Are you ready to take a walk on the wild side? Swing by our  Movies That Rock  DVD and Blu-ray display on the 2nd Floor. Not sure what to check out? Below are some staff recommendations from the display. Turn up your TV and get ready to rock!

Heather recommends:

Spin magazine says it best: "The missing link between punk and riot grrl wasn't a band or even a fleeting subgenre, but an amazing 1982 music-biz satire that was never properly released, seen only on late-night cable, crappy bootlegs, and at art-house revivals." Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains is a feminist sendup of the exploitative, sexist music business via the rise and fall of an all-girl band who embraces the punk ethos: we don't care what you think, and we're gonna do what we want to. Frontwoman Corinne "Third Degree" Burns encapsulates this feminist rebellion from the stage – "I'm perfect, but nobody … gets me because I don't put out." These 80s punk tweens – the actors who play The Stains (Diane Lane, Laura Dern, and Marin Kanter) ranged in age from 13-15 at the time of filming – present a refreshing perspective of the kind of defiant feminism embodied in the riot grrl movement. Some of my favorite musicians during high school – Courtney Love, Tobi Vail from Bikini Kill, Donna A of The Donnas, and virtually every member of L7 – cite this film as influential; members of The Clash and the Sex Pistols appear in supporting roles; this film has a lot of indie cred, but the main reason to watch it is that it's funny, smart, and stylish. Ladies and gentlemen, enjoy the ride!

Joel recommends:

I’m Not There – For me one of the more memorable and fascinating biographical films ever made, Todd Haynes’ Bob Dylan biopic features 6 different actors and actresses playing Dylan and his multiple personas. More than just a gimmick, Todd Haynes assembles these multiple personas to create an intentionally fractured and complex portrayal of the very complicated legend, which somehow feels more true to Dylan and his career than any straightforward portrayal could.

Coffee and CigarettesCoffee and Cigarettes is a collection of short films that Jim Jarmusch made over his career featuring various actors and musicians talking over coffee and cigarettes. Not all of the shorts are winners but it sure is fun to watch these personalities converse over random topics. A few favorites: Tom Waits and Iggy Pop celebrate quitting smoking by smoking a cigarette. Steve Buscemi and Cinqué and Joie Lee (brother and sister of Spike Lee) talk about Elvis’s evil twin. Jack White explains the brilliance of Nikola Tesla to Meg White. RZA and GZA of Wu-Tang warn Bill Murray about the harmful effects of caffeine and tobacco.

Craig recommends:

Hairspray, released in 1988, starring Ricki Lake, and featuring Divine, Mink Stole, Debbie Harry, Jerry Stiller, and Ruth Brown. The film revolves around self-proclaimed "pleasantly plump" teenager Tracy Turnblad, as she pursues stardom as a dancer on a local TV show and rallies against racial segregation. Hairspray is John Waters' second-highest-rated film (behind Multiple Maniacs and is considered 'perhaps John Waters' most accessible film. As such, it's a gently subversive slice of retro hilarity.'  In 2002, the film was adapted into a Broadway musical of the same name, which won Best Musical in 2003. A second film version of Hairspray, an adaptation of the stage musical, was also released in 2007, starring John Travolta, with many changes of scripted items from the original.

Kristin recommends:

The Doors' R-Evolution - Due to Jim Morrison's untimely death The Doors were only around for a short while. This Blu-Ray DVD features rare and seldom seen footage of the band and really showcases their creative style.

Myles recommends:

The Who’s Quadrophenia is a stylish coming of age film, based on The Who’s rock opera by the same name, directed by Franc Roddam. Bleak mid-sixties Brighton becomes the epicenter of two motorbike riding youth subcultures: the mods and rockers who clash in this grey seaside town. Unlike The Who’s previous rock opera adaptation of Tommy, Quadrophenia doesn't look psychedelic. Instead it appears gritty and true to life.

I Am Divine - Divine’s performances in John Water films like Pink Flamingos and Hairspray may overshadow her disco music career. I still hear “You Think You’re a Man” and “I’m So Beautiful” in clubs today. This comprehensive, biographical film takes you through every stage of the cult icon's life, from a young boy named Harris to the Divine we remember today.

Rhonda recommends: Cadillac Records

Sou Phetsomphou

In grade school history lessons, the United States is often described as a melting pot of people, cultures and religions from all around the world. In July, we celebrate the birth of our country and Independence Day.  In the July 4th issue of the San Francisco Chronicle, more than 15,000 people were said to be sworn in to become new U.S. citizens in naturalization ceremonies around the country. Inspired by the snippets of the backgrounds of these people, such as a Pakistani pharmacist and Iranian software engineer, this month’s audiobook selections feature the stories of Americans, past and present. From ordinary people to soldiers, these stories show there is no one American experience and the rich diversity of all of our people.

American Pastoral  by Philip Roth (CD Fic Roth)

Seymour ‘Swede’ Levov, a Jewish American businessman, and his perfect American middle class life is turned upside down in the political and social turmoil of Lyndon B. Johnson’s presidency and the 1960s. A Pulitzer Prize winner and made into film in late 2016.

Freedom  by Jonathan Franzen (CD Fic Franzen)

The idyllic lives of civic-minded environmentalists Patty and Walter Berglund of St. Paul, Minnesota come into question when their son moves in with aggressive Republican neighbors, green lawyer Walter takes a job in the coal industry, and go-getter Patty becomes increasingly unstable and enraged. A window into American life and family dynamics in the 1980s to early 2000s.

The Red Badge of Courage  by Stephen Crane (CD Fic Crane)

A classic novel set during the American Civil War about Henry Fleming, a Union Army soldier who runs from battle and his subsequent shame and desire to redeem himself.

Also available as an e-audiobook.

Brooklyn  by Colm Tóibín (CD Fic Tóibín)

Eilis Lacey finds herself reluctantly starting a new life in 1950s Brooklyn after she is given the chance to emigrate from Enniscorthy, Ireland by her family priest but later finds herself called back to Ireland due to a family tragedy. Made into a feature film in 2015.

On Canaan's Side by Sebastian Barry (CD Fic Barry)

Through journal entries, 89-year-old Lilly Bere narrates her story of fleeing from Ireland with her son to start a new life in America. She lives through the losses of loved ones, the civil rights movement, the Kennedy assastination, and the Vietnam war to the Gulf War while holding onto hope. Third in Sebastian Barry’s novels of the Dunne family.

The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead (CD Fic Whitehead)

The story opens with the capture of Ajarry, grandmother to Cora, and follows Cora from her life on a Georgia plantation to her escape through the Underground Railroad. In her pre-Civil War journey from South to North, she must outrun Ridgeway, a slave catcher, and encounters cruelty from whites, other slaves and freedmen. Winner of the 2016 National Book Award and the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.

Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders (CD Fic Saunders)

Inspired by the story of President Lincoln and his grief over the death of his son Willie, George Saunders takes artistic license to craft a story about the after-life of Willie Lincoln and his experience in the Bardo, the Tibetan name for the state of existence between death and the next life.

In grade school history lessons, the United States is often described as a melting pot of people, cultures and religions from all around the world. In July, we celebrate the birth of our country and Independence Day.  In the July 4th issue of the San Francisco Chronicle, more than 15,000 people were said to be sworn in to become new U.S. citizens in naturalization ceremonies around the country.
