No true movie junkie is going to want to miss Side by Side. In case you haven't noticed, digital capture and projection are slowly sending old-fashioned celluloid into the archives. What does it mean for movies? Keanu Reeves, making an astute and witty interviewer in Chris Kenneally's vital film, asks many of our best directors where they stand in the digital revolution. Their answers might surprise you. Steven Soderbergh and David Lynch are eager converts, while Christopher Nolan and Martin Scorsese feel a loss. The film clips, side by side, are revelatory. Jump in.

    “Whoomp! (There It Is)”

    Tag Team | 1993

    Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
