BUSTER - a feature shot on super 8

Just checked out the trailer & read about a feature called Buster - looks interesting, & it was shot on super 8 - something not usually done by indie feature filmmakers these days. Buster will be screening at the Atlanta Film Festival on 4/18 & 4/21.

About Buster, from ATLFF site:

"Buster is the story of a guy that anyone in his right mind would run away from, since Buster spends all his spare time provoking strangers into fights, then refusing to defend himself as they pummel him until they grow bored. The only one close to him is his brother Scott, who himself is trying to get his life together. Buster tries in vain to keep Scott next to him in his care free land of non-tax-paying-abusers, knowing he'll loose him sooner or later to Scott's much prettier and determined girlfriend Jesse. Buster can only beat her at fucking up and does so in a way that's very hard for Scott to ignore. Shot on Super 8, Buster is a film that is as scrappy as its protagonist. Whereas most independent film is moving towards sharper and crisper digital images, the use of an almost forgotten technology is refreshing and entirely appropriate for the story of a character whose mind and psyche is as scratched and grainy as the film it is shot on."

See trailer here.

The film is also available on DVD directly from its site - go here for that.

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.
