Interview with Melvin Van Peebles at

What the Hell? I've plugged it everywhere else; I'll plug it here.

I had a lengthy and extremely stimulating chat with one of the architects of modern independent cinema, Melvin Van Peebles. The director of Sweet Sweetback's Badasssss Song was easily one of the most inspiring and fascinating people I've ever spoken to, and the interview (all partisan bias aside) turned out pretty all-right.

Check out, a fine new Seattle-centric website. My review of Van Peebles' newest movie lives here, and the interview lives here.
