Fantastic Fest

Saturday, September 22, 2007


Zack and Lars have already talked about the awesomeness that is MIRAGEMAN, but let me reiterate: I don't care who shows up for the Secret Screenings. Even if Harry has somehow managed to get his hands on experimental genetically modifying technology and created a one man conglomeration of Steven Spielberg, George Romero, Lucio Fulci, Quentin Tarantino, and Sergio Leone into a new sentient being known only as THE DIRECTOR who has secretly made a movie called INDIANA STAR WARS ZOMBIE, it won't matter. MIRAGEMAN will still be the film you remember. Take that, THE DIRECTOR! If you missed the first screening, see the encore. Do it!

Anyway, this is all a lead up to my vlog entry where Marc Savlov and I talked to Ernesto Díaz Espinoza and Marko Zaror, the director and star of MIRAGEMAN, on Friday night in front of the dancing fire machine. I hadn't seen the movie at this point, but Savlov had loved it, so I invited him to come on camera to help get this conversation about influences and high kicks going. Meet the Miragemen:

As usual, thanks to Super!Alright! for helping on the filming on this one, and be sure to check out the Dell Lounge later on for a more complete version of this interview along with dozens of other Fantastic Fest recaps.
