Thumbs up Nice interview Chaostar

Damn that was wierd. He must have been either miss informed or just out of the loop (so to speak). Hopefully everything got cleared up later on.

No Chaostar, I'm unaware o this feud. My guess is that do to some legal B.S. they (Synapse) got the rights to the film without Bebber's concent.

Thanks Chaostar. I'd heard about parts of this story with the phone calls but not the whole story. Is the DVD still in print?

That's awesome! I never understood why Bebber bitched so much about the Deadbeat disc, the quality was quite good considering the source and all. To answer your question Shannafey, I love this movie but I know there are alot of people who don't. It can be pretty slow at times. I just love these old white street gang flicks with leather jackets and nunchucks.

Could Jim Van Bebber be the Derek Smart of the film world?

I admire Van Bebber's cinematic skills but, really, the DVD looked as good as it could. I have done some shorts my self while studing flim direction in Greece and the UK and I know how shitty a 16 mm A/B roll print can look so when I saw the DVD I was really surprised.
His comments are absurd and have no logic at all. And considering what a cool guy Don May Jr. is, Van Bebber reacted like a 2year old...
