Material for procrastination

January 31, 2010

This article from the NY Times, about the video artist/film director Steve McQueen, is well worth five minutes of your precious time. McQueen’s 2008 directorial debut, “Hunger,” is excellent, though it’s also decidedly raw and thoroughly (and necessarily) unpleasant; in fact, you might recall that I included it on my “favorite 50 films of the 00s” list a few weeks back. The Criterion Collection is releasing what promises to be a very nice DVD of “Hunger” on February 16th, so I highly recommend checking that out once it drops.
