Episode 32: Rancho Notorious

Rancho NotoriousIn this week’s episode, we welcome playwright/actor Kelvin Hatle to our table as we discuss what happens when Fritz Lang directs a western: Rancho Notorious!

We highly recommend you watch the film before listening to the episode, because you really must witness at least the drinking game scene. This film is available on DVD from Amazon and can probably be found a few other select places. (Beware of the streaming copy on DailyMotion, which is missing scenes.)

Please join us on September 21st for an episode about the French masterpiece of tension: The Wages of Fear!

Episode 31: Ministry of Fear

Ministry of FearIn this week’s episode, we have a grand time talking about all that cake in Fritz Lang’s Ministry of Fear!

We highly recommend you watch the film before listening to the episode, because it’s loads of fun and we don’t want to spoil it for you. This film is available on DVD from Amazon and elsewhere, and if you’re lucky, there might still be an illicit copy of the whole film hanging out on YouTube.

Please join us on September 7th for the third and final movie in our Fritz Lang triple feature: Rancho Notorious!

Episode 30: The Testament of Dr. Mabuse

The Testament of Dr. MabuseIn this week’s episode, we thoroughly enjoy a movie banned personally by Joseph Goebbels: The Testament of Dr. Mabuse!

We highly recommend you watch the film before listening to the episode, because the second part of the episode will probably make no sense whatsoever if you don’t. This film is easily available via a great 2-disc set released by Criterion, and is also currently available streaming on Hulu Plus.

Please join us on August 21st for second movie in our Fritz Lang triple feature: Ministry of Fear!
