New Where in the Hell Is the Lavender House? The Longmont Potion Castle Story

  • Whatsapp

An unpaid camera operator is left to finish the film a bumbling pair of filmmakers attempt to make about the greatest anonymous phone-work artist of all time -Longmont Potion Castle. The Banksy of phone-work, Longmont Potion Castle’s oeuvre is probably best described by executive producer Rainn Wilson as “a sublime work of art: as if Salvador Dali moved to suburban Denver, got stoned and made prank phone calls.” For over 30 years, Longmont Potion Castle has been releasing phone-art insanity to his rabid fan base that include such luminaries as Queens of the Stone Age, Jimmy Eat World, Deer Tick, Steve Aoki and a host of other entertainers and musicians who turn to Longmont Potion Castle for laughs and inspiration. Featuring interviews with Rainn Wilson, Andrew Bujalski, Pissed Jeans, Municipal Waste, the owners of NBS Electronics as well as the Twist and Shout record store, Pig Destroyer, Weyes Blood, Cattle Decapitation, Pinback, and a variety of hardcore fans, “Where in the Hell is the Lavender House? The Longmont Potion Castle story” peeks behind the curtain of America’s underground phone-work king, and documents a film doomed to fail from the beginning.

  1. I'm happy to be able to see LPC do his thing in his studio, and I appreciated seeing him just driving around talking about stuff and just talking about random stuff. Overall, I'm happy!

  2. he says it on film that he's not a producer and then he's the executive producer which means, since it's been here for months and it hasn't been pulled, he intended to be the executive producer and that was just a gimmick

  3. Oh, ok.

    Oh, ok, I get it now.

    This is esoteric garbage that Biden voters call “art.”

    Got it.

  4. Whenever you have the guys behind the camera get in front of the camera for a good part of the movie is a bad sign. These guys really just had 30 – 45 minutes, the rest is nonsense

  5. Never thought I would see something like this dude been having cracking up for years

  6. This was pretty good! I was getting worried I'd have to come down there, rough ya up and flatten ya out.

  7. These people that are calling this “high art” would take a close look at explosive diarrhea against a white backdrop. Don’t get me wrong I love lpc but it’s just a guy making prank calls. It is oddly entertaining though.

  8. I can't stand people that repeatedly say dude, bro, man, fam, etc. It's not gangster or cool and neither are you. It makes you sound dumb of anything

  9. – Soo I guess anybody can make a movie about anything now 🤷.
    – If short on material just interview a bunch of relatively famous people.
    The equivalence of stuffing your paper with quotations to meet the minimum requirement of pages.

  10. Exactly what I expected: It raises more questions than it answers. I've been a fan of LPC for 20 years. After watching this, I feel like I know less about him. My bowel is not a magnet.

  11. But like, blurring Tom Green's face isn't enough to make him not recognizable ¯_(ツ)_/¯

  12. I saw this in the theater the week the pandemic hit. Good last indoor public event to have gone to.


  14. This commercial is the equivalent of when you try to stretch out your essay to 1000 words

  15. does this doc show Lpc’s face???? I don’t wanna see it but wanna watch this so bad lol

  16. I was born and raised in Longmont and it's the most random unknown town in the US… till now

  17. Zero idea what's really going on but still really wanna watch. Best kinda trailer.
