“La Haine” AKA “Hate” the film…

La Haine Trailer from Nicolas Heller on Vimeo.

I first saw this as a film major at Emerson College about 9 years ago.  Shortly thereafter I quit film school when I realized that 98% of “films” are nowhere near as amazing as this one.  If you can’t handle subtitles, (the whole film is in French) then you should stop being a fucking pussy, learn how to read, and watch this incredible film.

Love the black and white and the three main characters and acting are amazing.  The social, racial and economic issues are always at the fore front here as the French projects get crazy after a Muslim youth is beaten into a coma by reckless cops.  Referred to as the French “Boys in The Hood”, La Haine really gives you a great insight into French B-boy and street culture and makes you realize its really no different then our own.  The racial unity is also a refreshing change of scenery.  The below scene is Cut Killer dropping some anti-cop dopeness on his hood, one of my favorite scenes.

Couldn’t find the trailer in English Subtitles but check it out on Netflix where it rocks a five star rating.  The ending gives me chills no matter how many times I see this…

Shadow Conspiracy Gummo tee shirt…

Inspired by the 1997 cult film Gummo, this Shadow Conspiracy “By the Cat” t-shirt pays homage to the two characters Solomon & Tummler who cruise around killing stray cats to sell to the local grocery store for use in Chinese restaurants. Weird ass movie about a small town in Ohio transformed into pure white trash after a devastating tornado. Same bizarre flick DMX is watching in one of the opening scenes of Belly.

Skateboarding Chimp…

 

I saw this on the news a few weeks ago and finally found it again while browsing some skate forums. Click the cartoon to check out a clip of little dude cruising a mini ramp. They need to introduce him to Tyson the skateboarding bulldog.

EDIT: New movie last one got yanked…
