August 2006

I’ve always wanted to share a stage with Harmony Korine… anyway, check them out, or check them out from my blog, same thing.



Without much delay & with no apology, more from Brian Kim Stefans. This is ‘early’ work from 2004 & Barney quite clearly has an experimental stamp to it -Stefans describes it as at least in part an homage to Alvin Lucier’s great sound piece “I am Sitting in a Room”. Popahna in my view is something altogether more substantial – there’s so much of interest happening here, both performance wise & in directorial terms. OK, it walks the occasional fine line but in sum it’s haunting & utterly compelling. Stefans contrives to give it an immensely powerful narrative forward drive whilst still remaining nuanced, dreamlike & deeply odd. Feels like a feature film that has been shrunk to 11 minutes by a wicked fairy. Great stuff.    Send article as PDF

But fear not: there are hipsters galore in this town–I spotted a few members of the shaggy set just yesterday–but a whole lot more!
