In the words of Stanley Kubrick’s cult classic A Clockwork Orange, we like to “viddy well, my droogs.” That means we like to watch the movies. And just as in our perks with books, watching movies comes with the territory of running a magazine because we need to — and want to — review documentaries (and other films) for you.
It’s always so exciting when a new documentary comes in the mail and we set aside the time to pop some organic popcorn, pour some local craft brews and settle in to check out the chops of an up-and-coming filmmaker or the work of our Transition friends in the UK or the work of a more established voice or even a blockbuster that’s playing on the big screen across the country. We even like pulling essential documentaries from the last few years out of the vault to make sure you don’t miss them.
We take seriously the role of conveying to you the content of a film and how it approaches our key issues — peak oil, global warming, farming, food, energy, politics, society, culture and the economy. We even like to tell you when our friends makes something cool, like the new piece You are here: The Oil Journey, by Post Carbon Institute.
And in addition to reviewing films, we take great pleasure in finding funny video bits to share with you, dear readers. And dig them up we do, from folks like Jon Stewart, The Juice News Media’s Rap News, political parodies and fake ads that skewer the energy industry.
Maybe we have too much fun. Please help us to continue to.
There’s nothing like the flicker of the silver screen.
