Things to Watch

Two things you should look for at the video store/put on your netflix queue:

Michael Jackson's Dangerous . It is a collection of all of his music videos, but be sure to watch the amazing Leni Riefenstahl-like video in the beginning, the Michael Jackson concert footage montage. This video has very dramatic classical music and lots of slowed down footage of him dancing infront of frenzied crowds. The video makes him seem like a Jesus-Hitler-superstar. It's quite a treat. Also watch the extended version of Black or White. It is concrete proof that Michael Jackson is insane.

Peep Show. This BBC comedy only lasted six episodes, like all great comedy treasures (Arrested Development, Freaks and Geeks). Two odd couple-style roommates grow to hate each other more and more and their lives get worse and worse. The episodes were shot with cameras mounted to the actors heads for a lot of nice point-of-view scenes.
