Neutral Milk Hotel - On Avery Island Music Album Reviews

Each Sunday, Pitchfork takes an in-depth look at a significant album from the past, and any record not in our archives is eligible. Today, we revisit the oft-overshadowed debut from indie rock icons, a smaller and more intimate look into the mercurial world of Jeff Mangum.
In the mid-’90s, Jeff Mangum moved into a haunted closet in Denver where he had dreams of women in fur coats drinking champagne, yelling at him to get out of their house. During a snowy Colorado winter, the Louisiana-born songwriter and his childhood friend Robert Schneider set about recording what would become Neutral Milk Hotel’s debut album. They worked feverishly, going out to smoke cigarettes when they hit a roadblock, until, in May of 1995, they had a finished record. The North Carolina indie label Merge scooped up the young band and quietly released On Avery Island the following March.

Working Woman Movie Review

Works Pretty Well

Michal Aviad's "Working Woman" is an Israeli take on the #MeToo movement that has taken off in America. Her view on it is presented through the eyes of its main character, Orna (Liron Ben Shlush), a woman confronted with the dilemma so many women have experienced.

Orna lives with her husband Ofer (Oshri Cohen) and their two young children. He has recently opened a restaurant that is struggling to survive. Benny (Menashe Noy), an old friend who is now very wealthy in real estate development, offers her a job with his firm despite her having no previous experience in real estate. It's an exciting and potentially lucrative offer, so she accepts.


Orna is intuitively bright and she does a great job, becoming an extremely valuable asset very quickly. Soon her skills eclipse Benny’s, and it's an arrangement that works splendidly for both of them. 

As you have probably already surmised, Benny lets Orna know that he is very attracted to her and forcibly kisses her, making her exceedingly uncomfortable. Benny apologizes profusely, but even though Orna decides to stay on in her job, without telling her husband about what happened, we know that Benny is going to try again.

Orna becomes more and more successful until Benny requests that she accompany him on a business trip to Paris. Gee, I wonder if that may turn out to be a problem. She goes with him and the business side of the trip is an overwhelming success, specifically because of Orna. Then comes the inevitable sexual assault.

Back home, Orna's personality has changed dramatically, especially with her husband. Eventually, Orna tells him everything, well actually not everything. In her telling, she feels at least some of the blame belongs to her, which I understand. What I don't understand is that she leaves out the most important details. This is where I wonder if, as a man, I cannot fully understand the situation. A woman watching it might have a far more accurate read on what has happened.

I thing "Working Woman" is a good film, but hardly special. Again, a woman watching it might think it is a great film or maybe she might hate it, or maybe more likely it's nonsense to assume that all women think alike. I can only view it through my eyes and brain, and to me, it's just okay.
