R.I.P. Peter Yates

Peter Yates, the director of two of my all-time favorite movies has recently passed away at the age of 81.

Not only are these two films exceptionally awesome, they’ve probably had more influence on my style, taste and interests than any other media I’ve ever been exposed to.

We’re talking bike racing, Steve McQueen, Italian stuff, car chases through San Francisco, etc etc etc.

A Sunday In Hell

Had a good ride this morning? Now time to check out the classic 1976 documentary about Paris-Roubaix with Eddy Merckx, Francesco Moser, Freddy Maertens and Roger De Vlaeminck. This is probably the best movie ever made about pro cycling so hit play and enjoy.

A Bout De Souffle

Yeah this is coming pretty late in the day but I just did this cool alleycat. Beaver Beavs got beat by the sickest Fuji Track Pro ever. I can’t even go into details it was that gnar. Oh and Beav met a straight-edge dude with a bunch of tattoos. It was very bromantic.

Anyway, today I’m in a French kinda mood. A Bout De Souffle (or Breathless for the Americans) is one of my favorite movies by one of my favorite directors, Jean-Luc Godard.

Hugo Koblet - Pédaleur de Charme

I remember seeing this trailer a couple months ago but I guess I spaced out on posting it up. Would really love to see this flick. Let’s get some bootleg imports!

Thanks to Hipster Nascar for the reminder.

It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

Oh yes it is! Something short and sweet after your Sunday morning ride (or hangover) and before you head out for some trick or treating. Watch it for free on Hulu and have a happy Halloween!

Deep Red

(aka Profondo Rosso)

So stoked on this film from the Italian artisan of terror, Dario Argento. It’s got everything you ever wanted from an Argento flick: surreal suspense, unusual murders, psychic powers, beautiful lavish imagery and of course a killer score from Goblin.

This is the English dubbed version for American audiences, which is missing about 20 minutes of the more violent imagery from the original Italian cut — but if you want, you can see the original here (it’s in Italian, no subs).
