TRIP TO NYC...MOVIES MOVIES MOVIES (Gonzo, Baghead, Man On Wire)


It was great to see all of you in NYC and I was finally allowed to play some catch up on some films I NEEDED to see. I was already able to catch In Search Of A Midnight Kiss, Tell No One and Kabluey at film festivals and American Teen or The Wackness I will see next week when it hits theaters at home.
So, 3 movies in 3 days? Which ones would you see? I HAD to go to Landmark Sunshine, Angelika and I guess I will head to the Lincoln Center, so I did.
If you have been reading the blog, then you know I had to go to Landmark and see Baghead. Vanessa and I could be the press packet for the Duplass Brothers. I am VERY proud of the Duplass’ and Baghead is amazing, for what it is. It's wildly funny to see them poke fun at a genre in film festivals that they may have created. Congrats guys!
Then off to head RIGHT down the street on Houston, the Angelika to meet with my friends Chuck and Ellen. What’s great is Chuck lives right down the street from me here in Florida, and I see one film in New York, one more I had seen with him in Orlando all year. Weird. Gonzo is a must! This documentary on Hunter S. Thompson, told mostly by well, the man himself…Hunter S. Thompson (from amazing older stock footage). Dives deep and very very thought provoking.
Then, next day, Lincoln Center to see Man On Wire…YES! Pretty incredible. One man, one wire, equals Twin Towers. Nail biting in every minute, and the outcome extremely satisfying. This will be around in cities near you, for sure. Take the family.

Well, three movies is catch up? What? I know…it’s a midnight snack for me, but at least I was able to get some cool air from the NYC heat. To be honest…I HAD to catch Liverpool destroy Rangers Saturday morning, so the double feature was off. Amazing times in NYC, and thanks to everyone for taking good care of BYS.
See you in Sept.
