The sequel to Tales from the Crypt. Five strangers trapped in a basement vault converse about their recurring nightmares. Their stories include vampires, bodily dismemberment, east Indian mysticism, an insurance scam, and an artist who kills by painting his victims' deaths.
In this tour-de-force of stylized deconstruction, the Yonemotos rewrite a traditional narrative of desire — boy meets girl, boy loses girl. Employing the hyperbolic, melodramatic syntax of Hollywood movies and commercial TV, they decode the Freudian symbology and manipulative tactics that underlie media representations of romantic love, and expose the power of this media “reality” to construct personal fictions. Using the psychoanalytic language of advertising, cinematic and television texts to tell the love story of a pole vaulter/concert cellist and a cowboy/Abstract Expressionist painter, they rupture the narrative with psychosexual metaphors and references to pop media and art. Self-conscious strategies such as overtly Freudian symbols, flashback reconstructions of childhood traumas, Wagnerian orchestration and loaded cliches are wielded with deft irony.

Rolling Stones fans have been gifted with a number of exciting and at least relatively rare releases culled from the Stones' supposed "vault" over the past several months, including The Rolling Stones: From the Vault - Hampton Coliseum - Live in 1981, The Rolling Stones: From the Vault - The Marquee - Live in 1971, The Rolling Stones: From the Vault — Hyde Park Live, 1969 and The Rolling Stones From the Vault: Live at the Tokyo Dome , and now one stop of the Stones' 1982 tour is documented in this extremely high energy show culled from a Roundhay Park in Leeds. This was a swan song of sorts for the band, at least from a live performance standpoint and at least for a while if not forever, and it seems that the boys wanted to go "out" on a high note of excitement. Mick is in a lather from virtually the get go here, strutting and posing in his inimitable way through a set that draws largely but not exclusively on the then recent Tattoo You.
A tripartite formal investigation of symmetry, non-transparency, and the illusion of depth in three different time periods and locations. Still images flutter, and plans are thwarted in the execution.
