    Episode 52 - City on Fire

    Episode 52 - City on Fire

    In this episode of the show, we are marking the 30th anniversary of the premiere of Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs by talking about one of the more important pieces of inspiration behind his auspicious debut, Ringo Lam's City on Fire. Over the course of our wild conversation you will hear us talk about the rogue Hong Kong filmmaking pilosophy, the many points of symmetry between Lam and Tarantino, the haphazardly innocent direction of Lam's giving the movie a homemade feel, Chow Yun-fat's unsung charisma, the characteristic tonal inconsistencies giving City on Fire its unique character and much more.

    Retrospective 01 - Go, The Boondock Saints, The Way of the Gun (TEASER)

    Retrospective 01 - Go, The Boondock Saints, The Way of the Gun (TEASER)

    Here's a short teaser of our brand new show Uncut Gems Retrospectives where on a monthly basis we will get together and discuss a bunch of films tied around a specific theme. In this inaugural episode, we are tying our selection to the 30th anniversary of the premiere of Reservoir Dogs and we are talking about three movies whose existence is in no small part owed to the meteoric rise of Quentin Tarantino and other luminaries of the 90s Indie Revolution. Thus, we are discussing Doug Liman's Go, Troy Duffy's The Boondock Saints and Christopher McQuarrie's The Way of the Gun.

    Episode 51 - Sorcerer

    Episode 51 - Sorcerer

    In this episode of the show, we are transported into the 1970s to discuss one of the most underrated masterpieces of its era, William Friedkin's Sorcerer. Joined by a special guest Sarah Buddery who also happens to be the world's foremost Roy Scheider fan, we embark on a journey to talk about the perils of carrying dynamite through a jungle and battling fate both within the narrative and outside it. Over the course of our wild conversation you will hear us talk about how much of a miracle it was for this film to come together, how it was bizarrely disregarded at the time of its release, how it functions as a multi-layered nesting doll of allegorical interpretations, how it substitutes the Hitchcockian slant of The Wages of Fear with suspense conjured by Friedkin's docu-style verite filmmaking, and much, much more!

    Also, if you like this show, be sure to head to our brand new Patreon (patreon.com/uncutgemspod) to listen to a tie-in bonus show where we also talked about Henri-Georges Clouzot's The Wages of Fear in detail.

    Episode 50 - Angel Heart

    Episode 50 - Angel Heart

    In this episode of the show, we are drenching ourselves in the combination of a sticky atmosphere of the Deep South, the gloom of the occult and unsavoury amounts of chicken blood as we talk about Alan Parker's Angel Heart. Over the course of our crazy conversation you will hear us talk about Alan Parker's approach to adapting a novel, Mickey Rourke as the star of the 80s, the dreadfully subliminal horror of this movie, a possibility that a good chunk of the story doesn't even take place in reality, Robert De Niro's turn as a mysteriously long-haired and long-fingernailed Louis Cyphre and... the many ways one could peel a hard-boiled egg.

    Episode 49 - End of Days

    In this episode of the show, we are leaving 2021 behind by battling Satan to the death in a 1999 Arnie vehicle titled End of Days. Over the course of our discussion you'll hear us nit-pick the logic of this movie, talk about the disappearance of the movie star phenomenon, discuss Arnold's turn as a thematic epilogue to an entire era of the action hero supremacy, mention a few things about inspirations driving the filmmakers and, naturally, you will hear us put on our best Arnie impressions as well. And that's not even the half of it... 

    Happy New Year!
