This Week’s Must Read is actually a series of reads. If you haven’t been following the One+One Filmmakers Journal new blog, you’ve been missing some of the best new writing on underground film past and present on the web. They’re really turning themselves into an invaluable resource over there. This past week they’ve run a great primer on Barbara Hammer, a review of the documentary It Came From Kuchar, and a piece on dissident filmmaking.
Robert Maier has an awesome story about a Baltimore-based underground film not directed by John Waters, but was to have featured Divine. Alas, the project fell through and it wasn’t to be. It was called Vacancy. (Completely unrelated to the horror movie of the same name.)
