Movie Meltdown: The Zen of Harry Dean Stanton Fest
Movie Meltdown – The Zen of Harry Dean Stanton Fest
Join us for a wrap-up of this year’s Harry Dean Stanton Fest – featuring a discussion with biographer Susan Compo.
And while we remember our favorite moments with Sean Young, we also mention… Warren Oates, Young Doctors in Love, watching movies in a cemetery, where did I get that voice, The Man Who Fell to Earth, laughing uproariously, changing seats while the vehicle was in motion, Hector Elizondo, front page of the LA Times, Frederic Forrest, F. Scott Fitzgerald, heading out to Joshua Tree to look for UFOs, a Corey art house movie, Sam Shepard, One from the Heart, this veneer of not caring, it was so designed to fail in a way that I find really fun, I was in my little childhood room with my rotary dial, Nicolas Roeg, Dream a Little Dream, a football field size open space, David Bowie, The Fourth War, Peter Fonda, roadtrips and mushrooms and Harry Dean Stanton’s scene in Apocalypse Now.
“Things go pretty seamlessly with Harry Dean Fest… and I’ve always said, that’s just because of the magic and the energy that surrounded Harry.”
