Bruce LaBruce TV Takeover

Cult Canadian filmmaker, photographer, writer, and artist Bruce LaBruce takes over Purple TV.

“The greatest thing about YouTube is that you can watch your most favorite or your least favorite clips from TV over and over and over and over and over again. Then, when someone makes a compilation of some of your most favorite or least favorite clips from TV, you can watch the compilation of clips over and over and over and over and over again. There’s something about the repetition of opening credit sequences of certain TV shows that becomes mesmerizing, putting your brain into an Alpha state that releases endorphins in your brain pretty much the same way that heroin or opioids do. So, feel free to get high on the credit sequences from two of my favorite TV shows – Better Call Saul and Shelley Duvall’s Faerie Tale Theatre – plus a compilation of all the paintings from the introduction to each episode of another of my favorite shows, Night Gallery. I’ve thrown in a compilation of Dr. Smith screaming from one of my all time favorite TV shows, Lost in Space, which you may end up doing yourself  if you dare to watch Donald Trump (one of my least favorite TV characters) saying “China” for 9 hours, 59 minutes, and 24 seconds. Talk about a bad trip!” – Bruce LaBruce

His new film currently in production, The Misandrists, tells the story of a secret cell of feminist terrorists planning to liberate women, overthrow the patriarchy, and usher in a new female world order.

For one week watch a new video selected by the internationally acclaimed director exclusively on Purple TV.
