Just The Pods Vol. 12





I BLAME DENNIS HOPPER - Allan Arkush
Illeana Douglas' podcast is great and this is one of my favorite episodes so far. Allan Arkush is one of my favorite directors and an amazing cinephile that I got to talk to several times when I worked at a video store in Los Angeles in the early 2000s. So of course it's a delight to hear he and Illeana talk movies - both are extraordinary cineastes and thus it is a delightful chat. Highly recommended.
This podcast is also great in that it turned me onto one of my favorite things from 2018 so far. Allan Arkush telling his life story to camera in chapters on Facebook. Just hang out and listen to him talk about his life experience and the music and movies that affected him. Watch ALL the chapters!

SOMEONE ELSE'S MOVIE - Clio Barnard - PERFORMANCE
Just what it says on the label: Each week, an actor, director, screenwriter, critic or industry observer will discuss a film that he or she admires, but had no hand in making. Hosted as genially as possible by Norm Wilner. This week's show features filmmaker Clio Barnard (DARK RIVER) talking about the mesmerizing collaboration between Nicolas Roeg, Donald Cammell and Mick Jagger - PERFORMANCE. A true cult film and a cinematic experience like no other.

THE MOVIES THAT MADE ME - Keith Gordon
Filmmaker/Actor Keith Gordon joins Josh Olson and Joe Dante to discuss "Political" films and it is a fascinating chat to be sure. Gordon is always interesting, intelligent and thought-provoking in all the podcasts I've heard him on and this is no exception. Lots of interesting films on his list.

WRONG REEL - The Cinema of the Fab Four
James Hancock is joined by WR regular Rob Cotto to talk about the Beatles and their ventures into movies. I know I mention this show a lot on this column, but they keep having these great episodes so I can't help myself!
