Short Description: 
Arrington De Dionyso and Professor Gall

This week I'll be taking you back in time, all the way to February 19th, 2010 at the Artistery, an all-ages house basement and gallery venue here in Portland. The performance was in support of Arrington De Dionyso's new album release Malaiktat Dan Singa out on K Records.  Most folks interested in indie music have heard, or seen Old Time Relijun. Most folks interested in avant-garde and free jazz have witnessed Arrington perform solo. Now, if you are a fan of both -- as only a few are -- you will definitely dig a live performance of Malaiktat Dan Singa. Full of the brash punkish psychedelic energy of Old Time Relijun --but this is Arrington's band! -- he will sing as he desires, solo on the bass clarinet, and go as far in to a trance as he can.

Global Perspective: 33rd International Film Festival

Categories:

The benefits of seeing films from other countries are big. Not only can you take your experience to the bar, cafe, or water cooler, and brag on your worldliness, but there is an authentic experience happening in your heart when you open the mind to perspectives outside your own world-view. I personally only had time for two screenings and I chose them by country: Spain and Japan.

Shutter Island and Happy Tears, open today (Feb. 19) and a short rant about "indie movies"

Categories:

Shutter Island
Director: Martin Scorsese
With: Lenoardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Max von Sydow, Michelle Williams, Emily Mortimer, Patricia Clarkson, etc.

(This will be a no-spoiler review.)
I had the opportunity to interview Dennis Lehane when he toured through Portland for this book.  Lehane is one of the finest crime writers in the world, and his books are among those said to transcend genre.  Shutter Island was a gripping and disturbing book, with a peculiar hallucinatory quality.  So, I despaired that this could be well translated to the screen.
Enter Scorsese, who turns out to be up to the task, mostly.  In his defense, as though he needs me to defend him, no one could do this book compete justice.

Movies to check out this week

The Portland International Film Festival continues at the NW Film Center this week. I haven't seen as many this year as I'd like to, but the ones I have seen have been good. Recommendations (be sure to check nwfilm.org for an updated schedule):

Bluebeard
France
dir: Catherine Breillat
(6pm Thurs, 6pm Fri, and 3pm Sun)

Catherine Breillat is brilliant but a little wacky. Her films aren't for everyone, but if you like her previous work (Sex Is Comedy, The Last Mistress, among others), Bluebeard will be a treat. It's a retelling of the bloody fairy tale about a wealthy ogre of a man whose new brides keep disappearing.

Chrome Wings live on Un|Herd, Feb 22 at 10pm

Join me and Chrome Wings on Feb. 22 for an electro-dub-noise trip on Un | Herd at the usual 10pm. Chrome Wings is the rotating door of one Jon Jurow, a North Portland scene fixture whose project described above has taken many more shapes and sounds than you'll hear on this show. We can't go back to the past, but you can do your research. Chrome Wings' debut LP is due for release on Sohitek Records in March, with a follow up EP release on Stunned in April.
