Mulholland Falls - No, not the David Lynch movie. This is a retro-detective-noir loosely based on the LAPD's famous Hat Squad. They're investigating the murder of a young woman (Jennifer Connelly). Starring Nick Nolte, Chazz Palminteri, Michael Madsen, and Chris Penn as the detectives, with Melanie Griffith, Treat Williams, Daniel Baldwin, Andrew McCarthy, Kyle Chandler, Ed Lauter, Melinda Clarke, Titus Welliver, Bruce Dern, Louise Fletcher, Rob Lowe, William Petersen, and John Malkovich. With such a cast, it should have been better.

Actually I think the movie is pretty good as is.

Ministry - Sphinctour - Concert film of the industrial-metal band's 1996 world tour. I saw them in Lakeland, Florida during this tour, and it was so loud that the opening bass note was like getting kicked in the chest.

Killer **** - German horror comedy about a killer ****. No, really. This was recommended by SansFin.

 

Edit: I see part of the title is censored, so I removed the poster, too. The missing word is the commonly used term for the standard male contraceptive.
