More From DBRL...
We recently added “David Holzman’s Diary” to the DBRL collection. This film played at the True/False Film Festival in 2013, and currently has a rating of 100% from critics at Rotten Tomatoes. Here’s a synopsis from our catalog:
In this 1967 faux-documentary, a man tries to put all of his life experiences on celluloid. His insistence upon poking his camera where it isn’t wanted results only in irritation, alienation, and a few bloody noses. As Holzman’s life (and his film) becomes harder to follow, the audience is liable to be as confused as David, especially if they make the mistake of taking this whole thing seriously. Filmed like cinema verite, it’s a well-disguised fiction about the deceptions of cinematic illusionism and the lies people tell themselves in order to live.

We recently added “Sound City” to the DBRL collection. The film currently has a rating of 100% from critics at Rotten Tomatoes. We also have the film soundtrack, Sound City: Reel to Reel, available to check out. Here’s a synopsis from our catalog:
In 2012 Dave Grohl purchased the legendary Neve 8028 recording console from Sound City Studios. The board, built in 1972, is considered to be the crown jewel of analog recording equipment, having recorded such artists as Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac, Johnny Cash, Guns and Roses, Metallica, and many other musical legends. This tells the story of real rock history, and celebrates the music, as Grohl gathers some of rock’s greatest artists to collaborate on a new album using this classic console.
