Deep Red (Profondo Rosso) - Director's Cut (1975) ****

I prefer the shorter version. This version is overlong and drags. I don't feel that the scenes that were dropped for the 105 minute version add any true substance to the film.

David Bowie 'Blackstar' (2016) ****1/2

I've given 'Blackstar' a number of listens now. I wanted to wait a week after Bowie's passing before settling on my star rating. Regardless of his passing and the album subsequently reaching #1 in the US (a first for Bowie), this album is incredibly strong and deserving of the praise it's receiving. I'm seeing a lot of reviewers call this album "jazzy". While there are some jazzy elements (re: saxophone), that's not really how I would classify it overall. It has plenty of dance/electronic and rock elements as well. It reminds me most of a combination of sounds that Bowie previously explored on 'Earthling', 'Outside', 'The Buddha Of Suburbia' and 'The Next Day'. The self-titled opener is a standout, as are the freaky "Girl Loves Me" and the closer "I Can't Give Everything Away", which still all but brings me to tears a week after DB's death. It's a weirdly unique/experimental album but simultaneously accessible. 'Blackstar' is a beautiful parting gift, bittersweet yet so perfectly Bowie.

"Sound And Vision"

Waking to the news of David Bowie's death yesterday morning was a doozy. To say he is a "Hero" is an incredible understatement (for me and for so many millions). It's safe to say that he is my favorite musical artist. I may not have all of his albums (just a few shy) and I might not know every detail of every part of his life (there was so much of it) but I have more music by him than any other artist and I continuously feel like I'm discovering and rediscovering his discography whenever I visit it.

It took some time for me to realize that Bowie is my favorite. I was familiar with a decent amount of his hit songs growing up, but it wasn't until my late teens/early twenties that I started collecting his albums, digging into the deep album cuts, and realizing how varied his catalog was. I can't name another artist that I feel is as diverse and eclectic, embracing so many genres (practically every one) and personalities.

But Bowie wasn't just a music artist, he was an actor as well. Sometimes he played small roles but they were always memorable. And he starred in one of my very favorite films, THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH, a role tailor-made for a man who many actually believe was truly not of this world. And let us not forget his iconic and endless contributions to the world of "Fashion".

The outpouring of love and admiration I saw on social media after the news hit was like none I've ever seen. Never have I seen so many people post about how crushed they were, post so many of his songs, express what he meant to them. It speaks to how his fans identified with so many different Bowies (and there were so many) - different eras, different personas, different albums, different performances. More than that, I can't think of any other artist besides Elvis or The Beatles who was so influential. Bowie was clearly influenced by those artists - innovators influencing another true innovator. He was literally the reason that thousands of people wanted to become musicians. Words like "legend" and "genius" are reserved for very few in my opinion and both apply to Bowie.

I never had the privilege of seeing him live and now I never will and that's one of the saddest parts of his passing for me. But I still have all his wonderful albums and we all will for as long as we live. I've often said that 'Low' is my favorite Bowie album (because as much as I love the man's voice, I also love his instrumentals), which I'm listening to as I write this, but it's almost ridiculous to pick a favorite album by him. He simply has too much phenomenal material to choose from. One of his greatest strengths was to surround himself with the very best musicians - people like Tony Visconti, Robert Fripp, Carlos Alomar, Rick WakemanMike GarsonMick Ronson and of course Brian Eno. "Under Pressure", which he co-wrote and performed with Queen, is one of the most powerful and instantly identifiable songs ever written, despite all the stupid commercials and films that use it inappropriately. He did the same with directors, making films with the likes of Nicolas Roeg, Nagisa Oshima, Jim Henson, Martin Scorsese, and David Lynch. It's all part of what made his legacy.

Bowie's last album, '' (Blackstar), was released on January 8th, 2016, his 69th birthday and just 2 days before he died. I only had the chance to listen to it once before he died but I listened to it again on my lunch break that day and I can tell it's going to go down as one of my favorites by him - it's really something special and unique, so very David Bowie. In the album's closing track he sings "I Can't Give Everything Away" but that's what you did Bowie, you gave us everything, you were everything. It's a bittersweet goodbye that will always remind me of how I felt the day I heard the news.

I'm not sure if I have a favorite Bowie song, but "Ashes To Ashes" is one of my very favorite songs (ever), one I consider to be perfect. I've posted it below, along with a 3-song tribute that my band, The Fitted Shirt, performing as The Shirts From Mars, played live in 2010, as well as photos of my Bowie CDs and Blu-rays of films he starred in.

Farewell David, you fell to Earth and perhaps you've returned to your home planet but your presence will always be remembered here.

Singin' In The Rain (1952) ****

The Revenant (2015) ****

Iñárritu channels Malick but leaves the poetry and heart at the door and replaces it with carnage. THE REVENANT is basically a 2 1/2 hour endurance test but a technically incredible, beautifully shot and sumptuously scored one. The film reminded me very much of THE NEW WORLD which cinematographer Lubezki also shot and I loved the score by Ryuichi Sakamoto but I felt a bit disconnected from it all, despite the many visceral and tense moments. I might just need another watch to decide if this deserves a higher or lower rating. 

What We Do In The Shadows (2014) ****

Sicario (2015) ****

Happy 5th Birthday, Blog!

My blog is 5 years old today!

Continuing the yearly trend, here's how many films I've watched:

2005 - 339 (that's a lot of films!)
2006 - 369 (wow, more films than days in the year!!)
2007 - 274 (quite the jump down!)
2008 - 270 (very similar to 2007)
2009 - 234 (steadily declining)
2010 - 188 (whoa, BIG drop)
2011 - 236 (back up from 2010 and on par with 2009
2012 - 253 (steadily climbing back up!)
2013 - 352 (damn, 2nd most, after 2006, since I started keeping track and almost 100 more than last year!)
2014 - 347 (didn't quite meet last year's track record)
2015 - 337 (declining a bit but still no slouch)

And here's every film that I watched last year, if you care to peruse.
