"Because. I had a bad day at work. I had to subvert my principles and kow-tow to an idiot. Television makes these daily sacrifices possible. Deadens the inner core of my being."

We've been waiting for this for, oh, a decade or so.

Artificial Eye have finally released Trust on DVD, and if you've not seen it, then you should make sure you check it out. It's one of the best examples of the early 90s wave of American independent movies, featuring a cracking script, brilliant performances, and great photography.

The film was directed by Hal Hartley in 1990, with cinematography by Michael Spiller (who more recently has been directing TV shows like Scrubs and Ugly Betty), and stars Martin Donovan and Adrienne Shelley.

Coinciding with this is the publication of True Fiction Pictures & Possible Filmsin which Hartley discusses the rise and fall of the American indie scene.

Great stuff.
