IndieWire’s Top 10 Undistributed Films – UPDATE

Following up on an earlier posting, make that Top 8 Undistributed films: Deals were announced today by Roadside Attractions/Netflix and IFC Films for The Puffy Chair and I Am A Sex Addict, respectively.

Thoughts:

– I’ve not seen The Puffy Chair, but the Roadside/Netflix deal sounds interesting. Scott Kirsner at CinemaTech wrote about it yesterday.

– Caveh Zahedi’s I Am A Sex Addict, which I’ve been lucky enough to see, is brilliant and daring moviemaking. Caveh and I just completed a brief interview, which I’ll post around the time of his film’s release (April or May, from what I hear). Congrats, Caveh.

– Kudos again to indieWIRE for drawing attention to these films. You never know if something like their “Top 10 Undistributed Films” surveys actually help distributors make their decisions, but it’s safe to say it didn’t hurt.

    I am just waiting to hear that Mutual Appreciation got picked up. That I think will be the next flick from IndieWIRE’s top 10 Undistro’d flicks ’05 that will get picked up (MA was on that list right? I would go & check right now but I’ll lost what I typed, so here’s hoping I was correct). Check it out if you haven’t. Bujalski’s site for the film is selling it for $15 on DVD.

    Also another interesting film that is currently in the festival-submission stage is The Proper Care & Feeding of an American Messiah. U need a little bit of patience w/it in Act I, but the story picks up in Act II & in Act III your patience will be rewarded.

    Mutual Appreciation was mentioned in the article, but technically not on the list. It is going to get a small release. (I put in an order for the DVD about a week ago.) Thanks for the post.
