#4. Pecker John Waters spot-on satire of the New York art scene

To coincide with the forthcoming paperback edition of his art-noir novel Mickey The Mimic published by Disco City Books in July, Kirk Lake selects his top five made-up film artists.

1. The Rebel - Tony Hancock's masterful portrayal of a deluded artist. Should be required viewing at all art colleges.

2. Cellar Dweller - In an artists' colony a comic book plagiarist unleashes a beast. Classic 1980s no-frills/ limited skills VHS era horror.

3. Zandalee - "BLACK IT ALL OUT!" - Ludicrous erotic thriller with Nicholas Cage as unconvincing as an artist as his wig is as hair.

4. Pecker - John Waters spot-on satire of the New York art scene.

5. A Bucket of Blood - Roger Corman goes beatnik.

Mickey The Mimic is published in paperback on July 4 by Disco City Books.
