Kaitlin's Quarantine Watch List

During these uncertain times, it is easy to get caught up in our everyday stress. It is understandably hard not to feel anxious about the future as a society, as well as personally. It can be uncomfortable not to follow our usual routine, but it doesn’t have to be. Whether you are isolated alone or with loved ones, it is still possible to connect with others despite the physical disconnect. Luckily, movies allow us to dive into another world—a perfect distraction from our current life. It is safe to say that there is no better time than now for us to escape the chaos even if it’s just for a little while.


Metal My Movie - Gimme Shelter

What can be said about The Rolling Stones that can make this Rock and Roll band seem Metal, besides their longevity as a band that still tours or those Keith Richards memes. It could be the band’s persona as the “Bad Boys” of Rock and Roll or the infamous Altamont Free Concert, which would later become known as a disaster. The band’s persona and the concert are the focus of Albert and David Maysles documentary, Gimme Shelter (1970). From these two themes we can analyze this documentary from a Metal perspective. 


Metal My Movie - Almost Famous

Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, I decided to rectify a blind spot viewing of mine and watch Almost Famous. Directed by Cameron Crowe, the film takes a focus on life on the road of a rock and roll band and their fans known as groupies. Audience views the film through the protagonist, a journalist writing an article for Rolling Stones magazine. From these two thematics we can see Almost Famous from a Metal perspective.


Metal My Movie - Force Majeure

When it comes to the country of Sweden and Metal music, most people often associate it with the subgenre of death metal. So why have I come to review this family drama about a ski trip in the French Alps? Is there anything metal about this film, other than the fact that Kristofer Hivju from HBO’s Game of Thrones co-stars? Maybe if we looked further at the sound design of the film and its central premise, there can be some metal aesthetics to be found.
