The Sleez Sisters b/w The Fabulous Stains

I love movies about spunky teens running from the law and becoming folk heroes, like The Legend of Billie Jean or Times Square. The "running from the law" part is negotiable; I like stuff like Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains as well. Spunky teens are a must though! [more inside]

This thread is the BIGGEST PICKLE I've ever been in.

I love cult movies about dumb teenage boys having adventures, possibly in the 1950s/1960s and possibly in a 1980s/1990s production. Like Stand by Me, The Sandlot, and The Outsiders, or Lost Boys and Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. What other movies would I love? [more inside]

Reviews for Under the Radar Indie Movie Gems

Where do you go to find out about really cool indie films? Just saw a trailer for the movie A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night and thought it looked amazing (to give you an idea of the kind of movies I'm looking for). I'd like to find a blog or website with reviews for indie movies like this one that don't necessarily make it out to theaters or get reviewed in major publications. [more inside]

Maximum artsy, maximum fartsy

I want to start hosting a biweekly "Artsy Fartsy Movie Night." The idea is to show an extremely high-brow movie followed by an extremely low-brow one. It would be nice if the two movies could be thematically linked, or linked by title. [more inside]

Aging in literature and film

As I approach my fifties and confront the reality that parts of my body are wearing out and will never be young and resilient again, I turn to the arts for deeper philosophical understanding of this aspect of the human condition that I am facing. I'd like recommendations of fictional treatments of physical aging which are realistic but compassionate. Guidelines and caveats behind the fold. [more inside]

Good mystery movies to watch?

I'd like to get some good mystery movie recommendations from the 80s on. It's OK if they veer toward the thriller, like Michael Clayton, ridiculous like Ford Fairlaine, noirish like Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, or are a more standard outing with a strong, interesting, well developed detective lead like Zero Effect. Drawing room mysteries totally A-OK too. Super bonus points if I can stream them now on Hulu plus or Netflix.

Seeking the best stories, across all genres, about coming to terms with the world in the early adult years.

What are the best stories that feature young adults coming of age/coming to terms with life's imperfect realities? By "young adults" I mean "adults who are young," probably roughly 19-30, not "young people who are becoming adults." This maturing process can be central to the work or peripheral. One example: "The Great Gatsby." Short stories, novels, nonfiction, film, television and any other genre are all welcome.

what is your favorite camera for format photos

I've suddenly decided that I am on the verge of diving headfirst into the murky waters of medium format photography. Any of you have any favourite cameras? Favourite brands? Favourite filmstocks? Rest assured, I will not be shooting weddings or yearbook portraits.
