Secret Stash: Michael D. Cohen

Welcome to Secret Stash, our series of conversations with filmmakers, actors, and critics about their favorite films that didn’t get the recognition or find the audience they deserved because they were too weird, too hard to find, or (of course) too indie. In this installment of Secret Stash, actor Michael D. Cohen shares with us Read More

Way Too Indie on ‘Company Man: The Films of Robert Altman’

Most directors would probably kill to have a career like Robert Altman’s. With a career spanning more than 4 decades, Altman proved himself to be one of the busiest, most creative and versatile directors in American history. He started out in the 50s working as a director for television, until his frustration over a lack Read More

Sequels and Remakes That Prove Things Were Better When We Were Kids

Maybe our age is showing, but more and more we find ourselves remarking about how good things were “back in the day.” Especially when it comes to the many knock-offs, sequels, and remakes constantly pouring out of Hollywood. Since the Michael Bay produced, (awful-looking) rendition of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hits theaters this Friday, we figured now Read More

The Mainstream: June Recap & July Preview

We may seem like reclusive budget-shirking obscure film enthusiasts over here at Way Too Indie, and well, some of us are, but we’re not living in any dark holes and far be it from of us to say that a film that had a little money behind it isn’t worth our notice. So here we Read More

A Hard Day’s Night Get’s the Criterion 50th Anniversary Restoration It Deserves

When it was released in 1964, Time magazine called A Hard Day’s Night “One of the smoothest, freshest, funniest films ever made for purposes of exploitation.” It’s hard to find a modern cultural equivalent.
