by Legendary Lew
This year marks the tenth anniversary of the production of the Joseph Lewis feature, Tyler B Nice, the strange film about a party gone wrong. It’s gotten the critical acclaim of people like Andrew Bujalski and is really due for a discovery.
We present here comments by the director and TUGM co-founder Joseph R. Lewis. His statements from ten years ago still hold truth for those who want to get the best results in independent media.
Joe Lewis will be available for a LIVE Q&A tonight answering questions about his second feature film Tyler B. Nice, which is available online for free. Tonight at 9:30pm via UStream.tv. Just search for The Underground Multiplex.
We at The Underground Multiplex would like to remind you of the FREE movies you can download from our site. All of our work, from the feature-length films of Joseph R.

From the description: “TYLER B. NICE is a montage of found video from a night of blurry memories OR a chronicling of the ugly but colorful lives of a small group of deviants and lovers in Boston, circa 2005 OR why i hate parties. Written over the course of a two month rehearsal period with a company of over 15 performers.”
“Gorgeous for sure and the performances are all remarkable.” — Andrew Bujalski
