Silver Screen

I am to begin work on An Englishman in New York this September. Its a feature film starring 2 time Oscar nominee John Hurt that centers around the later years of Quentin Crisp. I am looking forward to making my feature film debut! Its slated to hit theatres in 2008.


  1. Congratulations on your imminent film debut! "Break a leg!" from RC in Austin, Texas

  2. Hi,

    I was checking out your site today- very cool and informative. Your readers might be interested to know that Resident Alien, a film about cult figure Quentin Crisp's arrival in New York, is now available to download on iTunes.

    About the film -
    At age 73, Quentin Crisp moved to the States where he became an Englishman in New York. In this film, director Jonathan Nossiter follows Mr. Crisp about the streets of Manhattan, in and out of fantasy and reality, where he seems very much at home, wearing eye shadow, appearing on a makeshift stage, making and repeating wry observations, and dining with friends. Commentary by notable British celebs such as Sting and John Hurt, as well as demi-stars and wannabe Warhol Superstars who know Mr. Crisp, illuminate the life of this effeminate and eccentric fellow. The portrait that emerges is one of absolute wit and of suffering.

    Your site is the perfect place to spread the word about something like this, and we would all really appreciate your help in getting out the good news.
