Beautiful Darling

I’m not a massive fan of Andy Warhol as an artist but am intrigued and fascinated with the people he surrounded himself with. Jackie Curtis, Holly Woodlawn and Mary Woronov are some of my favorites but my absolute favourites are the gorgeous Joe Dallesandro (he’s got a documentary too called Little Joe) and Candy Darling.

Showgirls [Blu-ray]

MJ Dixon Interview

Read the review for Slasher House here. Matt: Slasher House is an incredible achievement on a budget that could generously be described as “shoestring”. How the hell did you pull it off for such little cash? MJ Dixon: In all honesty it was written as a low budget Hollywood production, and I always thought they […]
