Animals is considered to be a “concept...

Not only is punk music deep and influential, it is also a community. Punk does not have a real definition nor does it have a set of rules. Punk music is a variety of bands with a common bond.

“Nights of Cabiria” and “La Dolce Vita” left me absolutely stunned, in awe of what I had just witnessed. I found both of these films to be unspeakably beautiful, an in my opinion, the best of the films we’ve seen thus far. Both films are unmistakably Fellini. In “La Dolce Vita”, we are given a glimpse of a filmmaker that has moved far neo-realist roots. While “Nights Of Cabiria” was certainly a departure from neo-realism, (and far...
