Synopses & Reviews
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.
