Cinema Style: American Movie
Chris Smith’s award winning documentary, American Movie follows the struggle and process of Milwaukee based filmmaker Mark Borchardt as he tries to complete his horror film, Coven. This documentary is so legit don’t even begin to get us started- but one of it’s key elements is the setting. The blue collar, Americana, heavy metal look of the film is not the Brooklyn simulacrum, but rather the genuine article. This of course means that the protaganist Mark, and his buddy Mike look so rad it’s overwhelming. Click to see images.
