Getting Ahead of Henriksen: Behind the Boyhood of 'That Guy' Pictures

Orson Welles had The Other Side of The Wind. Terry Gilliam had The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, and independent filmmaker Michael Worth has Bring Me The Head of Lance Henriksen.

FIVE STAR FILMS: The Whole Bloody List ***UPDATED 2/05/2019***

From the earliest days of Graffiti with Punctuation co-founder Cam Williams and I were extremely passionate about celebrating the films universally considered to be the greatest films of all time. Cam’s idea for our ‘Five Star Film’ exploration initially followed the below mantra: “Welcome to five star films where we shine the spotlight on the greatest films of all time. People have been banging on about these films for years so rather than go over familiar ground we’ve picked the five reasons why they’re worthy of being labelled five star films.”

INSIDE THE NUTT HOUSE: STEVE KEARNEY’S TALES FROM TINSELTOWN

Australian actor-turned-producer Steve Kearney’s experience shooting his American feature film debut wasn’t what you could call ideal. Within three weeks of filming ‘The Nutt House’, the director was fired. By the time it was ready to be edited, all four of the film’s writers (Sam & Ivan Raimi, Bruce Campbell and Scott Spiegel) had disowned it. And the film’s ‘premiere’ at Cannes, well; it wasn’t how you’d hope a film premiere would go. Kearney spoke to Another Film Nerd about  ‘The Nutt House’, ‘Pistol Pete’ - the pilot he filmed with legendary ‘Simpsons’ writer John Swartzwelder - and the path that brought him back to Australia.
