This never turned out to be anything more than a promotion but I wish it were real.

last night he moderated a Jodorowsky Q&A at the Egyptian. i only didn't go because Holy Mountain isn't an example of how i'm a fan of Jodorowsky.

so i googled their backstory and google worked like it should. here's Jodorowsky saying Refn saved him from film depression



Refn dedicated Only God Forgives to Jodorowsky, oh that's right. here's the article that reminded me and a quote from it

Quote
Refn explains how the hyper-expressive Jodorowsky is the one
that gave Refn the courage to avoid the big blockbuster sinkhole. “I called
Jodorowsky in Paris and he says to me, ‘What is this shit in Hollywood, why?’”
Refn says, launching into an impassioned Jodo impersonation. “And I thought I
was being yelled at! ‘You must not let your vision be destroyed!’ And I was
like, I know, I know, I was wrong. ‘You have to stay true, or else I’ll not
like you anymore!’ He’s like ninety, but he has the mind of a comet.

wilder's post of that article. i guess the news was the Q&A, kind of minor news, really i remembered things out loud oh okay sure.

First images from Too Old To Die Young, which may not premiere until 2019. Refn is also posting production videos on Facebook (log in to view…they’re long, like 45 min to an hour)

Refn's streaming service, byNWR.com, is launching later this month, for free.

Quote from: The Guardian


Over recent years, I’ve bought and had restored scores of old movies as a hobby. I wondered what to do with them. Then I realized I should share them for free, so I set up a website where they could be streamed. There’s no catch; you’re not being sold anything. Take it or leave it.

Why these particularly movies? I knew director Curtis Harrington, who passed away in 2007, so Night Tide was a very personal choice for me. Curtis had been so disappointed with his career, and yet he had made what I consider to be one of the most important films of the pre-counterculture movement. And the film was rapidly disintegrating because of the condition of the negative. I had to rescue it. It reminds me of a Hans Christian Andersen fairytale: it’s almost naively adolescent in its expression of falling in love, being obsessed with something delicate and fragile.

Bert Williams’ The Nest of the Cuckoo Birds proves a movie can be the impossible, lonely burden of just one person. Bert’s name appears in the credits more than even mine is in my films – and I admire such obsession and megalomania. Maybe, like Bert, you only need to make one movie in your life. Bert – an artist who created the outrageous poster for the film – decided to paint on film instead of a canvas. Cuckoo Birds is a strange, singular example of an unidentifiable genre, because it’s a bit of everything: horror, sex, melodrama.



Ron Ormond’s The Burning Hell is a fantastic marriage of extreme propaganda and lowest-common-denominator pandering. It’s so aggressive in selling you the Bible, it’s practically an attack on your senses. Yes, it’s laughable, maybe even terrible, but this only serves to make it more unique. It’s almost an installation art piece. And some might consider the star of the show, Reverend Estus Pirkle, to be a bit of a Trump precursor.

Dale Berry’s Hot Thrills and Warm Chills is a prime example for the argument that art doesn’t have to contain a single drop of good taste. My fetish for Berry is so great that I not only bought all of his films, I bought all of his clothes – a collection of Nudie western suits. Low-budget regional cinema fascinates me. These were movies made by people who had no ideas of what a film was supposed to be, and feel more as if they were made for the people at the bar on the corner or the cafeteria down the street than for Americans at large.
