WILD SEED
In the searing drama and anguished love story The Wild Seed, adopted teenager Daphne (Celia Kaye) runs away from her East Coast home to search out her biological father on the other side of the country. She meets handsome drifter Fargo (Michael Parks) who helps her bum across America, teaching her how to hitch, panhandle, and ride the rails. An undeniable connection grows between them, and each fear what will happen when they reach their destination, when their polar worlds threaten to yank them apart. Parks’ astounding performance as the brooding heartthrob, which elevates what could be straightforward exploitation fare into a bona fide classic of jazzy, delinquent American indie cinema.

THE IDOL
Never-released-on-home-video ultra-rarity! Michael Parks shines as a tortured, rebellious art student in swinging ‘60s London. No woman could resist him but his life and friendships spiral out of control when he seduces his best friend’s domineering mother (an excellent Jennifer Jones). The act of love does not makes this a love story… the act of worship does not make him The Idol.
