How to Tap into Your Animalistic Filmmaking Instincts and Become a 'Bitch' [PODCAST]

Don't be scared to let the dogs out. I saw a lot of movies in the Midnight Section at Sundance this year. There were a lot of weird movies. Bitch, however, is a batshit insane movie. In terms of understanding what we’re dealing with here, the premise really only gets you half the way there: an underappreciated mother finds out her jerk-off husband is cheating on her and as a result, well, she turns into a dog. The real insanity, however, comes across in a near constant destruction of genre conventions. Is it a horror? Is it a comedy? Is it a relationship drama? At times it’s all of these things all together, at times it is very clearly just one. Marianna Palka wrote the script in just two days, which aside from being a remarkable achievement, is a testament to the free-wheeling nature of the film itself. She also directs and stars in the film. At Sundance, I was joined by Emily Buder, Palka, and actor/musician Zack Clark to discuss Palka’s unrivaled writing technique and the benefits of being a multi-hyphenate. If you're in New York you can check out Bitch at BAM CinemaFest this week. Read More...
