Wolf Like Me



by Steven Boone

Hippy dippy Woodstock director Michael Wadleigh made only one narrative feature film, the majestically weird horror fable Wolfen. Having not seen it since Late Late Show screenings in the 1980's, I remembered Wolfen, faintly, as that other, lesser, wolf flick of 1981.

Not until screening it recently with a horror afficionado pal did I come to understand it as a reeling peyote vision of New York City's Third World future, the one I'm staggering through presently. Damn. This video is my parting shot as I prepare to join a sad, strange exodus from the city that used to feel like home.

  2. I was wondering if you'd be interested in covering my work on your blog. I am a NO BUDGET UNDERGROUND FILMMAKER. Yeah, yeah, there's a billion of these, but just watch this trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-CO79YUAIcw and I think you'll see it's something worth covering. MAYBE. I figured I'd try to send one of my films your way to see if you want to watch.. it's called NO REASON TO EXIST, you can d/l it here: http://www.archive.org/download/NoReasonToExist_591/Part3-NoReasonToExistadamCooley2009.avi ... http://directoradamcooley.angelfire.com has more info ... not trying to spam, just trying to get interesting people interested. Hope you don't mind, feel free to delete this if you do mind, great blog either way. Get in touch with me (mradamcooley@hotmail.com) if you wanna chat, thanks... Take care.-ac
