Thanks to Vice for giving us this little treat to share with you. This, our first full length video to be screened on LastSite is a rather interesting interview with Noam Chomsky. Often considered as one of the most notable figures in contemporary philosophy, Chomsky is most revered for his work as a political activist. In this interview by Kate Albright-Hanna he discusses everything from his team up with the band Bad Religion to the potential dangers of ‘Obama’s Army’.
Watch it here.....

Yes, yes I know, we're advertising, call us sell outs or what ever you like but before you judge us too harshly have a look at this interesting FREE I phone app made by Nike in conjunction with our friends Vice Magazine that could turn all though boring weekday nights/days around.

Christopher Walken is a God. It is impossible to love films and not love him, since the early 70s he has cast a huge shadow over the landscape of American film, working with some of the finest actors and directors in the world in helping to create some of the most iconic moments in movie history. In spite of the almost universal acclaim and affection towards him, he never seems to be mentioned in the same breath as De Niro, Pacino, Brando, Newman and the other great screen actors of the last century. His idiosyncratic nature and bizarre appearance means he rarely gets the choicest roles, a fact I lamented when reviewing King Of New York, and is often relegated to a mere supporting character beneath far inferior actors. In spite of this fact though, he has still been responsible for some of my favourite performances of all time, and so, because I’ve nothing better to do, here is my Christopher Walken top 5.

Someone once said never work with children or animals. But they never said anything about getting kids to review films based on animals.

Now that it looks abundantly clear that Avatar is destined to become the most successful film of all time (I’m still trying to control my rage enough to articulate how disappointed I was with it, but will post something soon enough), my thoughts turn to another film that came close to usurping Titanic as the all-time box office champion, Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight.

Remember sitting at home, making mix tapes for a friend or girl who took your fancy? Remeber sitting there wondering how amazing it be to see all these bands play at one festival, but then realising to your dismay that most festivals boil down to watching the current 'NME' hit parade whilst being surrounded by lager advertisments and mud covered teenagers desperate to make it look like the legal high they payed over the odds for actually works.
To say Jim Jarmusch is a filmmaker who defies cinematic traditions would be something of an understatement. After winning the Camera D’Or (Best First Film) at the 1984 Cannes Film Festival with his self-defined “hipster comedy” Stranger Than Paradise, he has gone on to create a body of work as unique as anyone working in American independent cinema.
