This Week’s Must Read: Filmmaker Jesse Malmed has a wonderful in-depth article with fellow filmmaker Julie Perrini up at the art blog Bad At Sports. Yes, you’ll want to read all about Perrini’s work processes and her evolution as a filmmaker, but you’ll really be fascinated to hear why she had to — as the interview’s title says — explain what state smashers are to a grand jury.
The Broward Palm Beach New Times ran a good interview with John Waters, not so much about his movies but about his general interests. Best part of the article: He says he loved J.J. Murphy’s recent book on the films of Andy Warhol, The Black Hole of the Camera. Just like us! Seriously, if you haven’t read that book yet, you’re really missing out on something wonderful.
