Cinecast Episode 444 – Gorgeously Sleazy

And the summer theatrical season continues to be of zero interest to our heroes. Luckily the De Palma retrospective is about to kick off at the TIFF Lightbox and continues all summer long. So we’ll loosely follow that schedule for the time being. Last week we reviewed De PalmaNiro in Hi, Mom and this week we keep going with the Travolta vehicle, Blow Out. From there, we move on to a little more delightfully trashy fare from William Friedkin and Tony Scott. Lastly Danny Boyle never gets enough credit for his amazingness.

As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!

We’re now available on Google Play!

For what it’s worth, the celebration going on in Blow Out is the US Bicentennial.

Also, this.

God Bless SCTV. (All of their Bergman parodies are hilarious too)

I’m pretty sure I watched Blow Out about 5 or so years ago because of a discussion about it on this podcast. I like both Blow Out and The Conversation, but have more fun with Blow Out.

I agree with Revenge, it really is a shit movie.

Didn’t Friedkin talk on the WTF podcast about how Cruising was based on a true story? Perhaps I’m confusing it with a different movie.

CRUISING is based on a book by Gerald Walker, now that book may be in part true, or not, but it seems to be a fictional novel.

Great podcast, these shoot the shit episodes are my favorite. Ricochet had the most insane John Lithgow performance, all i gotta say is, phone book armor prison fight.

Another lover of Ricochet here. It’s been ages since I saw that film, heck probably since the theatre.

(And thanks for the super kind words! We enjoy doing these shows, a lot.)
