American actor, producer, screenwriter and director
There's something audacious about making an over-three-hour film lionizing American Communists and the Russian Revolution and releasing it in the same year Ronald Reagan comes to power, but Warren Beatty's epic balances romance, politics, and historical sweep in a way that recalls films like Lawrence of Arabia and Gone With the Wind, but without all the ambient racism. Written, directed, and starring Beatty as journalist and party leader John Reed, with Diane Keaton as his wife, the writer Louise Bryant, and Jack Nicholson as the playwrite Eugene O'Neill.

Pour s'abonner, c'est très simple, il suffit de cliquer sur le lien suivant : https://m.audiomeans.fr/s/S-tavkjvmo La nouvelle vague européenne à beaucoup influencé les réalisateurs du Nouvel Hollywood dans la mesure où eux aussi, ont compris qu'ils pouvaient casser les codes et imposer un nouveau mouvement dans le secteur du cinéma. Aux Etats-Unis, on copie la nouvelle vague européenne pour rompre avec les bases classiques de rythme des films de l'époque. On a de nouveaux processus d'écriture et on a une redéfinition du principe même du personnage : on arrête de les glorifier et on pose des anti-héros, ce qui permet au spectateur de s'identifier en eux. On les voit surtout dans les films de guerre qui font référence au Vietnam : les soldats deviennent des victimes d'une guerre absurde. On montre les soldats comme tout le monde, avec des forces et des faiblesses. Surtout que dans les années 50-60, ce n'est pas l'idéal à Hollywood et la télévision est en plein boom, le cinéma ne parait plus être quelque chose en raccord avec son temps. De nombreux thèmes sont encore très tabous comme la drogue, le sexe ou la violence, voire la nudité. A la fin des années 60, prise de conscience : il faut créer un cinéma qui ressemble à la nouvelle jeunesse de ce pays qui flotte dans un contexte politique et social difficile… C'est cette histoire, avec les films emblématiques que nous allons vous raconter dans cette émission.

Holmberg's Morning Sickness - Opening Break - Thursday November 10, 2022
[Apologies for the audio - it was raining pretty hard here and the power kept cutting off]“We had to do something [in Bush v. Gore], because countries were laughing at us. France was laughing at us.” ― Antonin Scalia, The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme CourtI grew up in the 1980s thinking my vote didn't matter. I became an “election denier” because that is what the Democrats have always been. I grew up with cynicism and mild hatred of the government. My childhood was spent living through the last time the Democrats took a major fall, from Richard Nixon to Ronald Reagan with Watergate and Carter in between. Democrats felt hopeless until Bill Clinton came along in 1992. He was the first Democrat to serve two full terms since FDR. But by 1999, the cynicism was back because Bill Clinton had been impeached, the party humiliated, and our last best hope hung on the Vice President, Al Gore, the man with no charisma to speak of. I was one of those angry Democrats in 2000 who watched the Supreme Court stop counting ballots that handed the presidency to George W. Bush. We weren't thinking about the reasons Gore might have lost, like gun control. We blamed the Court, and we blamed Florida. We blamed Ralph Nader. We blamed everyone but ourselves. The Supreme Court was corrupt, we believed. So were all of those operatives in the GOP that rigged the election for Bush. A rigged election would result in two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. If only the Supreme Court hadn't “selected” Bush. I remember Oliver Stone's film Nixon, his best, which suggested that Nixon had JFK assassinated so he could one day rise. And rise he did. To Stone, though, that caused the Vietnam war and all the ravages that followed. That is some election-denying. Nixon himself had believed that the 1960 election had been rigged. After all, he and Trump are still the only two people to have won Florida, Iowa, and Ohio and lost the presidency. Nixon chose not to object to any of it. Trump chose to fight. Back then, the Left felt Nixon's win was so destructive that it ended everything for them: their optimism and their counter-culture revolution. Warren Beatty made the film Shampoo to suggest that they were all involved in silly narcissistic games before Nixon won and the world ended. They all blamed Nixon for Vietnam. But they also resented him for ending the 1960s for good. Coming out of the 2000 election, our main complaint was that Gore gave in too easily and quickly. Many of us thought he should have dug his heels in and fought harder and that we all should have been more insistent in objecting. That's another word for protests. We didn't because we were still burned from the landslide loss in 1972, blamed on the the Left's anti-war protests.Some protests started around that time, like against the World Trade Organization. But it wouldn't be until the $700 billion bailout that a whole protest movement would rise, Occupy Wall Street on the Left, and eventually, the Tea Party would form on the Right. Something was happening that would only grow as more people got online and were more connected than ever before. By 2016, we were again in a protesting state of mind, and we believed America belonged not to Trump, not to his supporters. But to us. Anyone who pretends like we accepted Trump's win is lying. There has never been an elected president with that many forces working together to take him out of office. Never. There have never been worldwide protests against the election of a US president. There have never been the kinds of violent protests we had in this country over an elected president. We didn't hold “not my president” rallies and pay investigators to see if Russians had hacked voting machines. We never had nervous breakdowns, we never had so many marches. Clearly, we all viewed Trump's win as an invasion of a foreign entity, or a virus, that had to be immediately purged. We did not accept him as the legitimate president. We were ELECTION DENIERS. From The Hill:“According to data from the latest Harvard-Harris poll provided exclusively to The Hill, 68 percent of voters said Democrats have not accepted that Trump won fairly and is a legitimate president.That figure includes 69 percent of Republicans, 69 percent of independents and 65 percent of Democrats.”One of the reasons Kari Lake is such a strong candidate is that she comes from the media and has no problem calling them out on their hypocrisy and their double standard:It was much bigger than a violent riot at the Capitol and lawsuits by Trump and his supporters who insisted there was “widespread fraud.” No, the FBI was involved when the establishment got in on it. The media was on board. And by 2020, they were willing to crash the economy to ensure Trump was brought down.We were now not only of a protesting state of mind, but of a revolutionary state of mind. We called Trump an “existential threat” because waves of mass hysteria consumed us for the four years he was in office. The Me Too movement and, eventually, the Black Lives Matter movement would lead to witch hunts, and mass firings, and a climate of fear. We all believed that all we had to do was get rid of Trump, and everything would return to normal. If you take the largest protests in American history under the four years Trump was in power and then think about the Summer of 2020, you can see how the Left of this country was ready for Civil War just to take Trump out of power.The weird thing was that they could not paint the Trump supporters as equally violent. The Proud Boys showed up; there were sometimes brawls. They would be armed and forming a kind of citizen army to protect property, like Kyle Rittenhouse. But they weren't violent the same way the Left had become. They weren't burning buildings or assaulting police officers.In fact, if anything, they prided themselves on being non-violent. That is why January 6th was so out of character for them. Even a large protest in DC that day was out of character for them. It meant a lot to have their collective voices heard.I'd been, out of curiosity, following the Stop the Steal movement on The War Room podcast. I knew what they were planning to do. They wanted to have Senators Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz debate how the election laws had been suddenly altered, using COVID as the pretext. Trump supporters were watching his speech, not planning to bust into the Capitol and stop the count, certainly not to overthrow the government. That is its own “big lie,” and it's ugly. These are patriots who love their country. The last thing they would want to do is overthrow or destroy it. Whatever was going on with the Oathkeepers, and the breach had nothing directly to do with Trump and seemed to be driven by someone else's plan. The only explanation was that the FBI had to have been involved. When you read up on the Gretchen Whitmer kidnapping story in Esquire, where there were more informants than kidnappers, it's clear that this FBI was prepared to go the distance to do what they could to meddle in the 2020 election. That story will not be told for a while, but if the GOP takes the House, maybe it will. For four years, Trump supporters watched their president attacked every day, with everything he said cherry-picked and thrown into the media churn to drive the news cycle. They watched them mock Kellyanne Conway's age and Sarah Huckabee Sanders' makeup, the size of Trump's hands, his hair, his family. Since Trump was never accepted as the legitimate president, no fashion magazine would have Melania Trump on the cover. To do so was to met with vicious attacks on Twitter. The idea that the President deserved respect from the country was abandoned. Democracy? What Democracy? We're in charge. Get out of our country. Get out of our White House. The one thing they couldn't do, though, was defeat Trump. They still can't. It took $400 million to fund private companies to collect ballots, change election laws in the swing states, and a completely biased propaganda news media to twist the narrative and gaslight the public to make sure everyone knew what to do on Election day. And even then, Biden barely won.Democracy says that if someone campaigns to win the vote of the people, then that vote should be respected. Democrats don't believe that, unless a Democrat is in power. Now, they're trying everything they can to subvert Democracy to block Trump from even making a run for office. Does that sound like people who have faith in American elections? But good luck trying to have this conversation with anyone on the Left. They will shut you down. Their game is that they get to say what happened, how it happened and why it happened. They are fed a narrative that they believe. Few will question any of it for fear of being called a “conspiracy theorist.” If you bring up the hypocrisy of 2016 and 2020, Democrats will always say, “but we didn't breach the Capitol.” They might not have breached the Capitol on Inauguration Day, but they breached the Capitol in Michigan and Wisconsin in years prior: Then they say, well we weren't trying to stop the peaceful transfer of power. Okay, but what do you call what happened with Justice Kavanaugh? What do you call pressuring Senators to vote your way?When you watch the Kavanaugh hearing back, it's easy to see just how unhinged the Left already was. Then they will next say that they aren't politically violent. But we know they are:The assassin who wanted to kill Kavanaugh had zip ties. So did the man who broke into the Pelosi home. Do you think the media treated these two incidents similarly? I know the people whose power might be challenged tonight will not take it well. Just look at recent history. They've successfully flipped the script to make MAGA the violent side, the “election-denying” side. But in the next few years, we'll see protests that make 2020 look like child's play. When laws start to change, and the Conservatives start pulling our country Right, those who are used to having control of everything aren't going to go along with a “peaceful transfer of power.” For years after Reagan won in 1980, the Left was powerless. By the time Barack Obama won in 2008, they could take control of nearly every corner of American life, culturally and politically. They influenced and redefined almost everything. They built an empire - a new “shining city on the hill.” To hold onto that, they have been willing to take political protests to the extreme, exploit our formerly objective media, and outright lie about the people they share this country with. But worst of all, they have been consumed by fear. They have become so panicked they imagine all sorts of terrible things. They see it in their mind's eye, and to them, it's real, just like witches flying around Salem and “spectral evidence,” which is evidence you can't see but can only imagine. They never had a utopia to lose so they don't know how to handle it. They just want to be what they used to be. They want to be admired as the best and the brightest, living their best lives, showcasing those lives on social media, tinkering with their re-imagined America, with a president they like and admire watching over them. Now, their utopia is crumbling. The Hillary feminist that represents the base of the Democratic Party is now being asked to step aside for transgender rights. That's why Gretchen Whitmer has to say, “People with periods.” The Hillary feminist that marched with the pink hats and screamed at Kavanaugh is fading. That, probably more than anything else, marks a major pendulum shift they never saw coming.So who are they now? How do they define themselves? They can only see Trump. The thing they fear. It's all Trump all the time. Their unprecedented prime-time show trial did the exact opposite of what they thought it would do. They expected it would look important, which would scare his supporters away. But all it did was make him look more powerful. Worse, it made our country look ridiculous, weak, and terrified. Whatever you might think of Trump, the fact that he looms as large as he does proves that there is no leadership on the Left. As of writing this, I do not know how the midterm elections will turn out. But I know that the people who control the Democrats now, the loudest voices on Twitter, and the massive media machine that does their bidding are fueled by an ongoing hysteria based on ongoing delusions.They have gone all the way to the most extreme every time. They've been this afraid for six years since Trump won. They are strung out, desperate. How much longer before they upend American Democracy completely to make sure nobody like Trump ever has a shot at running for president? Their fear will get worse until they understand that this country, its culture, and its government, economy, and history don't just belong to them. It belongs to all of us. The grassroots movement on the Right challenging them today is not going anywhere any time soon.

In 1991, Warren Beatty jumped onto the big screen to portray one the most feared and most famous mobsters of all time...Bugsy. The film, directed by Barry Levinson and co-starring Annette Bening (as Bugsy's longtime girlfriend, Virginia Hill) tells the story of Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel and his role in the creation of The Flamingo and the building of Las Vegas as an "oasis in the desert". Bugsy was minor hit, grossing just over $49 Million at the box office, receiving high praise from critics, and garnering several Academy Award & Golden Globe nominations including a Golden Globe win for "Best Picture - Drama". But despite all these accolades, just how historically accurate was the film? My guest for this episode of the podcast is here to tell us. Making his FOURTH appearance on the podcast is Geoff Schumacher, the Vice President of Exhibits and Programs at the Mob Museum in Las Vegas. Geoff was kind enough to join me once again to help separate fact from fiction when it comes to the story of Bugsy Siegel. Did Bugsy actually try to get into acting during his time in Hollywood? Who actually came up with the idea for The Flamingo? And was opening night at the casino really a total flop? If you want to learn more about Bugsy & his associates and their place in Las Vegas history, plan a visit to the Mob Museum on your next Vegas vacation. You can also follow the Mob Museum on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Mark and special guest host horror director Dustin Ferguson welcomed the star of Halloween III : Season of the Witch Stacey Nelkin to the lighter side of the dark side. Stacey candidly talked about everything in her extraordinary life and career from dating Woody Allen, Warren Beatty, Bill Wyman, Barry Bostwick and Perry King to acting with Malcolm McDowell, Martin Mull, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Ron Liebman, Bette Midler, Mick Jagger, Tony Danza and Danny Devito, what it was like to act with a chimp and smoke weed with Cheech and Chong, as well as answering all sorts of questions about Halloween III from her "no nipple clause" to acting with her head sticking up from a hole in the ground.

Who's that watching you from across the street? Is someone listening in to your private conversation? Did someone put something in your drink? Why is everyone out to get you? These are all questions that swirl in the minds of the conspiratorial and also in the cave this time as we look at two EXCELLENT conspiracy-related films. We start off with 1974's The Parallax View, directed by the legendary Alan J. Pakula and starring the also-legendary Warren Beatty. This is such a great piece of 70's cinema and is filled with wonderful moments, great acting and incredible dialogue. We follow that up with 1977's Capricorn One from ANOTHER legend, Mr. Peter Hyams and featuring a star-studded cast headed up by Hal Holbrook, James Brolin and Elliott Gould! It is the tale of a planned mission to the planet Mars which is secretly cancelled and faked because of safety issues. The astronauts find themselves in grave danger because they know too much and an amazing chase through the desert ensues. This is awesome, pulpy fun that still manages to be smart. We loved both of these movies and recommend them heartily! We then proceed to list the various things we've been watching for fun. Please let us know what you thought of the show, and send us some suggestions for future episodes. You can email us at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Dave is under the weather this week, so Evan and Megan fly duo to review the movies. First up is Jennifer Kaytin Robinson's candy coated homage to 90s teen films, DO REVENGE (2:18), which is about two high schoolers (Camila Mendes and Maya Hawke) who team up to get revenge on the classmates who wronged them. Then we discuss Claire Denis's low octane thriller STARS AT NOON (20:33), which is about an American and Brit (Margaret Qualley and Joe Alwyn) in Nicaragua who fall for each other and must immediately flee from the authorities. And in this week's Patreon exclusive audio, we talk about a Patron's choice: Warren Beatty's 1990 comic book film DICK TRACY! Join Our Patreon Buy Spoilerpiece Merch
From housebound to pop superstar, Taylor Dayne is most well-known for her hit “Tell It to My Heart,” which made her an overnight sensation in 1987. Listen in as she tells Gabe that before her rise to stardom, she struggled with anxiety and agoraphobia so severe, she was often housebound. Taylor explains when her symptoms started, how she treated them, and how she is doing now. To learn more -- or read the transcript -- please visit the official episode page. Guest Bio Taylor Dayne is an American pop icon with a career spanning 3 decades. Taylor's groundbreaking debut single “Tell It To My Heart” turned her into an overnight star in 1987. She followed the smash hit with seventeen Top 20 singles over the course of her career. Taylor has sold over 75 million albums and singles worldwide, earned three Grammy nominations, an American Music Award, multiple New York Music Awards, received New York Music Hall of Fame honors, and ranked as the Number 18 Female Dance artist of all time by “Rolling Stone” magazine. She is one of the very few artists in musical history to successfully cross over into almost every musical genre and chart with hit singles in Pop, Dance, R&B, Adult Contemporary, and Rock. Taylor has appeared in film, TV and stage, from Broadway favorites like Elton John's award-winning production of “Aida,” and Mel Brooks' “Archie” and “Mehitable,” to working with legendary composer Jule Styne to reprise the role of Fanny Brice on Broadway. Taylor also appeared in movies including “Love Affair” with Warren Beatty and Annette Benning and co-starred in Denis Leary's TV drama “Rescue Me.” She also starred in the HBO film “STAG” and co-starred on Showtime's original series “Rude Awakening.” Her growth as an artist was enhanced by the birth of her twins in early 2002. Her voice became stronger and more meaningful as she took on single motherhood, empowerment, surrogacy, and parenthood head-on, becoming a voice and an advocate for working woman, same sex marriage, parenting and fertility. Her 2016 TEDWomen talk opened her career to more speaking engagements, inspirational and monumental moments, and paved the way to her memoir. This past summer she released a new single called “Please” and is working on anticipated new music. In addition, in September 2020, she competed in the Fox hit show “The Masked Singer” for the 4th season. She competed as PopCorn and made it to the semifinals.

As our listeners know, Martini Giant loves the films of the 1970s more than any other decade - and with tonight's double feature, we take a look at the one-two punch that saved the studios and changed our understanding of what movies could be: Arthur Penn's brutal, sultry, and utterly game-changing Bonnie & Clyde, starring Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty - and the elegiac counterculture masterpiece Easy Rider directed by and starring Dennis Hopper, with iconic performances by Peter Fonda and Jack Nicholson!

We've traveled back to 1987 to wax ecstatic about Elaine May's maligned box office failure, Ishtar. We match May's compassion for the brashly stupid Chuck and Lyle (played by Dustin Hoffman and Warren Beatty, respectively) as Chad explains his personal connection to the movie, Veronica wonders how (and if) the movie successfully balances its many threads, and guest Frank Falisi lays out his theory that this is a high musical à la Vincente Minnelli.Some further reading that we reference on the show: Peter Biskind's account of the film–excerpted from Star, his Beatty biography–for Vanity Fair, enthusiast Richard Brody speaking with Elaine May for the New Yorker, and Chad's own Ishtar essay, “But We Can Sing Our Hearts Out,” featured in our 2019 issue dedicated to May's movies & legacy.The Bright Wall/Dark Room Podcast is co-hosted by Veronica Fitzpatrick and Chad Perman and produced and edited by Eli Sands.

Critically-acclaimed NAACP Image and SAG Award-Winning actor, producer, activist and author Isaiah Washington has been a star of stage, film, and television for nearly three decades. A veteran of several Spike Lee films, Washington has starred alongside such actors as Clint Eastwood, Harrison Ford, Warren Beatty, George Clooney, William H. Macy, Steven Seagal, Jet Li, Halle Berry, and Jennifer Lopez, successfully carving a definitive niche for himself as a formidable talent. Through a natural progression, he branched into the development end of the business, including executive producing the critically acclaimed 2013 film “Blue Caprice.” The Texas native is best known for his roles as Dr. Preston Burke on the ABC's “Grey's Anatomy,” five seasons as Chancellor Thelonius Jaha on the CW Network and Netflix hit sci-fi series “The 100” and currently starring as Mayor Tydell Ruffin, Sr. on the STARZ mega-hit series “P-Valley.” Washington made his directorial debut writing and directing the much-anticipated upcoming movie “Corsicana” starring as the legendary Deputy US Marshal Bass Reeves. Washington stopped by for a great conversation about Corsicana, his experiences as a writer, director, actor, and humanitarian initiatives.

In his new book, From Hollywood with Love, critic Scott Meslow lays out two ways to tell if a given movie is a rom-com. First, his own definition: “A romantic comedy is a movie where (1) the central plot is focused on at least one romantic love story; and (2) the goal is to make you laugh at least as much as the goal is to make you cry.” And then, The Donald Petrie Test, named for the director of some rom-coms, like Mystic Pizza and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, but also some edge cases, like Miss Congeniality and Grumpy Old Men: “If you removed the love story from this [comedy], would you still have a movie? If the answer is no, it's a romantic comedy. […] If the answer is yes, it's a comedy with a romantic subplot.” So those are the litmus tests. Now, does that make Broadcast News a rom-com, or no? What about Annie Hall? Or something like Grosse Pointe Blank? How about His Girl Friday? Or even, actually, Love Actually? This hour, a deconstruction — and celebration — of the romantic comedy. Some favorite rom-coms from some of the people on this show: Illeana DouglasTheodora Goes Wild (1936)Bringing Up Baby (1938)Ninotchka (1939)Too Many Husbands (1940)The More the Merrier (1943)Christmas in Connecticut (1945)Cluny Brown (1946)Pillow Talk (1959)The Apartment (1960)What's Up, Doc? (1972)Foul Play (1978)Arthur (1981) David EdelsteinTrouble in Paradise (1932)The Awful Truth (1937)Ninotchka (1939)Midnight (1939)The Lady Eve (1941)His Girl Friday (1940)The Philadelphia Story (1940)The Shop Around the Corner (1940)Cluny Brown (1946) Scott Meslow's five recommended under-seen rom-coms from the past decade Populaire (2012)A zippy, ultra-stylish French rom-com about the romance between a dapper boss and his secretary, set amid the long-forgotten craze for competitive speed typing. Sleeping with Other People (2015)Alison Brie and Jason Sudeikis are at the peak of their charms in this witty rom-com about two friends who reunite years after losing their virginities to each other — the rare rom-com to get the balance of raunchy and sweet just right. Man Up (2015)Ignore the lame title — this rom-com, in which Lake Bell plays an unlucky-in-love woman who pretends to be a man's blind date, is pure, fizzy fun (and is also the only rom-com I've seen to borrow a plot point from The Silence of the Lambs). Destination Wedding (2018)Other critics weren't as high on this extremely stripped down rom-com, in which Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves snark their way through a wedding they'd both prefer not to be attending — but in a genre in which so many characters have “negative” qualities that are actually just adorable, I appreciated this movie's deliberately sour tone. Plus One (2019)A delightfully unapologetic throwback to the genre's '90s heyday, but with a modern touch, as two platonic friends (Jack Quaid and Maya Erskine) agree to be each other's plus-ones for a packed wedding season before realizing they may actually have a spark after all. Colin's 5 (or 6) favorite rom-coms Heaven Can Wait (1978)I realize this is assailable on the basis of Julie Christie not being an especially memorable character and getting less screen time than, say, Jack Warden. Warren Beatty is so vain, he probably thinks this movie is about him, and he's sort of right. But it is very nearly perfect and enriched by an amazing ensemble of supporting players. Silver Linings Playbook (2012)I surprised myself by ranking SLP this high, but I love the frank and funny handling of mental illness and its indistinguishability from being an Eagles fan. I've seen it quite a few times, and I invariably cry at the end. I love what J-Law does with her part, and Chris Tucker and John Ortiz are standouts among the fine supporting cast. Shout out to Kevin Lowry for his work as dolly grip on the “A” camera. The Lady Eve (1941) / Intolerable Cruelty (2003)These are both “rom-cons” involving grifts by a femme fatale who is usually a few steps ahead of the male lead. Barbara Stanwyck actually generates more sexual heat than the smoldering Catherine Zeta-Jones. She was still doing that 42 years later, hitting on a rain-streaked, bare-chested priest played by Richard Chamberlain in The Thorn Birds. But I do love Intolerable Cruelty. I think it's the only Coen brothers rom-com and definitely an homage to the '30s and '40s. Say Anything (1989)I loved John Cusack during this period. A few years later, I was seeing a psychotherapist who looked exactly like him. It was distracting. I've learned that Cusack didn't really see himself as a romcom person and even pushed back against the iconic boombox scene. That has something to do with why this movie works so well. Bringing Up Baby (1938)Grant. Hepburn. Two leopards. Thirty pounds of sirloin. What's not to love?

We were in the mood for a Madonna movie, so went with 1990's Dick Tracy. Starring and directed by Warren Beatty it features Madonna as Breathless Mahoney, a sultry red lipped lounge singer, an over the top Al Pacino doing what he does best mobster extraordinaire, and lots of vivid colors and crazy makeup to make all the gangsters in this 1930s era romp looked pretty gnarly and mean. It also feels like a mini musical with the injection of a few original songs by Stephen Sondheim. We struggled with the plot on this one, so apologies in advance, but mobster movies, ooof confusinggggg. We'll talk about those Warren Beatty lothario rumors (13,000 sexual partners, oh boy!), Sweetie maybe retells an anecdote about being disappointed by Al Capone's Pizza, and we try to play the "What Would Your Mobster Name Be?", but are sorely disappointed with the results.

In this episode we discuss two ground-breaking films from 1967: Bonnie and Clyde and The Graduate. We discuss the changing landscape of Hollywood films to include more violence and sexual themes in movies, but especially in the films of 1967.

Welcome back to Forbidden Cinema. On our going deeper episodes, Zack goes into deep research mode to find the answers to questions you never thought to ask. Sometimes the answers are fascinating. Sometimes they are so horrifying that you wish we hadn't bothered. This week we look start to look at the career of Warren Beatty, but get distracted by how many famous lady's he had affairs with. Then we look at the rights and box office, and everybody's gets dizzy so we move on. We get distracted by the complex and potentially problematic career of Sean Young. Then we deep dive Charlie Korsmo's (The Kid) CV and find disturbingly too much contact info. We look at the suggested searches after all this Dick Tracy nonsense. We try to deep dive the career of Madonna, but are too star struck to function. We spend a lot of time looking at the fashion, cars, and sets. In our "In Print" segment, we realize that we have pretty much worn out Playboy magazine from 1990, so Zack go crazy deep looking at the issue of the Washington PA Observer Reporter from the week this movie came out. It turns out that things have changed quite a bit since 1990.

Quick-witted, loyal, caring, and so very talented - this week, I was thrilled to welcome one of my best pals and honorary brothers back to the podcast. An actor, former host of the excellent Game Show Network series "Get a Clue," and longtime improv teacher at Second City, plus a writer, producer, entrepreneur, and gifted impressionist who regularly turns my voicemail into the funniest comedy club in the world, Rob Belushi is a man who wears many hats. In the past, you've heard him share his insights as a knowledgeable film lover in his very first episode way back in 2020 and then twice last year as well, first lending his expertise as the host of "Get a Clue" for an episode I did on Game Show Movies, and then later in our season two finale, Rob joined me along with his inspiring, intelligent, and very lovely mother Sandi to tease and interrogate her both about her personal life as well as her passion for her favorite film - Warren Beatty's REDS. A huge fan of the endlessly innovative Steven Soderbergh's work - particularly his exceptionally clever late '90s period, in this very funny, thoughtful, and emotional episode, which clocks in at well over two hours, Rob and I celebrate and study the films OUT OF SIGHT, THE LIMEY, ERIN BROCKOVICH, and TRAFFIC. Whether he's opening up to reveal his own personal experiences with addiction and recovery or appreciating the humanity we see in the decent outsiders and strong female leads trying to connect and do right in these works, it's an eye-opening, passionate conversation that fans of Soderbergh, in particular, will love.
