Take a gander at some ballet propaganda. It’s The Red Detachment of Women, released in 1970 at the hight of the cultural revolution. It’s a movie based on a ballet based on a movie. Pointe shoes and rifles!

Where has this track been all my life?

Here’s some recent disco/house mixes I’ve enjoyed:

I recently watched The Unsuspected on TCM Plays and wow, Audrey Totter! She’s an inspiration! It’s a good flick that I’d never heard of before. It was on Noir Alley (I’d put it in the gothic category myself) and Eddie Mueller did one of his awesome intros for it:

Wanna watch a beautiful Italian actress have sex with a mentally-challenged stable boy, only for her compatriot to murder him at the moment of climax? It’s the deliciously unhinged Lady Frankenstein (1971).

Soundtrack to help you fully enjoy a depressive episode:

And some mixes I’ve enjoyed since last time:

And a bonus movie this week, Temptation (1946). This is worth the watch for the character Merle Oberon plays and the riveting setup. The payoff at the end leaves a lot to be desired, but it’s fun to rewrite it in your head so that she gets away with murder…

She feels handmade—it’s a post-apocalyptic adventure movie where they sell Trix cereal at open air markets and the warriors wear football helmets. Vaguely reminiscent of the barbecue-dad cult in the (better) Cherry 2000. Soundtrack is high-gloss fantasy-metal. Check it out:

Here are some mixes that I liked since last time:

Here’s another movie, Souls for Sale, written and directed by Howard Hughes’ uncle Rupert Hughes. Karina Longworth brought me here. Best to watch on mute—as with all silent movies, the music they put over it is grating (yes I know silent movies played with music).

Okay, I’m not sure why I rewatched this but it actually holds up really well in my opinion. I used to like this shit a lot when I was a kid. Pippi’s whole vibe and outlook on life is an inspiration—she models all the good parts of being an adult without the baggage that comes with actual adulthood. Hope and a hey and a hope sha na.

This guy is the mack:

Here are all the soundcloud mixes I liked since last time:

Heard about this one on Pure Cinema Podcast. It’s really great, I’m not sure why it isn’t a classic with a bunch of sequels? It’s The Visitor (1979)

I love how the water looks in this. What a delightful little animation:

Here are some disco, house, and techno mixes that I’ve enjoyed since the last update:

Satyricon is my favorite Fellini (maybe after Roma) so this behind-the-scenes doc was a treat for me. I don’t know if I’d be a good director because I really liked the lady’s dancing that made Fellini angry… He thought it was bad? She did do it way better after he was such a dick about it haha. It’s Ciao Frederico!

To me, this mix is a perfect encapsulation of what 1995 felt like.

Here are some newer mixes that I’ve enjoyed this month:

I like this article by Travis Mushett about trying to read the future in German movies from just before Hitler’s rise to power. It doesn’t bode well for our superhero-obsessed times…
