WRONG REEL PODCAST — JOSEPH LOSEY — THE BLACKLIST, EXILE AND BEYOND

I took a break from LA GRANDE BOUFFE (THE BIG FEAST) to gear up for my pal James Hancock's WRONG REEL podcast to watch and discuss no fewer that 13 of Joseph Losey's films. I've been waiting 25 years to dig into Losey's movies, and the result is as complicated as I expected. Losey's collaborations with Bertolt Brecht, Harold Pinter, Dirk Bogard, Jane Fonda, and Isabelle Huppert combine to exemplify a film artist free of judgement for the flawed thing that is human nature. James and I scratch the surface in this nearly two-hour podcast. The thrill of Cinema lies in discovery. Joseph Losey's movies offer up a lot of sticky choices.
