Ever been watching a movie or flipping through the channels on your TV and come across an actor or actress you know you've seen before -- and maybe even know from where -- but can't remember the name? If you live in the UK, one of those actresses just may be Sarah-Jane Potts, who has been a fixture on UK TV, and to a lesser extent film, over the past 10 years.
What happened to independent film? Of late I find myself pining for the woebegone days when guerilla filmmakers produced colorful and rebellious forays into the avant-garde like Harmony Korrine's Gummo or Vincent Gallo's Brown Bunny. Sure, some of them were disasters but they were interesting disasters.
