Dangerous Men

Filmmakers are an inherently maniacal breed of people. They believe they have something in their head that is so profound they most enlist a small army of men and women to pry it from their very imaginations, capture it on an ephemeral medium, and then broadcast it to other human beings in the hope that the insane process conjures some kind of impression on them.

To that end, Dangerous Men is the purest of cinema. This movie, which took 26 years to make, is a stunning example of one man trying his damnedest to crack open his own soul and share it with the world. The resulting action movie about a woman’s quest to rid the world of criminal scum is, by traditional standards, a bad movie. But a more truthful bad movie you may never see.

There are a lot of people who are going to discover the surreal disaster that is Dangerous Men when Drafthouse Films re-releases it in theaters on November 13, 2015, and they are going to rightfully freak out because it is a legendary movie that is hilarious and stiff and weird and awesome and absurd and brilliant all at once. For a lot of people, this is a “so bad it’s good” type of movie. All I ask is that when you do see it – and you absolutely need to see this movie to believe it exists – is that you consider it for what it really is: one man trying so desperately to make art.

Writer, Director, Producer, Editor, Set Decorator, and Production Designer John S. Rad may fail at externalizing the art that burns so brightly inside him, but holy hell did he try. That’s more than can be said of most armchair filmmakers, and that is why it is our sincere pleasure to premiere these two character posters for his one and only movie, Dangerous Men.

 

Dangerous Men hits theaters on November 13, 2015. It will be available on Blu-ray, DVD, and – of course – VHS in 2016.
