Tue 12/29 DeliMovie – ‘Ravenous’

Robert Carlyle (Trainspotting) and Guy Pearce (Memento) star in this horror-comedy set in the frontier of the Wild West. At a sparsely occupied outpost, just before the onset of another harsh winter, the lone survivor of an expedition is brought in from the cold. The terrified traveler brings tales of starvation, madness and cannibalism: could it be that the indigenous demonic creature called Wendigo is involved? A hilarious and unsettling film with remarkable performances, Ravenous is a juicy film in the “Meat-is-Murder” genre, accompanied by a rib-sticking stew

Wed 01/06 DeliMovie – ‘BUKOWSKI- BORN INTO THIS’

Directed by John Dullaghan

134 minutes

In English

Director John Dullaghan's definitive biographical documentary about the infamous poet and underground cult icon Charles Bukowski is as much a touching portrait of the author as it is an exposé of his sordid lifestyle. Interspersed between ample vintage footage of Bukowski's poetry readings are interviews with the poet's fans including such legendary figures as Harry Dean Stanton, Sean Penn and Tom Waits. This is not a film only for Bukowski fans, but it is also a great documentary in itself...a portrait about a unique human being with fascinating views on life.

Much of the material is filmed in grainy black and white by Bukowski's friend, Taylor Hackford, and paints Bukowski as having a life of boozing and brawling romantically. Born Into This relies on interviews with Bukowski for biographical information instead of cheesy voiceovers, bringing the viewer even closer to the author. It took the director seven years to make this film about Bukowski. the  real-life model for the films BARFLY and FACTOTUM.

Occasionally the film displays lines of Bukowski's poetry on the screen, as reminders that he was not only a raging alcoholic with a cutting sense of humor, but also a talented writer with a fierce tenderness. Great film about a great artist.

First tries and comebacks

The title “I’ve Never Done This Before“ explains what it’s about. I want to invite people to come and do something they’ve never done before or something they used to do and stopped for some reason.

Performance art  poetry  music  a reading  anything, anything, ANYTHING!

And so you know, I will be debuting a musical suite which has poetry, rap and a little dance in there. So what do you say? Hit me with your ideas!

And here’s why I’m doing it and what I’m hoping for:

We label ourselves too easily - I am a painter, I am a musician, I am a chef, I am a teacher - and this bothers me. It is bad for art, and it is bad for life - because we middle-of-the-road it, we coast...we know what we're doing and how to do it and this is BAD.

The best things are when you're unsure - when you have that delicious uncertainty about what something is, about whether or not to do it. To quote my younger self: NO RISK NO ART

I want to create a night where people can give it a go ? see what happens - before a supportive, happy, interested audience.

"I've often wondered why people who could look at incredible new art and laugh at it bothered to involve themselves with art at all. And yet you'd run into so many of these types around the art scene," said Andy Warhol of the early days of Pop when he and his peers were ridiculed.

Smart people, who really love art and who understand what it is to create art - they're not worried if something fails, if it doesn't work. What matters is AMBITION. Going for something new, challenging yourself - searching for the unknown...this is what matters!

I would love for you to be involved in what I hope will be a positive, inspiring and exciting night.
