Independent filmmaking is what brought life back into cinema, and given that we primarily sought our educations in the medium based on the exploits of artists working outside the constructs of the studio system, its only fitting that we would finally get around to watching the first of John Cassavetes’s canon – possibly the first indie film #SilverDollar
We’ve started the year off with a fascinating thriller which a spoiler-free review sadly doesn’t do justice for, but as luck would have it, we have a separate show (this one) made for situations such as these. There’s a lot to ponder in this mind fuck of a rape flick; join us as we try to make sense of it all while praising its enigma.
I usually don’t have the balls to watch these kind of movies, so what better selection is there than something remembered for its killer balls? This film kinda has it all (except for explanations) and I’m still not sure what to make of it, but I hope you find our convo on Don Coscarelli’s late 70s classic dreamy.
The episode in which Steve and I disagree about the merits of a very bizarre, indie sex comedy. We cut the foreplay and jump right into it.
