For 2009, each month I will highlight one movie that is currently out on video (DVD or Blu-Ray) that I personally recommend. The goal is to highlight and promote movies that you might have missed and definitely need to check out.
To kick this off we have Linda Linda Linda, a movie that still hasn’t gotten the cult following it deserves! Filmmaker Nobuhiro Yamashita crafts one hell of a nice minimal masterpiece of coming of age awkwardness, friendship and love letter to music (more specifically the band Blue Hearts). For fans of movies that feature aspiring musicians, celebration of music and coming of age nostalgia, this is a must own movie! So what are you waiting for go rent/buy this movie now!
