Publisher Comments:

Wholphin is a new quarterly DVD magazine lovingly encoded with unique and ponderable films designed to make you feel the way we felt when we learned that dolphins and whales sometimes, you know, do it.

The third issue of Wholphin features the rediscovered early work of Alexander Payne and Dennis Hopper. New-found talent abroad including Jonas Odell and Alice Winocour. The strangest Japanese film we've ever seen from the three-man directing team, Naisu No Mori. A documentary about a thirteen-year-old Yemeni girl who refuses to wear her veil. And "The Popcorn Effect" of trap-jaw ants.

This issue also includes a bonus disc featuring Part Two: "The Phantom Victory" of Adam Curtis's powerful documentary, The Power of Nightmares.

Synopsis:

The third issue of Wholphin features a brilliant student film by Alexander Payne (Sideways, Election), Dennis Hopper's legendary performance art piece "The Russian Suicide Chair," the second installment in Bob Odenkirk's (Mr. Show) hilarious Derek and Simon series, unforgettable scenes of after-school Dada in the Japanese film "Funky Forest," documentation of the trap-jaw ant's record-breaking predatory strike, newfound talent abroad in France and Sweden, a Yemeni documentary following the bravest thirteen-year-old girl in the world as she refuses to wear the veil, and more.

Issue No. 3 also includes Part II: "The Phantom Victory" of Adam Curtis'

riveting documentary, The Power of Nightmares.

What a great idea - a digest of odd, interesting short films. Unless you are attending an esoteric film festival, these are films we never get to see in a theater. They seem to be chosen with the same thought and care as the fiction in McSweeney's. On the whole they are a great selection balanced between art, comedy and documentary. Joe-bob sez: check it out!
