    The Red Shoes: Powell and Pressburger Part 1

    The Red Shoes: Powell and Pressburger Part 1

    Everyone--even you, dear listener--can name a film that they've read about, heard about, and meant to see--but never got around to seeing.  Such is the case with The Red Shoes, Powell and Pressburger's 1948 film about the triumphs and demands of following one's passion.  What a movie!  Mike and Dan talk about their first reactions and then get into a discussion of how the film depicts the process of artistic creation without falling into the common trap of never showing us the product.  The film suggests different ways to approach one's talent, such as sacrificing everything to it or using one's experiences to fuel it. Scorsese, De Niro, Sinatra, Whiplash, and even Phil Jackson come up in the conversation.  So tap that baton and begin from the top!

    To Die For

    To Die For

    "What's the point of doing anything worthwhile if there's nobody watching?"  So asks Suzanne Stone, the seductive embodiment of television in To Die For, Gus Van Sant's 1995 satire of celebrity culture and those who would do anything to reach the paradise of being on TV--or have a million followers on Instagram.  In the Season 7 premiere, Mike and Dan talk about how well Nicole Kidman plays dumb--something rarely done well in movies--and how the film's oddest scene is one of genuine emotion.  Sunset Blvd., The King of Comedy, and, of course, Network all enter the conversation.  So stop watching Teens Speak Out and give this a listen!

    Die Hard

    Die Hard

    For the season 6 finale, Mike and Dan talk about Die Hard, the 1988 action movie that set the template for all action movies afterwards to follow. They don't debate whether or not it's a Christmas movie--it is--but instead talk about the film as a time machine, why Hans Gruber is such a great villain, and why John McClane has to bleed.  Welcome to the party, pal!

    It Happened on Fifth Avenue

    It Happened on Fifth Avenue

    Everyone has seen A Christmas Carol, The Bishop's Wife, and It's a Wonderful Life--but Mike wanted to talk about a lesser-known Christmas film that he thinks deserves more viewers: Roy Del Ruth's It Happened on Fifth Avenue (1947).  Join Mike and Dan as they talk about what makes the film so weird, compelling, and satisfying--and how the film asks its viewers to think about the ways that you can only hurt the ones you love.  So open that manhole, climb on down, put on the millionaire's dressing gown, light a cigar, and give this one a listen!
