Monthly Art #2

This is a monthly “newsletter”, containing a list of what I enjoyed the most last month. Whether it was a full length movie, short film, music album or book or even painting.

Film - eXistenZ (1999)

Many people compare it with The Matrix (1999), what is wrong. eXistenZ tries to show us how dangerous “full immersion” games could be. Now, when we have Oculus Rift and similar technologies, it may be not so far we will see completely realistic games.

Documentary - Valley Uprising (2014)

Not so long ago I’ve started to watch documentaries. And this movie was for me a real boon. Very colorful, exciting, it won’t let you go until the very end. Valley Uprising tells the story of a group of young people, who do not fit into the “standard” american life and decide to do, what they love - rock climbing.
