Hats don't say 'miaow'

Stuart has selected the films for October's Monorail Film Club at the Glasgow Film Theatre.

American Movie (15)
Sunday 25 October

A tribute to a beer-guzzling Mid-western filmmaker and indie spirit this documentary is an ambitious, wildly funny chronicle by Chris Smith that celebrates the do-or-die lifestyle of redneck auteur Mark Borchardt.

The film is preceded by short film Heavy Metal Jr by Chris Waitt (24 minutes)

Selected and introduced by Stuart Braithwaite from Mogwai.

"I chose the films because of the juxtaposition; guys getting into music at a young age with everything in front of them, and a guy making a film that is in a position most people would have walked away from years earlier. Both documentaries are pretty touching and occasionally very funny."
