Just got word that L.M. Kit Carson, best known as the star of Jim McBride's landmark faux-doc David Holzman's Diary, will be in Philadelphia for a Temple Cinematheque screening Friday afternoon. Carson has one of the most fascinatingly peripatetic careers in the biz, ranging from co-writing Paris, Texas to exec-producing Bottle Rocket, not to mention writing the script for the tongue-in-cheek sequel to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. I talked to Carson for the A.V. Club last year, on the occasion of David Holzman's long-overdue U.S. DVD debut, with a especially intriguing detour into The American Dreamer, the documentary he shot on the set of Dennis Hopper's The Last Movie. As for the film itself, I've written about it several times, most recently for Time Out Chicago. If you're in or near Philadelphia and can knock off work early on Friday, Carson's visit is not something you want to miss.
