... and it may be a good idea to have a woman's views/experiences on these films as it may attract some womens' interest (they do make up 50% of the population!, LOL). Phil.

And so what is Nicoletta Machiavelli? Chopped liver?  :D

You're right; it would've felt weird if we hadn't at least gotten one female -- especially for the segment about the genre's misogyny.

His Italian-financed and Italian-set crime movies:
Wow! I didn't realise MR.MEAN was an Italian production.

Cheers Mike :P

It's not, of course (although it was shot with an Italian crew and borrowed equipment from INGLORIOUS BASTARDS). That is the movie I was qualifying as "Italian-set," as it was shot in Rome.  :'(
I was telling Mike a few months ago that I think Mr. Mean kicks butt! Really entertaining movie. Im a big fan of Fred Williamson and Lou Castel and I was kind of suprised to see Lou in this, not his typical role. Fred is brought to Rome to ice Lou because the organization doesn't like the fact that Lou is using scams to generate money. But then Lou hires Raimund Harmstorf to take out the Hammer before he can get to Lou!

Anyway, I know Mike has worked hard on his doc and this thing is gonna be amazing when it's done. Hope things are going smooth for you Mike.

Very good; thanks for asking -- although switching to a new machine on which to do the offline edit has been a longer, more problematic process than I expected.

But I'm talking to someone(s) really cool about doing music for the doc.

And there is some amazing gold in the interviews themselves. I can't wait for you guys to see.

No, but that would be really cool, too. I like the way you think...

TBD, but ASAP. The offline edit is coming together beautifully but is occasionally hung up by a technical issue or two. Thanks for asking.

When this is all eventually done and dusted, I would pay for a DVD edition if it gathered up some of the excess or bonus interview footage that couldn't fit into the feature proper - and now that I think of it, I suspect other people would too.  This should be an awesome doco once done.

Thanks, Wanderin' Bogan!

No kidding about the excess footage; there is tons! I'm sure whoever ends up distribbing on DVD will see the potential in including extra sequences full of juicy stories for the fans.

Although we're in post and not actively seeking interviews, look what fell into our lap courtesy of Mike Martinez's attendance of Chiller this past weekend: an intvw with the great stuntman/actor Ottaviano Dell'Acqua! (ROME ARMED TO THE TEETH, WEAPONS OF DEATH, MERCILESS MAN, FROM CORLEONE TO BROOKLYN, etc etc etc -- and still working today...)

No, sir. And Martinez was especially thrilled to have dinner Saturday Night with Richard "BEYOND THE DOOR" Johnson!
