Thanks for the head’s up on this, Adam. Sad to hear about.
You know, Jennifer Kroot made an interesting documentary about him and his brother called It Came From Kuchar, which was on Netflix streaming — hopefully/maybe it still is?
Would be cool if you and/or Mike Kitchell and/or Adam Jameson (our resident cinephiles) wrote something about his work. I know only a bit more than I learned from Kroot’s documentary, so I’d be eager to learn. From what I know, the films seem amazing in a sort of Captain Beefheart meets Ed Wood type of way.
That’s really too bad. And Chris, I’m not really the guy to write about Kuchar. I know his work, but only passingly, really. But a bunch of my friends in the Chicago film scene are big Kuchar fans; if any of them post anything, I’ll put a link here.
Kuchar + Raul Ruiz means I have two dead filmmakers to catch up with…
