In this episode- part of a crossover with the fantastic Star Trek podcast Spocklight- we discuss Paul Schrader's directorial debut, 'Blue Collar'.
Expect conversation about Schrader's career, kicking in walls, Richard Pryor's stunning performance in this film, The Wire, real-life tales from the set of this film and much more.
Also, be sure to download my guest-spot on the most recent episode of Spocklight where we talk about the 1970s remake of 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers'. Available now from all good pod-catchers!
Following on from our 'Nuts in May' episode, this week Jev and I discuss Mike Leigh's follow-up, 'Abigail's Party'.
In this brief episode I look at three Woody Allen films - Bananas, Everything You Wanted to Know About Sex and Play It Again Sam- in terms of how much they held up on a 2019 rewatch. So in what ways are they dated, are they still funny and how do the allegations made against Allen affect a viewing of these films.
In this episode Jake and I return to the disaster genre with an episode on 'The Towering Inferno', the classic Steve McQueen and Paul Newman vs a big fire film. And thankfully our conversation is shorter than the film.
Continuing our look at the Seven Up documentary series, Kieran and I discuss '21 Up'.
