An Oakland resident for many years now, England-born Zoë Elton has colored the Bay Area's film and theater world with her many talents. She is a film curator, writer, cartoonist, interviewer, director, jewelry-designer, and the long-time Program Director for the Mill Valley Film Festival. Not only has her leadership and dedication to filmmaking helped the international Festival flourish, but her keen creative eye has helped the Festival choose films that would go on to win Oscars. Elton's passions and experience has allowed her to explore new avenues with the Festival, too. She initiated the Active Cinema Program, which examines artist's works with a cause, and Mind the Gap, a women's initiative that supports women filmmakers. Her long-time exposure to the Film world and knack for interviewing has also given her great opportunities to learn from successful filmmakers and luminaries such as Dustin Hoffman, James Franco, Viola Davis, Helen Mirren, and more. Zoë is infectious to be around. Her calm and gentle manner disarms those around her, allowing them to get to know her with ease. Her stories of traveling the world in search of films and accounts of her wonderful years in the Bay Area are endless. It was an honor and pleasure to document some of Elton's stories in this week's episode of Beyond the Fog Radio.

Welcome to West Coast Radio's 97th episode. This is a solo broadcast that will fill you in on everything important that's happened recently. Segment 1: OpeningEscaping is a beautiful concept. Dick Ritche (Michael Rappaport) had one of the greatest escape scenes in all of film at the end of True Romance. Speaking of great escapes, it is looking as though Brian Laundrie has gotten away with Murder and escaped into the international abyss. If I was on the run and had to disappear... Where would I go? VIETNAM! Segment 2: (Clip)The idea of selling one's soul to the devil is interesting. If one wanted to sell their soul in exchange for something, what practical steps would they take to get beelzebub to appear before them and hear the proposal?  Christopher Lee warns us of becoming too involved with the Occult. Lee talks about the only Occult book he will keep in his home. At this point in the program the audience will hear about an old southern killing curse. If you perform the cures correctly, it'll kill somebody. It you perform the curse incorrectly... It'll kill you! Segment 3: NewsSanjay Gupta vs Joe Rogan. Mass firings are incoming as 40% of Americans refuse to get vaccinate. This will lead to the greatest American standoff since the Civil War. Segment 4: Haiku of the Week Segment 5:The Person of the Program is Viola Davis from Virginia. Viola turned 110 recently and is looking great! One of the worst parts of getting that old would be to need help wiping after the restroom. (even though there is absolutely no shame with that) I have a horrible issue with being vulnerable and rejoice in the fact that bidet technology will make it so that when I am old, needing help wiping will not be an issue. Segment 6: (Clips)Upon first impression, Tik Tok seems like it is really bad for society. Here are some of my favorites! Segment 7:Frances Haugen takes on the Goliath in Facebook. Segment 8: Closing remarks Red Winds Casino's drug testing policy proves them to be an entity without creativity or common sense.

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss the first film of the Suicide Squad duology. Bad guys help a rogue group commit morally ambiguous deeds to save the world in a convoluted fashion whilst predictable music drops accompany them. Starring Ike Barinholtz, Viola Davis, Margot Robbie & Will Smith. Based on the cult DC comics created by Robert Kanigher, Ross Andru, and John Ostrander, Suicide Squad has too complicated a plot for its own good. Such a thing is a bit of a risk when you have over half a dozen characters in the titular group (see also X-Men), but a long series of character intros before the main story gets started doesn't help things. An Academy Award winner for Best Makeup and Hairstyling, Suicide Squad makes some bold visual choices; some work (Harley Quinn), some don't (Joker). A grey boring desaturated color palette during the action scenes and a theatrical cut that is softer than what director David Ayer intended (no, the Extended Cut is not his director's cut, although it's a slight improvement) don't help things either. To misquote the late Leslie Neilsen from Spy Hard, Suicide Squad is "no Gouda!"

James Gunn's The Suicide Squad features a stacked cast of very talented, accomplished actors including Margot Robbie, Idris Elba, John Cena and so many more. But do you know who winds up being a major Suicide Squad standout? Hollywood newcomer Daniela Melchior. Melchior plays Ratcatcher II in the film. She's got the ability to communicate with and control rats. When she attempts a bank heist with those rats, she's caught and thrown into Belle Reve Federal Penitentiary. However, now she's getting the opportunity to reduce her sentence. All she's got to do is take Amanda Waller's (Viola Davis) offer and join her Suicide Squad for an extremely dangerous mission. Given that I'm betting Melchior is going to wind up being a Suicide Squad favorite and the fact that I have very high hopes that the film will send her star soaring in the industry, having her as a guest on Collider Ladies Night was an absolute must. Check out this chat to hear all about how she scored her first Hollywood opportunities, how she celebrated booking Ratcatcher II, the unforgettable advice she received from Gunn, a whole bunch of The Suicide Squad spoiler details and loads more!

The Suicide Squad is about a team of super-villains do black-ops missions for the government in exchange for lighter sentences. It brings back several characters, including Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn and Viola Davis' Amanda Waller, and adds a slew more, played by people like John Cena and Idris Elba. The tone is a lot jokier, the violence more visceral — literally — and the stakes are higher, thanks to a giant alien starfish bent on world domination.
