REFLECTIONS OF EVIL (2002)
Wednesday, February 12. 9:30pm.
Reflections of Evil is like seeing an astral projection of someone’s mental breakdown through the prism of low-budget horror aesthetics. Produced and self-distributed by filmmaker Damon Packard thanks to an unexpected inheritance, this is a highly personal psychedelic collage that utilizes 16mm film, video, and found footage to tell the story of a wandering creature named Bobby (Packard) as he searches for his missing sister...who may have fallen in with a supernatural drug cult. Packard’s schizoid style is built on visual manipulations, breakneck editing, renegade plagiarism, mismatched audio effects, and the juxtaposition of tones. This is true genre anarchy: a rage-filled, 137-minute outsider manifesto that toes the line between artsy triumph and genre pastiche. Imagine a stream-of-consciousness collaboration between Sam Raimi and Charles Manson and you’re halfway there. After being caught while filming Reflections of Evil inside Universal Studios, Packard was banned for life from the theme park. He made the right choice.

Top 5 Hip-Hop LP/vinyl Arrivals @ Amoeba 01:31:2020

#1 Slum Village & Abstract Orchestra  Fantastic 2020 Vol. 1 LP  (Neastra/Fat Beats)
#2 Slum Village & Abstract Orchestra Fantastic 2020 Vol. 2 LP  (Neastra/Fat Beats)


Slum Village & Abstract Orchestra's  Fantastic 2020 Vol. 1 LP  and Fantastic 2020 Vol. 2 LP  via Neastra/Fat Beats is the new two volume vinyl set (also on CD)  collaboration of Slum Village and Abstract Orchestra's reworking of the Jay Dee (aka J Dilla) produced second Slum Village album;  the hip-hop classic from 2000 Fantastic Vol 2 when the Detroit group's line-up was T3, Baatin and J Dilla.  This 20th anniversary celebratory release is described in part by Fat Beats as British big band Abstract Orchestra applying, "Their own jazzy spin to Dilla's classic productions, with occasional assistance from
the surviving members of Slum Village themselves. The end result is Fantastic 2020, a hybrid blend of smooth, funky brass rhythms with boom-bap sensibilities that is just the kind of tribute that an often unsung, but highly influential group like Slum Village deserves, and is a more than welcome addition to any Dilla completist's library."
