Watching XTC “This Is Pop” doc - fantastic stuff. I’m a recent convert to this band and really loving this. Very much a typical “rockumentary” about a totally non-typical band. Fantastic.

Great watch, especially if you’re a fan. Had some very pointless contributions from one or two interviewees not in the band but is mostly packed full of interesting stuff. Really enjoy how it charts their progress from a scrappy, choppy guitar group to a huge, overblown pop music factory. Even today they’re just hugely under appreciated in terms of songwriting and the strength of all those albums. I think this was from quitting live shows in part but also because they are inescapably over the top in their execution. Love them.

Goodbye CP (1972)
https://vimeo.com/24199126

Kazuo Hara's essential DIY documentary portrait of adults with cerebral palsy in Japan. Hara later made The Emperor's Naked Army Marches On, which is arguably one of the best docs ever made (also available on youtube heh).

Goodbye CP (1972)

Will definitely check this out.

Orozco The Embalmer (2001)

In 1996, Tsurisaki Kiyotaka, one of Japan’s most infamous death photographers, ventured into the center of Hell itself- the Rue Morgue neighborhood of Bogota, Colombia. With death and murder rampant, the corpses eventually find their way to embalmer Froilan Orozco, who has been tending the dead for over 50 years. It only makes sense the two would become acquaintances. Over the next few years Kiyotaka filmed Orozco at work, embalming everyone from murder victims to the elderly. Orozco the Embalmer (Orozco el Embalsamador) is the result, a gut wrenching look at corpses and the man who prepares them.
