Brock Enright: Good Times Will Never Be The Same Coming To DVD
The DVD and Blu-Ray package of Brock Enright: Good Times Will Never Be The Same includes Blackgoat, a 69-minute film by Brock Enright, video loops used in his art installation, a conversation between Robert Longo & Brock Enright and an essay by artist Carroll Dunham. The limited edition package also includes a vinyl LP of music by Brock Enright and Kirsten Deirup titled Torben, a film poster and original artwork hand drawn on each record by Brock.
Lipes' vérité film follows controversial emerging artist Brock Enright and his girlfriend, painter Kirsten Deirup, as Enright prepares a career-breaking exhibition for New York City's prominent Perry Rubinstein Gallery.
Having appeared on "The View," "Good Morning America," and in countless print publications after Rolling Stone profiled his company, Videogames Adventure Services (VAS), which provided "designer kidnapping services," Enright began focusing exclusively on his artwork and was selected to participate in numerous acclaimed group exhibitions including PS1/MoMA's Greater New York show. Shortly thereafter, Enright was approached by distinguished New York gallerist Perry Rubinstein to create a career-defining exhibition. Lipes' film picks up here, presenting an intensely intimate look at Enright and his preparation. Lipes' lens bypasses the art itself, locking into the struggle Enright and his girlfriend face as his graphic process and professional aspirations conflict with their relationship and financial well-being. Enright is forced to confront his own identity when his art tests the limits of family, collaborators and even the artist himself.
The DVD release of Brock Enright: Good Times Will Never Be The Same arrives on the heels of Lipes' SXSW Audience Award-winning scripted adaptation of Jerome Robbins' NY Export: Opus Jazz currently airing on PBS. Lipes has also been acclaimed for his work as director of photography for Lena Dunham's 2010's SXSW Jury Prize winner for Best Narritive Tiny Furniture and Antonio Campos' Afterschool (Cannes 2008).
Directed and shot by Lipes, Brock Enright: Good Times Will Never Be The Same is produced by Lipes and Kyle Martin, and executive produced by Louis E. Della Penna and Andrew F. Renzi. All original music is by Brock Enright, and the film's editor is Lance Edmands.
