Film Day, 01.28.14
From The Passenger

Here’s a little short and sweet. The link here is to a cut-down version of a film produced by Lawrence Carota through the NFB (National Film Board of Canada). It speaks to many of the issues under discussion here. It’s not easy to digest but it is right on the money:

Crude Sacrifice

I keep looking for indie films that shed a good light on the tar pit. Something produced by someone other that CAPP (Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers) or the Big Oil companies directly. So far it’s been very hard to find anything from independent sources. And the stuff produced by CAPP and Big Oil reminds me too much of the crap the tobacco industry spin machine flooded onto the marketplace when they were trying to convince us that smoking was a good thing.

Crude Sacrifice is the title of the film.

UPDATE: Matt Palmer writes:

Pay Dirt

“I directed what many people feel is the most balanced film done on the oil sands, It was done in 2005 and aired on CBC in 2006.”

 

Anyone got more of this stuff?

Random Quote

Neil: These days it\'s all about closure of this and that for me. I have too many things to finish. How can I move on until I clean that slate? My film Human Highway [made in 1982] is one of those things. It should be available to the public. Dean Stockwell and Russell Tamblyn, my old friends from Topanga Canyon, and Dennis Hopper, a good old friend, were in this movie with me, and we wrote the dialogue as we went along. It is the dorkiest damn movie ever, and it walks a very fine line right on the edge of being too dorky. Some may say it falls over that line. The film was never put to rest to my satisfaction. When I finish something, I want it to be right, or as right as it can be.
