The borderline crazy world of the Kuchars
This was an interesting introduction to the films of the Kuchar twins to me. I think I would be a bit squeamish to see all of their product but I hope to catch up on some of their underground movies. I like the excerpts from the 'Weather Diaries' films which promise some really atmospheric thunderstorm sequences. Their movies seem to have been made on the hoof and concocted as the film progresses. Although the plot of the film doesn't seem to be of importance to the Kuchars there seems to be a lot going on in their movies. There are some grotesque characters like those played by Linda Martinez. She's a 70 year old cougar who usually doesn't have any underwear on. Also there some films about Bigfoot and UFOs which I would be pleased to track down. As well as Linda Martinez there seems to be a lot of inelegant female characters especially those with Joan Crawford thick eyebrows which have been exaggerated by make-up. There are plenty of funny anecdotes and a few tips on film-making. I like that the Kuchars didn't resort to any real bad language but there is just one F-bomb from Divine in a clip from a John Waters' movie.
