Trash Humpers (2009) Harmony Korine

- - i heart

Harmony Korine’s newest feature will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival

U.S.A/2009, 78 min, color: A film unearthed from the buried landscape of the American nightmare, TRASH HUMPERS follows a small group of elderly Peeping Toms through the shadows and margins of an unfamiliar world. Crudely documented by the participants themselves, we follow the debased and shocking actions of a group of true sociopaths the likes of which have never been seen before. Inhabiting a world of broken dreams and beyond the limits of morality they crash against a torn and frayed America. Bordering on an ode to vandalism,it is a new type of horror; palpable and raw.

A Walk into the Sea: the Danny Williams Story and the Warhol Factory

- - i heart

I had the great fortune of lending a hand on this film. Esther is a dear friend and this film is an amazing exploration into the life and disappearance of her Uncle Danny. Earlier tonight I caught the film on the Sundance Channel. It is a moving piece of work that’s hauntingly beautiful. Props to t. griffin for the score and Danny’s own films are breath taking.

RiP! A Remix Manifesto

Pitchfork is showing Brett Gaylor’s film RiP! A Remix Manifesto this week for FREE. I got to see the film at SXSW and loved it. It is a great overview of some of the issues surrounding copyright in the US. Well worth a watch. The film is split into sections on the Pitchfork site.
