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.

LAST TANGO IN PARIS — BERNARDO BERTOLUCCI

Mike broke out Wavy Tropics Guava Pale Ale from Kills Boro Brewing for our discussion of Bertolucci's LAST TANGO IN PARIS even if we had planned to do Lars von Trier's MANDERLAY for this, our 99th episode. Check out my silent shout-out to THE STRYPES if you go to ColeSmithey.com. Bon appetite!

NATURAL BORN KILLERS — OLIVER STONE

Mike baits Cole with a film Cole has never been able to get through until now. What's drinking you might ask. Cole picked HOP STOOPID from Lagunitas Brewing Company. Is this Oliver Stone's worst film? Cole thinks so.
