Poster Premiere For Bruce McDonald's Hard Core Logo 2

Forming a sort of conclusion to his unofficial trilogy of road movies that began with 1989's Roadkill and continued with 1991's Highway 61, Bruce McDonald's Hard Core Logo became something of a cult sensation - one that firmly entrenched McDonald as one of Canada's most iconic indie filmmakers while also launching star Hugh Dillon's transformation from hard drinking rock singer to screen star.There had been rumblings of an in-the-works sequel for years before it actually came to be and, true to form, McDonald's Hard Core Logo 2 refused to play by the rules laid down by the original.In this long-awaited B-Side to Hard Core Logo, Bruce McDonald brings a new rock and roll persona to light: Care Failure of the band Die Mannequin, who...
