You Cant Kill Meme (Blu-ray)
by Justin Remer
The Movie: Director Hayley Garrigus's 2021 documentary You Can't Kill Meme is part sociology lesson and part character study. It explores the idea of "meme magic," which is a concept adopted by the alt-right posters in the 4chan message board community to imbue their use of catchy meme images (like Pepe the Frog and Ebola-Chan) with the mystical power to bring real-world change.Garrigus narrates the doc in a lo-fi style reminiscent of a Youtube instructional (or conspiracy theory) video as she alternately charts the development of meme magic's cultural influence and uses her personal relocation to Las Vegas as an opportunity to talk with people for whom outsider ideologies have great appeal.

Thanks, I suppose, go to Kino Lorber (kind of one of my favorite labels these days) for digging up another Made For TV Movie that would have adequately killed a Saturday evening in December 1979, when it was released on an unsuspecting public. Those were indeed the days. Directed by stalwart TV master Joseph Pevney, (maybe best known for Star Trek) and starring Peter Lawford, Steven Keats and Jamie Lyn Bauer, Mysterious Island Of Beautiful Women tells the story of a mysterious island inhabited, in part, by a rather small 'tribe' of beautiful women, as well as a somewhat larger tribe of savage men known as 'headchopp...Read the entire review »
