"Be Kind Rewind" is a decent comedy with a clever story and idea. I had never seen a film like it before.
Two friends, Jerry and Mike (Jack Black And Mos Def) own a video store called "Be Kind Rewind" They have almost no business, no customers, and only a few VHS's in stock.

Before this movie came out, there was some positive buzz about the damned thing but when it was eventually released, the reactions were rather mixed after all. Since it was directed by Michel Gondry, I still wanted to check it out and make my own opinion. Eventually, I'm not really sure what I should think about this flick. Indeed, it must be the goofiest movie I have ever seen as the concept was ... read more

"1st Annual Sweded Films Competition Sorry, no images to share here. My friend noticed that Row House was holding a Sweded Films competition prior to screening Be Kind Rewind as part of their week-long run of Gondry's films, and when he told me about it we had to go. Originally we'd planned to see Be Kind Rewind as well, but he had other plans & since he was my ride I left when he did. The competition consisted of 12 short films, Sweded versions of the following: The Exorcist Tommy Boy The Mat"

"Rewinding Dreams of rewinding a tape or a clock signify that you are going backward out of a fear of moving forward in your life. Or perhaps you are feeling the need to introspectively review your life to reclaim old terrain and retrieve an aspect of your past that you've denied. "
