The Black Dog Video Newsletter: Watch Us Edition!
As promised, we’ve begun to add swell new content to our new website – blackdogvideo.ca – and our Youtube channel. I’ve started doing a little piece (hopefully once a week) titled Films I Should Have Seen By Now in which I reveal some films that, well, I should have seen by now but for various reason have not. Check it out!
We’re also going to be adding a merch section to the new site just as soon as we get some merch! Looking at items such as mugs, hats, pins – that sort of thing – to go along with our famous T-Shirts. Any suggestions on things you’d like to see, let me know!
(should be on the shelves today or tomorrow)
Acasa, My Home – Fascinating doc about a family living in the delta outskirts of Bucharest for 20 years who were then forced to relocate to the big city. Be a bit of an adjustment, me thinks. Wonder if there’s still a video store in Romania?
Another Round – Mads Mikkelson is a teacher who, with four of his colleagues, tests a theory that by maintaining a certain level of booze in the system, it will improve their lives. Hmmm, sounds like a good test to me. I’ll get back to you.
Preparations to be Together for an Unknown Period of Time – Cool-looking, nourish mystery follows a woman who returns home to Budapest to be with her new lover but only to have the new lover claim to have never met her! Something’s afoot!
Rams – Sam Neill is a sheep farmer who is in a decades-long feud with his neighbor. Also a sheep farmer. Sheep-related hi-jinks, I presume, ensue.
Shadow in the Cloud – Strange, but cool, sounding mash-up of action, WWII and horror finds a female pilot encountering an evil presence on the B-17 she’s flying on. Or in. Not too sure which one is correct.
