Baked Goods: Encountering Sean Baker's Cinema

Over at Fanzine, I wrote about how Sean Baker's films are built around encounters, meetings, and confrontations.

Mead's World [Taylor Mead]

In the fourth issue of Art Decades, I wrote about the Underground icon, Taylor Mead. Highlighting many of his roles throughout his five-decade career, I examine Mead's performances in such works as The Queen of Sheba Meets the Atom Man (1963), The Nude Restaurant (1967), Candy and Daddy (1972), and Coffee and Cigarettes (2003). Sadly, many of the films that he appears in are still hard to see.
