Shut Up Little Man! An Audio Misadventure

Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area, I heard stories about these cheap and hilarious underground tape recordings of two San Francisco roommates arguing with one another, often violent and homophobic but always damn hilarious. Well now a filmmaker by the name of Matthew Bate has made a documentary that is sure to bring back nostalgic memories of my friends and I siting around our parent’s tape deck.

The Woman

Lucky McKee gets a lot of shit thrown at him by horror fans and critic alike but you got to give it to the man – he sure knows how to really get under your skin. See his previous work in May, Master of Horror’s Sick Girl, and the dark comedy RED. With pulp novelist Jack Ketchum’s work as a jumping-off point, McKee looks to make this a match made in the bowels of low-budget horror filmmaking in this upcoming wild and gruesome film.

I Melt with You

The much awaited psychological drama sounds like a more mature and less humorous Very Bad Things (Hey, Melt even has Jeremy “Ari Gold” Piven in a key role), as a group of friends that includes Rob “St. Elmo’s Fire” Lowe, Thomas “Punisher” Jane, and Christian “Orson Wells” McKay go on a weekend filled with drugs, sex, rock n’ roll, and disturbing enlightenment.

The Interrupters

Another epic documentary from Steve James (Hoop Dreams), this film follows a series of former gang members that now self-police the streets and neighborhoods in inner city Chicago. The grit, realism, and eclectic storytelling of James’s previous work seems to hit its apex here as the almost-3-hour documentary looks to be one of the toughest and most inspiring at this year’s festival.

Red State

Religious horror + horny teens + Micheal Parks+ John Goodman+ Kevin Smith+ DOGMA – Comedy = Most Anticipation at Sundance 2011 this year.
