Accidental Bear’s Interview with International Film Star Domiziano Arcangeli: Nothing Held Back

by Accidental Bear

At an early age he was laced with a rebellious twinkle in his eye. International film star Domiziano Arcangeli, as a teen, was plucked from the streets by Helmut Newton and flown to Berlin for photo shoots which scored him magazine covers. His life never returned to “normal”. Domiziano was a hot potato, bouncing in the hands of such masters as director Federico Fellini, who he landed his first movie role with. Roles as villains and bad-ass vampires fall into his lap effortlessly and he carries an impressive spread sheet of films.

Like the slightest pin prick in a water balloon that turns into a full on waterfalls, I ask Domiziano a few pointed  questions and he gives me detailed, fervent and revealing answers. He is a straight shooter. If he has flown under your radar, now is the time to focus your lens and make a mental bookmark. He is working on a number of “cult” films that will make you give up on Hollywood fluff films for some good old-fashioned blood and gore.

Together Domiziano and I worked through his gay erotic scenes, crazy vengeful ex’s, life as a bad-ass, being blindfolded and put in restraints by a perverted and curious psychiatrist, his openness to participate in a gay sex scene with ex-porn actor David Taylor and  men throwing themselves all over him like a hot fudge sundae.

Accidental Bear: Where are you living these days?

Domiziano Arcangeli:  I live in los Angeles and I love it. I know what they say about LA, I don’t agree, it’s a gorgeous land. My home is in the city, yet I feel up in the country, where I have squirrels and hummingbirds in the garden surrounding me and I feel like I’m in the middle of nowhere (which I love to think…), however I’m in the middle of the studios and by taking one freeway or the other I reach all the main work sites. It’s cool!

I love all Things Taschen Touches (Books)

by Accidental Bear

It’s not to early to start making your 2011 Christmas list. Taschen has a way of making all subjects a visual orgasm. You may have seen one of the most popular books titled Big Penis Book. Perhaps looked at it from across the room with longing, coming hither fuck me eyes? This newest book on photographers is a must see. The thing about Taschen‘s books is that a lot of them are limited edition and then disappear. One day i will have them all (wicked evil laugh).
