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.
