Crop And Save
Kate Bush: Female Genius At Work (re:Line,Cross,&The Curve)
Saw this movie at the NuArt (West L.A.) theater in California some time ago.
Just want to add how much I myself enjoyed the work of this artist.
Though KATE BUSH supposedly downplays her own creation as "not her best work" this film,nonetheless,DOES have substantial merit.
"The Line,The Cross,and the Curve" delves into the archetypical and down into the roots of human life itself.
Something like an ordinary Everyman (or,in this case,an Everywoman) drawn into extraordinary situations. That's the kind of storytelling genius that the late Alfred Hitchcock used to use.
From being plucked from her musician life into a nightmarish purgatory and then being rescued by the forces of nature and good.....this is part of the adventure.
My favorite part of the film is when Kate's character is chasing the evil witch-character....a chase through all Eternity but Good triumphs over Evil. And Evil is put back in its place where it belongs.
Really a shame,that this film was not released theatrically in more places. Because, it needs to be seen on the big screen for full effect.
Mayor of the Sunset Strip (2003)
As a co-star in this movie I am duty-bound to make a correction, namely, that RODNEY was NOT dropped off at Connie Stevens' house by his mother. This was a fabrication introduced by the director, and voiced by Kim Fowley.
I agree with several people: the movie should be re-cut (it's possible, because the raw footage is still in storage) and the crap (the too- "dark" stuff) removed...and made much longer. So much was never seen...
and this was supposed to be a pro-RODNEY movie (and not an anti-Kim Fowley picture). It could have been a GREAT documentary instead of just a GOOD one...
Trivia: Originally, this movie was supposed to have been offered via Paramount Pictures. What would have happened IF it had, one wonders?
