Haven't seen American Movie? Y

Scorsese. Hitchcock. Coppola. Lucas. Borchardt. If that last name doesn't ring a bell, it ain't for a lack of trying. Mark Borchardt has been a filmmaker since his childhood, cranking out such cinematic epics as The More the Scarier, The More the Scarier II, The More the Scarier III, I Blow Up and Coven. If you haven't heard of any of the films, you're not alone. Although Mark has the tenacity of a junkyard dog, his films' distribution generally stops at the perimeter of the basement of his parents' house, where the 37-year-old still lives.

But with the home video release of the gut-bustingly funny documentary on Mark's ordeals as a director, American Movie, his films are getting a lot of attention, for better or for worse. What his films lack in quality, they make up for in sheer determination. American Movie follows Mark and his film partner/best friend/recovering alcoholic/gambling addict/severe drug casualty Mike Schank in their attempts to make Coven, the world's first horror movie about a group of Alcoholic's Anonymous members who also happen to be murderous witches. A massive drinker himself, Mark's films always involve boozin' - imagine horror-master Sam Raimi (of Evil Dead fame) on a six-day bender and a six-dollar budget and you've got the work of Mark Borchardt.

The KNAC.COM interview promises to be one of the best moments in radio history. Seriously. Mark is prone to rambling, wild-eyed rants (even better when he's been drinking) that will leave your head spinning, while Mike's drug-addled comments are sure to provide quotable gems for years to come. They're also big Metallica fans, and if you ask about James' recent rehab stint, they'll probably fire off a twenty-minute diatribe about the evils of AA.

American Movie is available at your local video rental store for purchase or rent, and it is something you need to see to believe.

Highlight your calendar, quit your job, ignore your loved ones: do whatever it takes to catch this interview with Mark and Philthy Phil. THURSDAY, MAY 23rd, 4 PM PT
