MoP 040: Beautiful Blondes & Neurotic Cowboys: 10 Underappreciated Westerns

Like the screwball comedy and the musical, The Western would seem to be a dead genre. While every so often we get a "revisionist" take, like The Coen Brothers' True Grit or Tarantino's Hateful 8, still the western seems to belong to a by-gone era. However, the Western being the quintessential American genre, depicting the very origins of American identity, it arguably has more relevancy today than at any other time. In this episode, Azed and Jay sift through the annals of film history and pluck out their favourite underappreciated Westerns. No Rio Bravo or The Searchers here, these meta-westerns expose the underlying issues of race, class and gender that form the ethos of American "exceptionalism" and the paradoxical idea that history's greatest democracy somehow co-exists with it's oligarchic underpinnings. Films covered in this episode: Jay's Picks: Two Mules for Sister Sarah (1970, d: Don Siegel), Comanche Station(1960, d: Bud Boetticher), Persued(1947, d: Raoul Walsh), TheMissouri Breaks(1976, d: Arthur Penn)and Bend of the River(1952, d: Anthony Mann).Azed's picks: The Beautiful Blonde from Bashful Bend(1949,d: Preston Sturges),Forty Guns (1957, d: Samuel Fuller), Little Big Man(1971, d: Arthur Penn),Heaven's Gate(1980, d; Michael Cimino)and The Ox Bow Incident(1947, d: William A. Wellman)

MoP 039: Bare Feet and Bad Motherf***ers - The Cinema of Quentin Tarantino (Part Two)

As promised this episode is Part Two of our Tarantino retrospective where we tackle some of the most important questions in the history of the podcast. Will Azed let Jay get a word in edgewise? Will Jay start a race war by agreeing too much with Kieran and not enough with Omar and Azed? Will Tarantino get one of us to use the "n word"? And is Kieran Dick his real name? The answers; no, maybe, yes (Omar) and he'll probably kill me for even divulging the possibility of such a thing (at the very least he might crush my windpipe or maybe cleave a hamstring). Aside from all the violence and racial tension we discuss every film between Kill Bill and Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood developing a deeper understanding of the themes and methods behind Tarantino's filmography. For discussions of Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown check out Part One. Once again, if you're in a particularly Tarantino-esque mood you can check out a playlist Jay made for a fictional Tarantino film right here. It's filled with all kinds of the funk, psych, soul, surf, pop nuggets that Quentin packs into his films (including a smattering of Ennio Morricone of course).

MoP 038: Bare Feet and Bad Motherf***ers - The Cinema of Quentin Tarantino (Part One)

Welcome back to another episode of Mutiny of Preverts where we scratch that preverted itch for all you cinema lovers out there! In this episode we brought back two of our favourite guests in Omar Majeed and Kieran Dick to break down the career of Quentin Tarantino. We get into some heated debates regarding the merit and intentionality behind some of his biggest hits. Is he a straight forward revisionist or is he engaging in the rich history of uchronia, a kind of speculative fiction that explores alternate histories of our world? We tackle that question in a general discussion then get into a film by film breakdown from Reservoir Dogs to Jackie Brown (and even a little nubbin of content covering My Best Friend's Birthday, his debut short film). In Part Two we'll cover the rest of his filmography from Kill Bill to Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood. As an extra treat Jay put together a playlist of a fictional Tarantino soundtrack featuring all kinds of the funk, psych, soul, surf, pop nuggets that Quentin packs into every frame of his films (including a smattering of Ennio Morricone of course). Click here to check it out.

MoP 037: The OG American Psycho-Nicolas Cage and Vampire's Kiss

Pandemic Shmandemic! MoP will courageously continue to do our show as a way of giving back to the 70-80 listeners who continue to support us. So here it is, the long-awaited Nicolas Cage episode, focusing on his "infamous" performance in the much maligned 1988 film Vampire's Kiss (dir.Robert Bierman). Azed and Jayenthusiastically defend the film as deeper than merely highly meme-able kitsch, while our guest Brooklyn filmmaker and bon vivant, Keiran Dick declares, "it's not a good movie, you guys know that". We also discuss other great and not so great Cage performances and dissect his unique acting style. Other topics covered in this episode: Life during lock down, Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide, DC Cab and Keiran un-ironically asking us which one film we would take into the underground bunker? MoP BONUS FEATURE: New recipes for Bat soup and Pangolin burgers!

MoP 036: 2020 Oscar Bitch Fest!

The Academy Awards caused a stir on the twitter sphere by awarding South Korean film, Parasite with Oscars in 4 major categories (Best Picture,Best Director,Best Original Screenplay, andBest International Feature Film). Usually, we at MoP love to spew vitriol and general 'bitch-iness" at the Oscars, but this year our sneering contempt was tempered by this show of authentic "wokeness". On this episode, Azed and Jay are joined by guest critic, Tom Alexander, Director of Theatrical Releasing at Mongrel Media, as they cover the 9 films nominated this year, pick their personal fav's and almost come to fisticuffs over Jay's (traitorous?) change of heart about Joker. Attorney Bill Barr is launching an investigation into Jay and has already revealed that he once hired prostitutes to urinate on a picture of Martin Scorsese.

MoP 35: Best Films of the 2010s

After a substantial hiatus the Preverts are back! And we've founded a brand new awards ceremony called The Preversions with all the prestige of the East Tampa Film Critics Association and the popularity of the Films for Incels subreddit. Some of the many categories include; Most Crypto-Fascist Film, Best Film That Made You Skip Pornhub That Day, Most Indelible Image, Most Depressing Film, Best Film You Don't Understand and a whole bunch more! We also get into larger discussions about trends throughout the decade that we liked such as the accessibility of certain tools that made the films of Don Hertzfeldt possible or that we didn't care for like the box office dominance of movies that Scorsese would refer to as "theme park rides". Within this construct we cover many of the decades most discussed films from Joker to Holy Motors and Birdman to Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives. It's a sprawling episode that only begins to cover the past decade in film that gave us some of th...

MoP 034: REPEAT BROADCAST- The Obligatory Christmas Episosde

We will back with a new episode in early 2020. Meantime, here's our Christmas movies episode from last year with special guest, director Sean Cisterna, currently killing it with his latest film, From the Vine (https://mythicproductions.ca/joe-pantoliano-to-star-in-mythic-productions-wine-drama-from-the-vine-came-the-grape/). Enjoy and happy whatever you do! Why are so many Christmas movies about suicide, despair, poverty and criminality? Isn't it supposed to be all about peace, love and hope? In this episode , Azed and Jay welcome filmmaker, Sean Cisterna (Kiss and Cry) to discuss their favourite Christmas movies. Sean breaks down his chosen favourite,Gremlins, to reveal the fascinating subtext woven deep in this seemingly benign monster movie. Jay unearths an obscure Ukrainian Christmas movie calledMelody for a Street Organ, and Azed chooses a Jimmy Stewart Christmas classic, but not the one you're thinking about. Also, in the spirit of the holidays, we fully analyse the alternative version of 'Jingle Bells' and attempt to comprehend what it is that is causing Batman to smell. Could it be a glandular issue?

MoP 032: HORROR REVISITED!

MoP is on a bit of a break, and will be back in December with a new episode! In the meantime, and just in time for Halloween, we're re-releasing our infamous "Heuristics of Horror" episode from last year. Enjoy! In this episode of MoP, we look beyond the horror canon and unearth obscure, international and arty horror films that make us pee our pants (Although Jay pees his pants on every episode. I have urged him to see a urologist but he's stuck in his ways). Some of the horror gems discussed in this episode: two Larry Cohen films, It's Alive and God Told Me To, Brian DePalma's Sisters, Cure directed by Kiyoshi Kurosawa, House byNobuhiko Ôbayashi and more. Then, we delve deep into our chosen films Michael Hanke's Funny Games and Michele Soavi's Dellamorte Dellamore.

MoP 031: Underappreciated Film Noir and the Fantasy of the Femme Fatale

In a creepy occurrence of synchronicity Jay and Azed choose a couple of noir films that compliment each other a little too well. To the point where doctors have mandated a period of separation for the mental health of both to avoid a potentially catastrophic merging of their identities. But before the state got involved and surgically separated the two hosts and lucky for you listeners the pair managed to record this podcast on Otto Preminger's Angel Face and John M. Stahl's Leave Her to Heaven first. Two noirs that took the iconic femme fatale character to new and disturbing depths, brilliantly played by Jean Simmons and Gene Tierney. See, even the actresses names are the same! Before they get into the noir discussion special guest and filmmaker Kieran Dick joins Azed and Jay to tell them just how terribly wrong they've been this whole time. In particular Kieran (a Philip K. Dick expert) digs back into the Blade Runner episode and gives some insight and alternate reads on some of the topics that were discussed. And yes they all somehow managed to bring up Twin Peaks again (multiple times!).

MoP 030: "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe": The Resentment of White Power in Blade Runner

Blade Runner is an undeniable sci-fi classic, but is it also a white nationalist dog whistle cloaked in super cool, neo-noir set design? Azed & Jay dive deep into the whole Blade Runner phenomenon and both find a lot they hadn't seen in previous viewings. FromKierkegaard's concept of ressentiment to why Hitler would have been the best Pokeman Go player, we cover it all. Also, Azed's son, Ishmael, gives us his take on our Twin Peaks episode and geeks out with a Twin Peaks/Lord of the Rings breakdown.
