Racing Dreams

Vroom to grow.


Documentary

Rod Lott
How many pre-teens not only have a idea of what they want to do with their life, but actually already are doing something about it? The answer: At least three, based upon those you'll meet in Racing Dreams, a fun, fast-paced, feature-length documentary about kids competing for the national karting championship as they chase hopeful NASCAR futures.

Mutant Girls Squad

Yes, another story about teen girls with octopus arms.


Action

Rod Lott
If you thought the X-Men series could use schoolgirl uniforms and tools protruding from naughty bits, have the Sushi Typhoon guys got a movie for you! It's called Mutant Girls Squad and, being from Japan, is three times crazier than America would think to make, or have the guts.

A Necessary Death

Suicide isn’t painless.


Drama

Rod Lott
Gilbert Toma had an original, envelope-pushing idea for his film school thesis project: Document the final days of someone who has decided to end his or her life, including the actual act of suicide. One Craigslist ad seeking such a subject later, 142 tapes were shot, and the end result is A Necessary Death.

The Awakening

Mummy dearest.


Horror

Rod Lott
As someone who loves mummy movies, I’ve long had The Awakening on my radar, but only now has the 1980 horror thriller come within reach, thanks to Warner Archive. While the film's rep isn't sterling by any stretch, I found it to be a nice surprise.

Goon

Not quite as puckish as it would like, but close enough.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Coming from a family of doctors, yet being nothing more than a bar bouncer, Doug Glatt (Seann William Scott, American Reunion) feels down in the dumps, because he lacks "a thing." That changes when, defending his gay brother's honor from a homophobic slur at a hockey game, he punches the offending player with such power, the guy's helmet cracks open.

Simply Red: Live at Montreux 2003

No longer holding back the years.


Documentary

Rod Lott
Don't tell anyone, but in my first year of high school, I owned a couple of Simply Red cassettes, purchased from Sound Warehouse. If you clicked on the link to read this review, it's likely you did, too.

Lucky Devils

'Devils' made me do it.


Drama

Rod Lott
It's fun to compare Lucky Devils — a 1933 RKO Picture about stuntmen — to something more contemporary, like 1980's The Stunt Man or even last year's Drive. According to this fun flick, safety was like an afterthought, with the guys who were risking their lives getting the scene explained to them once, quickly and just before the director called, “Action!”
