The MOVIE CLUB Podcast: Production Design Gone Wild Edition is now available at the Movie Club Podcast website. Episode #22 features lengthy *spoiler-filled* (if you can say that for either of these films!) discussions of John Boorman’s post-hippie meltdown envisioned as a science-fiction epic Zardoz and Mike Hodges’s camp explosion of the 1930s comic/serial Flash Gordon. The guest contributors for this episode are Film Junk‘s Sean Dwyer and The Documentary Blog‘s Jay Cheel, and your local Row Three writers Andrew James, Marina Antunes and Kurt Halfyard. Who will embrace the oddity/flamboyance/earnestness/garishness/silliness (take your pick!) of both of these films? Who will throw up their hands in despair for cinema? Find out, dear listener, find out!
The Movie Club is as much for the listeners as it is the contributors. Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments section over at the Movie Club Page. (Comments are turned off on this post.) The Next Episode will be recorded in November (maybe, but do not hold us to that; regularity is not our strong suit!) and the films on discussion will be Crash: Of both the Paul Haggis and the David Cronenberg variety.
