Algren's Writing

Posted on 04.03.2014

Nelson Algren was not the only person who wrote about the poor and dispossessed. What made him stand out was the quality of his writing–it was poetic and beautiful. We have endeavored to make a movie that’s as exciting as reading an Algren novel. We don’t need a boring documentary about an amazing writer. We hope we have succeeded.

Link

With the sad passing of Lou Reed, it’s worth taking a moment to reflect on the multiple links of Reed’s work to Algren.  The most well known is, of course, Walk on the Wild Side, which drew its title from Algren’s 1956 novel.  wildside

 

However, Reed also mentioned Algren in 1992, when he said, There was nothing in those songs that I hadn’t read about in books or seen in movies. Man With the Golden Arm had been out for years before I wrote “Heroin.” When people started yelling, I thought, “Go take after Nelson Algren, for Christ’s sake.”

Reed also brings up Algren in his live version of Street Hassle, where he says  “I wanted to write a song that had a great monologue set to rock. Something that could have been written by William Burroughs, Hubert Selby, John Rechy, Tennessee Williams, Nelson Algren, maybe a little Raymond Chandler. You mix it all up and you have ‘Street Hassle’.”

RIP, Lou.

2013 has been a good year for us.  Algren (the movie) is nearing completion.  Wayne Kramer, the outstanding composer, guitarist and all around rock legend is scoring the movie, even as we speak.  Then, it’s a sound mix, titles and color correction and we hit the world in 2014.  Can’t wait.  Stay tuned≥

2013 will be a Nelson Algren year

Posted on 12.15.2012

We will complete the movie and get it out to the world in 2013. All of the Nelson Algren, Simone de Beauvoir and great Chicago writers fans in the world will be happy to see it–we think!


Editing continues

Posted on 12.13.2012

Our edit on Algren continues mightily. It is looking to be about 90 minutes and it tells a story that should satisfy the Nelson Algren and Simone de Beauvoir fans and the novice, who doesn’t know that they need to know who Algren is. It will premiere in 2013–that’s a definite–we just don’t know what month or where–yet!

Our new blog

Posted on 04.02.2012

Welcome to our new website, and our new blog. In this age of blogs, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, et al, it is hard to keep the word out in a way that all of our fans can get, but experts have told us that the best way to link certain names, like Nelson Algren, and Eugene Burger, to the website is to have the blog be linked to the website more completely, so here we are.

The edit of Algren is proceeding mightily, after spending the summer editing together the assembly. We are now editing at Protein Editorial and are looking forward to completing the movie by the end of November and qualifying for festivals in early 2013. Stay tuned, and thanks for checking us out!
