Boogie Nights

Music from the Original Motion Picture

Capitol

The film, ostensibly about the late ’70s porno industry, has yet to make its way to my conservative little town, but at least the disc has got me heating up my love oils. Featuring music from the era – disco, soul, odd ends – it works well to set the mood. It’s also nice to see a few tracks united for convenient one-stop purchase: “Spill The Wine” by War and Eric Burdon, “Jungle Fever” by Chakachas, and Melanie’s “Brand New Key.” The only annoying thing here is Night Ranger’s “Sister Christian.” I guess even the best skin flicks need to have their portion of uninspired dialog.

Lily and Generoso review Hold Me Tight, the sixth feature directed by renowned actor Mathieu Amalric. Centered around a brilliant performance from Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread, Bergman Island), Hold Me Tight is an unpredictable and remarkable psychological drama.

Sirens

Screen Reviews

The fact that the band Slaves to Sirens exists is impressive, but that they live, love, and breathe to play metal takes things to another level. Sirens documents the journey. Review by Charles DJ Deppner.
