skip tracer (1977) vancouver screening!!!

skip tracer is an oddball canadian film shot in vancouver during the late 1970's. despite its many merits (acting, atmosphere, subtext, score), the movie never caught on w/ a widespread audience and disappeared into the cinematic ether. though it did surface on VHS w/ an alternative title in the 1980's (deadly business), skip tracer has yet to see an official DVD release... oh yeah, it's about a repo man!!! it's good. heavy vibes...

be sure to catch a rare public screening of this unsung masterpiece at the pacific cinematheque tomorrow night (march 24, 7:00 pm) presented by notable CDN author michael turner (hard core logo) w/ a possible appearance from skip tracer lead actor, david petersen.

YES!!! go see it!!! i'll be in the back row...
