New York City writer/director Kevin Barker’s Last Kind Words – which gets its first hometown screening June 8 and 10 as part of the Brooklyn Film Festival – is a supernatural thriller with a Southern Gothic setting, starring Deadwood’s Brad Dourif, Spencer Daniels (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), and Sarah Steele (Spanglish). Barker has a parallel career as a musician, having worked with Devendra Banhart, Antony & The Johnsons, and Joanna Newsom, in addition to recording his own music. Ghosts, violence, and murky atmosphere abound in the multi-talented Brooklynite’s film, in which music unsurprisingly plays a key role.
Filmmaker: You’ve said that part of the inspiration for Last Kind Words came from the Delta blues tune “Last Kind Words Blues,” by Geeshie Wiley, which also happened to provide the soundtrack to a particularly creepy moment in the Crumb documentary. What’s the song’s relationship to the film?
