so i finally missed a week altogether. that's not good. as a redemptive act, i offer you the trailer for jacob hatley's ain't in it for my health: a film about levon helm (2010). it's finally getting a wider theatrical release and if you've ever wondered what a true american treasure looks like, here's your answer.

this week's entry has creepy potential. i give you james wan's the conjuring (2013).


he's got the look

not one sun-dappled, waving wheat-covered horizon was left pensively un-peered into. no ecstatically tortured embrace was spared in bringing you this major motion picture event.

terry, come on, buddy.

there may be no movie i want to see this year more than this week's entry, molly bernstein and alan edelstein's deceptive practice: the mysteries and mentors of ricky jay (2012).

this week's super late entry is for janus films' new restoration of fred c. newmeyer and sam taylor's safety last!(1923), starring harold lloyd.

this pristine new print is currently touring the u.s. and you can read more about the restoration and see the screening schedule here. if you are lucky enough to live in one of those cities you should really take advantage of this opportunity to see a bit of film history the way it was meant to be seen.
