This weekend brings a pair of documentaries about strange forms of notoriety to the Carlton Cinema in Toronto: Slaughter Nick for President and Skull World. Both films are hilarious and inspiring looks at people who love what they do and deeply appreciate the efforts of those around them. One of them just happens to be a down on his luck actor who finds out that a character he played on a crappy TV show has become a folk hero overseas, and the other is a Clutch loving metalhead who uses his creative side to create all out cardboard carnage.
We talk to Canadian actor, documentarian, and unlikely celebrity (in Serbia, anyway) Rob Stewart about his autobiographical Slaughter Nick for President. He talks about what it was like to be welcomed as folk hero to many people who had nothing for playing a character on a show he never liked doing that much to begin with, and how he would never, ever take that love for granted.
Just in time for the beautiful spring weather, we've got a contest that will definitely get you in the mood for the season - or at least get you out of the house! We're giving away five pairs of run of engagement passes to the upcoming Canadian film Molly Maxwell, running exclusively in Toronto from Friday, April 19th - 25th at The Carlton! One lucky winner will also receive a musical prize pack featuring albums from artists featured in the film!
As an environmental advocacy documentary, Rob Stewart's Revolution is pretty standard and simplistic, but it comes with a layer of personal emotion that's rare for this kind of material.
