George Kuchar, RIP. Kuchar and his twin brother Michael practically invented the “camp” genre. He prided himself on making films with non-actors, script, or theme, for almost no money. The 8mm movies he made in the 60s were as important a part of the underground film scene as those made by by Andy Warhol, Kenneth Anger, and Stan Brakhage.
See for yourself, here’s his “masterpiece”, Hold Me While I’m Naked, a semi-autobiographical short about a pornographer. In the Village Voice’s Critics’ Poll of the 100 best films of the 20th century, it ranked 52nd.
