No katana-wielding turtles and no angry birds knocking down buildings under construction. Sorry, that’s our own integrity as serious journalists simply taking a stand. Across this line, YOU DO NOT… also dude, the indie scene was not looking much better according to the outside reviews. So in preparation for the upcoming documentary, De Palma, we’ve decided this week to take a look back at the very early career of the man, with Hi, Mom!, from 1970. Perhaps more interesting, this is pre-Mean Streets Robert De Niro; and man there is a lot going on in this film. Also as promised, we’ve got an all new top five list celebrating the shorter films of greatness. A small Watch List about robots and the cinematic state of A.I. rounds out this lovely little show.
As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!
