Episode 75: Event Horizon (1997)

Film chosen by listener Tom Bhaduri, introduced by Devlin Big thanks to Tom, who emailed this suggestion to us. Neither myself, Matt, nor Gali were big fans of this film in its late-90s video heyday, but we seemed to be the exceptions within our various friendship groups. Event Horizon was a true word-of-mouth, must-see film... Continue Reading →

Episode 74: Empire Records (1995)

Film chosen and introduced by Devlin If nothing else, this episode showed me just what a true cult object this film is.

Film chosen by Gali, introduced by Devlin I read a fantastic oral history of Donnie Darko which described the film as "everybody's first deep thought", which, while hyperbolic, does help describe the particular temporal space that I found this film in. Approaching 18, chafing at what I felt were the strictures of my small town,... Continue Reading →

Episode 66: Fatal Attraction (1987) REROTICA SERIES

Film chosen by Gali, introduced by Devlin For a film which formed such a core aspect of the burgeoning erotic thriller genre, establishing so many of its tropes (chief among which, the sexy other woman-turned-homewrecking violent stalker), Fatal Attraction features surprisingly little on-screen sex. But, the politics of sex, desire, monogamy, selfishness, wholly occupy the... Continue Reading →
