New York Underground Film Festival
The New York Underground Film Festival just wrapped up this week, but here are some more great fests coming up, including ones in Chicago, Boston and Brooklyn.
Todd Phillips, co-founder of the New York Underground Film Festival, made a surprising appearance on the World Poker Tour last night. He played pretty tight.
Giuseppe Andrews’ trailer park love story In Our Garden is my Movie of the Year for it’s jaw-droppingly obscene language coming out of a sweet old lady.
South Korean exploitation film Teenage Hooker Became Killing Machine in DaeHakRoh by Nam Ki-Woong goes over the top and beyond with its gross gore effects.
My apologies to Lynne Sachs. I had to step out of a screening of her Investigation of a Flame to go watch a demonstration by Fred Phelps’ anti-gay group.
In Our Garden is an outrageous and offensive directing tour-de-force by Giuseppe Andrews. A film of untold brilliance that batters the audience senseless.
Cul De Sac: A Suburban War Story is a moving documentary directed by Garrett Scott about Shawn Nelson, who went on a tank rampage in San Diego years ago.
Vladimir Gyorski’s Resin attempts to be a stinging indictment of California’s “Three Strikes” law, filmed using the production theories of Dogme 95.
Josh Koury’s documentary Standing By Yourself taught me a new verb: “tussin,” which is the act of swallowing a whole bottle of cough syrup to get high.
