Underground Film Links: June 16, 2013

By Mike Everleth ⋅ June 16, 2013

Film still from Supermigration by Michael Robinson
  1. This week’s Must Read is one that I missed from awhile back: The Creators Project interviewed Moviate’s Michael Robinson about how his experimental filmmaking style has been applied to his music video-making career. It’s a great, in-depth read about Robinson’s approach to combining images with sound.
  2. GoreGirl reviews the work of Kenneth Anger, and she includes lots of lovely screenshots from Fireworks and more.
  3. The Metro News has a nice article on the first ever Winnipeg Underground Film Festival going on this weekend.
  4. Filmmaker Magazine interviewed Calvin Lee Reeder about his second feature film, The Rambler, and working with an actual name star for the first time, Dermot Mulroney.
  5. Here’s an interesting oldie, but a goodie: Fred Camper raves about the inventive work of cult movie director Larry Cohen. What’s especially interesting here is that I read Camper’s intro paragraph before realizing article was from 1987! (h/t CUFF’s Bryan Wendorf)
  6. Fandor takes a look at the eclectic career of Curtis Harrington, which began in the underground film world and morphed into the TV and genre movie worlds.
  7. Documentary filmmaker Jessica Oreck needs men. No, not like that…
  8. Not necessarily underground: Apparently in England, there’s a Hot Tub Cinema club where people go watch movies while, yes,  sitting in hot tubs. Great idea! (for non-germaphobes.)
  9. 366 Weird Movies takes a look at 1988’s Hell Comes to Frogtown, which features the feature film starring debut of Rowdy Roddy Piper.
  10. Not sure if this will become a regular feature, but I’d like it to be. Here are some Facebook pages, I’d like you to like: Everything Is Forever, the new film from the Random Lunacy crew; and the new page for filmmaker Mr. Young.
  11. Not underground: My pal Michael Neno reviews the obscure 1933 film Gabriel Over the White House, which argued for a pro-totalitarian U.S.
  12. Not underground: I’m sure most people saw those weird “movies are imploding” comments by Spielberg and Lucas, but Professor Chutry provides the most interesting take on the hubbub.
