Larry Clark's 'Marfa Girl' Released Online
Larry Clark's feature film Marfa Girl is now available to stream exclusively on the director's own site. For $5.99, you get access to stream the film over a period of 24 hours.
Clark has said, "I wanted to make a movie for the Internet. These days everyone one is on it — emails, social networks and all that. I have kids and they are constantly connected to it. I send them a message and they get back to me straight away. It’s so hard to get a film made, especially an art film with your own final cut. So I thought, “Why don’t I just do it myself, set up a website and get it going.” I decided to get rid of the middlemen, producers and the like. Anyway, they’re all crooks; I never got paid for my movies. The Internet is happening, people make a video and it gets a million hits, so f*** it, let’s do it." (via SlashFilm)
