Serj Tankian – Elect the Dead Symphony

London, England: University of London, June 2, 2010

Buy a copy.

On March 16th, 2009, Serj Tankian, a Grammy Award winner and one of rock’s most unconventional frontmen, took the stage at the majestic Auckland Town Hall in New Zealand with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra to perform a very special orchestral interpretation of his critically acclaimed debut solo album Elect the Dead. The dynamic one-off performance was recorded and filmed in HD by six cameras, and the dramatic result has been captured in Elect the Dead Symphony.

With the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra at his side, Tankian’s epic songs and operatic vocals take on a whole new sense of grandeur when performed by a full 70-piece orchestra, while the movie’s sweeping edits showcase the drama of the concert. This unique meshing of two very different musical worlds was a vision Tankian has long wanted to make a reality. What sets Elect The Dead Symphony apart from other successful pairings between rock artists and orchestras is that Tankian specifically rearranged his songs to be performed with only orchestral instruments.

Language : English
Runtime : 104 min
Genre: Fantasy, Action, Animation, Comedy, Family.
Synopsis :

Batman is Gotham’s saint, solitary, and that is the way he prefers it. However, when Barbara Gordon (Rosario Dawson) succeeds her dad as magistrate, she recommends Batman’s history of continually thwarting the scoundrels’ detestable plots, yet for the most part giving them a chance to escape to plot once more, maybe isn’t the perfect situation and proposes a nearer working relationship. It probably won’t make any difference, no sooner has she taken office than the Joker (Zach Galifianakis), annoyed by Batman’s refusal to recognize him as his principle enemy (“I’m battling a couple of various individuals. I get a kick out of the chance to battle around”) gets together his criminal comrades and surrenders. In any case, to Gordon, not Batman. Insulted by this, Batman chooses to denounce any and all authority – breaking into Arkham Asylum to oust the Joker to the Phantom Zone.

It’s a film thick with jokes, the essayists riffing effectively on both this morose and haughty emphasis of Batman and the character’s rich and differed history. The movies are referenced (“That time with the parade and the Prince music”), similar to the TV arrangement and funnies. And every one of the sources are dug for the film’s full rebels’ display – Polka-Dot Man, Gentleman Ghost and the Condiment King among the lowlifess showing up in cameo parts.

And after that, for the last fight, more are unleashed. A standard dissension about superhero movies is there are an excessive number of terrible folks (Spider-Man 3 overstretched by adding Venom to Sandman and the New Goblin), yet here Gremlins, Daleks, The Matrixs Agent Smith, Dracula, Godzilla, Sauron, Lord Voldemort and more are altogether unleashed with no issue. Just once in a while more will be more, thus it demonstrates here.

Yet, for all the fan benefit and unpretentious jokes, this is still apparently a film for children to be taken to (and it’s been two decades since we had a Batman film that way) and, all things considered, there is a lesson for Batman (and the children) to learn. To be specific, collaboration is great, companions are imperative, don’t spend your evenings sitting alone eating warmed lobster thermidor.

This shows itself in affirmed recluse Bruce Wayne missing mindedly receiving vagrant Dick Grayson (Michael Cera) who finds the Batcave and needs to end up distinctly his sidekick. What’s more, later, regrettably, the Bat-group becomes facilitate. Just on the off chance that they cooperate will they vanquish the Joker’s developing armed force. This point becomes toiled as Bats ceaselessly declines to acknowledge it, yet there’s such a great amount of going on, it’s anything but difficult to excuse.

This is the third time Batman has included in a noteworthy realistic discharge in the previous 11 months. Also, on the off chance that anything, with the arrival of The Lego Batman Movie, those movies have turned around the overarching shrewdness: dull and ill humored is awful, comedic and senseless is great. Regardless of whether we merit it is unimportant – this is the Batman motion picture we required right at this point. Furthermore, it conveys.

“…makes Fahrenheit 9/11 seem tepid and weak…a brutal and brilliant bit of filmmaking.”
– Jim Knipfel, New York Press

“Indelible portraits of power’s absolute corruption…an astonishing diatribe…heaves with disturbing scenes of violence against innocent Belarussians…a primal howl of outrage.”
– Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times

“scuffed-knuckle…open a window on an atrocious reality American media channels don’t bother to report…sharp, instructive, and mad as hell cheap cialis online.”

With fury and agony, Long Knives Night and Reporting from a Rabbit Hutch confront Europe’s last dictator: Alexander Lukashenko of Belarus.  Writer / director Victor Dashuk has risked imprisonment and abuse – common for dissidents, as you see in the films – to depict and attack Lukashenko’s rise to authority.

Long Knives Night chronicles the 1996 anti-constitutional coup in Belarus.  Lukashenko’s actions are both symbolic and explicitly political: he reverts to Soviet-style state symbolism, blocks voting, and sics riot police on protesters to beat them bloody.  With breathtaking access, Dashuk also reveals footage of the actual elected legislators locked out of their offices by the President’s own guards.

The New York Times describes Reporting from a Rabbit Hutch as “less philosophical and more turbulent…explores the realities of life in Belarus and the fates of those who dare oppose the president. Driven by the voices of Belarussian citizens…the film heaves with disturbing scenes of violence against innocent Belarussians.”

Though widely recognized as one of the most dangerous men in the world, Lukashenko has rarely before been depicted on film.  When finally revealed in New York City in 2006, they caused a sensation.  Now, at last, these harrowing and absolutely essential films are ready for all.

“Long Knives Night.”  Documentary, 56 minutes, 1999.  Written and directed by Victor Dashuk.  “Reporting from a Rabbit Hutch.” Documentary, 40 minutes, 2001.  Written and directed by Victor Dashuk.


As seen on PBS’ Independent Lens

The first film in Daniel Kraus’ WORK Series, a set of independent documentaries designed to create an on-going record of the American worker.

“This insightful program offers an intriguing peek at small-town law enforcement.”
– Booklist

“without taking anything away from [Frederick] Wiseman, who remains a master, Sheriff is almost as good any documentary he’s made.”
– Noel Murray, The Onion

Sheriff Ronald E. Hewett oversees the rural Southern community of Brunswick County, North Carolina. Heading up what used to be a backwards, back-woods department, Hewett strives to maintain order and civility in a region fraught with murder, robbery, and the occasional theft of ceramic lawn ornaments. To accomplish this impossible task, Hewett uses the only tools at his disposal — God, guns, and the hundreds of blood relatives that populate his jurisdiction.

At once brutal, bizarre and funny, Sheriff employs the techniques of Frederick Wiseman’s pure cinéma vérité: no interviews, no music, no voice-overs. The result is an unexpected, intimate portrait of a complex man trying to do good in a bad, bad world.

Sheriff is an intimate portrait of an admirable blue-collar man and the first in the WORK Series, a set of independent documentaries from director Daniel Kraus designed to create an on-going record of the American worker.

Bjork’s Voltaic: The Volta Tour Live in Paris and Reykjavik

“Björk delivers a performance as visually spectacular as it is musically innovative.  Fifteen years into her solo career, Björk remains the least compromising and most fantastical pop superstar talent.”
– The Guardian

“No other songwriter can sound so naïve and so instinctual while building such elaborate structures. And few musicians have managed to sustain her unlikely combination of avant-gardism and pop visibility.”
– Jon Pareles, The New York Times

Watch Now

Voltaic: The Volta tour Live in Paris and Reykjavik is a remarkable, multi-media document of Björk’s visually dazzling Volta tour.  Full of on-your-feet moments, the film features highlights recorded in Paris and Reykjavik, with performances of songs from Volta as well as earlier tracks including Hunter, Joga, Army of Me, and Hyperballad.

Christmas on Mars: A Fantastical Film Freakout Featuring the Flaming Lips

Watch Now

“Endearingly ragged…destined for cult status…abetted with homemade-looking but sometimes lyrical effects.”
– Andy Webster, New York Times

Christmas on Mars is great, if only you could understand it…a psychedelic accomplishment that will inevitably gain more favor as it ages…Twilight Zone poetry.”
– Metro Boston

“a moody, somewhat demented trip, albeit one with amateur actors and giant genitalia in astronaut suits.”
– Todd Martens, Los Angeles Times

“It’s basically as weird as you’d hoped.”
– Isaac Butler, New York Magazine

“this mostly black-and-white, dreamlike yuletide fable does possess its own dorky DIY charm, as space-suited men wander around narrow enclosures in various stages of dissociation, Santas commit airlock suicide, and a nurse/mother in a giant lightbulb births a bubble baby.”
– Variety

Legendary rock band the Flaming Lips present Christmas on Mars: A Fantastical Film Freakout Featuring the Flaming Lips, a glorious science fiction film that marks the directorial debut of the Lips’ visionary frontman Wayne Coyne.  Seven years in the making, Christmas on Mars features original music by the Flaming Lips (“The greatest U.S. band today” – The Guardian), with acting performances by all band members, and many others from their Oklahoma City-based team.  Comedian Fred Armisen (Saturday Night Live) and actor Adam Goldberg (Dazed and Confused, Two Days in Paris) also appear, as does performer Steve Burns of the band Steve Burns and the Struggle (who had also appeared in children’s television show Blue’s Clues).  Bradley Beesley and George Salisbury co-directed the movie with Mr. Coyne.

It’s Christmastime, and the colonization of Mars is underway.  However, when an oxygen generator and a gravity control pod malfunction, Major Syrtis (the Lips’ Steven Drozd) and his team (including the Lips’ Michael Ivins) fear the worst.  Syrtis also hallucinates about the birth of a baby, and many other strange things.  Meanwhile, a compassionate alien superbeing (Coyne) arrives, inspiring and helping the isolated astronauts.
