A notable Ann Arborite gives five answers to a
ProductionSeniorLecturer, Departmentof ScreenArts &Cultures
What are your favorite
1. "San Soleil" (1984), Chris Marker: The ultimate reflexive film about time, seeing, memory,
meaning and history. It is the "The Waste Land" as a motion picture.
2. "Nude on the Moon" (c. 1970), Doris Wishman: This might better fit the category of "Under-
ground Film." Wishman sets this outrageously artless science fiction film in a California nudist colo-
ny. Naked humanoids with aluminum foil antennae find thermselves on the moon.
3. "Mothlight" (1963), Stan Brakhage: Sublime - what can I say? A masterpiece made without
a film camera.
4. "Alpsee" (1994), Matthias Muller: A richly photographed psycho-drama without words (my
favorite kind of film). Move over Hitchcock and Sirk.
5. "But You Knew That Already" (2007), Sean Stewart: A brilliant film produced by one of our
own students who graduated a few years back. Enigmatic suburban angst in a coming-of-age drama.
It is one of the funniest films I have seen. There are almost no words.
URINALS: THE GAME
In this game, you are endowed with
the "prestige and responsibility" of
being the dude who traffics portly men
in and out of urinals and toilets. We're
not entirely sure of the need of this pro-
fession, but it works well in the game, in
which you draga line to match the men
with the toilets they desire. The game is
free this week, so get it now.

energy orbs. With simple controls and
a decent variety of weapons, "Spark"

"I got machine guns? In my butt?" These are the last
words of the latest "Astro Boy" trailer, and the lines
manage to stand out from other more groan-worthy
gags. In the film, the big, bad military schemes to use
Astro Boy as an instrument of war. Heavy on curves
and light on textures, the film's graphic style is closer to
"The Incredibles" than the ancient anime on which the
film is based. Hopefully this adaptation will fare better
than the rainbow-vomit train wreck of last year's "Speed
