The Mobius Home Video Forum (, one of the Web's most
open-minded and informative film sites as even Cahiers du Cinema noted, is
in the middle of a now-annual fund drive.  First-time visitors to the site
might get the impression that it's mainly for fans of low-brow cinema but
among the chat about Mario Bava and Indonesian Terminator rip-offs have
been informed discussions of directors as diverse as Hou Hsiao-Hsien, Abbas
Kiarostami, Howard Hawks, Raul Ruiz, Bruce Conner, Ken Loach, Orson Welles,
etc.  Thanks to active moderators, the tone is friendly and calm with no
flame wars and though it's definitely not an academic site most Mobius
posters have a playful seriousness that's too often missing in much current
arts discourse.
