My cat can eat a whole watermelon!
On October 22nd, Crispin Glover will present a midnight showing of his absolutely wonderful independant film RUBIN AND ED. For those of you who have never seen this movie, fear not — it actually wasn’t very widely distributed. It’s even more notorious because of Mr. Glover’s appearance on David Letterman on the press junket for this film.
RUBIN AND ED tells the story of a retro-seventies oddball who is trying to find a place to bury his cat (while coping with his death) in the desert with Howard Hesseman (Dr. Johnnie Fever from WKRP IN CINNCINATI) as an unsuccessful pyramid scheme salesman being dragged around on Crispin’s bell-bottomed vision quest. It’s about as weird as Crispin Glover on acid can get, along with the best explanation of Andy Warhol’s career as I’ve ever heard.
Go see this at the Castro later this month. I just want to warn you all early about this — there aren’t many chances to see a 35mm print of the embodiment of independant film on the Castro’s screen with George McFly introducing it.
Actually, this is in conjunction with Crispin’s newest film, ‘WHAT IS IT?’. I’ll let you research this one yourself, I don’t want to start a flame war here.
