"If there's a film this year... that's as subversive as it is visionary, in terms of both content and form, it's Punch-Drunk Love."

With a TV director as a father and a silent film legend as a neighbor, perhaps it was inevitable that Alan Rudolph would end up behind a camera. But with a 70s maverick as a mentor and collaborator, he might have been just as destined to steer clear of the straight Hollywood line. Rudolph talks to Craig Phillips and Jonathan Marlow about his SFIFF opener, The Secret Lives of Dentists, and about confounding audiences with emotional truths.  Full Article >>
