Deborah Harry Does Not Like Interviews
"What's wrong with being sexy?"
I guess SPINAL TAP's Nigel Tufnel would fail to see the point of this short 17-minute long documentary summarizing Blondie's career through a montage of the worst questions asked on repeat by TV presenters ("Why did you dye your hair/take on some weight? How do you compare to Madonna?")... until the band brings a puppet monkey called Minkie to answer in their stead.
Debbie Harry's facial expressions as the questions get stupider and stupider are absolutely priceless!

Blondie’s Debbie Harry endures years of superficial, tedious, and demeaning questions from journalists until she devises a brilliant way to turn interviews on their head.
Director Meghan Fredrich answers some questions about her movie here:

The Exorcist II: first watch
Just wanted to share this theory I have regarding John Boorman's sequel which - everyone will agree to this - is a bit of a mess. But what if it all happened in Richard Burton's head?
Quoting from my initial post on Letterboxd:
"Finally, after all these years of carefully avoiding this movie like a plague of locust, I caved in and sat down to watch, bewildered and greatly amused, this train-wreck. What can I say? Definitely a product of its time: Uri Geller, ESP, nonsensical parapsychology all mixed up with - faint - traces of the original and at least a more serious attempt to give Father Merrin and good ole Pazuzu a bit of an origin story.
