Documentary of the week = We Jam Econo: The Story of the Minutemen
The Minutemen are one of those ‘if you know, you know’ kind of bands. And we didn’t know…well, not really anyway. And now we do. Because of this documentary. And if you watch it then you will know too. And that’s a worthwhile exercise. So do it yeah?
Film of the week = Joint Security Area (Dir. Park Chan-wook, 2000)
One of the early films by Korean legend Park Chan-wook (released just before he began his Vengeance Trilogy), Joint Security Area follows an investigation into a fatal shooting in the demilitarised zone between North and South Korea. It’s told from the different perspectives of those involved and over time the truth (and some interesting friendships) begin to emerge.
