Anne Billson has posted a 1985 interview she did with director George Miller (the Mad Max films). Miller talks about many things including Aunty Entity’s probable past as a hero and Max as, in Mel Gibson’s words, “a closet human being.” (Thanks, Matt!)

In discussing Astron-6’s horror movie, Father’s Day, Dave Pace notes that what seems to make viewers uncomfortable is not the violence but the nudity, the male nudity. “What I don’t understand is the uncomfortable shifting around and the outright revulsion you will hear for the scenes where you just see regular naked men. I also utterly fail to grasp why the man on man rape in this movie is considered more shocking or brutal–and therefore worthy of special warnings –than the rape of a woman.” Pace also talks with members of Astron-6, a Winnipeg-based filmmaking collective.
