David Blank directed Klaus Kinski in the ’80s horror flick Crawlspace and in this short underground film he discusses the actor’s outrageous antics on set.
Forget Roswell, the TV drama about good-lookin’ kids living in Nevada. The Magnificent Andersons is the real deal, a family of rednecks living near Area 51.
Amerikan Passport is a wildly ambitious documentary by Reed Paget about his two-year trek around the world to the most volatile hotspots in recent history.
Surprise Cinema is Bill Plympton’s hilarious new underground animated short film with violent Candid Camera-style pranks. The vicious gags are brilliant.

Esther Bell’s Godass is an ambitious underground video feature about a rebellious punk teenage girl trying to form a relationship with her homosexual father.
One of the best films at the 2000 New York Underground Film Festival was Magic City by David Wilson, an oblique documentary about life in Moberly, Missouri.
Migrating Forms by James Fotopoulos has an ironic title since nobody in the film goes anywhere. It’s an easy movie to love, but difficult to describe.
N.Y.H.C. by Frank Pavich is a very informative, and rockin’, look at the hardcore music scene in New York, featuring great interviews and band performances.
