Cane Toads: An Unnatural History
The cane toad was imported from Hawaii in 1935 to save Queensland's sugar crop from the grey-back beetle. It failed because the beetle could fly and the cane toad couldn't. But the cane toad stayed to become a pest of plague proportions and part of local culture and popular mythology. This offbeat and entertaining documentary presents not just the biological information, but also the surprising range of people's attitudes to these grotesque creatures, including keeping them as pets.

The plot of Wild Style is a minor thing, what really makes this film so important is capturing the new phenomenon, that is hip-hop culture, at early stage of its development. The influence of this production on people involved with the movement is very difficult to overestimate, especially back in the days.

(br) wrote: It feels almost like a disservice to classify "I Walked With A Zombie' as merely, a horror film. From it's tragic story to the mysterious tone of the whole thing, this film really transcends the genre. It has horror elements for sure, but it's not a particularly scary film in the traditional sense, but rather creepy. It presents a very complex picture of human relationships, and how perception can influence such things. The film's atmosphere is really amazing, and as expected the Val Lewton/Jacques Tourneur collaboration, which delivers in some beautiful black and white cinematography that elicits danger and uncertainty. At it's heart it's a tragedy of how personal brooding and contorted emotion can destroy the the individual and I really enjoyed the complexity of the narrative, frequently giving the viewer multiple explanations for events portrayed in the film, with no definitive answers.
