Manakamana Captures The Entire Country Of Nepal In Just One Cable Car

Stephanie Spray and Pacho Velez’ Manakamana isn’t a film for everyone. Labelled as experimental, it comes with the territory that this isn’t your average doc with an identifiable beginning, middle, and end.

The Imitation Game Review: A Stirring Look At Turing's Tragic Life

Tod Browning's Freaks Did Sideshow Horror Before It Was Cool

Tod Browning’s Freaks is an interesting film both on and off the screen. For one, this 80-minute story of a collection of characters in a freakshow raised lots of controversy when it originally premiered in 1932, primarily because its actors were actual circus “freaks.” The film was so widely panned and controversial, needing extensive edits to even be screenable, the legendary director Browning never quite recovered as a director from the cinematic disaster.

How The Neverending Story Taught Us To Love 80s Synth-Pop

Exactly 30 years ago today, the world saw The NeverEnding Story for the first time. It was a time before CGI, when you had to make fantasy movies with puppets.

While you wiled away your weekend, an anniversary snuck by us: on July 5th, Seinfeld turned 25 years old.

The one-hour documentary Seinfeld: How it Began is required watching for any die-hard fan.


That Time I OD'd On Pot Drugs And Watched Apocalypse Now Redux

Remember that time columnist Maureen Dowd went to Colorado, holed up in her hotel room, ate some pot candy, and freaked out because she ate way too much? And remember how everybody was making fun of her? Well, I identified with that story a little too much. I know those feels, Maureen.


Can You Really Train Cockroaches Like On Orange Is The New Black?

In the season premiere of Orange Is the New Black, our beaten-down protagonist Piper starts off on a very wrong foot with her new bunkmates in prison — she steps on a cockroach.
