Inside the Pink Stable By Chuck Stephens

Club’s Noel Murray, coinciding with the release this week of Criterion’s special editions of Louie Bluie and Crumb. Read the entire entertaining conversation, in which Zwigoff lays out the production and distribution sagas of these breakthrough documentaries and how they informed his subsequent fiction filmmaking, as well as his brief history with Woody Allen and his love of old French films.
