Educate Yo'self: Check Out Some Documentaries

Posted By on Mon, Jan 7, 2008 at 11:45 AM


Let it be about the journey of some teenagers in Spellbound or a naughty journey toward some teenagers in Capturing the Friedmans, a well-made documentary makes for a great movie and shows us that life can be stranger than fiction. Kevin Kelly, one of the founding fathers of Wired Magazine, has released his "200 Documentaries You Must See Before You Die" book on his site as a free pdf file download. I've also discovered QuickSilverScreen, a website that suffers from fantasticular cancer where you can watch free movies. It may not have the biggest library of flicks, but g'head and cross off some of those documentaries or films you've been wanting to see. —James Y Lee

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
