  • The much anticipated second feature film, after the extraordinary After The Triumph of Your Birth, from writer and director Jim Akin is making its big screen premiere on the evening of May 8th at The American Cinematheque's Egyptian Theater. The Ocean of Helena Lee is one of the most brilliant and evocative American films in recent memory and anyone in the Hollywood area on May 8th should do everything in their power to attend The American Cinematheque's screening, which will be followed by a conversation with the film's cast and crew, moderated by Allison Anders and Josh Olson, and a special performance by one of the film's stars, the legendary Maria McKee. A few strong pieces have already been written on The Ocean of Helena Lee, including these by Sheila O'Malley and Dennis Cozzalio and the incredible soundtrack by McKee and Akin is available here. My own look at the film, along with two in depth interviews with Maria, can be read in the third issue of Art Decades, which is now available at Amazon. Even if you can't make the premiere, please follow this stunning piece of American Independent filmmaking at its official Facebook page, at Twitter and its official site. It's a poetic and powerful film and one of my favorites of the decade.

  • Hopefully everyone reading is familiar with Erich Kuersten and his amazing writing. If not, please stop reading and head over to Erich's essential blog Acidemic immediately and experience some of the best writing on film you'll ever read online or in print. Erich was one of the first writers I thought of more than a year ago when I first began planning ART DECADES and I am thrilled that he has appeared in both of our first issues (and his appearance in Issue 3 is on the horizon). Erich has been exploring the solo works of my favorite artist Lou Reed for ART DECADES. His look at Lou's work in the seventies was spread about between Issues 1 and 2 and Issue 3 will contain his look at Lou in the eighties. I've loved reading Erich's distinctive takes on my Lou's wildly influential solo career these past few issues and I trust fans of Lou and Erich are enjoying them as much as I am!
    Issue 2 can now be ordered at Amazon.

  • Among the finest pieces in ART DECADES issue 2 is Tara Hanks' wonderfully informative and moving article on the much-missed British Pop Artist Pauline Boty. Tara's near eight page article on Boty is a fascinating look at a true feminist pioneer and one of the great artists of the sixties. More information on Boty can be read here and please visit Tara's official site as well.
    Issue 2 can now be ordered at Amazon.
