RomanPolanskiRollingStone

Roman Polanski may not be going anywhere for a while, now that (allegedly?) raping a 13-year-old has finally caught up with him and all. He may be holed up in a Swiss jail, but his films provide a trip around the world. Even after his exile from the United States in 1977, the director continued to shoot on location throughout Europe ... Read More »

It’s a Mod, Mod World

S&M Cafe 4-6 Essex Rd. Islington, London

You know we love music and you know we love movies, so it should come as no surprise that ‘Quadrophenia‘ is one of our all-time favorites. The 1979 film is based on The Who’s 1973 rock opera album of the same name. It’s the story of Jimmy, a young Londoner with a dead-end job who finds release in the sharp ... Read More »
