I can't wait.  I think that it is his best work and possibly another length of it might make it on my top 100.

The Good Time Girls

I don't know where this came from and assume it's a 15 minute promo to raise the money for a feature, which apparently they did because it's in pre-production.

The short is a Western starring Laura Dern, Garret Dillahunt and Alia Shawkat. It's written and directed by Costume Designer Courtney Hoffman (Baby Driver, Captain Fantastic, The Hateful Eight). Though it's very straightforward, I don't quite know what to make of it. It's sexually very graphic, though there's no actual nudity and it's NSFW from every angle, but there's something compelling about it considering the talent involved.

If Bondo doesn't report back within the next couple of days it's because he doesn't look in this thread.

Way back in 1989 The Beastie Boys released 'Licenced to Ill' and the track 'Fight For Your Right'. Well 22 years later they released a short film Fight For Your Right - Revisited. It is a fun little film, with a very very impressive cast. Enjoy.

In case you had forgotten the original song: Fight For Your Right

This was the correct take. Will get to it today.

The Good Time Girls

Really the perfect way to kick 2018 off, a good old-fashioned smashing of the patriarchy. It is a simple enough plot, being a short film of about ten minutes not counting credits. Women who have been traumatized by male privilege wild west outlaws hatch a revenge plot, naturally exploiting their one historic power, sex. Good recommendation 1SO

The Good Time Girls

Better than the entire first episode of Godless.
