The Black Dog Video Newsletter: Plague Year Edition!
One year ago we shuttered up the windows and locked the doors at the Commercial shop (Cambie had closed a few days earlier) due to the plague that was sweeping the nation (and the earth planet). We were closed for 2 months (but doing the occasional curb-side pickup). It seems like forever ago. So much (and at the same time, not all that much) has happened in the past year. Been weird. But weird is the new normal now. Right?
It's been a bumpy ride but we're still here (Cambie Black Dog Video didn’t make it - like so many other business, marriages etc.- but found new life as Video Cat). I hope that everyone is doing the best that they can and maybe a return to normal life is on the horizon. Whatever that may be. The future is (hopefully) bright! Better grab some shades.
Breaking News in Yuba County – Allison Janney’s husband dies but folks thinks he’s gone missing thus propelling her into some sort of celebrity position. Hilarity, I presume, ensues. WATCH THE TRAILER:
Days of the Bagnold Summer – Sweet, charming British affair sees a heavy metal dude spending the summer trying to get along with his librarian mom. Librarians are so tough. WATCH THE TRAILER:
Goldstone – Well-received mystery thriller about an indigenous detective (Australia) arriving in a small town to aid in a missing person case. But there’s more than meets the eye, as the Aussie’s like to say. I believe that this operates in the Mystery Road universe. WATCH THE TRAILER:
Sami Blood – Excellent Swedish drama about a reindeer-breeding Sami girl who goes off to a horrible boarding school. Teacher! Leave those kids alone! WATCH THE TRAILER:
Soul – Latest swell Pixar dealie finds a New York jazz fella caught in a weird world between earth and the afterlife. Hear it's pretty great.
WATCH THE TRAILER:
The Undoing – Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant are wealthy New Yorkers who get mixed up in a murder case (murder most foul!) in this fine HBO mini-series. WATCH THE TRAILER:
Walking on Water – Cool-looking doc about famous large-scale installation guy, Christo. WATCH THE TRAILER:
