2. JONATHAN CULP PRESENTS
LES ROSE'S "GAS" (1981)
AT TRASH PALACE
FRIDAY, JANUARY 9
DOORS 8:30 - FILM 9:30
We continue our infiltration of the most excellent Trash Palace with a movie that will haunt you long after the lights come up - the Canadian Tax Shelter monstrosity "Gas"!
What do I have to tell you to make you believe that this movie is a masterpiece? That it's the first film ever to feature Howie Mandel, and he's second-billed ? What more do you need ? How about Dan Aykroyd's brother Pete? Or the worst Donald Sutherland role of all time, as a disc jockey named Nick the Noz ? Perhaps you'll take a plot involving a gas shortage brought on by stolen milk ? Can I sell you on an array of gross racial stereotypes with names like GuidoVespucci, Lee Kwan and Fawsi Ibn Fawsi ? Would you believe a HALF HOUR car chase ? With cardboard English street signs taped on to the Montreal originals ??
>From the director of "Hog Wild"?!?!
Aww, some people are never satisfied. Well maybe I can win you over with some glowing reviews from imdb...let's see now... "A movie to forget!" "If you want bad, this is your movie!" "Sloppy, idiotic, severely witless and desperate!" "I still kick myself for the night I visited the multiplex and chose this thing over "Arthur!"" "This incoherent waste of someone's ability to raise funds!" "I found myself actually looking FORWARD to the commercials!" "To be avoided, this movie bites!" "Everyone who appeared in this one is a bad, bad person!" "Worst film of all time, bar none!"
In other words, my friends: this movie was MADE for Trash Palace! Be there.
Advance tix $5 at Tequila Bookworm, 512 Queen West!
The Trash Palace address is printed on the ticket, along with a handy map on how to get here! (It's a short walk from the ticket location...)
'Cold drinks,' hot dogs, popped corn, candy, merch...and Boardwalk Chocolates, Siue Moffat's brand new vegan fair trade organic orgy of yumminess!

AT THE 8 FEST
FRIDAY, JANUARY 30, 9 PM
AT TRASH PALACE (see above)
Red Shift (2009, 40 minutes)
Super 8 collage
with live accompaniment by Picastro (Liz Hysen, Nick Storring, Brandon Valdivia)
In this long piece commissioned specially for this year’s 8 Fest, filmmaker Jonathan Culp creates a hypnotic, rhythmic collage of commercially produced Super 8 material. Cutting between faded Eastman color industrial films,classroom-film curios, and Hollywood imagery old and new, the pictures interlock with the haunting semi-acoustic dissonances of local band Picastro, performing live with the film. Red Shift is a slowly disintegrating nightmare of utilitarian media gone wrong.
Presented as part of THE 8 FEST (January 30-February 2) Now in its second year, this is Canada's only film festival dedicated to exhibiting work on small gauge film. It's a lot of fun. Find out more atwww.the8fest.com, or join the soon-to-be-resuscitated Facebook group at:
