Sounds kind of interesting:

Yo La Tengo, the Hoboken indie-rock band with a flair for crisp, three-minute pop songs as well as broad feedback experiments, perform live scores to "How Some Jellyfishes Are Born," "Shrimp Stories," "The Love Life of the Octopus," and other short films by Jean Painlevé. (Alice Tully Hall. 875-5050. April 6)
Do you film buffs know Painleve?

Review by a Yo La Tengo fan.

Tom's astute equation of The Boards Of Canada and afterschool specials in his techno diary reminded me that I've been meaning to post a couple of links on this page.
On a hunch I bought on ebay a 16mm print of OWL AND LEMMING by the Dutch animator Co Hoedeman. The film is an adaptation of an Eskimo legend, one of a series he did in collaboration with Inuit artists and musicians.
The film blows my socks off.
16mm prints and videos of the complete series are available through The Film Board Of Canada.

Check out my sketches based on the movie Blade 2 here. Caution: not for the squeamish. Also, a capsule review.

AI Nailed

Justine Elias, in the Village Voice's 2001 Films in Review:

This is the image in A.I. that to me sums up the team of Spielberg and Kubrick: The fugitive mechas escape to Smut Island or whatever it's called, which looks like the Food Court at a 1970s shopping mall, and Gigolo Joe, the Kubrick figure, is happily pointing out the sights—"Here's where I ply my sleazily robotic trade!"—which would be totally perverted if the sex talk weren't sailing right over the head of little RoboBoy, Steven, who's going, "My mommy told me to look for the Blue Fairy! I love my mommy!"
