    Episode 95: SORRY, WRONG NUMBER (1948)

    Episode 95: SORRY, WRONG NUMBER (1948)

    Orson Welles called SORRY, WRONG NUMBER "the greatest single radio script ever written". It does not translate so well to film. But it IS really fun to examine with 72 years of perspective.

    How did the ways we communicate change when we brought telephones, formerly an element of commercial and industrial society, into our homes? What kinds of stories and performances were created when we chose to let other people's ghosts haunt our living spaces? Why don't we see Burt Lancaster's feet?

    Episode 94: TO LIVE AND DIE IN L.A. (1985) [feat. Seth Zarate]

    Featuring special guest Seth Zarate (@snzarate)!

    Our Friedkin series comes to a close with TO LIVE AND DIE IN L.A., a cynical forebearer of the modern buddy cop movie – a slick, seething, uncompromising movie with something up its sleeve and a lot on its mind.

    Episode 93: SORCERER (1977)

    Episode 93: SORCERER (1977)

    If THE FRENCH CONNECTION (1971) is about the futility of the chase, SORCERER is about escapes as hollow as they are narrow. In this episode, we discuss the movie’s relationship to bootstraps capitalism, its contemporary reception, and how nobody really gets out alive. Then, we get a little genre-obsessed in another edition of Cody’s Noteys!

    Episode 92: THE FRENCH CONNECTION (1971)

    Episode 92: THE FRENCH CONNECTION (1971)

    THE FRENCH CONNECTION is known for one great chase scene, but it’s actually a constant pursuit of the self through grimy Brooklyn, breezy Marseilles, and the dark hearts of evil men.

    Theme: "Raindrops" by Huma-Huma/"No Smoking" PSA by John Waters. Outro music: "Subway" by Don Ellis from THE FRENCH CONNECTION (1971).

    Episode 89: THE INVISIBLE MAN (1933)

    Episode 89: THE INVISIBLE MAN (1933)

    The titular invisible man might not be struggling with any deeper discomforts than the madness brought on by the drug that makes his skin disappear, but that might be traumatizing enough. It's definitely enough to whip the residents of Iping, Sussex, into a proper frenzy – along with, you've gotta imagine, moviegoers in 1933.

    While we find it hard to knock 90-year-old movies for not being very insightful, THE INVISIBLE MAN moves so quickly to the exploitative monster movie vibes that it can feel a little… see-through.

Great, Dedicated Movie Lovers

Always thoughtful movie analysis from the crew! Thanks.

Endearing, interesting, smart.

The hosts of this show are simultaneously incredibly endearing and affectionate eye roll dorky. The first episode takes about 20 minutes to hit its stride but once it does it’s engaging, interesting, and informative.

The hosts themselves give a point of view that feels really genuine and knowledgeable. This combined with the tie to a Minneapolis icon like the Trylon and a dynamic that can only be found when longtime friends talk about things they love makes this podcast singular and awesome.

Give it a listen.
