Since the day the movie’s come out, I’ve been writing this overbearing, endlessly emphatic megapost about how Inglourious Basterds is like the most exciting and personally significant new movie I’ve seen in five years. But…I dunno - do you get the gist if I post just this?
Listen lil Levs in Hebrew school - when yr scared about the Holocaust you’re better off fantasizing about the Basterds than about the King of Denmark (or, Schindler, Tom Cruise, duh etc.) There’s more than one kind of fairy tale.
Picture that with 3 pages of windup and breakdown. Oh and this:
Very excited to finally announce the overwhelmingly nice details of next Friday, September 18th’s screening of “Blondes in the Jungle and Friends,“ a program named so because not only are all the contributors friends, but also because their videos and films are v friendly with the movie - in terms of thematics, looks, feelings, vibes, moments, moods, etc.
Info below, soon to be linked out.

I can’t even tell you how siked we are to have the Blondes festival premiere at the Chicago Underground Film Festival. I mean, just check this trailer!!
Here’s the flyer for the program we’re in. We made it so it emphasizes us, but seriously everybody in this program but us is a heavyweight video-artist or filmmaker in the best kinda way. Duh, but “Coconuts and Cocaine” is the show I’m most siked about at CUFF.
P.S. The CUFF website has a review section. If you’ve seen the film already and can post a line or two of thoughts, please do. Nobody out there has any idea what to expect!
