WILD IN THE STREETS returns with the first entry in Fernando Di Leo’s Milieu Trilogy: the hard hitting 1972 classic CALIBER 9 (aka MILANO CALIBRO 9)! Featuring Gastone Moschin as Ugo Piazza, a small time gangster fresh out of jail being hunted down by his former associates for stealing $300,000 that he swears he doesn’t have, it’s tough as nails and features a memorable jazz-flute tinged score by Luis Enríquez Bacalov and the Italian progressive rock group Osanna. It also features the great Mario Adorf in a gloriously unhinged performance as Rocco. CHECK IT OUT!

Watch the Milano Kalibro Kobe commercial (featuring Enzo G. Castellari) here:

Check out the Praising Kane archive right here.

PRAISING KANE returns with 1984’s RACING WITH THE MOON, a pretty darn good World War II-era coming of age film starring Sean Penn & Nicolas Cage as close friends who experience a whole lot of life’s trials and tribulations in the days before they are shipped off to the war. Directed by Richard Benjamin, it has a bunch of young familiar faces (including Crispin Glover and Michael Madsen), and clearly has a lot of empathy for its mixed up central characters. Oh, and of course Carol Kane is in there as well in a small – but memorable – role. All that and the latest Carol Kane news so CHECK IT OUT.

Starring Tim Robbins, Paul Newman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Bruce Campbell, and – of course – Steve Buscemi, it was a big-budget flop for the Coens, despite roping in their pal Sam Raimi to co-write.

After a less-then-fruitful experience in the US (filming THE BIG BRAWL and THE CANNONBALL RUN), Jackie returned to Hong Kong with a blank check from Golden Harvest and a chip on his shoulder. The result was plenty of bumps, bruises and 1982’s DRAGON LORD, which serves as a transitionary period between the old-school kung fu films of his past and the stunt-heavy films (with higher production value) that would define his work in the 1980s. In this episode of WE DO OUR OWN STUNTS we break down the good and bad of DRAGON LORD, its two cuts, and the two bravura sequences within. LISTEN!

Here’s the behind-the-scenes segment on Jackie making DRAGON LORD from the TV program YOU ASKED FOR IT

Featuring Belmondo as Commissioner Philippe Jordan, a tough as nails cop who – wait for it – plays by his own rules, and those rules involve running through traffic, jumping out of helicopters, and just straight up murdering dudes with his car! It’s good, clean, semi-fascistic fun and our hosts feel a bit guilty about how much fun it is. Oh well! Enjoy!
