“The Greasy Strangler” has the potential to lead a new generation of weird-movie lovers as the king of midnight. Mr. Hosking, who wrote the film with Toby Harvard, said he returned to his “preoccupations with people feeling lost or out of step with the world,” a feeling he experienced as a child in his native England watching British TV comedies that were “very absurd or anarchic.”
“I wanted it to feel like this very singular, almost joke that you were in on, and you took delight in some people not getting its wavelength,” said Mr. Hosking, whose work as a director of commercials is just as oddball. “I was trying to create a really weird, strange world and a strange language, knowing that some people would love going on that trip.
When someone asks me why I make art, I respond by telling that I feel the urge to create something after the endless dialog I’m having with a superior detached self. It’s true, I never take all the credit for the final results of my work; the whole creational process is liberating and comes natural: I’m receiving and transposing everything back into my artworks.
There are some tricks I’ve learned over time that helps me access a visionary state of mind. One of them is listening to a specific type of music. Actually, I’m hearing the pauses between heavy beats, so I create an empty space inside me – there is where the dialog takes place.
#ColectivaSilverScreen proposes a series of feature and documentary film screenings with dystopian, anarchist, activist, trangressive and other various underground culture related themes, ranging from the culture’s onset until the present day.
