Well. This happened. It’s been like a surreal dream…

criterion

The film I produced with an amazing team in 2012 narrated by the one and only, recently passed, Charles Manson, OLD MAN will be distributed by the infamous Criterion Channel’s FilmStruck. It will play before Dennis Hopper’s feature debut, Easy Rider. It is a rather perfect pairing.

1969 saw the release of Dennis Hopper’s Easy Rider and the media circus ignited by the Manson murders, two seismic cultural events that cast a shadow on the freewheeling good vibes of the hippie era. This program brings together two films that capture the spirit of that chaotic year. In the 2012 experimental documentary Old Man, Brooklyn-based artist Leah Shore combines eye-popping animation with never-before-heard phone calls that Charles Manson made from jail to the infamous cult leader and Canadian author Marlin Marlin M. Marynick. In his directorial debut, Hopper created one of the great American road movies, a counterculture sensation that mixed New Wave-inspired aesthetics, a bold rock soundtrack, and star-making performances by Peter Fonda and Jack Nicholson.
