Morgan Spurlock: on Product Placement

Morgan Spurlock: on Product Placement

Incredibly, a third of the budget for the next James Bond movie will be provided by product placement. Morgan Spurlock can top that. POM Wonderful Presents THE GREATEST MOVIE EVER SOLD was financed entirely by companies looking to shill their stuff not-so-subliminally on screen. Is this just good business or the cutting edge of Orwellian brainwashing? What do YOU think? [...]

Duncan Jones: on Existence

Duncan Jones on Existence

If I could travel back in time, I would urge more folks to see MOON, Duncan Jones‘ debut, hard sci-fi feature that melded the cinematic sensibilities of Peter Hyams and Tarkovsky. MOON is far superior and thoughtful entertainment to movies made with twenty times the budget. Today, I needn’t bend the space-time continuum as Duncan’s second movie, SOURCE CODE plays [...]

Dick Cantwell: on Beer

Dick Cantwell: on Beer

The average American drinks about 20 gallons of beer every year. Not all of the it is less filling and not all of it tastes great, but with the recent explosion of alternative breweries, micro and not-so-micro, beer is now more diverse than wine and, arguably, more widely appreciated. Dick Cantwell, founder of Seattle’s beloved Elysian Brewery, visits The High Bar — which this week is at his very own venue! — to raise a toast to and raise the bar for… Beer. Cheers!
