TAXI TO THE GIFTSHOP
Writing your own blog comes with many perks, some of them less evident than others. Grammar and spelying practice for one. Rarely, a reader will shock my letter carrier by sending a generous gift in response to a post. After recently profiling the 1981 classic "Taxi Zum Klo" (Taxi to the Toilet), I got a surprise email from Justin at Breaking Glass Pictures who offered to send me a remastered 30th anniversary edition to compliment my extensive DVD collection. Who could resist such a generous offer? Along with a beautiful website, Taxi Zum Klo has the best box cover (and title) of any film EVER. Take a lesson from the Germans Hollywood. . . Graphic design matters.
I can't give everyone a free copy (or anyone for that matter), but if you'd like to watch the film for yourself (or other queer related titles) check out the Breaking Glass catalogue.
