REWIND THIS: THE BEGINNING & END OF PERFECTION
 
Rewind This: The Beginning & End of Perfection on Severed Cinema

Back in 2013, Filmbuff and IPF Productions released a nifty little documentary called Rewind This!  An exploding industry without rules!  Direct-to-video madness!  VHS vs BETA!

This 90 minute masterpiece tells us the history from beginning to end.  Through footage of tapes, flea markets and stores, interviewing collectors, directors, distributors and video box artists.  Along the way there's Lloyd Kaufman, Frank Henenlotter, Charles Band, and Elvira.  Director Josh Johnson really fills the screen with awesomeness and never lets the time grow dull.

Relive John Cleese and his cat using a video machine, wonder at the Betamax, smile as Bubba Smith (Police Academy) says I love you, whilst introducing his work-out video.

Rewind This! needs to be seen if you haven't already.  For anyone who's ever caressed the box of an ex-rental in their collection (like me).
