Another Hole in the Head: Violence, Depravity, Children's Cartoons

Another Hole in the Head And why not another hole, anyway? Maybe it's just five-hole chauvinism that suggests that a sixth is unneeded — and there's probably been a film about the joys of trepanation at the Another Hole in…

Bouncer Seeks Absolution at Locanda

So, like, Locanda is apparently a restaurant. I didn't realize that until I crossed the threshold. Food & Wine listed it as a "must" on Valencia for its cocktails and bar snacks, so naturally I made a mental note to…

"Bert Stern: Original Madman": A Pioneer of Famous-Naked-Lady Photography

Having come up through Look magazine with Stanley Kubrick, whom he recalls, not unapprovingly, as "like his movies: mean, cruel, and finding weaknesses in people," Bert Stern later made the iconic photo of lollipop'd Sue Lyon in heart-shaped shades that…

Os Mutantes: Show Preview

Don't get your hopes up: Fool Metal Jacket, the new ninth record from Brazilian tropicália veterans Os Mutantes, is not a tongue-in-cheek concept record based on Stanley Kubrick's legendary war flick. Bandleader and sole original member Sérgio Dias Baptista instead…

™Heeeeeeere's Neil Armstrong!

In 1980, Stanley Kubrick made the legendary horror film The Shining. All these years later, the film continues to inspire speculation — including plenty of conspiracy theo-ries. Room 237, a new documentary by Rodney Ascher, does its best to explore…

The Year in Film: 10 Movies to Watch in 2013

Alex in Wonderland

A Clockwork Orange, Anthony Burgess’s brilliant, slang-infused 1962 novella of disturbed and disturbing youth, is one tough read. Stanley Kubrick’s harrowing 1971 film is more, ahem, penetrable, but remains an unapologetically tough sit, even at this late date. Starring a…
