THE MOST DESERVED TRIBUTE OF ALL TIME Image

If any young up and coming filmmaker deserves a tribute, it’s certainly Steve Balderson. Even Balderson’s goofy B-movie Pep Squad is so beautifully done that it’s like watching a new Kubrick film that just happened to have been written by John Waters. Brilliant.

I reccomend that anyone in the area go. Firecracker got a rave review from Roger Ebert and made #4 in Film Threat’s “Indies To Look Out For In 2005” Read my review here. Also playing at the tribute will be Wamego: Making Movies Anywhere which got an excellent review from our own Eric Campos and Wamego Strikes Back which again got a rave review from me. If you’re beginning to see a pattern of “WOW!” type reviews, then you’re starting to get what I’m driving at. Film geeks always look at the state of today’s cinema and ask “Who’s gonna replace the Lynch’s and Cronenberg’s and Coens’ when they’re gone? Who’s going to be the next great auteur?”

I’m giving you all one guess at who I think it is…
