S03E06: Before Sunrise (1995)

This is the second week running we’ve done an Audience Selection. And you know what… why not!

Lynn Montgomery-Hawke selected this little Richard Linklater ditty from 1995. Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and Céline (Julie Delpy) cross paths and spend just 24 hours together in Vienna.

She was worried about what Gordy would make of it, however she suggested she was sure Cross would like it. How will they roll with it? Hope you enjoy the episode Lynn, and also to everyone else out there, we had a great time recording it!

As always, please review us on iTunes and tell your friends!

S03E05: Duel (1971)

Another audience selection this week. So it’s a thank you Dave Brindle for his nice little selection of some very early Spielberg action with Duel. Cross and Gordy talk it out and as usual end up off piste at many different points. Though a thoroughly enjoyable chat it was. Hope you all enjoy the episode and especially Dave! As always, please feel free to share, like, comment!

The Neon Demon – A Feast For The Ears

Although the movie itself fiercely divided critical opinion, one thing all rational beings agreed on is that Cliff Martinez’s score to The Neon Demon was pretty fucking great. Reminiscent of ’80s Tangerine Dream with a sprinkling of Eno’s ambient works, it’s a proper treat for any discerning movie listener.

An early member of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Martinez began scoring in the late eighties and first came to our attention with his excellent collaborations with Steven Soderbergh. He’s been consistently great ever since. Sadly it was recently announced that he will no longer to be scoring the upcoming Logan movie – the somewhat bland Marco Beltrami will take his place – hopefully this doesn’t mean that the movie itself has been similarly defanged.

In any event, here’s about 25 minutes of the Neon Demon to enjoy:

Sellers Talks to Parky

Peter Sellers always maintained that the secret to his chameleon-like performances was that he had no discernible personality of his own.

Here he is appearing on UK talk show Parkinson in 1974, demonstrating those impeccable impersonations but also talking candidly about his upbringing, The Goons and Sophia Loren amongst many other topics.
