Tom Waits - 'Hell Broke Luce'
"I have worked with Tom for almost thirty years. He and I seem to have some of the same crossed wires...which has produced some fun and exciting sparks over the years. Like the other times I have worked with Tom, it starts with a casual call and evolves into an all-consuming art/lovefest. Tom and Kathleen had the image of a man pulling his house...a metaphor for the life that follows one into war. Production-wise I do everything myself: direct, shoot, edit, build the props, buy the donuts. This one-man-band approach is steeped in my background as a painter... I want my fingers in every pot. Finally, working on this video with Tom was a chance to express my contempt for war and the pain that rains down upon us all from the tortured decision to send the young ones off to such horror."Matt Mahurin
