The only thing better than assaulting someone over chicken nuggets in a drunken state of rage, is to assault someone over chicken nuggets in a drunken state of rage with the right soundtrack.

We hypothesize that this woman is simply a futurist sound-scape artist who felt her work would read strongest from the deaf cyclopsian eye of a security camera. we salute her by watching this bastardization of her vibrant kinetic art.

Gratuitous Art Films Presents:

EMERGENCY ROOM, a tale of life, death and indecision.

A spellbinding nightmare of love, loss and comas.

A story of hope, compassion and the breaking point of a man’s dignity.

Yes, it has been a full day.

“The enfant terrible of Italian stage and screen, actor-director-writer Carmelo Bene, who has died aged 64, shared the distinction with Dario Fo of being a theatrical artist who also became a literary phenomenon. Though most of his writings were for the theatre and cinema, he also published several novels and two autobiographies – one in 1983 entitled, somewhat brazenly, Sono Apparso Alla Madonna (I Appeared To The Madonna).

Eccentric and gifted, Bene was undoubtedly the greatest guitto (barnstormer) of the contemporary Italian stage – a term that he relished. He succeeded in parodying the Italian histrionic acting tradition, as well as being its apotheosis. In the theatre his model was Artaud’s Theatre of Cruelty, while the moderns he respected most in literature and painting were Joyce and Francis Bacon. In the cinema he had little sympathy for film-making after Buster Keaton and Eisenstein, though he once confessed to liking Godard’s Pierrot Le Fou.”read more of his obituary
