Bong Joon-ho’s “Mother” thrills and spiritually engages

In a film climate where little substance appears to be occurring in the mainstream, it is nice to see a film like “Mother” (Madeo). What viewers are privy to is an incredibly gripping, thematically complex, and beautifully directed thriller by Bong Joon-ho. Now that it has won the 2010 Asian Film Award for best picture, it looks like it has the potential to be a runaway success.

Joanna Newsom’s latest is ‘One’ to be reckoned with

Four years ago, in a duet with Smog’s Bill Callahan, Joanna Newsom sang “I love you truly, or I love no one.” Curious, how in a career seemingly ridden with fantasy allusions and eccentricity, the conclusion to one of her greatest songs was something as relatable and emotional as that.

“Good Rockin’ Tonight” Reintroduces Legend to New Generation

Elvis Presley is currently associated with screechy blue-haired queens in Memphis, placing wreaths on his grave while talking about how they saw him last night in their hotel rooms.
