Interview with Manborg Director Steven Kostanski! | the Film Lab
One of our favourite movies of 2011—Manborg, which we saw at Toronto After Dark—has become one of our favourite movies of 2012 with its week-long run here in Toronto at the Royal. A gloriously funny pastiche of ultra-cheap kung-fu, horror and sci-fi, Manborg is also a perfect example of the DIY ethic: it wears its rough, hand-made edges proudly, and its intense roughness makes its devotion to '80s channel-100-at-3-AM crap-cinema ephemera even funnier. We had a chance to speak with director Steven Kostanski about what might be the best thousand-dollar feature ever.
