Decemberists

Here are the reviews I'm
working on for this month.

Amazon: Carnivàle - The Complete Second Season [six-disc set]
(I also reviewed the first season), Our Brand Is Crisis (revealing
doc about the American-consulted campaign of a Bolivian presiden-
tial candidate), Dashboard Confessional - Dusk and Summer (louder, less whiny), Joshua Radin - We Were Here, Widespread Panic - Earth to America, Greg Graffin - Cold as the Clay (Bad Religion singer goes solo), the Long Winters - Putting the Days to Bed (third release from John Roderick's local combo), David Ford - I Sincerely Apologize For All The Trouble I've Caused, Palm World Voices - Mandela [CD/DVD/book/map combo] (Oscar-nominated, Jonathan Demme-produced doc), Lois & Clark - The New Adventures of Superman: The Complete Third Season [six-disc set] (I loved this show back in the day, i.e. the mid-90s), and Live - Songs From the Black Mountain.

Siffblog: The Gang's All Here (Busby Berkeley's technicolor
extravaganza with Carmen Miranda), two by Luc Moullet: Brigitte and Brigitte (with Samuel Fuller and Claude Chabrol!) and A Girl is a Gun (with Jean-Pierre Léaud), and Dominick Moll's Lemming (with the Charlottes Rampling and Gainsbourg).
