What? You’ve watched every episode of Metalocalypse and find yourself with nothing left to fill the sick, black void in your soul? Get thee to the source, man. Scott Adams recommends this Viking-fueled history of Black Metal.

A.M. G.O.D. (Century Media). Review by Matthew Moyer.
If a band takes its name from a Robert E. Howard tale, they’d better have some epic lyrical battlescapes to back it up. Symphonic metal masters Bal-Sagoth deliver on the promise of their name. David Lee Beowulf talks with swordsman – er, frontman Byron about Howard, weaponry, and metal!
World Ov Worms (Candlelight). Review by Mitchell Foy.
You’re black metal’s favorite troll, at the head of Norway’s most popular metal act, the legendary Emperor. What happens when you leave the band to make ambient, keyboard-driven instrumental records? Nathan T. Birk delves into the crypt of Mortiis.

Director Laura Citarella, of the famed filmmaking collective El Pampero Cine, has created with her newest feature Trenque Lauquen a provocative transformation of her protagonist Laura (Laura Parades), whom Citarella first introduced in her 2011 film Ostende. Lily and Generoso enjoyed an in-depth conversation with Citarella about Trenque Lauquen when it screened at AFI Fest 2022.
Back in 2018, Lily and Generoso selected Adirley Queirós’s Once There Was Brasilia as a top ten film. That feature’s cinematographer, Joana Pimenta, has now co-directed with Queirós one of the most expansive political films we’ve seen this year, Dry Ground Burning. Lily and Generoso interviewed Pimenta at AFI Fest earlier this month.
