Bad ass. Wish I could attend but I don't live in the big city.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

Wow, rad poster. Congrats Mac, this is awesome! Wish I could attend.

Will there be other screenings? Eventual web posting?...

I certainly hope so. Right now going the festival route with it (Cannes being one). Crossing fingers it gets selected somewhere.


Eventual web posting?...

Kinda tricky that. Because of the nudity, and that my lead actress works with kids, trying not to display it where one of them might somehow stubble across it doing a Google search (hence her alternate name).

So I would rather mail a DVD to you or whoever here wants to see it.

Couple clips from the film (forgive the poor quality, please):

That looks really interesting.  Reminds me of the Cremaster movies, probably because of the music, but it also seems very much its own thing.  I'd love to see the whole thing sometime.  Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for watching and the comment. If you're still caravaning by LA, I'll give you a copy when we meet.

I would love to see this, but alas, I am confined to Chicago.

How may I go about obtaining a DVD of this?

Holy shit.  I'm not quite sure how to phrase this yet, so expect an edit to this in a little bit.

It was really beautiful, you definitely have an eye for detail.  I need to rewatch this a couple more times to give a better, more accurate assessment.  But thank you a lot for sharing this with me.

Wow! Man this was quite compelling.  Very meditative and poetic, with some incredibly striking images. I definitely felt a Lynch vibe with a little Gus Vant Sant ala  Elephant/Gerry mixed in. I loved the score, and kudos to your lead leading lady for a very brave and intriguing performance.

Congrats Mac! I can't wait to see your next piece.

Watch it ppl.

so the dvd arrived. neat package!

im with cbrad on this one, and to add something else I liked the editing too when depicting the routine and boredome of everyday life.

nice music too, even thought it would be some famous obscure piece but no, so congrats to the musician.


many many thanks mac for sending this and i look forward to see whatever you do next.

Thanks for the accolades, my friends.


Anyone else interested in viewing but doesn't want a DVD copy mailed to them, I now have it available online for download. PM me for the link.
