    CINEPUNX Episode 112: CLOSENESS (16) and BEANPOLE (19) or Streaming the Darkness

    LOOK AT US DOING ANOTHER EPISODE IN A REASONABLE AMOUNT OF TIME, WHAT THE HECK IS EVEN GOING ON? Welcome to Episode 112 of Cinepunx, your favorite degenerate movie podcast! On this episode Josh chose two very depressing Russian films for us to discuss, though mostly they just bummed us out, 2016’s Closeness and 2019’s Beanpole both directed by the young Kantemir Balagov This episode is a bit short because we found ourselves without a TON to say about these films, especially because we did not want to spoil Beanpole which you can still catch online streaming now on various platforms that support independent theaters. We do of course do the WACK AND ON TRACK gimmick and here is some of what we discussed We’re Here Bluey Perfume Genius The Magnetic Fields Regional Jurtice Center Bit Rivers Edge Spaceship Earth On The Waterfront Black Shirt Music charity drop   Thanks so much for listening!

    Cinepunx Episode 111: WAR (2019) with Robert Newsome of The Atomic Elbow

    EPISODE 111 IS HERE FOR YOUR LISTENING PLEASURE!! We were so excited and blessed to discuss 2019’s Bollywood action spectacular, and homerotic nationalistic propoganda, WAR with the man Robert Newsome. Besides hosting a real life internet radio show, Robert is the creator and proprietor of THE ATOMIC ELBOW, the first wrestling zine I ever checked out. This film is crazy and we definitely spoil it hard so I would recommend watching before you listen. We had a ton of fun talking with Robert, go ahead and follow him on the gram! There is, as always, a ton of things I could be linking too.

    CINEPUNX Episode 109: BIG NIGHT & THE LEGEND OF 1900- Our Feel Good Episode

    CINEPUNX Episode 109: BIG NIGHT & THE LEGEND OF 1900- Our Feel Good Episode

    AHOY THERE! I am sure I have used that one before, sorry y’all. WELCOME TO A BRAND NEW EPISODE OF THE ILLUSTRIOUS CINEPUNX PODCASTING PRODUCTION! On this episode Josh has decided to introduce us to two films he refers to as “Ivo Movies”, films he would watch with friend of the show Ivo Tomas again and again. This walk down cinema as comfort and nostalgia is, we hope, as distracting for you as it is for us! There is still a ton of talk about our current pandemic, so hopefully that does not bring you down too much. Of course we engage in our usual gimmicks though to be sure, there is far more WACK to discuss than ON TRACK Still, we manage to find the joy both in our time together and in the films Josh has chosen for us to discuss. If you haven’t seen them, we do engage in spoilers, so be forewarned. Ok basically not much else to say then be safe, we love you, watch out for each other, and please even in this time check out the network and tell people about the show. Thanks and know we are thinking about you all.

We are very likely the only brown, punk, film podcast in the world and if we are not, we challenge whoever you are to a dance off. On this plague season episode we are paying tribute to the work of the incomprable Max von Sydow by discussing two films of his we were previously unfamiliar with: The Night Visitor & Three Days of the Condor! Before that we discuss the insanity of our lives, our usual WACK AND ON TRACK gimmick, and some other delights. Do us a favor, and tell a friend. No links cause I dunno what to link to. I will say we are doing a fundraiser over at https://www.roughcutshirts.com/ To help folks during this tough time, we released Shivers and The Crazies designs. All proceeds go to charity. Other then that all we can say is a giant THANK YOU for listening. Please stay safe, wash your hands, keep your distance, and do NOT GIVE UP HOPE!! Do us a favor during these turbulent times, tell a friend about our show and all the shows on the network, and if you are one of the few people not financially wrecked right now, check out our patreon. Much love friends
