Radu Gabrea RIP

Radu Gabrea s-a dus Dincolo de Nisipuri :(
Avea 79 de ani. Filmele sale facute in anii '70 ar trebui revazute  Debutul sau, Prea mic pentru un razboi atit de mare (1969), Dincolo de nisipuri (1973). A placat in Germania in 1974, din cauza regimului care i-a operit filmul Dincolode nisipuri, unde a locuit si lucrat pina in 1990. Aici a facut un film extrem de apreciat, in maniera Fassbinder, despre regizor, cu actrita sa in rolul principal-Eva Mattes, Ein Mann Wie EVA (1984).
Dupa '90 Radu Gabrea a facut docu-drame, ecranizari.: Rosememil, Cocosul decapitat,  Manusile rosii, Calatoria lui Gruber.
Ultimul film, anul trecut, Imparateasa rosie, despre Ana Pauker. Image result for radu gabrea

Gold -the soundtrack -plays all songs
score-ul va aparea oficial doar pe 3 martie la Varese Sarabande ! banuiesc ca e vorba de muzica lui Daniel Pemberton, excelenta ! Actiunea filmului se intimpla in 1978 si Stephen Gaghan a ales piese care sa sune catchy, not the obvious choices, citeva trishuri si un regal, real golden>

1. Gold – Iggy Pop
piesa compusa  de Igg (as james Ostenberg :), alaturi de Daniel Pemberton si produsa de Danger Mouse
Piesa noua pentru Iggy si care nah, merita o nominalizare la Oscar, la fel ca si McConaughey !!! 

2. Ron Klaus Wrecked His House – Big Dipper
3. This Must Be The Place (Naïve Melody) – Kishi Bashi
trupa noua, dar piesa e a lui David Byrne , cu Talking Heads -e si un film care i-a dat titlul...
4. Spill The Wine – The Isley Brothers
piesa din 1971
5. I Want To See The Bright Lights Tonight – Richard and Linda Thompson
6. Rip It Up – Orange Juice
7. Temptation – New Order
8. Hey – Pixies
9. Atmosphere – Joy Division

10. 1880 Or So – Television

Desperados Waiting For A Train - SOTD

"I'd play the Red River ValleyAnd he'd sit out in the kitchen and cryAnd run his fingers through seventy years of livin'And wonder, "Lord, has ever' well I've drilled run dry?"We were friends, me and this old manLike desperados waitin' for a trainLike desperados waitin' for a trainHe's a drifter and a driller of oil wellsAnd an old school man of the worldHe let me drive his carWhen he's too drunk toAnd he'd wink and give me money for the girlsAnd our lives were like some old western movieLike desperados waitin' for a trainLike desperados waitin' for a trainFrom the time that I could walk he'd take me with himTo a bar called the Green Frog CafeThere were old men with beer guts and dominosLying 'bout their lives while they'd playedAnd I was just a kidThey all called his "Sidekick"Like desperados waitin' for a trainLike desperados waitin' for a trainOne day I looked up and he's pushin' eightyAnd there's brown tobacco stains all down his chinTo me he's one of the heroes of this countrySo why's he all dressed up like them old menDrinkin' beer and playin' Moon and Forty-twoLike desperados waitin' for a trainLike desperados waitin' for a trainA day before he died, I went to see himI was grown and he was almost goneSo we just closed our eyes and dreamed us up a kitchenAnd sang another verse to that old song"Come on, Jack, that son of a guns are comin' "Like desperados waitin' for a train (x4)."
This song is by Guy Clark who died last year. It appears on the album "Old Number One" (1975)
He plays it live wonderfully here 
Played here live by country music's legendary first "supergroup,", THE HIGHWAYMEN, featuring Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and Kris Kristofferson.
Their cover of Guy Clark's "Desperados Waiting for a Train" appeared on their 1st album , Highwaymen (1985) and reached the Top 20. (Clark is frequently referred to as "The Fifth Highwayman".)

Kung Fury !!!

This thing has been around til 2015 and no one told me about it !
so I gotta tell ya all and spread the news -cos it's FUNtastic and you'll love it !!!
le poster !
Sweedish wiz kid David Sandberg created this ! He also acted as KUNG FURY, a combination of Karate Kid and Cobra -Cobretti, a superkungfucop living -and kicking ass- in (Crockett;'s) Miami 1985 that goes back in time to kick Adolf Hitler's ass (Jorma Tacone as Hitler, the KUNG FUHRER, the guy who directed Macgruber !)
plus dinosaurs, laser-raptors, Hackerman, Barbarianna, Thor, Katana and  Triceracop !!
and VHS glitches !!!
as mash-up/fan movies go this is most fun and original and...FUN (sorry Timo, but way funnier than yr Star Wreck and Iron Sky, which are in the same vein)

Sandberg spent 5.000 $ to create a TRAILER and then went to Kickstarter (see his pitch here) and raised 600.000 mostly for the post-production (see an VFX breakdown here) and the result is just WOW!!!
Even Cannes was impressed so this made a special presentation on Semaine de la Critique in 2015 !!!!
Variety was so impressed that called it: Most Awesome Project in Cannes !!!
Comic-On (San Diego) was all head over heels (see here ).
right now they are working on the follow-up, Kung Fury II: The Movie, announced for 2018 !
can't wait ! Kudos, guys !!!
right now the youtube screener has almost 27 milllion views !!!!!
Key element of cultdom:
brilliant 80's pastiche music by Mitch Murder (aka Johan Bengstonn) and Lost Years with the contribution of The Hoff,-yes, David Hasselhoff , who has a song, TRUE SURVIVOR in the film  (and a cameo as Hoff 9000) ! check out the awesome :) video (shot in Sweden) !
4 out of 5 !!! for the fun factor and awesomness 0-and hard work !
