Underground Film Links: January 15, 2012

By Mike Everleth ⋅ January 15, 2012

Robert Nelson in The Great Blondino
  1. This Week’s Absolute Must Read: Mark Toscano’s touching tribute to the recently deceased Robert Nelson. I posted this link up a few days ago in Nelson’s¬†Underground Film Journal obit, but I know from my stats that not many of you clicked it. If you haven’t read this yet, you must do so. Nelson is one of the under-appreciated greats of the ’60s underground and his work may have been lost forever if not for Toscano. This is important. Go read. And learn.
  2. Also on Nelson, Making Light of It has scanned in and posted Scott MacDonald’s interview with the filmmaker for his Critical Cinema series.
  3. And, while you’re at it, go check out Canyon Cinema’s Robert Nelson offerings and read up on his work.
  4. And in “classic” underground filmmaker news, Experimental Cinema has the scoop on Criterion putting out a Hollis Frampton DVD and Blu-ray.
  5. Onto the “new”: I’m thrilled to learn that Bob Moricz will be directing another Xiu Xiu music video. Their first collaboration is a classic that you probably haven’t seen, so click through to watch that.
  6. Indiewire profiles Nicholas McCarthy in regards to his Sundance debuting feature The Pact. I’m not going to Sundance myself, but I hope I get to see this soon.
  7. J.J. Murphy reviews the indie hit Bellflower.
  8. Did you know Divine was the world’s first rap star? Well, she was.
  9. Britain bans Adam Rheimer’s The Bunny Game and Ain’t It Cool News has a good anti-censorship rant about it.
