Calamari Union #

Released 2/8/1985

Description: Calamari Union is an allegorical film that says the storyline of sixteen boys all of whom are named Frank (inspired by Frank Armoton) apart from a single confrere, Pekka. Collectively the Franks and Pekka are unhappy with the perceived oppression they face in their district of Helsinki, Kallio, and decide to transport to another, Eira, imagining it to be an unspoiled zone where folks can live lives of dignity. The adventure is an ironic one given that both districts are not so far apart. In this spirit, their adventure across the town takes on epic proportions with every of the travellers gradually falling by the wayside due to such travails as marriage, work, and death. In its entirety the movie is a wry discussion of humanity within a system that regards humans as subservient components.

The Honkers Reviews:

"The Honkers" is probably Slim Pickens greatest performance of all time. When we were shooting, everyone connected with the production figured that Slim was Academy Award material. Unfortunately, United Artists had a James Bond picture in release at the same time and did not devote much attention to "The Honkers". I personally feel this movie was under-rated by most critics. Sam Peckinpaw's "Junior Bonner" was out at the same time and seemed to impress the critics more than our film. Also, Cliff Robertson had a rodeo movie out a several months before our release and that might have harm us, too. The picture is worth watching, if just for the rodeo footage--some of the greatest ever filmed--shot by James Crabbe. The director and my co-writer, Steve Ianat, died a several weeks after the picture's release, cutting short a promising career and leaving behind his lovely wife Sally, his daughter, Gaby, and newborn son, Stefan. Please give this film a shot. I'm betting that you'll tell it was well worth while. I thank anyone who has taken the time to read this. Stephen Lodge


The Hookers was to me a nice daily folks story, Like someone you might have known. Just trying to create it, my large shot is right around the corner. Then Life's tiny temptations creep in, the spoiler, stumbled again. How much, can your love take, and give, to the guy who's really not so bad, after all, just Human. I liked it, I was also a paid additional in the movie. Played the drums in the bar shots, with the band, did few walking shots, my green 66' corvette was in the motel party shots. Unbelievable cast and crew, first rate people, down to world movie. I had lunch with James Coburn, on Mother's Day, what a unbelievable man, just like I've known him for years, I'll never forget him. My father spent the day with Slim Pickens, and swapped horse stories, Slim also was really down to earth, love those guys, we really miss them. True folks making films about true people, Thanks Levy, Gardner, and Laven.


This is one of those films that was never publicized and therefore was missed when it originally played in the theaters.I came across it while switching TV channels and was instantly engrossed in this storyline of an aging rodeo bum whose recklessness and lack of responsibility harm everyone around him. I've often wanted to see the film again but couldn't even remember its name, and have never seen it in the rental stores.James Coburn and Slim Pickens were perfect in their roles, and the rodeo footage was first rate. While being an action film and having a western setting and theme it should be enjoyed by anyone regardless of their taste in films.
