Visionary director E. Elias Merhige joins me to discuss his best known films BEGOTTEN and SHADOW OF THE VAMPIRE, his new picture POLIA AND BLASTEMA, working with Marilyn Manson, growing up in beautiful, grimy 1970s New York City, how illness and surgical procedures can inform art, and much more. It is a fascinating, in-depth conversation with one of my favorite people on earth, and one of the most unique voices in contemporary cinema. Plus there is some great news for fans of BEGOTTEN.
Intro segment is a little bit of information about me.
