Brave New Wild #

Released 7/26/2014

Description: BRAVE NEW WILD is an offbeat chronicle of America’s Golden Age of rock climbing before and after the controversial ascent of the Dawn Wall in 1970. Some forty years later, Oakley Anderson-Moore, the daughter of a pioneering climber, stumbles upon her father's old hi8 tapes, and sets out to respond the question: why climb when there's nothing to gain -- and everything to lose? Wry humor and an eclectic original soundtrack punctuate the delinquent antics of the Vulgarians in the ‘Gunks, the larger-than-life rivalry of Yosemite’s rock gods, and the fruit tramping, freight train hopping hobodom of her dad’s climbing life. This movie is quintessential viewing for those who long for adventure.

Description: This is a 1995 video shot in a room decorated for Christmas (there's a large decorated tree, presents, decorations, the entire 9 yards). Joannie is the only excerciser and she does it all to Christmas music. The intention of the tape, according to the box and Joannie's intro is to give you a fun workout to do between Thanksgiving and Christmas to hold your stress lvl down and hold you from gaining weight. […] Joannie is perky and slighlty grating at certain parts, but she is obviously trying to be upbeat and praise you for working out during this hectic time (one of the moves she talks about is to mimic holding vacation meal trays!). But the melody is great! There is certainly something to be told for working out to Rudolph in the August heat and humidity. — videofitness.com

Uncle Meat Reviews:

There is a way to Zappa's madness. One thing a lot of folks haven't picked up on in reviewing this movie is that there are two soundtracks testing simultaneously throughout. Sometimes it's a delay of roughly ten seconds. Another times it's a entire another soundtrack entirely. To really play the film, one gotta ignore the soundtrack that corresponds with the images. Of course, that's like saying you not to think of a pink elephant. I watched this with headphones on. Like listening to any nice album, headphones are the method to go with UNCLE MEAT - be it the album or the movie.One thing folks have pointed out is that Frank reportedly wasn't on drugs when he directed this. However, it's apparent from watching it (and another Zappa films) that many of those who worked with Frank were. He merely turned his cameras on them. Andy Warhol did the same thing with his group. So was Frank exploiting them? Was Andy? Maybe the reason there was a rivalry between the two camps has to do with how related these two artists were in there approach to film-making. By contrast, Warhol was far more minimalist in his approach while Zappa was all about sensory overload. So there are times while watching a Zappa movie one wishes he was a tad more minimalist and where Andy was concerned, the opposite is true.One gotta also realize there's not only two soundtracks testing here, but two movies as well. One is the documentary about the movie and the another is the movie itself. So there is more than merely a nod to the Maysles' GIMME SHELTER in UNCLE MEAT with all the cuts to the editing room.I reiterate, if only Zappa had paid more attention to Warhol's movies and learned to bring things to a minimum at times, this movie might be more accessible. But then that's like suggesting if only Stan Brakhage had used sound more often or Jean-Luc Goddard fewer jump cuts. To every filmmaker his own, in another words. If you are a fanatic of Zappa's, don't miss this one. It makes a fine prequel to 200 MOTELS even though it was finished later.


As I have been a long time fanatic of Frank Zappa's music, I figured he would approach movie with the same satirical sense of humour that often accompanies his music. Boy, was I right! This trippy film, which was started in 1967 as a weak (no)budget Science Fiction movie (with concert sequences by Zappa & The Mothers Of Invention) quickly turned into a cinema verite gratis for all (i.e. the plot was tossed into the dustbin and became a cinematic stream of consciness affair). The movie seems to be divided up into a series of episodes, featuring different members of the Mothers in various roles. This movie should be confusing to the first timer that is fresh to Zappa (it was filmed over a 20 year period,and the entire blob was converted to video format,for home video consumption). Anyone who bought the original soundtrack record album in 1969 will recognize some of the melody that was written for the movie (tho,not all of the melody on the record was used---in fact,a nice block of the melody is not used). Worth seeking out for the difficult core Zappa fan.


If you are a fanatic of the original Mothers of Invention this movie is a gotta see. Frank Zappa takes us back to the early days of the Mothers using private archive footage of himself and the band on the road. This movie is a prequel to Zappa's Masterpiece 200 Motels. Highlights of this film are a Home film montage of Electric Aunt Jemima and a live performance of Frank and the Mothers at the Royal Albert Hall in London England plus the fun side of being on the street and of course Don Preston as the Monster. I want the Zappa Family Believe would release this Film on a DVD because this Movie is a gotta for any Mothers of Invention Fan....Mary Peterpuffer March 16 2008.
