A Certain Ratio - "Mind Made Up"


A Certain Ratio (aka ACR or A.C.R.) are a post-punk/funk band from Manchester, UK. Formed in the late 1970s, they were one of the bands (along with Gang Of Four and The Pop Group) who forged the new musical hybrid which became known as punk-funk, a style which fused the energy and aggression of punk rock with the rhythms and musicianship of funk and soul. The band’s members were originally Simon Topping, Jeremy Kerr, Martin Moscrop, Donald Johnson and Pete Terrell. In live performance, the band often had a flexible line-up, with various members swapping instruments, and also performing ensemble latin percussion music.

Chungking Express


One of the most influential directors of the last few decades, Won Kar-Wai has a signature style, a bristling neon aesthetic, that can be seen in films, adverts and music videos the globe. Chungking Express (1994) gave his trademark directorial style an international profile. Brigitte Lin, iconic in dark glasses and blonde wig, looks for the courier who stole her cash and stash and bumps into "Cop 233" who's just self-consiously decided to fall for the next woman he meets. Dazzling in its cool exuberance and colour-saturated gloss, this neon paean to lost love is Wong's most exquisitely hypnotic work to date.

Apontes




"Truants" by Nickos Grammatikos is not a typical 90's movie about old friends and habits. It is a very realistic and timely recording of the transition of a group of young people from age 25 to 30 and how professional and family success and failure lead to depression, arrogance or indifference. The corrosion of character and ideas resulting from the incorporation into the system as well as the isolation of hopeless romantics and those left behind is reflected perfectly in this Greek production of 96. A landmark movie that is highly recommended to greek post-graduates suffering from mid 20s crisis.
