Late Cinema Podcast
Third time's the charm! Today Charlie welcomes American Cinemateque envoy and all-around cinema savant Will Morris to talk about the overlooked late career of David Cronenberg. These more subdued, cerebral films have not gotten their proper due in relief to his much-loved earlier films. Why is that? What can we do to change it? They use Marshall McLuhan's The Medium is the Message as a critical tool to dissect Cronenberg's cinema, covering NAKED LUNCH, M. BUTTERFLY, CRASH, eXistenZ, SPIDER, A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE, EASTERN PROMISES, A DANGEROUS METHOD, COSMPOLIS, & MAPS TO THE STARS. (They also can't help but talk about some of the early ones, including his obscure drag race flick FAST COMPANY.) Join them as they diagnose of contagious case of Late Cinema.
