As part of Reel Canada's National Canadian Film Day celebrations, actor and artist Stephen Lack participated in a lengthy Q&A with NOW Magazine's senior film writer Norman Wilner after a free screening of David Cronenberg's cranium-cracking classique Scanners (1981) at Toronto's Royal Cinema.
Topics include Scanners’ 35 years of cult fame, blowing up Louis Del Grande’s head, co-star Patrick McGoohan, director Cronenberg, make-up whiz Dick Smith, and The Rubber Gun, a 1977 film co-written by Lack and director Allan Moyle which is seeking a Canadian partner in assembling a special edition release using rare materials from Lack’s own private archives.
Following this slightly edited version of the half-hour Q&A are my editorial thoughts on the ongoing problems in finding indie, art, cult, and CanCon tax shelter classics (such as Kings and Desperate Men) on DVD and as digital downloads.
