Tom Palazzolo Characteristics


Tom Palazzolo’s films could be characterized as an escape from the "hum-drum middle class existence. He was attracted to people wearing strange costumes and putting their bodies into strange positions. He liked the absurd. He liked not being prepared and never being sure of what was going to happen. He felt that "it was more important to come up with an off-beat take on things than to tell the truth." He was not interested in the truth. He felt that "the truth could be twisted in unexpected ways."

He looked at making films as a "way to look outward not inward, to explore his environment, not reorder it. It was a celebration of disorder, an ode to the joys of the Junk Culture.

--Rebecca Sanders, 2001
