Psychopath chronicles a dream project about creating nightmares

…After working in cheap reality TV for years – including an MTV show called “That ’70s House,” essentially “Big Brother” or “The Real World” clad in hippie garb – Marquez decided he needed a break from reality TV and wanted to dip his toes into something completely different: actual reality.
A decade later, the result is “Psychopath,” one of the Cream City Cinema selections currently featured at the Milwaukee Film Festival. The charming, crowd-pleasing documentary follows Victor, a small town Oklahoma garbage man – as well as Manny’s uncle – with a crazy dream: to put his Hollywood makeup skills to work and build an incredible haunted ride attraction cleverly called Psycho Path. Along the way, Victor’s dream turns into a nightmare, as the build is slow and the neighbors aren’t particularly keen to the idea…

"Stray Dog" offers a sensitive portrait of a gentle biker

When Oscar-nominated writer and director Debra Granik visited Missouri to scout locations for “Winter’s Bone,” she visited a local church for a service. As she sat in the pew, she took notice of a burly, hairy biker sitting near her. Taking notice of his Vietnam War tattoo that’s imprinted onto his arm, she elicited a conversation.
The rest is history.
This man, Ron “Stray Dog” Hall, is a veteran who’s far gentler than as he appears, but he’s also a wrecked soul. After they’ve met, Granik gave Ron a minor role in “Winter’s Bone,” and later returned to rural Missouri to record Ron in his natural habitat for the documentary “Stray Dog,” which made its Milwaukee premiere on Sept. 27 at the Oriental as part of the Milwaukee Film Festival…

"Life’s A Breeze" has a heart the size of a mattress despite its flaws

"…Life’s A Breeze," an Irish comedy from director Lance Daly, is about as compelling as a primetime sitcom.
Even its monotonous title, which derives from the air freshener that hangs on the wall inside of a character’s home, suggests that the film is light and breezy rather than anything else. It aims to make us laugh with flailing, forced comedic beats while squandering on its promises.
At the center of the comedy, which made its Milwaukee premiere at the Milwaukee Film Festival on Sept. 27, is Nan (Fionnula Flanagan), an old-fashioned Irish hoarder who doesn’t mind living amongst the clutter inside of her Dublin home, but her fractious four grown children decide to surprise her with a housecleaning…

Talking trash with a female garbage collector

"…They didn’t know what do with me," says McGuire. "I was 120 pounds, 21 years old. I wanted to go down into the sewers, but they wouldn’t let me do anything but sweep. It wasn’t that they were mean to me, but I think they saw me as unusable material. It would be like a man showing up at a quilting bee…"
