    Episode 105 - Space Rage

    Episode 105 - Space Rage

    In this episode of the show, we are talking about Space Rage, a microbudget space western from 1985 starring Richard Farnsworth. Over the course of our conversation you will hear us talk about what makes cheap trashy movies likeable and equally what makes some of them unappealing, the power of passion behind the camera making up for budgetary shortcomings, the long tradition of low-fi knock-offs of big blockbusters and how - if at all - Space Rage fits within the legacy of Mad Max.

    John Cassavetes Marathon 01 - Shadows (teaser)

    Here's a short teaser of the first episode of the 2023 edition of Uncut Gems Marathons where we will - one by one - re-trace the directorial career of John Cassavetes. In this show, we are officially starting with his 1959 debut feature, Shadows. Over the course of our conversation, you will hear us talk about Cassavetes as a cultural icon, the movie as an early example of indie filmmaking, the guerilla style of how it was made, the pros and cons of improvising a script and why - at least to some of us - this movie is like jazz.

    Episode 104 - Spacehunter

    Episode 104 - Spacehunter

    In this episode of the show, we are talking about Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone as part of our 80s space western January expedition. Over the course of our conversation you will hear us talk about how this movie fits into the legacy of Star Wars, how it borrows a thing or two from The Road Warrior, and how it sets up a few things for Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome to draw from. We also talk about Ernie Hudson's muscles, Peter Strauss as Harrison Ford you can afford and the problematic nature of aggressive shampooing your sidekicks among other things.
