I would mention here the new, amazing docu-serie "Rohwedder", that you can watch on Netflix. As the name suggests, the 4-episodes based documentation explains deeply the murder of Detlev K. Rohwedder, ex Treuhand chief murdered under mysterious circumstances in 1990. The documentation offers a lot of interesting witness from reporters, politicians and other personalities who took part to the case, everything enriched with beautiful video segments from the time and magistral editing.

One has to like these old public safety videos.  I have seen some on things as mundane as "the many poisons in your home" to the seemingly bizarre "what a child should do in the case they find blasting caps just lying around."  They are almost always funny though - especially because there never fails to be a child that insists on doing everything wrong.

The documentary filmmaker/record collector Alan Zweig has just now released a sequel of sorts to his 2000 cult classic Vinyl that's aptly called Records. I've just begun watching it now after reading an article and seeing the trailer - early impressions are that I'll expect lots of curated collections (and collectors) that are friendly on the eyes and Instagram, rather than neurotic misfits that shunned CDs in the 1990s and know the tracklists of every Ronco compilation. The link above might be geo-location locked to Canada only so ask me for a download link if you want to watch it - hopefully an official version will get added to YouTube soon though.

Thanks for the link, will check it out in the near future. Vinyl was a bit pitiful if I remember.

Caught an interesting (I use the word lightly) bit of trivia during the end credits of Videodrome which screened here in 35mm this evening: Alan Zweig is credited as one of the crew drivers.

Lost Boys (2020)

Decade later sequel to Reindeerspotting, which detailed the lives of a couple Finnish junkies. In this one we follow them to Cambodia, where they mostly smoke meth with bargirls, one eventually ending up dead. Shot POV on various consumer grade cameras with noir detective-style narration as the filmmaker hunts for clues on their whereabouts. Been meaning to watch this for awhile after having enjoyed Reindeerspotting but think I prefer the grit of that film, this is more arty and feels more staged. Setting and bad vibes kinda reminded of D'agata's work or a cut-rate Noé.
