GREEN STREET HOOLIGANS

10005111

GO SEE THIS MOVIE This movie was the best I have seen all year. It follows a Harvard 'Yank-Journo' (Elijah Wood) as he slowly declines into the seedy underbelly of a London Football firm....and then tons of dudes fight alot! It's a really great story...the kind you have already seen but done in a new way. The characters feel real and are lovable even when they are thrwong bricks at rival firms and smashing people's faces. The film's director (LEXI ALEXANDER) was at the screening and did a Q and A following the credits. Although 'GREEN STREET HOOLIGANS' has won many major festivals, the film could not find distribution so the production company that made the film SELF DISTRIBUTED. It's basically surviving on word of mouth....SO GO SEE IT.
The GERMAN director was asked a few bullshit questions last night too which she responded ever so eloquantly:

ASSHOLE WANA BE HOLLYWOOD PRODUCER- "Lexi, Don't you think it was irresponsible to make a film which could not be easily mass distributed to any Joe Schmo and his five kids in Ohio. Maybe you should have created a franchise movie with loveable and huggable characters that could easily fit into the studio formula for success. "
LEXI DIRECTOR OF GSH-
"FUCK OFF"

The above was not a normal wewilleatyou exaggeration.

Basically their were a bunch of dudes in the audience who were pissed off that a woman made a fucking great movie. She held her own in the Q AND A and already had my respect for her direction in the movie.
GO SEE IT...SUPPORT INDEPENDENT FILMMAKING!
