PTA's Short Films... (Video inside)
« on: August 21, 2012, 08:19:49 PM »
Basically, someone asked for a place to find a couple of his short films so I went ahead and uploaded them here... 

The Dirk Diggler story (1988):

Blossoms & Blood (2003):

I know the dirk diggler story is poor quality, that's because is a VHS rip.. Only copy I could find.

BTW, (Shameless plug ahead) that is my personal youtube channel, (as some of you already know) I upload a lot of PTA goodies in there... So Subscribe if you want to... There's more to come.

P.s: Cigarettes and Coffee will be up shortly..
Fuck this place..... I got a script to write.

Sweet can we get those pieces of shit he did with Sandler and David spade up in here?

I'll dig up links to previous discussions about them..

Good to have a refresher course for the coming influx of newbs.

Small thread on cigs and cof:
Ancient thread on DD story:
Haha..pitiful thread for SNL Fanatic:

^I have to quote this relevant bit from the last discussion which features a highly accurate description of PTA's forays into short film:

that's about as painful as every other short-length foray into comedy that pta has made. especially awkward due to the fucked up deaths of anna nicole and her son (both overdoses). and this was hardly amusing even before that.
seriously tho.. between this, couch and that david spade piece of shit (don't even want to remember the name), i am actually GLAD that no footage from "flagpole special" has ever emerged. we can be pretty sure that it would just be completely unbearable and embarrassing. this is only of interest to completists and ultra fans whose solid foundation of love for pta could withstand the ASSAULT ON GOOD TASTE that these short pieces inflict. everyone else should steer clear and level-headed fans should do everything in their power to distance PTA from these atomic turds. not since Fear and Desire has a non-canonical work had such power to negatively impact a well-earned PERFECT reputation.

now let us never speak of this again..

under the paving stones.

This is great news, Tyler. And I'll tell you why: because we're finally porting over the archives from the old site which includes helpful sections like Short Films.


Anything you can find/upload that's better quality than what's out there we will embed. That goes for Music Videos too.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

P you broke your own golden rule  :bravo:

Couch and Demo Jail aren't that bad.  DJ was clearly a favor for Spade's now defunct show, probably shot and edit by PTA himself.  For you to compare it to Fear and Desire is probably just as humourous as the shorts themselves.  I'm sure PTA still laughs at them.  He might even consider them "a bumbling amateur film exercise" but its probably because he's got a hard on for Kubrick.  I don't blame him, but shame on you.  The former comment is the funniest thing you've said in a while.  try to edify instead of testify.
