Judgment at Nuremberg
Les Blank: Always For Pleasure
- Excerpt: Les Blank: Always For Pleasure is simultaneously sumptuous and gratifying in the same way that stories told by reminiscing grandparents garner nostalgia for a time and place you never knew, yet you feel the heart and soul of this culture now gone still surging on with a strangely natural exuberance. Blank’s ability to capture the sheer joys of life through honest, intimate situations, while capturing a wide view of one’s cultural heritage is absolutely unparalleled. No release this year bears such great historical importance and still possesses the ability to inspire cinematic elation.
When The Wind Blows
- Excerpt: Though a work of harsh satirical brutality, When The Wind Blows is a British animated classic that stands upon its clear eyed creative originality as a means to remind us that war may not seem to effect us from its great distance, but it surely does, whether you choose to ignore the facts or not.
