"By, For, and About George Kuchar" celebrates the beloved, rascally filmmaker
It'll end in puke, of course, but anyone with a hungry eye should welcome the Roxie's decision to put three nights of movies by George Kuchar on its menu. Or a hungry heart: the cheerful gastric onslaughts of Kuchar's Frankenstein cycle are countered by the disarmingly poignant mortal attention to digestion and bodily function in his recent diary films, Vintage Visits, The Nutrient Express, and Dribbles, all from 2010. The time is right to gorge with George.
