Esta semana exorcizamos nuestros demonios en un estudio profundo y lleno de enriquecimiento intelectual de la franquicia de The Exorcist. Bueno... eso intentamos hacer, ya que no hay mucho material fuera de la novela y su primera película. De todos modos, nos lanzamos al abismo del infierno donde potencialmente yace la consciencia de Friedkin después de haber dirigido Bug para encontrar los elementos que funcionan y no funcionan de esta importantísima franquicia dentro del género de horror.
William Friedkin's film Sorcerer (1977) has been subject to a major re-evaluation in the last decade. A dark re-imagining of the French Director H.G. Clouzot's Le Salaire de la Peur (The Wages of Fear) (1953) (based on George Arnaud's novel); the film was a major critical and commercial failure on its initial release. Friedkin's work was castigated as an example of directorial hubris as it was a notoriously difficult production which went wildly over-budget. It was viewed at the time as the end of New Hollywood. However, within recent years, the film has emerged in the popular and scholarly consciousness from enjoying a minor, cult status to becoming subject to a full-blown critical reconsideration in which it has been praised a major work by a key American filmmaker.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/writers-on-film.

For the 150th episode of the podcast, returning guest Meg Shields joins me from Vancouver for a show about William Friedkin's legendary horror film The Exorcist, which turns 50 years old this December. I had always been TOO SCARED to watch the original Exorcist (even though I had seen the first two sequels) so for this podcast, as a farewell tribute to Hurricane Billy who passed away this August, I watched it for the first time. Meg and I discuss this prototypical blockbuster based on the bestselling novel by William Peter Blatty, the first horror movie to be Oscar nominated for Best Picture, and a cultural phenomenon where audiences lined up for hours hoping to buy a ticket for this endurance test, with many reports of horrified walkouts and fainting spells in the lobby at every screening. We discuss the differences between the original 1973 theatrical version and the “director's cut” from the year 2000, the criticism of this film in some circles as a reactionary and patriarchal work, Friedkin's insane conduct on the set (including mistreatment of the actors), the strange connection between The Exorcist and Freidkin's later film Cruising, and Meg and I wonder what Hurricane Billy would have said about this year's “legacy sequel” The Exorcist: Believer, which opened two months after his death. The 2019 documentary Leap of Faith: William Friedkin on The Exorcist is available to stream in North America on Kanopy. Become a patron of the podcast to access to exclusive episodes every month.

The movie this week is William Friedkin's Bug (2006) adapted from the play by Tracy Letts. Joining the ghouls is filmmaker/writer Jon Nix who plugs his documentary about Justin Pearson, Don't Fall in Love With Yourself. (Available from the fine folks at Vinegar Syndrome.) They also discuss Gaspar Noe's Lux Aeterna, Alfred (1973) Conner O' Malley's The Mask, Colegas aka Pals, and all about Phrogging: Hider in my House and movies where someone is hiding in the walls. From wiki: “Bug is a 2006 psychological thriller film directed by William Friedkin and written by Tracy Letts, based on his 1996 play of the same name. The film stars Ashley Judd, Michael Shannon, Lynn Collins, Brían F. O'Byrne, and Harry Connick Jr.Bug debuted at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival before being purchased by Lionsgate, which released the film the following year in May 2007. The film received generally positive reviews from critics, who praised its intensity, directing, acting, and take on paranoia, but were polarized about its writing, in particular the film's ending. Friedkin and Letts collaborated again as director and writer on the 2011 film Killer Joe.”NEXT WEEK: Singapore Sling (1990)Jon Nix's website: https://www.jonnixfilm.com/Jon Nix's Twitter: https://twitter.com/jonnixfilmJon Nix's Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jonnixfilm/Website: http://www.bloodhauspod.comTwitter: https://twitter.com/BloodhausPodInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/bloodhauspod/Email: email@example.comDrusilla's art: https://www.sisterhydedesign.com/Drusilla's Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/hydesister/Drusilla's Letterboxd: https://letterboxd.com/drew_phillips/Joshua's website: https://www.joshuaconkel.com/Joshua's Bluesky: https://bsky.app/profile/joshuaconkel.bsky.socialInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/joshua_conkel/Joshua's Letterboxd: https://letterboxd.com/joshuaconkel

This week, we're comparing the most beloved movie ever made by William Friedkin and one of the last movies made by William Friedkin. That's right, The Exorcist: Believer came out recently as a reboot sequel of The Exorcist, which ignores all the subsequent sequels in true Halloween (2018). In addition to our review of that film, we discuss Friedkin's The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial, an adaptation of a 50s play (originally a novel and also a film) set in the modern day. Despite being a "TV movie," it's actually fantastic? Show Notes 00:00:00 – The Exorcist: Believer 00:30:15 – The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial The Exorcist: Believer was directed by David Gordon Green, who co-wrote the screenplay with Peter Sattler and story credits that include Green, Scott Teems, and Danny McBride. The cast includes Leslie Odom Jr., Lidya Jewett, Olivia O‘Neill, Jennifer Nettles, Norbert Leo Butz, Ann Dowd, and Ellen Burstyn. The film came out on October 6 through Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions, and it has a 111-minute runtime. The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial was directed and written by William Friedkin, based on Herman Wouk's eponymous 1953 play, itself based on Wouk's 1952 novel The Caine Mutiny. The cast includes Kiefer Sutherland, Jason Clarke, Jake Lacy, Monica Raymund, and Lance Reddick. Additionally, the film premiered at the Venice International Film Festival on September 3 and came out on Paramount+ with Showtime on October 6. It has a 109-minute runtime.

William Friedkin is an underrated filmmaker and he took "The Exorcist" and gave the film its own spiritual cleanse on screen. He made a film that's iconic and will stand the test of time. It's very in-depth, the characters show great sense of purpose and their purpose pushes the film. The film's tone goes all over the place. It can be dark, uplifting, and even humorous. The devil can play tricks on you and it doesn't care and will laugh at you. The film shows you to not mess with people or things that just feels like it ain't right. It also shows the faith you have not on a creator greater than you but PEOPLE. You can have faith on people. The mom never gave up on her daughter.Four our of four tokes.
EPISODE #395-- We delve into the classic film noir fairy tale THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER (1955). It's got everything: Metaphor, murder, and Mitchum. What else could a body want from a movie?

THANKS TO ANDREW FOR MAKING THE INTRO SONG. (soundcloud.com / andoryukesuta)@andoryukesuta The Exorcist (1973) A visiting actress in Washington, D.C., notices dramatic and dangerous changes in the behavior and physical make-up of her 12-year-old daughter. Meanwhile, a young priest at nearby Georgetown University begins to doubt his faith while dealing with his mother's terminal sickness. A frail, elderly priest recognizes the necessity for a show-down with an old demonic enemy. The Exorcist is a 1973 American supernatural horror film directed by William Friedkin from a screenplay by William Peter Blatty, based on his 1971 novel of the same name. The film stars Ellen Burstyn, Max von Sydow, Jason Miller, and Linda Blair. The story follows the demonic possession of a young girl and her mother's attempt to rescue her through an exorcism by two Catholic priests. Blatty, who also produced, and Friedkin, his choice as director, had difficulty casting the film. Their choice of relative unknowns Burstyn, Blair, and Miller, instead of major stars, drew opposition from Warner Bros. Pictures executives. Principal photography was also difficult, taking place in both hot deserts and refrigerated sets. Many cast and crew were injured, some died, and unusual accidents delayed shooting. Production took twice as long as scheduled and cost almost three times the initial budget; the many mishaps have led to a belief that the film was cursed. The Exorcist was released in 24 theaters in the United States on December 26, 1973. Reviews were mixed, but audiences waited in long lines during cold weather; the sold-out shows were even more profitable for Warner, since they had booked it into those theaters under four wall distribution rental agreements, the first time a major studio had done that. Some viewers suffered adverse physical reactions, fainting or vomiting to shocking scenes such as a realistic cerebral angiography. Many children were allowed to see it, leading to charges that the MPAA ratings board had accommodated Warner by giving the film an R rating instead of the X rating to ensure the troubled production its commercial success. Several cities attempted to ban it outright or prevent children from attending. The cultural conversation around the film helped it become the first horror film to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture, as well as nine others. Blatty won Best Adapted Screenplay, while the sound engineers took Best Sound. It has had several sequels and was the highest-grossing R-rated horror film (unadjusted for inflation) until It. The Exorcist had a significant influence on pop culture and several publications regard it as one of the greatest horror films ever made. In 2010, the Library of Congress selected the film for preservation in the United States National Film Registry as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."

The whole doc is an interview with Friedkin about his creative process and digging in to how he made various choices and where he found inspiration for this movie. We talk inspiration, the soothing power of organizing, and Friedkin's one admitted 'flaw' in the movie. All this and much more on this week's It Gets Weird!
POPEYE'S HERE!!!!! In celebration of the life and work of the recently departed William Friedkin, we dig into the movie that netted him a Best Director Oscar and also took home the grand prize of Best Picture: 1971's THE FRENCH CONNECTION! We discuss the character of Popeye Doyle, Friedkin's clever ways of subverting copaganda, and examine the impact that his filmmaking style has on modern day cinema. After our discussion we count down some of our favorite Best Picture winners (I left ROCKY and THE GODFATHER off my list because what more can be said??).

L'arrivo di Lukaku è il terzo grande colpo di mercato della gestione americana della Roma dei Friedkin dopo Mourinho e Dybala. La piazza è carica di entusiasmo ed ora tocca allo Special One riportare la Roma in alto dopo una campagna acquisti importante. Ne parliamo con Andrea Di Caro, Gazzetta dello Sport. Gli ultimi giorni di mercato possono regalare ancora qualche sorpresa per le squadre di vertice italiane, in particolare per il Milan che continua a spingere per Taremi del Porto. Ne parliamo con Luca Marchetti, Sky Sport.I dati di ascolto delle prima due giornate di campionato segnano un calo degli spettatori della Serie A rispetto alla scorsa stagione. Italiani ancora in vacanza o calo dell'appeal del nostro massimo campionato? Lo chiediamo a Marco Bellinazzo, Il Sole 24 Ore. Dopo la vittoria di ieri sulle Filippine, l'Italbasket si prepara alla seconda fase del mondiale ma a far discutere è stato lo sfogo di ieri del ct Pozzecco. Ne parliamo con Giacomo Galanda.
Apologies for the technical delays, but we're back with an all new bonus episode.

Plus musical guest Fache appears courtesy of Horror Pain Gore Death Productions (horrorpaingoredeath.com).
Legendary Filmmaker William Friedkin died on August 7th, 2023, a few months before the 50th Anniversary of THE EXORCIST. As his legend would dictate, Friedkin was a bit of a demon himself to those who worked with him and opposed him. "Hurricane Billy" would do anything for a shot, even at the risk of life and limb. Join me as I take a personal look at my utter fascination with the director, whose work captivated me at an early age, and how his persona left me conflicted. Love him or hate him, Friedkin made you take notice. I hope you enjoy the show! Movies Discussed: THE PEOPLE VS. PAUL CRUMP (1962) GOOD TIMES (1967) THE NIGHT THEY RAIDED MINSKY'S (1968) THE BIRTHDAY PARTY (1968) THE FRENCH CONNECTION (1971) THE EXORCIST (1973) SORCERER (1977) DEAL OF THE CENTURY(1983) TO LIVE AND DIE IN LA (1985) KILLER JOE (2011)
Family Plot: William Friedkin's Film of Tracy Letts's Killer Joe This week Ibrahim & I remember the iconic filmmaker, William Friedkin. Friedkin was director of numerous classic films including: The French Connection (1971), The Exorcist (1973), Sorcerer (1977), and To LIve and Die in L.A. (1985). His career would see numerous hits and misses, however many would agree that it ended with one of the strongest (and easily the most polarizing) films of his career . . . the Tracy Letts scripted (from his stage play) Killer Joe. Troubling material and numerous explicitly violent scenes make this film a struggle (albeit incredibly rewarding) to get through. With an powerful titular performance from Matthew McConaughey and an incredible supporting cast including: Emile Hirsch, Thomas Hayden Church, Gina Gershon, and Juno Temple, this is - arguably - one of the best films 2011 and the decade. Take a listen and see if you agree with our impressions of this overpowering film. Questions, Comments, Complaints, and Suggestions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Dan and Conrad find themselves itching compulsively while padding around in a tinfoil-covered motel room searching for aphids. Yes, we're revisiting Bug (2006), the late William Friendkin's adaptation of Tracy Letts' play starring Ashley Judd, Michael Shannon, Lynn Collins and Harry Connick Jr. It's an intense psychological thriller set largely in a single room focusing on two lonely outcasts who go crazy in love... literally. Or maybe they really are the focus of a giant conspiracy involving medical experiments, child abduction, genetically modified insects and one giant mother super bug. We picked this one out of the oubliette before the sad news of the director's passing, so this comes as an unplanned but timely retrospective on the film Friedkin called his most intense piece of work. Where does it sit in his legacy? Find out! Follow us on Threads, Facebook, Instagram and maybe Twitter, if it's still functioning.

Based On a True Story: William Friedkin's The Brink's Job This past week we said farewell to one of the greats of 70s & 80s Cinema, William Friedkin. Known for such classics as The French Connection, The Exorcist, and To Live and Die in L.A, Friedkin was a difficult and polarizing figure in the world of cinema. What cannot be argued was his briliance. For this week's episode I remember Mr. Friedkin with a rarely seen film that is far outside his better known filmography, 1978's The Brink's Job. Based on the true story of the biggest heist in history - up to that point - Friedkin's film is a wonderfully playful and comic look at the men who pulled off this ridiculous crime. Featuring an all-star cast led by Peter Falk and including Gena Rowlands, Peter Boyle, Allen Garifeld, Paul Sorvino, and Warren Oates, The Brink's Job is a fun little caper film that is far better than it has any right to be. Watch the movie, take a listen and let me know if you agree. Questions, Comments, Complaints, and Suggestions can be directed to email@example.com.
