George Kuchar



On the occasion of George Kuchar: Always & Forever, a 2010 exhibition of film, video, stills, drawings, paintings, and comics from the 60s to today at Mulherin Pollard Gallery in New York, Will Corwin dialed up the artist and had a freewheeling phonecall covering facts and stories from his career. George Kuchar and his twin brother Mike began making films in the Bronx and established themselves as working-class eccentrics with untrained actors and high-camp, gory, sexy, low budget brilliance. Filmmakers such as John Waters, Todd Solondz, and Martin Scorscese consider Kuchar a major influence on their work. As always, Will asks nit-picking questions about how the movies got made, with a few philosophical ones thrown in. Kuchar is a fabulous storyteller; his responses are off-beat and bizarrely literal at times.(29 minutes)
