  1. One of several Columbinesploitation titles, even though IIRC it predated that. Others include American Yearbook which has despite festival love never gotten a proper release. Stars Von Scott Bair, star of the absolutely terrible Last Kennedy, a film with the strangest acting style, like people being interviewed for vox-pops.

  2. Reminded me of this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OnGod5XgD6U American Yearbook, an unreleased Columbinesploitation with Vonn Scott Bair, who was in the awful film the Last Kennedy which has a weird acting style, like voxpops. Released by the Dutch BBC DVD afffiliate Memphis Belle DVD in the Benelux regions.

  3. While Cecil B Demented has the best characters of any John Waters film, I think Desperate Living is a better film overall. The plot is more intricate, the sets and dialog are more polished, the acting is better, and I feel like it realized its concept in a better way.
