The Scarecrow Video Podcast Episode 21: Topsy Turvy

Now that our podcast can legally drink, it's appropriate that our latest episode takes place at our neighborhood watering hole Dante's. Join Kevin Clarke and Matt and new-to-the-podcast Spenser and Mark Steiner for some booze and quality film chat.

Spenser watched the Shaw Brothers' 1983  LITTLE DRAGON MAIDEN. This scene unfortunately doesn't show the horrible bird costume Spenser mentions.

 

Kevin's been watching a lot Mike Leigh movies, mainly from the BBC box set. It includes the apparently wildly popular TV event ABIGAIL'S PARTY.  Note: The short film they mention that was written by and starring Jim Broadbent is called A SENSE OF HISTORY;  you'll find on the Criterion release of TOPSY TURVY. Here's the trailer for NAKED:

 

 

Mark watched a "s##t ton" of Ernst Lubitsch films (most notably the silents) and kicks off a great discussion of Woody Allen's films, especially the new on Blu-ray ANNIE HALL.

 

Matt recently re-examined CAST AWAY, which he calls "Robert Zemeckis' " IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE." The conversation morphs in to an excellent examination of CHINATOWN.

 

There's a little shop talk about how we make decisions about what to bring in for rent with specifc shout-outs to Warner Archives and other made-on-demand studio titles.

 

Lastly, Matt was floored by Kenneth Longeran's MARGARET, which opens today at SIFF Cinema.
