(10 Jun) Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties (2006, Tim Hill) 18
[ The title recalls Dickens, but the plot is actually borrowed from Mark Twain’s The Prince and the Pauper. The links with great works of literature end there though, unless you find repetitive jokes about what a fat and lazy bastard that orange cat is to be just brilliant. Sure, it’s amusing enough in three-panel comic strip doses, but it gets mighty tiresome when you have to sit through 75 minutes of this. Bill Murray tries his best to enliven things with his energetic and sarcastic vocal performance, but this endless series of talking-animal tomfoolery and those-darn-humans pratfalls will still bore anyone over 8. ]

(28 Jun) Thinking XXX (2004, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders) 69
[ “What’s the use of having a beautiful body and beautiful breasts or a beautiful cock if nobody sees it all?” Photograph Timothy Greenfield-Sanders had the idea of taking portraits pf porn stars, nude then in their everyday clothes, but in the same pose. The effect is quite startling, and this making-of documentary also adds interviews in which some of the subjects and various other people talk about the art of fucking on film. “OHMYGOD, I have Jenna Jameson’s juice on my FACE! I’m never gonna wash it again! Smell it!” ]
