Highly entertaining, 27 March 2009
Author: maystie from United States

I went in to this movie at the SXSW festival having never heard of the Kuchar brothers; I just thought the description sounded intriguing. Boy, am I glad I took a chance on it; of all the films I saw during the festival, this was one of my favorites. It's a hilarious and sometimes poignant look at the world of underground filmmakers and identical (or maybe not) twins, George and Mike Kuchar.

These guys have made tons of no-budget films since the 50s, including such classics as The Naked and the Nude, Lust for Ecstasy, Hold Me While I'm Naked, The Devil's Cleavage...and they are fascinating characters to boot. After looking at clips from their movies, it's easy to see that the Kuchar films heavily influenced John Waters' early works.

I hope this documentary gets a distribution deal; it definitely deserves to be seen. If it plays on IFC or Sundance channel, do yourself a favor and check it out.
