 Austin Lugar Reviews Miranda July's "The First Bad Man"

Miranda July made a big debut with her incredible film Me and You and Everyone We Know. It was a strange and personal tale of human connection that was rewarded with a major award from the Cannes film festival and critical adoration. Her success continued with a great follow-up film (The Future), a short story collection and a unique social network app where your message will be delivered orally by a stranger.

 An Interview with Sydney Freeland - "Drunktown's Finest"

It was two decades ago that "Drunktown's Finest" writer/director Sydney Freeland's hometown of Gallup, New Mexico was tagged with the label "Drunktown, USA" by a national news program. The Heartland Film Festival Award-winning filmmaker was a mere elementary school student at the time, though Freeland, raised on the reservation, recalls finding it strange that journalists from all over had descended upon her town essentially pointing cameras at its local winos. After a successful festival run over the past year, including a big win at Indy's Heartland Film Festival, "Drunktown's Finest" opened in New York City at the Quad Cinema this past weekend. Freeland took some time to chat with The Independent Critic about her film.
