"A Love of Uiq": Félix Gutattari's Unfilmed Script

“There will soon be nothing more than self-communicating zombies, whose lone umbilical relay will be their own feedback image – electronic avatars of dead shadows perpetually retelling their own story.” —Jean Baudrillard in Telemorphosis Around 1979 the American filmmaker Robert Kramer and the French schizo-analyst Félix Guattari started working together on a film about two Italian fugitives from the Italian Autonomia Movement, Latitante. The film, which was to star Pier Paolo Pasolini's regular actress Laura Betti, was meant to be a sort of first person collective reflection on the finitude and fragility of the body, “opposing the enormous weight of things-as-they-are, systematically defined by vast power.” A film about the intimacy of resistance. Somewhere along the way the film morphed into a significantly different creature, the science fiction flick A Love of Uiq, a formal shift (sub)consciously informed by the wider political changes taking place off screen: from the grand

Travis – ‘Where You Stand’ Review

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

It has been a long time since Travis first reached the consciousness of the nation at large with huge single ‘Why Does It Always Rain On Me’ in the summer of 1999. They were, for a time, the biggest band in the country and trod the path that bands like Snow Patrol and Coldplay followed and Mumford & Sons continue to tread. After years of silence it seemed as if the band had drifted into the sunset but it turns out that instead they were taking their time to make a record that stands proudly when held against their previous efforts.

The band sound energised and refreshed after the five year gap between this and their last album, ‘Ode To J.Smith.’ The new single ‘Where You Stand’ sounds effortless and picks up where the band left off without missing a step. The first track, ‘Mother’ is more

Chris Martin: Olympics caused song mistake

Chris Martin messed up a performance because he couldn't stop thinking about the Olympics. The Coldplay frontman blundered the opening of 'Warning Sign' at a concert in Boston, Massachusetts at the weekend and admitted his error was a result of his excitement over the Games being held in London. He told the crowd: ''Oh s**t. I was thinking about the Olympics. ''I was distracted. I was not in the break-up frame of mind and I should have been. I'm going to get back into it.

Coldplay's Chris Martin forgets lyrics in live performance, blames Olympics

Chris Martin has jokingly blamed the Olympics after he forgot the lyrics to one of Coldplay's songs during a concert. The band were starting to perform 'Warning Sign' at a concert in Boston when Martin got mixed up. After getting lost, Martin joked: "Oh s**t" and played random keys on his piano, prompting extended cheers and applause from the crowd. "I was thinking about the Olympics," Martin admitted. "I was distracted. I was not in the breakup frame of mind and I should have been. I'm going to get back into it. I'm going to stop thinking about pole vault, things like that, and I'm going to focus back in on the song. So is everybody else." However, he continued: "It's a big deal, man. We've never had the Olympics in our lifetime so you can't blame a band for thinking about it every once in (more

Watch: Chris Martin Messes Up 'Warning Sign' & Blames The Olympics

Somehow, even when Chris Martin messes up, it only makes him more charming. During a Monday night show in Boston, the Coldplay frontman got a little too distracted -- thinking about the Olympics, no less -- during a performance of "Warning Sign."

Martin confessed that he was preoccupied with the 2012 London Olympics. "I'm going to stop thinking about the pole vault and stuff like that, and I'm going to get back into it," Martin told the crowd. "It's a big deal. You can't blame a guy for thinking about it every once in a while. ... But what's my thought is the best concert in the world is happening right here, right now."

But Martin wasn't done digging yet. "F--k the Olympics," he said. "Let's have a f--king great time in Boston." Of course, after giving it a bit more thought, the Coldplay frontman (sort of) retracted his statement. "Please don't tweet that I said,

“Ten things about virus outbreaks I learned from the movies” – by Kim Newman

  • Nerdly
Quarantine 2: Terminal, recently released on DVD by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, is the latest zombie film to inspire author and critic Kim Newman and is his motivation for compiling this hilarious Top 10. So take it away Mr Newman…

After my mammoth session with [Rec], [Rec]2, Quarantine and Quarantine 2: Terminal, I continued my survey of killer germ movies with both versions of The Crazies, … 28 days later and … 28 weeks later, the 1970s and 2000s series of Survivors, The Stand, The Cassandra Crossing, Outbreak, And the Band Played On, The Andromeda Strain, The Satan Bug, Carriers, Plague, Warning Sign, I Am Legend, and every single Sars, bird flu and pandemic TV movie ever made.

HD violence as The Exterminator Returns

Now this is some exciting news, tinged as it is with an air of nostalgia for me, as those fine folk at Synapse are set to release the ultra-violent classick The Exterminator. I remember watching this, along with Warning Sign, Poltergeist and many others, on the wonder that was Laserdisc. Believe me, it stuck in my mind. Who can forget the infamous meat grinder scene? Ah, good times. On September 11th Synapse will be releasing the remastered Director’s Cut in Hi-Def glory on Blu-ray and DVD combo pack. Excited yet? Of course you are!

Christopher George, Robert Ginty, and Samantha Eggar star in The Exterminator, James Glickenhaus’ explosive story of Vietnam vet John Eastland (Ginty), a man who launches a bloody vendetta against the New York underworld when his best friend is brutally beaten by a vicious street gang. Eastland becomes a vigilante hero to the public, but to

Lol: New York Subway Spoiler Warning

/Film's own David Chen has figured out a way to fix the New York Subway... Photo after the jump. Okay, so the above Spoiler Warning sign was not actually installed by Dave. It was created by Newmindspace and Jason Eppink (found via Laughing Squid). And no, the photo really isn't film related per say, but I thought it would be funny to post because of the film community's obsession with avoiding possible spoilers. Anyone who listens to the /Filmcast usually ends up inserting random spoiler warner references into their everyday conversations (I know I sometimes stop myself during phone conversations and blurt out things like "spoiler warning for Sixth Sense coming up...").

Coldplay gives 'Glee' their catalog: Is it the right fit?

Coldplay gives 'Glee' their catalog: Is it the right fit?
Eventually, they all give in. And damn it, you might be next, Bryan Adams.

After initially declining Glee permission to cover their songs, Coldplay is giving the Fox hit access to their catalog, according to reports. You might be happy… or sad. That’s kind of a dumb statement, but I’m leaving it because it reminds me of something Brittany would say. I’m happy, but my joy comes with one question: Is Coldplay the right fit for Glee? My gut says it could definitely work, but (and that’s a big but) it has to be done correctly:

Top 10: Outbreak Movies

With The Crazies (review here) remake bursting down our door, I thought it would be a good opportunity for Dread Central to look back at some of the most memorable virus/outbreak movies of the genre’s past. It’s a slippery slope when determining what constitutes a viral plague versus a standard zombie apocalypse, but I boiled my criteria down to one basic rule: The carnage must be driven by an infection, and re-animated corpses crawling out of the dirt need not apply.

Here goes nothing. And make sure to join me in the discussion below. Part of the reason I enjoy making these lists so much is to hear what other like-minded horror fans think. What did I miss? What shouldn’t have been included (I can hear some of those now)?

Sure, it’s a strange world where a Mick Garris film snags a spot on any top ten list,

From the Files of Fangoria: Beware the Warning Sign

  • Fangoria
It’s been a relaxing break, but now it’s time to get back to work and dive right back into the files. This week’s full review is a little biological terror from 1985 known as Warning Sign. A preachy little number about the dangers of biological warfare, this film pulls no punches when it comes to paranoia and its “don’t trust the government” message.

Taking place in Any Midwestern Town America, Warning Sign is the story of a chemical spill that occurs in the wackiest of ways. Think The Stand if the biological spill was caused by sticky tape and The Three Stooges. Even though the film can be admired as an early example of rage zombie-like behavior, preachy dialogue, melodramatic leads, and lousy extras make the film almost unwatchable. Even more disappointing, despite having such a “progressive” message, the female leads are extremely weak. Also, for some

Retro Slave: Hal Barwood's unsung plague flick Warning Sign

Some of you long time Qe readers may remember I used to write the odd "retro review" which were essentially looks back at older titles that, while old news now, still deserved mention here on these pages. Well, as stuff gets crazier around here and we continue to grow it's becoming harder to crank them out as much I would like. Of course that doesn't mean that I don't watch old films, in fact the opposite is true. I'm a complete retro addict, always trying to catch up on films that have slipped through the cracks of my collection over the years. Hence these new "retro slave" posts which will pop up now and then, basically whenever I'm swayed by the awesomeness of an older title. Hal Barwood's 1985 plague flick, Warning Sign, is just one of those films.

A claustrophobic underground plague thriller about trying to contain a virus outbreak,
