    In extraordinary times, extraordinary measures must be taken. Such as watching a bunch of films at random and talking about them earlier in the month that we normally do. Hot takes incoming on Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, Greyhound, The Vast of Night, Palm Springs, Radioactive, The Old Guard, and A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.

    Spike Lee Part 3

    Spike Lee Part 3

    In the third part of our look at Spike Lee’s joints, we’ll be talking about a powerful documentary; a remake of a Korean film based on a Japanese Manga about hammers; an adaptation of a 2,400-year-old play; a scarcely believable, yet mostly true, tale of improbable undercover police work; and a latter day Kelly’s Heroes, though with more scruples.

    Spike Lee Part 1

    Spike Lee Part 1

    There are a number of notable film directors to have come from New York City, though some are particularly strongly associated with it, and with one borough in particular. Some of these filmmakers are short, bespectacled and often act in their own films. However, today we’re talking about one associated with Brooklyn, who isn’t a creep, and whose films we actually think are any good, so we know who that rules out.

    So, prompted by the recent release of _Da 5 Bloods_, we’ve decided to look at the work of Spike Lee for our main topic episode this month, though through a combination of an inability to suitably pare down a list and chronic procrastination, we’re spreading things out, declaring July 2020 “Spike Lee” month at Fuds on Film, and bringing you three episodes covering his work.

    We’re beginning in this episode, in an entirely perverse way, at the beginning, from Lee’s directorial feature debut, _She’s Gotta Have It_, up to his 1995 crime drama, _Clockers_. One other film from this period, _Jungle Fever_, was covered in our Wesley Snipes episode last year, and it’s probably also worth mentioning we’ve also covered Lee’s _Inside Man_ in a Compare and Contrast episode along with _Dog Day Afternoon_ - both episodes well worth checking out, of course.

Solid film review podcast

If the guys from Half In The Bag ever made a podcast (and were Scottish), it would sound like this. The hosts are very knowledgeable about film history and are clearly enthusiastic about the medium. A definite recommendation for movie-goers everywhere.

David Lynch Episode is Abysmal

I have 2 major criticisms of this episode that were so drastic for me that I couldn’t bring myself to listen to another installment.
1. It is not wise to dedicate an episode to a film director but not watch all of his work. Particularly with someone like Lynch, it is impossible to grasp the breadth of meaning behind his work if it hasn’t been entirely viewed.

2. They also left out where he’s more of a painter who happens to direct films and not just a film director. He’s an artist who operates on nearly every facet of art creation and films just happen to be one of them. I’m fact, he has been primarily doing painting, music, and furniture design for the past decade and a half The abstract ideas and his refusal to elaborate on most of them with regard to interpretation becomes more understandable- he is a post-modern surrealist who often operates in the abstract mood. Lynch is not everyone’s cup of tea and that is fine, but don’t pretend to understand or just write off what he does as objectively bad. I thought that was an arrogant, ignorant road to take. I turned it off when they said they had only seen two episodes of Twin Peaks. I can’t take this podcast seriously and I’ll never listen to it again.

Don’t Turn These Fuds Away!

I have yet to come across an episode from these fellas that isn’t enjoyable! They discuss a wide variety of films and always provide an engaging, intelligent, and often humorous discussion. There’s no need to listen through the episodes chronologically, but starting off with their opening episodes about their favorite films gives you a good orientation on the hosts’ tastes. Highly recommended!
