I’m on The Online Movie Show With Phil Hall

Check it out!  Phil Hall is one of the few people to write anything about Phil Tucker’s Space Jockey and I quoted him thusly in my book.  Recently I’ve been happy to make his acquaintance and was interviewed for his wide-ranging cinema podcast, The Online Movie Show With Phil Hall.  It’s a fun little chat, and Phil asks all the right questions about Robot Monster, Phil Tucker, and related subjects.  Many thanks to Phil for having me on!

The Motorcycle Boy Reigns

I saw Rumble Fish back in 1994, was stunned, and was also stunned that hardly anyone had seen it or written about it in the decade after its release.  It’s a real love-it-or-hate-it experience, but it definitely clicked for me.  Amazing visuals and sounds, and some outright surrealism in what was ostensibly a Hollywood movie.  There’s nothing quite like it, and Criterion is bringing it to Blu-Ray in April.
