2022-12-0201:49:48

In this episode of the show we are diving into the depths of underwater cinema as we are launching a miniseries on thrillers set against the backdrop of oceanic expanses. And we are starting off with Deepstar Six. Over the course of our conversation you will hear us talk about the film's obvious connection to Alien and Aliens, how its lived-in sets aid in audience immersion, the importance of designing a memorable creature, Miguel Ferrer as the MVP of the film and much more!

Here's a short teaser of the twelfth episode of our Patreon-exclusive show Uncut Gems Marathons where each year we will pick one director and, one by one, discuss their entire filmography. For 2022 we have chosen to dive deep into the cinema of David Lynch. In this episode of our 2022 David Lynch Marathon we are diving head first down the rabbit hole of David Lynch's nightmarish thoughtscape as we talk about Inland Empire. Over the course of our conversation you will hear us talk about Lynch's newfound fascination with digital filmmaking, taking complete control over his process, shooting in Poland, whether the movie is an epilogue to his career and whether it is perhaps too impenetrable and personal to be interrogated by an unprepared viewer.

2022-11-2502:53:38

In this episode of the show we are joined once again by our good buddy Jackson Boren to talk about Toy Soldiers!!! Over the course of our conversation you will hear us talk about why we think this movie has disappeared from the popular consciousness despite being engineered to resonate with young adults, the short-lived directorial career of Daniel Petrie Jr., the romantic allure of the 80s and 90s villains, practical effects, squibs and military hardware, Sean Astin's Samwise Gamgee energy, the importance of having a switched-on henchman and much more!  Tune in and enjoy!

Episode 95 - Man of Tai Chi

Episode 95 - Man of Tai Chi

2022-11-1803:02:13

In this episode of the show we are continuing our double bill of actors-turned-directors doing a martial arts film with Keanu Reeves' Man of Tai Chi. Joined by our good buddy Jak we wonder what pushed Keanu Reeves to step behind the camera and why he never returned to do another movie. You will also hear us talk about the influences behind the movie, the Wachowski factor, whether the movie is too complex for its own good or if it is perfect the way it is, if it functions as a martial arts Truman Show, and most importantly we ask if Keanu Reeves' direction makes martial artists look cool.  Tune in and enjoy!

This month we are tying our bonus discussion to the upcoming duet of episodes on martial arts movies and one cannot talk about karate chops and weird tournaments in secluded locations without mentioning Enter The Dragon.

Episode 93 - Suspiria 2018

Episode 93 - Suspiria 2018

2022-11-0402:58:01

In this episode of the show together with our special guest Rafael Felix we are exploring the thematic landscape hiding beneath Luca Guadagnino's Suspiria. Over the course of our conversation you will hear us wonder whether the political context of the film is needed at all, if it is easy to spot Tilda Swinton in an old man make-up, and how this movie relates to Dario Argento's original. We also talk about motherhood, slow-cooked horror, what it means to be a witch, biblical allegories, the power of love and much more! Tune in and enjoy!

In this episode of the show we are joined by our good buddy Jak to talk about The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. Over the course of our conversation you will hear us talk about the movie's wildly singular energy, how it detaches itself from the iconic predecessor with its tone and approach to violence, the various connotations suggesting it attempts to be a comedy and how Rob Zombie must be in love with this movie! We also wonder how it must have been for Dennis Hopper to star in this movie, if Caroline Williams is Jamie Lee Curtis you can afford, and the notion of putting up Christmas lights in your cannibal lair to make it a bit more homely.

Here's a short teaser of the eleventh episode of our Patreon-exclusive show Uncut Gems Marathons where each year we will pick one director and, one by one, discuss their entire filmography. For 2022 we have chosen to dive deep into the cinema of David Lynch. In this episode of our 2022 David Lynch Marathon we are wallowing in our nightmares as we attempt to unpack the horror of Mulholland Drive. Over the course of our conversation you will hear us talk about the film's status as one of the most important movies ever made, connections to Lynch's wider body of work, the allure of Naomi Watts, Angelo Badalamenti's table manners and much more!

In this episode of the show we are joined by our good buddy Kyle to talk about the infamous Nothing But Trouble, a movie that quite literally broke Dan Aykroyd's career. Over the course of our conversation you will hear us try to decide if it is more a comedy or a horror, how it connects to the popculture at large, and how it was perhaps ahead of its time in terms of its comedic sensibilities. We also wonder how little oversight there was on set, how Demi Moore must have felt a bit out of her depth in this scenario, how Chevy Chase's allure may be an acquired taste and how John Candy's everyman energy may or may not be the film's saving grace.  Tune in and enjoy!

Here's a short teaser of our brand new Patreon-exclusive episode of Uncut Gems Tie-ins, a monthly series where we take a classic movie and connect it to a film discussed on our main show. The second bonus tie-in of this month is dedicated to Dario Argento's Suspiria in connection to our upcoming episode on Luca Guadagnino's notorious remake over on the main show. Over the course of our conversation you will hear us talk about the disconnect between the film's popularity abroad and in Italy, whether it functions as an extension of giallo, a fable or something else, and if it has enough meat on the bone to satisfy the desires of a seasoned genre aficionado. You will also hear us opine on Udo Kier's charm (again), weird James Bond connotations and Jessica Harper's convenient sleepiness. Tune in and enjoy!

CONTENT WARNING! This episode contains a conversation about two graphic exploitation movies full of violence, sexual violence and other depravity, and the conversation does not stray away from these subjects. Listener discretion is advised.  In this episode of the show we are joined by our good buddies Kevin and Erin, hosts of The Podcast That Wouldn't Die, to talk about two movies directed by Paul Morrisey and starring Udo Kier, Flesh For Frankenstein and Blood For Dracula. Over the course of our conversation you will hear us wonder whether these folks knew how to make movies, whether they aimed to take inspiration from softcore pornography and whether anyone should pay attention to any and all social commentary embedded within their narratives. We also take stock of Udo Kier's career, wonder why Joe Dallesandro had one to begin with, marvel at the gross-out violence on display and even postulate that a certain Monty Python movie may have ripped off the iconic ending of Blood For Dracula.

Here's a short teaser of our brand new Patreon-exclusive episode of Uncut Gems Tie-ins, a monthly series where we take a classic movie and connect it to a film discussed on our main show. This month we are tying our bonus episode to the upcoming Halloween when we will talk about The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 as well as Nothing But Trouble. Therefore, we thought it was high time we discussed Tobe Hooper's classic that redefined the genre of horror for decades to come. Over the course of our conversation you will hear us talk about the sub-textual horror of this movie, its immense cultural footprint, Gunnar Hansen's dirty costume, Ed Gein's Sunday hobbies and the dangers of running with a chainsaw!

Episode 88 - 52 Pick-Up

Episode 88 - 52 Pick-Up

2022-09-3002:31:21

In this episode of the show we are talking about 52 Pick-Up, a John Frankenheimer-directed adaptation of Elmore Leonard's pulpy neo-noir starring Roy Scheider. Joined by a very special guest Sarah Buddery, we explore the sleazy underworld of Leonard's prose, we marvel at Roy Scheider's acting range and John Frankenheimer directorial immediacy, comment on the troublesome treatment of female characters, wonder whether Hardcore and Taxi Driver exist in the same universe with this movie and how 52 Pick-Up was perhaps doomed to become a cult film stuck between two eras in genre filmmaking.  Tune in and enjoy!

Episode 87 - The River Wild

Episode 87 - The River Wild

2022-09-2303:13:58

In this episode of the show we are talking about the 1994 adventure thriller The River Wild starring Meryl Streep, Kevin Bacon and David Strathairn. Joined by a special guest, Jackson Boren, we talked about Meryl Streep as an underrated female action hero, Kevin Bacon ambiguous energy, the intricacy of the screenwriting laying out its exposition, the movie encapsulating a breadth of marriage therapy notes, nature as a villain and much, much more!

Here's a short teaser of our brand new Patreon-exclusive episode of Uncut Gems Retrospectives, a monthly series where we pick a handful of movies tied around a specific theme, a filmmaker or an actor and have an honest chat about them. This month we are tying our retrospective to our September mini-collaboration with Death by Adaptation Podcast where we'll be talking about a bunch of Elmore Leonard adaptations, most of which fall into the sub-genre of neo-noir. Therefore, we thought it would be cool to talk about three other modern neo-noir films and it just so happens that The Coen Brothers have been frequently revisiting this genre themselves. We chose Blood Simple, Miller's Crossing and The Man Who Wasn't There and we spent a good few hours discussing The Coens' visual penchant for fetishizing settings and eras, arguing if Miller's Crossing is a perfect story or if it's perhaps bloated with plot, and wondering if The Man Who Wasn't There may have been a bit too self-indulgent for its own good.

2022-09-1601:48:27

In this episode of the show we are continuing our little impromptu James Caan commemoration special - in addition to last week's Freebie and the Bean - by talking about another 1974 movie he starred in, The Gambler.  Over the course of our chat you will hear us talk about The New Hollywood making a mark on cinema, Axel Freed as an idle rich kid seeking thrills, Burt Young's casual destructive capabilities, listening to the radio in the cinema, and much more!  Tune in and enjoy!
