Soft Focus: Ian Svenonius interviews indie rock stars (Will Oldham, Chan Marshall, Henry Rollins, etc.)

Here's the intro to the show, put together by VBS.TV:

" On the VBS original series Soft Focus, Ian Svenonius interviews musicians whom we revere and admire. For our premiere episode, we’re pleased to present a conversation between Ian and Will Oldham, a.k.a. Bonnie Prince Billy. Coming up this season are visitations from Ian Mackaye, Chan Marshall (a.k.a. Cat Power), Henry Rollins, Genesis P. Orridge, Andrew WK, and more.

Soft Focus is shot on location at the venerable Guggenheim Museum in New York City.

Ian Svenonius is not only a lyricist and performer of unparalleled depth and intensity (in bands such as the Nation of Ulysses, Cupid Car Club, Make-Up, and Weird War), but also a secret custodian of rock lore and a theorizer of cultural connections that the rest of us, blind in comparison, tend to miss. For supporting evidence, see his recently released book The Psychic Soviet. He lives, like many of America’s national treasures, in Washington DC."

The Meyerowitz Stories is very good

Note - I saw the movie before the Dustin Hoffman sex assault allegations story broke.  Not sure what kind of an experience I would have had watching the movie had I knew about the allegations.

Great movie, well written, well acted.  An interesting NYC experience.

Check out the movie at Netflix -
