Barbershop + Wall Street

Barbershop + Wall Street

Differing economic headaches. Decade-specific economic problems. Tangible goods and services and abstract investment. Black ownership as depicted on the south side of beautiful Chicago, Illinois. Ice Cube returns in another great movie that no one expects to be great. Well, no one on Double Feature. Well, ok, no one on half of Double Feature. Never underestimate Cedric the Entertainer. Easy money and hard times. Money, sleeping, and Oliver Stone’s 1987 film Wall Street. What do the economic representatives have in common? No no, besides being white. Gordon Gecko is not to be idolized. Making money moving pieces around a spreadsheet. Oliver Stone running around a…call center, or whatever Continue reading

The Breakfast Club + The Hateful Eight

The Breakfast Club + The Hateful Eight

Two writer directors take on social interactions trapped in a room. A pack of individuals spend that day together, learning to rise above their own differences in sharing the human experience with their fellow man. Or killing each other maybe. These high school cliques certainly have a very white thing in common. Learning about John Hughes through one of his most popular and lasting films, The Breakfast Club. Everyone gets punched by their father and no one really likes it. When adults talk. The greater purpose of learning to live and love your peers regardless of class – to distract yourself from how fucking terrible growing up is. The eighth Tarantino film: The Hateful Eight. Big black cock. Double Feature finds a fresh new appalling. Quentin Tarantino gets better and better. Story telling Continue reading

W. + Fahrenheit 9/11

W. + Fahrenheit 9/11

Double Feature begins a Year 10 journey into American presidents and propaganda. The presidency of George W. Bush through fact and fiction. Well, probably more of the second one. Oilver’s Stone’s W. from 2008. That’s the letter “w” and then a period. What an awful name for internet searchability. No one really though about that back then. Anyways, an Iraq-critical film revolving around Oil and not so much 9/11. Speaking of not so searchable, how do internet search engine’s treat 9/11 vs 911 or 9-11? iTunes tried to name the file with a 9_11. These are the things that fill Eric’s nightmares. As if that weren’t enough – Michael Moore’s films are embarrassing. Continue reading

The Greasy Strangler + The Happiness of the Katakuris

The Greasy Strangler + The Happiness of the Katakuris

Absurd films with horror bents. The Greasy Strangler pounds it in. Just pounding. Just hitting that point over and over. And over. By pounding. The point. Pounding it in. Until pounding looks strong on the display. Pounding. Is that even how it’s spelled? Pounding? What does that word really even mean? What’s even happening here? Michael learns all the secrets of The Greasy Strangler and it turns out nothing is going to help. Jim Hosking is a bullshit artist. The Happiness of the Katakuris and the happiness of Takashi Miike. Doing a film on a sort of dare. An alternative to funding. Humanism: it’s probably in there! The Katakuris live on (until everyone dies). Continue reading

Nights of Cabiria + American Honey

Nights of Cabiria + American Honey

Women making their way through life with men, and maybe better without them. Slice of life films focusing on finding individualism and a sense of self in uncommon communities. Two release weekends separated by fifty-nine years. Women in Nights of Cabiria has plenty of fun nighttime activities, and they’ve gotten even better since the fifties. Do the characters of American Honey deserve sympathy? So not the point of the film, but let’s explore for a minute anyways. Michael tried to get Eric to kill himself again. Eric out-poverties Michael. Continue reading

Pacific Rim + InnerSpace

Pacific Rim + InnerSpace

Size and scale in cinema. How do you keep perspective when everyone’s face is the size of a television? How IMAX impacts filmmaking, or at least the future vision of a movie. Do not miss Charlie Day and Ron Perlman together. Just don’t do that to yourself. Cancel the apocalypse! Saul Williams not appearing in Pacific Rim. InnerSpace, have you seen this? Coffee with Joe Dante. Reversing Pacific Rim does not suddenly make InnerSpace. Joe Dante movies might be as much about Joe Dante as anything else, and that’s actually really fucking cool. Continue reading

The Autopsy of Jane Doe + The Witch

The Autopsy of Jane Doe + The Witch

The new series begins right here. Two recent horror efforts answer “why horror” in spectacular fashion. A slow decent from the reality of tonight’s theme to the extremes of it. The straight concept mystery that keeps on giving. Another oven full of witches. Evil in practice and in metaphors. A movie not about the Salem witch trials (and a whole lot that is). The subtitles can’t save you now. Scares upon repeat viewing.When your best friend is actually a goat. This episode is dedicated to Black Phillip. The era of delicious begins, deliciously. Continue reading

Love + Nymphomaniac

Love + Nymphomaniac

The longest orgasm in podcast history. What is the line between art and pornography? An unpopular opinion. Sex is a dangerous thing. It changes your life. Consent, monogamy, a depression trilogy fuck-epic and the intersection of love and sex. Sexual exclusivity as the default. Nymphomaniac’s two parts should be viewed as a single film. Biological acceptance versus emotional consent. Starting with consent and finishing without it. Infidelity and experimentation. Continue reading

White Dog + Blazing Saddles

White Dog + Blazing Saddles

A conversation on race in America from the last two people to learn the results of the disastrous election. Like, actually. Also, an art problem: Racial satire + enough time = film that just looks racist. Can racists in 2017 be saved or is it time to move on to more productive challenges? Racist dogs, on the surface and far below. Double Feature Year 9: The year of rape, sexual assault, blurry lines in erotica and also dogs. Just regular type dogs. When the racism pendulum swings the back the other direction. The inevitability of human hatred – to channel or ignore? Natural, nurture, and who is to blame for a person’s racism. How Blazing Saddles suffers (or triumphs) from today’s freshly racist America. Does the intention of art matter? The notion of not considering the artist and only considering the art is a complete fantasy. Continue reading
