    Print this page

    Last year I watched a documentary entitled Beautiful Losers

    . It is a fantastic film focusing on artists, musicians, and filmmakers in the 1990s who were part of a D.I.Y. Revolution. You may recognize the work of Shepard Fairey, renowned for his Andre the Giant sticker campaign, and more recently created the iconic blue and red Obama “HOPE” poster. Mike Mills was involved in the skateboarding scene and went on to create films like


    and the astounding


    . One of my favorite filmmakers, Harmony Korine, has an incredibly unique mind, having created immensely disturbing, yet bizarrely beautiful, films such as

    Gummo, Julien Donkey-Boy,


    Trash Humpers

    . (Very excited to see his new film,

    Spring Breakers

    this year.)

    Art is inspiring, as are those who create it. Rebellion is also inspiring, and when the two are combined, we are often treated to something amazing. Another documentary which explores this idea is

    Let Fury Have the Hour

    , which premiered at last year's Tribeca Film Festival and was declared one of the best to be screened. It tells the story of art and rebellion in the 1980s, when Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher headed the two major world powers. It features 50 artists, such as Eve Ensler, Tom Morello, Shepard Fairey, Lewis Black, Chuck D, and so on and so on.

    The Louisville Film Society presents several screenings of

    Let Fury Have the Hour

    at the Dreamland Film Center tonight, Thursday, and tomorrow, Friday, at 7:00 and 9:00. Admission is $5 for LFS members and $8 for LFS members. The Dreamland Film Center is located at 810 E. Market Street. Complete information can be found at the Louisville Film Society website.

    About Allan Day

    There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
