art-house hit 'dawson city: frozen time' is back


bill morrison's virtually indescribable “dawson city: frozen time” was a surprise los angeles art house hit when it debuted here in june, doing so well that it’s been brought back for a return engagement.starting with the discovery of unknown films in canada’s unforgiving yukon territory, director morrison spins a wondrous tale. it’s crammed with wild tales, amazing facts and unconventional personalities, a documentary that's also a detective story, a history of a particular place that turns into an examination of an art form as well as a gloss on the political history of the 20th century.more than that, “dawson city” is such a visual knockout you feel you don't want to so much as blink out of fear you'll miss something exceptional on the screen. if you love film, if you're intoxicated by






oscar winner on how 'la la land's' cinematography so perfectly captured los ange


linus sandgren, who marked the first big win of the night for “la la land,” for cinematography, talked about the innate and unexpected charm of los angeles during a quick stop backstage with his statue. “i think it’s a really beautiful, interesting mix of the urban gritty city and the beauty of nature,” he said. “it’s an incredible mix. sometimes i drive home on santa monica boulevard in hollywood, and there are lots of telephone poles, but against this lovely sky and sunset. it’s remarkable.” his favorite scene in the film is emma stone’s dream-like audition. “it’s so simple — no colors, a bit dim, but it was quite complicated to do,” he said. “it can be more interesting to do simple scenes, and in this film, which is so bold all the time, that scene is so intimate.”

in june 2015, a few days before donald trump declared that he was running for president, the news cycle was dominated by a different person: rachel dolezal. she was the head of the spokane chapter of the naacp, an artist, a teacher of black-themed subjects – and, as it turned out, the daughter of white parents. she said she identified as black, and was living the life she felt was authentically her own. her critics, and there were many, believed she had been living a lie, letting people assume she was black, when years before she had filed a lawsuit as a howard university graduate student, alleging that the university had discriminated against her because she was a white woman.long divorced from her african american husband, dolezal is bringing up three black sons, the youngest a year old.

yes, ‘friends’ should have ended with rachel and joey together


the sitcom “friends” got many things right. probably. i haven’t watched it in quite a while. i do know it got some things wrong regarding relationships. for starters, monica and tom selleck should never have broken up, because he is tom selleck. but what if monica and chandler weren’t the only couple inexplicably mashed together? what if the show’s biggest arc, the relationship between ross and rachel, ended up exactly wrong? what if, instead, joey and rachel had ended up together?well, tweeter @kaneandgriffin makes that argument, and her points are not just compelling, they’re convincing. for starters, ross gellar is really a pretty terrible human being. not only does he argue against the plausibility of a real-life jurassic park, he’s also that one friend we all have: the guy who is alwa

what are oscars and other non-cash awards really worth?

the coming war on general-purpose computing / boing boing


lockdown the coming war on general-purpose computingby cory doctorow -share this articletweetthis article is based on a keynote speech to the chaos computer congress in berlin, dec. 2011. general-purpose computers are astounding. they're so astounding that our society still struggles to come to grips with them, what they're for, how to accommodate them, and how to cope with them. this brings us back to something you might be sick of reading about: copyright. but bear with me, because this is about something more important. the shape of the copyright wars clues us into an upcoming fight over the destiny of the general-purpose computer itself. in the beginning, we had packaged software and we had sneakernet. we had floppy disks in ziplock bags, in cardboard boxes, hung on pegs in shops, and
