Thursday evening culture report

An article at the New York Times has brought two fascinating looking films to my attention.

First, The Age of Stupid, a documentary about global warming framed in a backward-looking fictional future perspective starring Pete Postlethwaite. I very much liked the director's previous film, McLibel, and this looks good:

Also, Anvil! The Story of Anvil, a documentary about the eponymous Canadian heavy metal band:

And, for those of you who like this kind of music (and I count myself among you), here are sample of Anvil in action then ('School Love') and more recently ('Winged Assassins').
