Before Fellini was known for this surreal films, he was the creator of stories that were often beautiful and sad. Nights of Cabiria is one of his finest and The Immortals are here to review this Oscar winning film. They also will listen to a full album by Richard and Linda Thompson (he was a recent review for the Song category), review some vinegar from a previous week, listen to a man named Python and fear some British plants. Get excited!
War is hell. War film are sometimes also hell, but a considerably lesser hell. Let’s get this straight: war = hell; war films = heck. And oh boy is Platoon one heck of a film. Oliver Stone’s semi-autobiographical tale of men in Vietnam is filled with impressive actors and maybe less than impressive direction. Also the gang listens to some Fuzzy, ignore some vinegar, find out that a motorcycle is pretty cool and watch an I Love the 90s parody from the creator of Veep. Get excited, it’s a short one this week!
