Aretha Franklin's Amazing Grace

You'll be forgiven for not having heard of the film "Amazing Grace." After all, it was shot 47 years ago and until recently never available due to a combination of technical difficulties and legal issues. However, it is now available and showing in theaters and definitely worth seeing.  The film was originally shot in 16mm by Sydney Pollack at the behest of Warner Brothers. The occasion was to be a live recording of the Queen of Soul's return to her gospel roots at the New Temple Missio...

This Week In Trailers: Pavarotti, Bliss, Woodstock: Three Days that Defined a Generation, Grass Is Greener, Harvest Season

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we spark it up for 4/20, get into a slight tussle, luxuriate in the mud for three days, examine one of music’s greatest artists, and...

Cannabis Is The Next Big Thing In Scented Candles — Here's Where You Can Get Them

Back in the day — as in, before marijuana was legal in many states, and we had to clandestinely exhale smoke out of our dorm room windows via paper towel holders — weed was a smell we were always looking for ways to cover up. Scented candles, sprays, incense, air freshener, you name it, we used it. (Hindsight being 20/20, I think we can all agree these didn't work very well. Your mom/RA/server at Denny's totally knew.)But these days, cannabis and its chill cousin CBD are so mainstream that not ...

Coachella 2019: How the festival survived and thrived to reach its 20th year

As the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival marks its 20th anniversary this weekend, it’s easy to forget what a rare and unexpected surprise the very first fest was in 1999. First of all, most of you weren’t there – only 20,000 or so fans “filled” the Empire Polo Field to hear artists such as the Chemical Brothers and Beck, Rage Against the Machine and Tool. Second, those few who were there had never seen anything like it. Crisp green grass instead of asphalt or dirt. Reasonable prices at the ...

Aretha Franklin Doc ‘Amazing Grace’ Has Gala Premiere at Church Where It Was Filmed

Not many, if any, of the great music documentaries or concert films have ever screened in the exact location where they were shot: “Woodstock” did not show at Woodstock, and “Wattstax” did not premiere at the L.A. Coliseum, needless to say. But Sunday night, “Amazing Grace” had its official southern California premiere right where the […]

Canyon Montclair opens Friday, April 5 with Vince Neil

The wood in the green room at the Canyon Montclair is scraped and worn, and there’s a reason. “These doors came from the House of Blues,” said Lance Sterling. Sterling is an entrepreneur who helped build the House of Blues chain of nightclubs and now has his own burgeoning empire of concert venues. It will grow by one in April, when the Canyon Montclair opens its doors to the public. The opening night headliner will be Vince Neil, front man of Mötley Crüe. The green room doors traveled to the In...

The Most Amazing Thing About Photography Circa 2019

Bob Gary was right in saying that the "Complexification" post the other day "hit a nerve." I think so too. The best thing I got out of the discussion was the "aside" in the Featured Comment by Dennis, who wrote: I know plenty of people who have turned away from entry level cameras (ILC or fixed lens) in favor of their phones, but I think that's due to the ease of sharing photos taken with a phone. As an aside, I truly believe that many people do not think that their phone is a 'good enough' cam...

Whither the Who? That’s a big question for anyone perusing the Woodstock 50 lineup and noticing that the biggest act from the original 1969 lineup that is still around and active is not on the bill.
