A great gallery of X-RATED – Adult movie posters of the 60s and 70s. Funny how tame they look in a post online world.
The favourite films of what has to be my favourite video site of ’09. Some good picks in there certainly worth your time.
We’re not in the habit of pimping past DN guest’s purchasables here on the site, but I’m happy to make an exception for something as pretty as this. Esther May Campbell has released the September DVD Film +CD of soundtrack + recipe book (yes recipe book!), all bundled in an elegant little package – a [...]
If someone was to ask me who my current favourite director was, despite some close opposition from Jim Jarmusch, Lars Von Trier and Park Chan-Wook, I would have to pick Michael Haneke.

A favourite of mine for sometime now, this venue is not only a classic old school cinema showing a fine mix of films, but is also a bargain (especially when [...]
Well Directors Notes has hit the 100th episode mark and still no telegram from the Queen, which is a bit weird, as I know she was one of our first subscribers. It seems like only yesterday, I was kicking back with my slippers and pipe listening to the first episode of DN, when MarBelle interviewed [...]
Doc It Out has posted an interesting piece about a subject that raises its head again and again in the ethics of documentary filmmaking; should subjects get paid for their participation?
