Aro Favourite Rewind This!


USA 2013, 90 minutes
Dir. Josh Johnson
Rating: [Exempt]
Genres: Documentary / Film History


Aroview: An Aro Favourite carried by our shameless bias, this essential documentary pays timely and passionate tribute to the humble video cassette and its impact as a technological revolution and global cultural phenomenon.

Those of us that lived through the glorious era of home-taping, video rental and collecting, the distribution boom and VHS movie-making may weep tears of sadness and tears of joy rewinding through thirty years of such spoils, but its also a keen introduction for millennials and digital natives with analogue-envy or historical curiosity.

Features a exhaustive array of enthusiasts, experts and B-movie icons (incl. 'Basket Case' dir. Frank Henenlotter and Cassandra 'Elvira' Peterson), and even conjecture about the future of the medium, the only thing we perhaps missed was more about the mid-80's gold rush for the mom-and-pop video retailer...
