Marfa or Bust
Back in V77, we caught up with film maker Larry Clark as he was shooting a movie in Texas. Now you can watch Marfa Girl, winner of Best Film at the Rome Film Festival, today at larryclark.com/marfagirl. Who needs Hollywood when you have the internet?
Says Clark on his website, "I will put the film on my first and only website, larryclark.com, which is the only place one will ever be able to see the film… It will stream for $5.99 for access to the film for 24 hours… This is the future and the future is now… Most and very soon almost all the small theaters that show Indie and Art films will be gone... Everyday another goes out of business because everything is digital now and it is quite expensive for the wonderful old smaller theaters to bear the cost of switching to digital… Anyway I think I am one of the very first directors to release a new film this way, on a website who’s only purpose is to show his new films… I think this could be very successful and it also cuts out the crooked Hollywood distributors."
Here are some of the photos from Clark you've never seen (and some you have).
