Underground Film Links: July 8, 2012
This Week’s absolute Must Read proves exactly why you should never absolutely trust what you read on IMDB. You may think it’s a 100% accurate website, but you’d be wrong. How wrong? The Temple of Schlock runs down the data on a bevy of

a very lengthy profile of NYC icon Lloyd Kaufman. About freakin’ time they did! Plus, 366 Weird Movies has the full rundown of
Troma movies on YouTube. And, is ? Meshes of the Afternoon a “weird” movie Salise Hughes releases
an original digital drawing based on her upcoming that is really, really cool looking. Charades project Aryan Kaganof posted up a scan of a new article in the Sunday Independent about
his new film Interactions: A Strategy of Difference and Repetition, a “non-commercial” in-joke about the insider-y-ness of the arts community.

the cruddy quality of the VHS image. I don’t read French, but I think
Jonas Mekas got an impressive award from that country.
