Re: “Sonoma County Filmmakers

I am really trying hard to make shorts, but, it is hard in this town Santa Rosa. Once you get started people drop out or wan't more money to shoot, and edit. I have been trying to do it on my own, but I don't think it is festival worthy. I know there are film companies to join in S.F., but I need something more local, due to time limits. I'm going to try to make it to as much film festivals as I can this year. thank you, Real2Reel Productions

I think we have lost someone whose talents are yet to be appreciated. Bummer.

Re: “Inside Job

You people on the Boho have an amusing priority structure: here Rachel Dovey goes and uses up six full pages all but conferring sainthood on Will Parrish of the Anderson Valley Advertiser for bravely enough making a temporary fixture of himself on a CalTrans contract stitcher, and yet Leilani Clark rations out a paltry four rather anemic and inconsequential short paragraphs to what is indisputably the single most destructive hoax against the American people in their entire history: the triply misnomered so called "federal reserve bank" which is using the name "federal" fraudulently and in violation of Title XVIII USC 709 and is NOT a bank as lawfully defined. The "fed" is a foreign, privately owned credit cartel, not a "bank", and has been directly and feloniously responsible for sodomizing the American working people bowlegged out of their substance and their very lives often enough for almost exactly one century...and Leilani's comically brief remarks are tucked away on page 26 constituting a virtual subliminal frame for some readers. By intent most likely.
This celluloid, MONEY FOR NOTHING, may well be worth seeing, but I would be willing to bet rubies to dead cockroaches that nowhere in that film do they once mention that the i.r.s., in all its perfidy and gross violation of the Constitution, has never once been anything other than an armed collection agency for the "fed" and was bastard-spawned in the exact same year, 1913.
A lot more could be said but it would run into book length before I even got started so I drop it here.
If anyone wishes to see thee real and very ugly truth about the federal reserve prank, I cannot praise Aaron Russo's FREEDOM TO FASCISM too highly.

Re: “A Film Frenzy

I'm told the 8:00 show sold out days ago, and that they added a 10:00 show to accommodate all those who were shut out! The phone number above will not help.
Here is the link...

Re: “Not Exactly for Kids

So, when USA Fascists direst the killing of 2.5 million people for political reasons, this is good. And the killing never stopped. So far, the USA has directly killed more people than the old USSR. Even the artificial famines created for Capitalism far outdid the killing done by Stalin's artificial famines. And yet, even today, many so-called "conservatives" feel that anything done by Capitalism and by the USA government is "good", even if it is worse than what the old USSR did. Fascism, that old dirty word, is the only word capable of describing the evil we live with.

Re: “Masked Man(ure)

Good review. Sad to see Depp condemned to repeat his early brilliance as a blockbuster-enabling sleepwalker.

Re: “Damn You, Digital

Sorry, E.P.A. abatement is forth coming...Things change and water quality by the Fed's upon the NorthWest Coastal Rivers and tributaries cannot be circumvented by emotions....The failure of Monte Rio residents and business to pump sewage is tantamount to crimes against the environment....All uphill into a non-existant sewer pipe and water treatment Center..The County refusal to provide permits or prior Red-tagged buildings and parcels, has demolished app. one-fourth of the former buildings...All were similar as low lying along the Federal Russian River, U.S. Army Corps Warm Springs Dam Hatchery, Mill Creek, Felta Creek, Green Valley Creek, Mark West Creek, and DutchBill Creek,,,App. nine billion dollars annual is spent now, from Santa Cruz to Canada for water quality. Further operation of the Rio Theater may subject the owners to criminal prosecution by more ground water pollution. And inadequate toilet pumping service for patrons...Watch your money.....

Re: “Local Color

This movie has a lot of things in it's favor. There are at least three well-known actors I recognize from other work, and the acting is great all around. The photography is really great too and full advantage is taken of the Russian River area's terrain, bridges and quaint Guerneville itself. There are creative photographic elements involving special techniques as well ( don't want to spoil it.) I think the plot of a dynastic family getting away with near-murder in a small community isn't out of place either. The qustion of how often to look the other way or acquiesce to power is something we all ask ourselves, or should ask ourselves, on a regularly.

Re: “Down in Flames

That last sentence in the review didn't make any sense. Why does the author assume that pilots wouldn't talk a fair amount of smack when in the act of shooting down an enemy? Prayer before going up into the skies would seem like a commonplace act as well, especially so when one considers that the odds were fairly good that they wouldn't be returning. The reason for the CGI is simple; there simply aren't enough of the vintage planes depicted flying these days to make it practical to use them. So George Lucas used WW2 footage as the idea for Star Wars. How does that detract from the movie? There's nothing wrong with adding a little melodrama to make a movie more palatable to the movie goers that know very little about the war. The reviewer would have one believe that the movie was a bust with regard to its historical accuracy when really what he didn't like was that it pulled at heartstrings which didn't sit well with him. My father was a Tuskegee Airman and I'm quite sure that if he were alive today, he wouldn't have had nearly as much of a problem with the way his comrades were depicted as the reviewer did. Totally lame review, or rather, reviewer.
