    Alright, fine, I know I have been away. I'm sorry, I'm sorry what do you want from me huh, it's not easy tracking this piece of shit for years now, it has been a drain on my soul, it has been a drain on my fucking brain. But, first order of business is some fan mail from Jeff Cane, an Englishman in LA. I agree with you, Cousin Andy and Mr. Schmatta, those guys they are lost man, they sit in their own enclaves and bubble of Trump martyrdom, and they continue to have diarrhea of the mouth and isn't that the point. I wanted to run that without commentary, without interruption because sadly enough Jeffrey there is a large percentage of American's out there that are lost, just simply adrift in a political boat up river, a Heart of Darkness Journey for lack of a better term, so again Jeff, I promise, if Cousin Andy ever appears again on Trump Mafia, he will be grilled for his faulty beliefs, for his views that remind me of the people that drank the Kool aid in Jonestown, or the fellas who took the potion who were wearing velour jumpsuits and Nike Cortez waiting for some alien space ship that never arrived. I can't say we do top notch journalism here at the Mafia, but I agree that maybe I should have held Cousin Andy's feet to the fire, but isn't it much better to just let the craziness roll? I think in my vacation, it has been a little quiet, a little depressed and from what I have been reading, there seems to be a lot of journalistic think pieces on Donnie that basically remind me of the kind of journalism that is written when an athlete who is supposed to retire, plays that extra season, steps into that ring one more time, or makes that comeback run wearing number 45 like Jordan when he played for the Washington Wizards, you remember that don't you? But let's hold up a bit here and really talk about this, if Donnie is on the ropes, if Donnie is in this depressing vortex, or if New Year's Eve at Mar a Lago was piss in my chowder boring, then maybe this is the end, maybe just maybe this is it?? I mean I literally saw a headline about New Year's Eve at Mar-A-Lago being depressing, come on journalists we can do better than that, I am sure the fucking conservative, plastic surgery Dinosaur set at the resort were fine with their expensive champagne and Beef Wellington, let's not get crazy here.

    From the moment Bette Davis served up a dead rat to Joan Crawford in What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? a subset of camp horror films was born. The ‘Hag Horror' genre exploited the former Oscar-winners and glamour queens who had effectively built Hollywood, transforming them into grotesque caricatures that revealed a cultural disdain for older women. In Crazy Old Ladies: The Story of Hag Horror, Caroline Young traces the development of this genre, from its origins in Sunset Boulevard and All About Eve, through to the horror movie phenomenon following the huge success of Psycho. It explores how the stars of the Golden Age adapted to the advent of television, the collapse of the studio system and changing censorship codes, and revived their fortunes by reaching new audiences as crazed spinsters and menopausal maniacs. Films like Strait-Jacket, Lady in a Cage, What's the Matter with Helen? and Rosemary's Baby reveal the fears around the growing feminist movement, a clash between tradition and youth, and a shift in notions of celebrity. Above all, Crazy Old Ladies is a timely overview of the subgenre, to reveal the sometimes painful stories of what happened to iconic, ageing actresses once their career as leading ladies was considered over. Crazy Old Ladies is published by Bear Manor Media, where you can purchase a copy.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/writers-on-film. Hosted on Acast.

    On this jam-packed, monster-sized edition of Parallax Views, acclaimed film historian Joseph McBride returns to the program to discuss the life and times of Hollywood filmmaking legend Steven Spielberg, his films, and his latest feature, the autobiographical coming-of-age drama The Fabelmans. McBride many books on cinema include Frank Capra: The Catastrophe of Success, Orson Welles: Actor and Director, Searching for John Ford, Billy Wilder: Dancing on the Edge, and The Whole Durn Human Comedy: Life According to the Coen Brothers, and, of special note to this conversation, the unauthorized Steve Spielberg: A Biography.

Robert Caro's Lyndon Johnson biography; Joseph interviewed over 300 people for the book; interviewing people from all over the country because Spielberg lived in so many different cities and states, especially when he was growing up - Joseph's interview with Arnold Spielberg, Steven's father, and the said moment for him during that interview; the underrated role of Arnold Spielberg in Steven's life and amateur films; Steven's relationship with his father and the way it is portrayed in The Fabelmans; the schism between Steven and his father Arnold - The traumatic impact of Steven's parents' divorce on him in his adolescent years; family rupture, broken families, and the role of irresponsible father and mother figures in Steven's films - Picking apart the mythologized portrayal of how Steven got into Hollywood and the true facts of how he got into Hollywood - The ambitious 1964 science fiction film Firelight, which Spielberg made at the age 17 - Spielberg's dyslexia, his poor performance as a student in school - The story of a young Spielberg's experience seeing The Greatest Show on Earth and his recreating of that film's train crash - The common criticism that Spielberg's movies are too sentimental or schmaltzy;

wanting to assimilate with gentile in his youth; a telling moment where a young Steven was embarrassed by his ultra-Orthodox grandfather - Spielberg's use of Christian iconography in his films including in Amistad and E.T. - Alienation, Other-ness, Otherization, and persecution in Spielberg's films; Spielberg's interest in communication with "The Other" as a theme - Alice Walker, Black Americans in Steven Spielberg's films, The Color Purple, and Spielberg as a "Minority Director"; the attacks on Spielberg over The Color Purple; - The Sugarland Express, Goldie Hawn, class, and the role of outsiders in Spielberg's films - The dark side of suburbia and smalltown America in Spielberg's films - E.T. and the truth of modern life; E.T. as resonating because it was unlike some of the Disney-style family entertainment of the time - The accusation that Spielberg manipulates his audiences;

War of the Worlds and Minority Report - David Lynch's cameo in The Fabelmans as John Ford; Joseph's interview/experience with John Ford - The changing landscape of cinema, the dominance of superhero movies, and the history of the trend towards juvenile movies being cranked out by Hollywood rather than serious "adult" movies; are Spielberg and George Lucas responsible because of movies like Jaws and Star Wars?; cultural obsessions with superheroes and juvenilia and the effect of that on politics; The cultural shift from wanting realism in film to 'magic' and escapism - The success of Jaws, national TV advertising, and myths concerning Jaws' theatrical release - Billy Wilder's attempt to sophisticate and "European-ize" American cinema;

    Welcome to our Summer special. We know what you are thinking dear listener, At The Flicks, late again. You might be right, or we might be early for Summer 2023, you decide, we couldn't possibly comment. Don't go looking at the films under review to work out if they are released 2022 or 2023. It's not that type of review show. This is a classic movie review show. To be honest, we haven't been that impressed with many of the movies released recently, so we set a challenge for the review team. Pick a highly acclaimed movie you have never seen, then we would all review it. The selection process made for some very interesting choices. Now, we aren't going to tell you who picked what film, you will have to listen to the show to find that out, however we will tell you what films were selected, and they are as follows: The Cabinet Of Dr Caligari. The classic silent German film from when way back in 1921, when even our Graham was young. This film has received much renewed attention as a talking point in the Nicholas Cage feature The Unbearable Weight Of Massive Talent. Check this out to find out if the review team rate it as highly as Nicholas Cage. Sunset Boulevard (1950). Billy Wilder's acidic take on Hollywood turned out to be a marmite film for the review team. Listen in to find out who liked it and who didn't. Inherit The Wind (1960). Spencer Tracy and Frederic March star in this court room drama based on the 1925 Scopes Monkey Trail. The one that some in the team had not heard of but all of enjoyed. Also prompted a fascinating discussion about the relevance of the movie in today's society. My Fair Lady (1964). Pardon me. What, the Oscar winning British musical based on the play Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw? Is this a mistake? Not at all, although everyone thought the person who selected this had picked it for mischievous reasons, which I guess is a good clue as to who selected it. Vertigo (1958). The classic Hitchcock thriller and Sight & Sound's selection for the greatest film of all time. Do the review team agree with Sight & Sound – check out our discussion. Five great films for which we give our views. Let us know what you think, if the show is a success, we will pick another five classics in the near future (or will that be the near past?). Oh, one final comment, if you listen closely, you will find out how reviewer Darren got his name. A great story. Until the next time, see you At The Flicks.

    Some times life is even more fascinating than fiction. Behind the mystique of "Sunset Boulvard" is a nuanced parallel story of a fading star, her unrequited love for a stunning younger man, and the gay love story it complicated. This story is not fiction, however, it was real. Dickson Hughes and Richard Stapley were two young songwriters and romantic partners in the 1950s. They found themselves caught in movie star Gloria Swanson's web when she hired them to write a musical version of “Sunset Boulevard" long before the Andrew Lloyd Webber version was even imagined.  Life imitated art when Gloria fell in love with Richard, and  Dixon and Richard found themselves trapped in a strange real life version of the classic Wilder film. Jeffrey Schwartz has brought the true story to life in the documentary Boulevard! A Hollywood Story, now streaming on iTunes and Apple+.  He is here with us today to talk about this true life romantic triangle and telling the world a new version of Sunset Boulevard. Jeffrey is an Emmy Award-winning producer, director and editor. His previous documentaries include “The Fabulous Allan Carr,” which premiered at the 2017 Seattle International Film Festival, the 2015 SXSW premiere “Tab Hunter Confidential,” the Emmy Award-winning HBO Documentary Films' “Vito,” “I Am Divine,” currently streaming on Netflix, “Wrangler: Anatomy of an Icon,” currently streaming on Amazon Prime, and the 2007 AFI Fest Documentary Audience Award winner “Spine Tingler!

    James and Thomas wrap up their series of episodes on film noir with a discussion of Billy Wilder's acerbic and vastly entertaining critique of Hollywood avarice and vanity, Sunset Boulevard. The movie business from the beginning has created some sad and grotesque figures, and this film focuses on two in particular. One is the sad and deluded has-been celebrity. Sunset Boulevard gets "meta" in its reflection of the perils of star-worship, especially in the character of Norma Desmond, a former silent film idol played unforgettably by a real-life former silent film star, Gloria Swanson. The other Hollywood type this film shows us is the ambitious loser. Film noir protagonists tend to be losers, and indeed the loser seems like a distinctly American archetype, the flip-side of the American dream with its expectation that one should always be advancing one's station in life. Perhaps no place generates losers like L.A., and in Sunset Boulevard we get our man in down-and-out screenwriter Joe Gillis, played by William Holden.
