FILM: Angel of Nanjing

FILM: Angel of Nanjing

Chen Si believes in a certain ‘live-no-matter-what-personal-horrors-one-encounters’ ethos. It’s a good dose of individual responsibility mixed with as much Communist philosophy that to commit suicide is as much a personal tragedy as a move against the state. Not that one would expect anything less from the actual angel of Angel of Nanjing, as he mans his weekend post, attempting to talk people down, in some cases even grab them off the ledge, before jumping to their death off The Yangtze River Bridge in China.

This movie, showing many great candid stills from that conversation as well as keeps a running commentary of the actual interview from the notes is interspersed with current interviews about both filmmakers from Wes Anderson, Paul Schrader, Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Arnaud Desplechin and Olivier Assayas.

Close To You: Remembering The Carpenters: P.B.S. Documentary

Close To You: Remembering The Carpenters: P.B.S. Documentary

This show tells the whole Carpenters story, with Richard himself sitting at the piano, as much talking about the band’s creation, signing, rise (and fall) as much tickling the keys showing how he came up with many of the infamous Carpenters arraignments…arraignments that saw the duo score three Grammy’s and countless gold record. Songwriters, Paul Williams, Burt Bacharach (who penned hit songs for the duo) and Herb Albert (who sgned the band to A&M) also appear, along with many ithers. But the real treat is the arahcieval footage of the band, some rare footage indeed, that;s included in the show.
