BUCKET OF BLOOD (1959/USA) directed by Roger Corman

ZELIG (1983/USA) directed by Woody Allen

Walter Paisley - coffee shop waiter and wannabe beatnik artist, stumbles into the limelight after the local hipster scene proclaims his accidental late-night creations are, in fact, “Art”.  Is Walter really the cats-meow, or just a victim of fashion?

Starring venerable character actor Dick Miller.

Screenplay by Charles B. Griffith, author of the original Little Shop of Horrors.

Zelig is writer-director-star Woody Allen’s utterly idiosyncratic take on a very serious subject - personal identity - hilariously told via the mutable character of “the chameleon man,” Leonard Zelig (Allen). In technically exquisite documentary style we are introduced to Leonard, who can’t help taking on the characteristics of those around him, and who thus becomes a strange sort of celebrity himself.  Co-starring Mia Farrow, and featuring dead-pan interviews with the likes of Susan Sontag, Saul Bellow, and Bruno Bettelheim - plus extraordinary archival footage offering glimpses of everyone from F. Scott Fitzgerald to Adolf Hitler.

In this outrageous spoof of the Flash Gordon movie serials of the 1930’s, Earth is thrown into carnal chaos by a mysterious sex ray emanating from outer space.  Flesh Gordon must travel to the planet Porno to save the Earth from certain devastation from the mad Emperor Wang.  If you’ve ever dreamed of seeing Star Wars with nudity, awkward sex scenes and

a stop-motion animated penisaurus -

you must see - FLESH GORDON !

THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI (1920/Germany) directed by Robert Wiene

The first thing everyone notices and best remembers about "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" (1920) is the film's bizarre look. The actors inhabit a jagged landscape of sharp angles and tilted walls and windows, staircases climbing crazy diagonals, trees with spiky leaves, grass that looks like knives. These radical distortions immediately set the film apart from all earlier ones, which were based on the camera's innate tendency to record reality.

                                    -Roger Ebert (2009)
