Description: "The Squid and the Whale is ceaselessly original, eccentric, and funny.
Noah Baumbach's account of a dysfunctional family, in particular the effects of joint custody on two brothers, is so weird, you just know it's not the kind of stuff you could ever make up. And indeed, The Squid and the Whale is Baumbach's autobiography of a, to say the least, awkward, adolescence.
Laura Linney and Jeff Daniels are just brilliant as the newly separated couple, Joan and Bernard, parents of Frank (Owen Kline -- yes, Kevin's son), the youngest boy, and teenager Walt (Jesse Eisenberg). Joan and Bernard compete as parents, and professional writers, and their kids take sides -- Owen gravitating toward his mother, a rising star author,while Walt gallantly defends his father, a formerly successful writer who can't get anything published.
If nothing seems too remarkeable about this broken home slice of life, well, I wouldn't make any judgements too quick, because The Squid and the Whale is delightfully unpredictable and unexpected, with a really unique sense of humor, about some very biting realities nonetheless.
In the end, it's Walt's story -- he struggles to find his own, personal rhythm in life, doing impressions of the father he idolizes, without even realizing it. And Frank acts out in an increasingly odd, though strangely self-assured fashion, taking up a pretty substantial drinking habit and leaving his mark around the school (you'll just have to watch the film to find out what I mean by that last part...).
The comedy largely arises from the often, I want to say, nutty, behaviors and conversations of the characters -- a mother who isn't a fan of discretion when telling her sons about her personal life and doesn't seem to have an ounce of interest in their father, the man she married (perhaps too hastily), a father who's as self-absorbed as he is unaware of the fact that he's self-absorbed, and their two confused boys who must cope with living in their two different worlds,
The Squid and the Whale is such a wild, novel approach to its sensitive subject matter and the pitch-perfect performances, from each cast member (of special note are the inspired performances by both its youngest stars), make it impossible to not take a long, good look at it and ponder its total originality."

Description: The town of Deadwood, South Dakota in the weeks following the Custer massacre is a lawless sinkhole of crime and corruption. Into this uncivilized outpost ride a disillusioned and bitter ex-lawman, Wild Bill Hickok, and Seth Bullock, a man hoping to find a new start for himself. Both men find themselves quickly on opposite sides of the legal and moral fence from Al Swearengen, saloon owner, hotel operator, and incipient boss of Deadwood. The lives of these three intertwine with many others, the high-minded and the low-lifes who populate Deadwood in 1876.

Description: The story takes place in a newly built city, after the world has run out of all forms of conventional energy. In this city a new source of energy is used: excrements. The leaders of the city pass two new laws to generate and control the new energy: 1) There is an ID-chip installed in every citizen´s anus to monitor their defecation level. 2) For each defecation the citizen receives a bright blue, suckable "juicybar" (which contains addictive substances). As a result, defecation amounts have rocketed, but the addictive nature of the juicybars has created an illegal trade market. As a side effect of the juicybars some people have mutated into blue, penisless, dwarf-sized mutants. As these mutants are unable to defecate, they form the "diaper-gang" to attack and plunder juicybar-transports.
And this is just what we are told in the first two minutes of the film! I´m not making this up, I swear. But whatever these South Koreans mix into their food, I want to have it too.

Description: The documentary is introduced by a set of titles informing the viewer that Albert Einstein's brain was extracted after his death in 1955 and that it was donated to the Princeton Medical Center. We then meet Kenji Sugimoto, professor of mathematics and science at the Kinki University of Osaka. In broken English, he describes what Einstein means to him:
"Einstein teaches me about love as well as science. Passion, love and science. I love Albert Einstein."
Thus, he embarks on a pilgrimage to Princeton to find the legendary cerebrum. Once there, he learns that the brain has been misplaced, and the film documents his subsequent travels across the United States to recover it. The last person known to handle the item is Thomas Stoltz Harvey, a man it proves difficult to find. One lead sends Sugimoto to the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, where a former associate of Harvey's, Dr. Harry Zimmerman, informs the unlikely pilgrim that the man he is seeking in fact is dead.
Sugimoto next tracks down Einstein's granddaughter by adoption, Evelyn Einstein. She tells him she has reason to believe she actually is biologically related to Einstein, and has been in dialogue with an institute to compare her DNA to that of the late scientist's brain. The brain sample used for this was sent from Harvey's residence in Lawrence, Kansas, giving Sugimoto a possible lead to the brain's current whereabouts.
Once in Kansas, it appears Zimmerman was misinformed; Thomas Harvey is still very much alive.

Description: In 1990, a massive star ship bearing a bedraggled alien population, nicknamed "The Prawns," appeared over Johannesburg, South Africa. Twenty years later, the initial welcome by the human population has faded. The refugee camp where the aliens were located has deteriorated into a militarized ghetto called District 9, where they are confined and exploited in squalor. In 2010, the munitions corporation, Multi-National United, is contracted to forcibly evict the population with operative Wikus van der Merwe in charge. In this operation, Wikus is exposed to a strange alien chemical and must rely on the help of his only two new 'Prawn' friends.

Description: The World's First LEGO® Video Nasty!
I can't remember why we decided to make a LEGO horror movie, but some time in 1999 myself, (Tim Drage), and my friend and partner in brickfilm crime Tony Mines, did. I think we were inspired mainly by the aquisition of a LEGO skeleton figure and by the increasing levels of violence and evil in the supposedly war-toy-free LEGO range. So we customised some minifigs, built a rudimentary graveyard from plasticine and card, and using my trusty Super-8 Cine camera and some lovely monochrome stock I had recently purchased, began filming indiscriminitely. We animated heedless of such niceties as continuity, making sense or getting the shots in focus. There was some vague semblance of a plot in which explorers discover an ancient thingy which makes the dead rise from their graves, followed by random violence and intertextual references. It's quite a broad and vague parody encompassing horror genres including silent movies, 60's-70's indie horror, 80's gore, and 90's stupididy.
We shot various footage intermittently whenever we got round to it, and in August 2000 we finally managed to edit together something loosely resembling a movie. It was one of the first few brickfilms on the internet.
