Saint Bernard (2013) Composer carries severed dog's head through one surreal metaphor after another. Requires a high tolerance for artsiness for full enjoyment. TIL: As what God is cannot be fully comprehended, scripture often relies on metaphor and anthropomorphism to help out.

Still Voices - Howard The Duck (1986) "If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a small aquatic bird of the family anatidae on our hands." - Douglas Adams

Dad Rock Daily: Ultravox - Vienna (1980) Look, a seven minute synth opus opens the album, so don't act like you don't know exactly what you're getting. Laudable Lyrics: Moments caught across an empty room quickly passes. Time goes, time goes by too soon.

And finally, while I gave Joker a positive review, Alexi Sargeant over at First Things has a somewhat different take. His advice, don’t go see it. Obviously I disagree, but arguing has always been part of the fun of the moviegoing experience hasn’t it?  Read’em both and then let’s squabble.
