One of the many films that left quite a mark on us during last year’s Fantasia Film Festival, was the often funny, thought provoking film MEATHEAD GOES HOGWILD (review). Feeling like if FALLING DOWN and TAXI DRIVER met a young man doing his best just to spread good, the film boasted one hell of a performance from […]
