Be Kind Rewind

Jerry (Jack Black) is a junkyard worker who attempts to sabotage a power plant he suspects of causing his headaches. But he inadvertently causes his brain to become magnetized, leading to the unintentional wiping of all the movies in his best friend Mike's (Mos Def) video store. 

Mike has been left in charge of the store, after its long serving owner (Danny Glover) goes on a break. Now with no tapes, the store's customers are furious. In order to keep customers, the pair re-create a long line of films including The Lion King, Rush Hour 2, Ghostbusters, When We Were Kings, Driving Miss Daisy, Robocop and 2001: A Space Odyssey. Starring themselves, they become the biggest stars in their neighborhood.

Magic!

Another gem from Michel Gondry, and what a cast! I bought the DVD and as usual with Gondry there are some pretty good extras in it. We discover Mos Def as a pretty decent jazz singer in Paris with Gondry at the drums for instance. About the movie? Gondry is a craftman working his magic, anyone willing to become a movie maker should watch this. It is simple,...

Genius, again.

I see this film has a short season. what a travesty. No one else can nail the homemade craftsy aesthetic like gondry. his films are quaint yet clever and so funny. It's so nice so see a film maker that doesn't seem like he needs to show off. 'be kind rewind' is by no means an academic film, it's charming. A reminder of all that is great about the films we...
