DECONSTRUCTING "IN SEARCH OF A MIDNIGHT KISS"
In search of the midnight kiss is so far, my favorite guerrilla film of the year, and it is definitely in my top 5 of 2008. It is also one of the few films I've seen that expose male and female points of view, in a very truthful, believable and funny manner. The photography is beautiful, the actors are stellar in their roles and the direction is superb, their budget was $25,000 but I could say that it was 2 millions and you wouldn't feel the difference.
Joe Utichi from Rotten Tomatoes prepared a great interview that came to us via Josh Horrow, thank you very much Josh this is great material.
A little excerpt from Alex Holdridge, director of the film:
"When I read the first review I cried. My last two films have had attention but they never got a chance to survive outside of the festival world and so I knew how critical it was that it was well received. It is the type of film that needs to be championed by critics because otherwise it will never see the light of day. Distributors won't take the time to take a chance on a black and white movie without name recognition in it. I was scared shitless that I was going to have to go back and wait tables again, which I've had to do after every movie. After the last one the paper even did a write-up on "Alex Holdridge will not have to take out the trash anymore," but sure enough, two days later I'm back waiting tables, you know. The manager of the restaurant even put it up on the wall out back so I'd walk past it every time I was taking out the trash".
