"mr ben buckingham" Discussed on The Projection Booth Podcast

"Welcome to the projection booth I'm your host Mike waitress me once again is Ms. Heather Drain Elo also back in the booth as Mr Ben Buckingham Aloha oe. Shocked. Tober. Twenty twenty continues with a look at the nineteen eighty film from director Kevin Connor Motel Hell. It's the story of farmer. Vinson played by the an incomparable warrior Calhoun from events and his sister. Ida Run the motel. Hello but doing that. One thing just can't make ends meet. So he makes his ends meet with meet his smoked meats and it takes all kinds of critters to make farmer Vincent's Fritters we will be spoiling this fellow as we go along. So if you haven't seen motel hell, please turn off the podcast and come back after you have. So Heather win was the first time you saw motel hell and what did you think? That's not hell came into my existence very early I'm being a little girl and seeing like the videos store and just the title alone it made it sound like the scariest like most chats who serve ever in I finally got to see it when I was a little bit older still kid on cable and really enjoyed it ended up not being nearly as gruesome as I thought even at that age you know. It seemed a little more taper than I expected in revisiting it through adult is I find it still very enjoyable I think worry Calhoun is. The man in it he's just the the May. Could make anything just charismatic and charming and compelling. What was your first experience with it? This was one of the many many films that I've read about in Phil- Holidays Encyclopedia of Horror Films and had never been able to find a copy of the Estela cinema in repertory cinema in. Melbourne. That I worked at forbid many many years ago had a thirty five millimeter prints and I found out the day after a screening contacted them about it and was told the was cactus and that was the last time it would play. So I then had to wait until finally came out on DVD his trailer which would have been eighteen seventeen years ago said, my first data minded extra was on Davide ended absolutely lived up to all of my hopes and dreams for it was just exactly what I wanted, and now seen it numerous times article on Blu Ray in have even taken pardon screening at at a horror marathon at the still in a digital version. So it's it's film that has really been a big part of my life even though ever divinely Z. it. was part of my life as well. My folks aren't really into horror movies are they liked movies but the liked certain movies and they would just kind of glomming onto those like the rocky movies and the Godfather Movies those were my dad's thing Shirley. Valentine. That was my mom's thing. But for whatever reason I, remember them watching this movie or talking about it afterwards and my dad describing things like the. People all in the garden with the bags on their head and it was like Oh. Yeah. Then he goes up and he pulls the bag off a one guy said and he's like, no, you're not ready at and puts the bag back over and then they would even do the whole meets meet a man's gotta eat and it's just like what is this thing that you guys are talking about and it? Took so long before I finally washed it because I was kind of afraid because of the cover because of the name of it but I love were Calhoun I loved him in the Angel Films I loved Him in Messiah of Evil and I was super excited to see Nancy partisans and something else I mean the cast of this movie is fantastic and when I finally sat down to watch it Gosh. Probably, only about a year or so ago. I was so impressed and what a how weird mixture of comedy and horror I did not expect this movie to be as funny as it was the thing is real dad gateway drug for this fool 'cause my dad was normally rea like what are you bringing to me now he's like Rory Calhoun I love Murray Calhoun every watch Eddie loved the film. Yeah I feel like it is a lot of aspects of the suck people into this field with if they're not in a mind to it was an image of the final sequence with Ping. Hades. In reading about the the heads in the ground, it's such a but you just should have the DVD to someone of Yeah it looks to be in our colored is that The Guy did all those the pump up your sweet and suddenly watching it with your parents they like out of the get here speaking of data's I don't know if you guys are GonNa Greek now this fat I think it's safe to say that were Calhoun as a total gill in this. I won't disagree, I'M NOT DISAGREEING all team in these days just about anything else are the STOIC mummy. I Love I. Love. Clint Eastwood's earlier. But I feel like later on, he just become kind of dislike. Republican. Mummy, how do you? How do you handle? How do you handle promises that you've made when you're running for election and how do you handle? How do you handle? I mean, what do you say to people do? You just What do you mean shut up? Yeah Calvin has so much more personality and energy in this than anything Eastwood did like eighty onwards I think absolutely and I'm so Mike I'm so glad you mentioned amazing turn in the movies and the fact that he's an angel to Susan Tyrel. It's like I even me as before year old went cast that. That combination strange things I was looking at the actors in this that I nerve most of them by name from his film, but as I looked at what they were doing. It's just this perfect kind of prism of films that I've always meant to say but haven't seen I've seen almost nothing else before Kelvin when anti postle I think I've seen more fables with Wolfman Jack Kennedy than anybody else in this film. which is amazing. Inventions a lot about the kind of watch. Wolfman Jack not to go too far ahead if Mike musical suggestions for the end of the show, you could play clap for the Wolfman. I don't know if I can take that song. That's fair. Shall we get into kind of the mates of the plot the smoked meats if you will it's an interesting mash up of a lot of different things I talked about how they run out tell. So we got a little bit of psycho going on we've got the cannibalism angle. You're not even like watching this film again, I tried to put everything that I knew of it out of my mind yesterday when I re watched that and justice trying to figure out. Where are the beets when it comes to cannibalism and Wendy we finally like wine is it revealed how is it revealed? It's an interesting thing to have that in there and I remember they're kind of being cannibalism in the first Texas chainsaw. But I remember much more in Texas chainsaw to and I almost feel like Texas chainsaw to was more informed by this movie than the original Texas, chainsaw I totally see that especially his the eighties were such a weird time for through comedy horror hybrids not warning the seventies or making probably dated back Abbott and Costello meet Frankenstein by the as you seem to be kind of a hotbed really Transylvania six, five, thousand bland. I. Just watched it for the first time two weeks ago that was. I was not a fan of that movie. Breaks I was one of those bills keyed I public ten thousand times for some reason six years ago the White House Maiden Mc podcast carriers and we both loved it. It was like, yes, is still great and I I think the next best hates not somebody he's public starring plastic competency for loved it to the body. So you'll understand is definitely it's divisive film but I stand by as as a work of comedic genius which along we the You, Hey, jeff has a bitter Michael Richards performance than anything he didn't Seinfeld and I will die on this hill. I'M NOT GONNA disagree with your I love both. UNJUSTIFIED BELLONA entrance come on my. Serve nine comedic performance was so mad. He just he turns into Chico Marx basically when he gets.

Actually did all the talk about turvy with how he was originally signed on to direct this film and so many people point to his connections between it in Aden alive at the crazy towel a backwoods thing in Costanzo massacre with cannibalism in rural aspect. But for me, my perception of Taibbi hoopoe completely changed when I saw spontaneous combustion and he's early short the highest. woman makes Jerry Donte doing his looney tunes martyred.

"Show. People pay good money to see this movie. When they go out to a theater, they want close sodas. Popcorn and no masters in the projection booth. Have you went pretend podcasting isn't boring. saw. Welcome to the projection booth I'm your host Mike. White join me once again is MS calendar. Also, back in the booth as Mr Ben Buckingham Good to be checked timber twenty twenty continues with a look at your iheart. Jonah, released in nineteen seventy, two, the film stars Eva. Eva both. Victoria and Clara Trag. Two sisters who are driven apart by their father's will and the jealousy of Clara by Victoria we've talked about hurts in the past including his incredible film, The cremator and as for as subversive as that film was, it was actually more Jonah that got him into more trouble. We'll talk about that and more including spoilers as we go along. So cat when was the first time you saw Morgan and what did you think this never second run DVD. They need to stop paying me commission whenever they put this out on. DVD, which was quite a while ago now think Kinda WanNA say t finding the knowing but I'm not sure anyways total blind by and I really dislike the cover. That looks a bit trippy says everything about me I just love it obviously have gothic stuff nine of the reading wheat conducted in Gothic and this is like the perfect example of that type of Gothic which does not she end up home film alot is just being one of my favorite tack films ever since and how about you bad. When I was working with the Czech and Slovak film. Festival. Austrailia we did a year I heard active and they double fate. Should we oil lamps which obviously the perfect double because it has the same lead actress and also features epic who is also in? Mogi on now I missed that screening but several people in US went to it and then kept telling me I had to watch it sir like cat instead of saying thirty five millimeter is on the second run TV Day I wasn't quite sure what to make because I definitely appreciated the same gun elements that but it's a film you Kinda you have to really say it twice before he can start to get your head around because it is it's a unique one I remember seeing this on vhs forever ago and this was actually title that we used to sell on. Super Happy Fun Dot Com during my dark days as a bootlegger and manage to I. Think I had a Shitty vhs and then eventually a dvd of this came out before the second run one this was actually coming out in Czechoslovakia and I helped Mary the subtitles from one version to another again i. just this weird relationship with the movie where I saw it but it didn't really register with me because I was there translating all of the net translating, taking the transcribing the subtitles from the vhs onto an rt adding them to the DVD because that's what I do for fun. The thrilling world of Post. Production. It's fantastic and boy oh boy, do I get upset if whenever I see like misspellings or grammatical errors inside of subtitles. But thank goodness that the second run DVD of this looks fantastic and the subtitles pristine. You're right. This is it's so trippy in this place so much into some of the things that I'm always talking about on the podcast. I'm always about doubling and mirrors and all of this, and this film has that in spades and talk about gorgeous. It just looks so good and I think this was the first time that hurts has worked with Yaroslavsky Chetta he initially was supposed to work with him way back when they did. The pros. A yeah and he was snapped because he wasn't Fahmi because he was CR SIDA that I was hilarious to me what I found that out that the Yaroslava done all of pills not not do it hurts because he was from the WHO was the Kademi of puppetry studied pepe tree studied production design, and he won't eat you out she go to family and study film, but they would like no, you call do that make the state or wherever you call St. As part of that whole new wave, he was like always outsider and then he was a Slovakian June. So was an the whole proxy scene even though then he started to work So he goes into film we talked about this recently my can Sam Degan on transport from paradise he go in just by Hassling Zip, nick, renage to. Give him a bright. So Ish, we'd we've heard even though he wasn't didn't sink particularly better. I think he has a thing with the new waivers because they treat him really Bosley in a way kind of snapped him and then by the time he comes city Mogi Arnot and obviously he's done the cremator in these. acclaimed. Then could share is like oh? Yeah. I totally want to work on. The measure of him that he saw was the fast person for the job, and so he just dropped his ego and said, no, you know because he knew he would be the what he wanted experimental. It just goes to show you an his now sold has admittedly he did in an interview. He did say that the episode that he was meant to be in pearls of the day, the junk shop instead of being perils of the deep, which didn't get much of showering in cinemas in. Much of Czechoslovakia he's short was put before a German film that was really popular. He's actually go. So I think it does thing he was dropped from pills of the D. because they thought it was too long. So he was Kinda. Kicked out of that is wow. So you know the anyway manifesto film it does as the ego a little bit. When you know that you'll feel has been seen by more of your human than the NFL out of at I had recently seen pills the deep and I gotta say I think the junk Shop is a quite a bit better than anything in the date. So I think he probably had that on his side for feeling good as well. Watching pills a day, which is for the most part, quite a straightforward film. Visually, there's not a loss of a Yaroslava real like showing us on display. Of course, he did daisies, diamonds of the nod which two of the Mars unbelievably striking visual films, not just the Sixties but the whole twentieth century. Married. To Vera heated UVA at the time and then they kind of broke up within the seventies. So he's no, he's like. There is no agreed experimental especially varies DJ, Paradise. He did a show you saw part of that whole movement and they were married and then everything is so broken down by the time you get to me on. Hits because he's like the ultimate side, turn any into reference in which I think on the second randy. He he wasn't really political filmmaker either that he just loved Gothic in fiery tales and Hora and his closest thing that you get to chat horror director because they didn't make horror films dislike Soviet Union it's like no horror films. In Czechoslovakia no horror films in Soviet Union cinema more fantasy based, and he used fantasy use the fairytale to make his own horror will the closest thing to it so it's not like all horror although he's obviously a wire of it comes from this pace one of my passions overseas gothic and you gotta sit strain of Gothic the eastern European, and it's a bit like the French strain of gothic where it's not like our British or European gothic that sperry four more. The bram stoker the Mary shelley straight or more straight narratives. Eastern European stuff. It's surreal. Look at something body battery in a week if one does is a perfect example comes from a book from that same movement. It's very surreal that was the thing that comes up and it constantly in Russian gothic other Eastern European gothic. It's so weird and surreal. So I think if you come to Mogi honor with I understanding and he's always choice stories this is based on a story Santa Grin Jesse. Mohana. Just he's very surreal, very strange almost like mute pieces and nothing night gothic that we used to from universal in hammer from those classic books..

"Again. Is Ms just fired. Hello also back in the booth is Mr Ben Buckingham. Our appreciation of one thousand nine hundred sixty nine continues what they look at Terro issues. Horrors of malformed. Men based on the ratings of Edogawa Rambo. The movie tells the tale of Hero Suitca. Hitomi played by Tara Yoshida when we first see him. He's locked up in an insane asylum. And things only go downhill from there. We will be spoiling this movie. So if you haven't seen it before please stop the podcast and go watch it. We will still be here so Ben. When was the first time you saw horrors of malformed men? And what did you think I was trying to remember where I I came across this. Because it's just kind of a film that I feel like I've always been aware of while doing some research. I found that the first international reference to discussion of it was in the Fil Hadi's encyclopedia of horror her and I was like. Oh Yep Yep that would be heard of it and you read the title or as phone man you go yes had to watch list immediately and then spend almost twenty years trying and find it. I think I would've bought these synapse Davide which was also the first at it. Definitely the first international release. I think it might have been the first stevie release altogether North American release says spicing APPS. I'm pretty sure I ordered. That ended watched it and then shared carried a bunch of people and then screened at my back of Bom film night and traumatizes the whole bunch of people and then a not not long after they did the first itchy retrospective at the Soudan Festival Festival in Italy they screened that thirty five the print Phone men here in Melbourne at the Melbourne International Film Festival. So I I sort of have come at it from multiple angles all of which have been intriguing and unusual ways to see it which given it's sort of a history of being very widely seen as kind of the opposite of most people's experienced about you. Just I I came across this movie when I was in high school in the part of these old net afflicts forums that don't exist anymore but That was pretty much spent most of my formative years making list after list after list list of crazy horror exploitation or sci-fi or anything sort of adjacent to to any of those genres and again. Yeah I I put it on my to watch list and then I just hadn't seen it until I washed it for this podcast. So yeah I I watched it for this podcast and I'm really glad that I did I. I watched it on a bluer. Actually it was Kinda funny. My husband purchased me the Ero Blu Ray release of this for Christmas because he one of my wish listen. I had thrown it in there recently and he was like yeah. It was at the top of your list so I thought you wanted it really bad and I was like yeah. I totally do because I want you know I want to watch that version for the projection booths. So yeah. This blu-ray really delivers an. I'm I'm glad that I finally got to knack this film off my list and I definitely want to watch more of issues. REPETOIRE which I understand is even harder to find God yes and no. There are a lot of things out there. But he is if not as prolific as McKay. Probably Pretty Darn close close. I mean the guy put out so many movies is just crazy. I want to say he had at least three movies this year. If not for in nineteen sixty eighty nine so it was just he was just cranking them out man and to the point to where a lot of the titles just start to run together because he would also do a lot of series. So there's like the line series and just the joy of torture I think is one of his series and stuff so he was just making Boo Koo movie. Okay so it's kind of tough to keep up with him to your point also. You can't really find very many good copies of this stuff in horrors of malformed men or sorry horrors of malformed performed. Men was a movie that I came across the title. Probably on Thom Fitzgerald's infamous pimple Delic Wonderland list of hard are defined or impossible to find movies. Because for a lot of years you could not get this movie at all whether you are in the states or in Japan. Dan and there were a lot of theories. As far as why is that was there something really incredibly objectionable and hear. What was the story with this movie? Why was was this movie? Essentially banned for all these years and I think a lot of it has to do with the idea of malformed people that malformed is a the original word in Japanese apparently is very offensive. So it'd be calling this a movie about like the R.. Word or just like really awful foil American words English words and also when you think about when this came out and the history of Japan and just that there were probably some quote unquote malformed l.. Formed people around due to either war injuries or radiation from Nagasaki and Hiroshima that there. This was probably speaking a little bit to that too so I think that people look down upon that whole idea of these mutant creatures that they have in the film yet. It was released on Halloween. Hello Wayne in nineteen sixty nine. Sorry they were definitely leading into the the horrific element of it when they released it. But from what I understand he had the full support Oughta of toby studios and they were they they even though it was pulled and it was it was pulled from circulation. Long Relase ended ended. Never received a home video Davide realize until this century. It's still did do screenings like midnight. Screenings wasn't entirely alley. A band film. It was kind of kept up. The sleeve is something to pull out every day on the crowd and ahead. It's Myers but always obviously that was very localized to Japan and a very small handful of cinemas and I can see this being especially in nineteen. sixty-nine and I mean Japanese happening culture is a very conservative in reserved culture. There's not there's a lot of sort of perversion and sex associated in this movie with this movie. You know the island itself is sort of this fantasy islands type resort if I guess for for our lead characters pseudo father. It's his sort of just playground and a place where he can act out and be is him and is involved in the says he wants to be sort of outside of the purview and watchful watchful eye of the family and everyone outside of the family so I can see this being a sort of shock to the system to for are Japanese film boards and General You know just like here with her just like in the in the UK with video nasties or just like here with censorship censorship and you know hey code things like that. It's all just sort of a mix of conflicting ideals. I guess it reminds me of Texas exchanged massacre in a number wise. I think it's it's just that in some ways it's just the title. It's a kind of like you've Texas chainsaw in Baske- if it had been called the yells at wouldn't have stood up nearly mealey's much controversy as did but it's just that impact that dawdle horrors of mouthful man just immediately So it's funny. You said that because I was was as I was watching this end. Our main characters sort of assumes the identity here was just picturing like he essentially as soon as the identity to the worst family could assume your identity to next to the people in the family that Texas chainsaw massacre like have you tried to comment on me like yeah. I'm going to inherit this meat meet farm. And everything's GonNa be grail crap. They're cannibals all right so they do have The grow has genre the vodka task that it does grow out of the traditions of sugar. which is as a role take it was labeled as anti being obscene and a was was theoretically banned but it was it was still prevalent and everywhere through the nineteen th century in only really really started to get Locked down and it was only really. You're fully band when they started integrate more with the West and it's instead classic thing of we don't want to present themselves as being this Ustralia the same thing in the seventies where it's like. We wanted to present picnic at hanging rock. We didn't I didn't want to present Turkey shirt. Sooner was the Osbournes Tation of Japan the nowadays century. So that's the way the girl comes from mm-hmm and you know Edgar ramp is tapping into the traditions combining them with Western traditions and so it is kind of pushing back against this Nationalistic jingoistic culture. That is developing starting to close itself off even as its reimbursing the West and we should probably note that this the full title of this movie isn't just horse of for men that it's like collected works of Edo Gala Rambo because they are pulling notches from one story story when it comes to Rand Paul but a whole bunch I think I counted like six different stories that there are bits and pieces matched up to this. There's a lot to do with the strange range tale of Panorama island but there are other bits and pieces. There's even a little bit of his story. The human chair that's mixed in here. There's things about twins and and this is just kind of mixes and matches all of these different bits of his stories and puts them all into one. Stu and I think that's one of the reasons why. This movie feels slightly disjointed at times. Because we are we started in this insane asylum we move out of the asylum. We had this whole weird like north by northwest scene. Where where he's holding the knife that Stabs this woman that he just meats and he's there and I'm surprised that photographer didn't come on. Take a picture right then. Then there's the part that we were talking about About him assuming an identity and becoming part of this other family and then the movie take a left turn again and ends up going to this island that the father of the family has. It's a little bit scattershot but I think just because it's All presented in the same tone and stitch together through the editing. That this doesn't feel like you are taking six different stories and just kind of cramming them together other it actually feels feels like this whole thing cohesive to me I did not read all of the various stories that are that you found in as I did start reading Panorama island. I think I'm about halfway through it and there are. I think that probably the majority of this plot is taken from that one like just the the the biggest plot points being the island itself the assuming identity again it's also kind of it's very different. I think from this movie because I don't know if you guys felt the same way but or if you got you read any Panorama island but the lead character in paramount island is a lot less likable than the one in malformed men and not that the one malformed Mendez particularly. I mean he's not really terrible. We don't really know him to do anything. Nothing bad. We don't really know why he's in the institution to begin with the worst thing he does is obviously assume. The identity of the dead man turns out it doesn't really matter but in Panorama island. He's a much more. I think you know deceptive in out for himself kind of character wherein malformed men. He sort of takes a turn turn because once he realizes what's going on he wants to help the family and sort of his father's weird experimentation. I didn't get a chance to raise the stories but I think in in in the book foam it's easy to juggle the multiple elements whereas the film is already so are overloaded and fulled such dramatic characters and such that simplifying that my in carry a very much make him how access point in in Tule. This works in the film's favor and he is very much. That blanks light the way that it happens. It's yet you mentioned north by northwest but if it felt very which it's itchy had made a number of very west and influenced Noirs previous to this and I watched one of issues. Carr's flesh Pierre and it reminded me of lot of Jill Dawson's working that very location based and very real and dealing with a lot of things that American while wasn't wasn't dealing with and that urban especially with the voice over Newark. Narration has that feel of Noah not just in the types of wapner. The Voice Service Mystery man as you will that kind of stuff but that that feeling that the nation feels like a thread. That's already pulling him fullwood would that destination is kind of inevitable. Even though we have absolutely no idea how we're GONNA get there where it is that. How many twisted her? It's GonNa take to get there. It feels like the a threat is already got him and he's already doomed to whatever is going to happen at the end just like most latest woz voice over the mysterious bald Mayen and the asylum. Who wants to kill him the Lullaby that he thinks that he can hear the images of the cliffs that he draws out? Just all of this stuff. It's like okay. Who is this person then and I think that the actor that plays him does a really great job because he becomes that and and I think you pretty much the exact same thing just he's he becomes like the normal see in in this insane world? He plays it so straight he never goes off the rails like so many of these other characters do especially the father character. Who from the moment that you see him he is just one hundred percent wild in even has like mad monkey noises coming out of his mouth and stuff so it's just like wow so he is the the complete opposite of of who ends up being his father? No our feelings for sure man. That's coming I it mostly would say from the ramp. Oh was a mystery writer but this is some of like. Yeah this is not your American. You're not at all. I mean the second. We see his father. Unlike that that minute were were introduced to him. And he's doing his interpretive..

"Your host Mike, white joy to me is Mr Ben Buckingham. Tell me about Mel Gibson dig balls also with us in the booth is Mr. Mike Thompson, you wanna get outta here. Talk to me this week. We're discussing the Mad Max series. Kicking off with Mad Max in nineteen seventy nine the series is directed by George Miller. It's one of the most unusual series around in that the way it has changed over the years suddenly, shifting gears and genres and actors over a thirty six year period. Of course, we're going to be spoiling all of these movies. So if you haven't seen them, you have been warned Ben was the first time you saw Mad Max. And what did you think? I'm pretty sure I actually sold them backwards. I think I funded darn fast, then mad Mex to then the original Mad Max, I vaguely remember liking thunder die when I was a kid. I don't think I saw any lighter than like eleven or twelve years old and in didn't see it twenty years. I loved the second mom when I was like the guy so that when I was about fourteen on video and bought a copy of it, and watched it like once every couple of months. And in the first one, I would have seen public win. I was about shifting sixteen get into how it was treated by some people human as jelly. But my parents always felt that it was quite a nasty films. Are they didn't let me see it as early as I saw some fun, osteo fills? It was confusing. Maybe cheese. No, quite the right word by memory of it is kind of like it just happened to me. And I didn't really know how to process that. I didn't not enjoy it. I didn't enjoy it just kind of me like a way and coming back to now like yeah. I think that was actually that was the that was the Mad Max experience. How about you Mike in question? I also watch them out of order. I became kind of, like obsessed with the road warrior before ever, having seen it for some reason there is I really like the poster of the other one with his arm and Max's arm, and then the truck right between the two of them. So I bought the soundtrack to the road warrior I before it ever seen it. And that soundtrack also had lake this sort of effects track to it, so you could..

This week, we are discussing e Elias marriages, begotten, released in nineteen ninety. The film is an experimental narrative. It's about, I'm not really sure what it's about, but I hope we're able to come to some sort of consensus. By the end of this episode. I can't even say that there are spoilers here, so I'm not sure what we could spoil in this movie.

The gotten came upon my landscape actually in my teenage years, and I never got to see it in my teenagers, but I knew about it and I see like a still from it and be like, man, this looks like this looks nightmarish and beautiful all the same time and one of the things I think that always appealed to me with horror as a kid as adult too is when an artist is able to present you an image that on one hand is completely awful. Disgusting disturbing, but do it in a way that's also kind of beautiful. It's like that ugly, beautiful combination that so appealing. So I was always very curious about begotten in. So when you mentioned like, hey, doing an episode about it, I'm like, this is my perfect push to see this.

Also with this this week as Mr. Nick Dawson, I want us to be legitimate and different and better than it's ever been done on the special episode of the projection. Booths were looking at Dennis Hopper's. The last movie barely released by Universal Pictures in nineteen seventy one. The film stars hopper as Kansas, a man as middle American as his name. He's IMP Aroo as a stunt man for a western when the cast and crew packs up and goes back to Hollywood. He stays behind where the natives form a sort of cargo cult around movie, making holding up Kansas as their gods savior, and as their sacrifice. Now, we're going to be getting into spoilers big time on the Sepah soda. If I have an already ruined it with that description for years, this film was little difficult to see and what was out.

It's currently being re released by Arbelo's in a limited theatrical run, which is already bigger than the original release of the film and with a Blu Ray release set for later twenty eighteen. So if you haven't seen the last movie yet, definitely check it out and come back after you're done. We will still be here. So Ben, when was the first time you saw the last movie in?

It was all hold out. I'll hold out because his film Sedley was saying in in the best possible way that you. Can how about you Nick? Well, I'm very lucky in the just a couple of days ago. I think on Tuesday of last week I, I saw the film on the big screen for the first time the the restored version at it. It's it's really something special.
