I recently came across an excellent interview with Filmmaker Alexander Perlman who just completed his first documentary Lot Lizard. After spending a few months hitchiking from New York City to San Francisco, he met a sex worker during a chance encounter and came up with his idea for a film. Now, he claims, he has post traumatic stress disorder from the pain and heartache he witnessed first hand while making the doc. It certainly looks dark and riveting. Check out the trailer below, and read the entire interview here.
