ASIAN CINEMA TAKEOUT fanzine No. 1 out now!

My buddy David K and Jessie Midnitecrawlr have just published the first issue of a new review fanzine on Asian cinema entitled ASIAN CINEMA TAKEOUT! I'm on board as a writer and there's a bunch of other spiffy folks there as well. The zine is 20pp and it's scheduled to get released every two months.

Apart from a limited print edition exclusively for the fanzine's writers, the mag is going to be purely a gratis print-on-demand zine; In other words you print your own edition. For free. Either that or download and read it as a PDF file.

To download/print go here.

WASHING MACHINE aka Vortice Mortale (Ruggero Daodato, Italy-France-Hungary, 1993)

"It's a unique packaging, coupled with the fact that the film is not officially available anywhere else in the world..."
[Shameless lies, I mean Films]

Funny how I've just been able to watch this film on official DVD from Thailand. Released in 2003.

Here's a link to Jason Meredith's incisive review (funnily enough he also posted about the official Thai DVD that Shameless claims doesn't exist!).

PS: no, the film isn't blue. Apparently, my cheap-ass camera is only able the zoom in on one object and get its colours right!
