    Arts and Crap : Ganja and Hess

    Arts and Crap : Ganja and Hess

    The gang is back! This week (or however long it's been)'s episode is on GANJA & HESS (also known as BLOOD COUPLE and DOUBLE POSSESSION depending on where or when you didn't see it ... ) Bill Gunn's 1973 take on a Black Vampire film, most recently remade by Spike Lee as DA SWEET BLOOD OF JESUS. Is it a horror movie? A piece of avant-garde cinema? A bit of Blaxpoitation fun? All of these, or none? Good questions but we focus on the most important one: Is it ART? Or is it CRAP?

    Starring Duane Jones (NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD), Marlene Clark (THE LANDLORD, SANFORD & SON), and Gunn himself in a pivotal role.

    Arts and Crap ep 24 My Winnipeg

    Arts and Crap ep 24 My Winnipeg

    BACK! BY (what should have been) POPULAR DEMAND! The ARTS AND CRAP crew make Darrell "Anti-Life" Taylor take another bite at the maple-flavored apple that is the oeuvre of Canadian avant-garde auteur , Guy "One of the greatest film directors in history" Maddin! Long-time listeners know we covered Maddin's feature debut, TALES FROM THE GIMLI HOSPITAL, in episode 5 and Darrell was . . . not happy. After viewing this 2007 masterpiece, which starred Ann Savage (What a woman!, Two-man Submarine, Saved by the Bell), and Lewis Negin (Sissy-Boy Slap-Party, The Forbidden Room), did Darrell revise his opinion of the celebrated cinematic innovator? Or is he still a friggin' idiot?*

    Also, what did Sheila "Friend of the Working Man" Villari think? And why does Chris "Kindness, love, butterflies, rainbows, peace, and stuff" Kipiniak put up with either of them? Listen . . . and find out!

Brilliant

This is a cool switch. This podcast reviews films that are not mainstream that I am interested in. Even if you think you won't like the films, the interactions between the two hosts is great. Impress your friends - listen to the podcast so you can talk about some cool films...
