Ladislas Starewicz

Check out this early (1934) animated film by Russian great Ladislas Starewicz, called The Devil's Ball. A bit of a mind bender, as it alternates without warning between being funny and being disturbing.

The Man Behind the Man Behind Oz

Profile by Michael Patrick Hearn of W. W. Denslow, the original illustrator of Frank Baum's Wizard of Oz books. "The poet Eunice Tietjens described him as ‘a delightful old reprobate who looked like a walrus.’” Be sure to check out the accompanying gallery of his work, too.

The Intergalactic Mashup King

"Werner Herzog’s new film, The Wild Blue Yonder, is the world’s first undersea outer-space sci-fi documentary." Judging from the review in Wired, it sounds like another weird and wonderful Herzog experience is in store for us. Can't wait.
