On this episode of The Films of John Singleton we’re doubling up one of his most interesting – and prescient – features with a film from one of the biggest franchises of all time! We start by taking a look at 1995’s HIGHER LEARNING, a sometimes stodgy but ultimately worthwhile look at the various troubles and conflicts that occur among a group of college freshmen. Then we move onto the eye-blistering neon of the big-budget 2003 sequel 2 FAST 2 FURIOUS!

Try to avoid whiplash on this one. Check it out!

Check out John Singleton being interviewed on Charlie Rose in 1995.

Following the failure of NEW FIST OF FURY to launch the career of Jackie Chan, producer Lo Wei took another swing with the Chen Chi-Hwa-directed SHAOLIN WOODEN MEN from 1976. Featuring a story of revenge and intrigue, as well as the titular hallway of chain-operated wooden men, the film – thankfully – strays away from trying to recreate Bruce Lee’s persona and we get something closer to the Jackie Chan roles that would launch him to stardom. Closer… but not quite there. Check it out!

On this episode of FORGOTTEN GEMS? we’re looking at 1988 Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner HEAT AND SUNLIGHT from director/actor Rob Nilsson! It’s a completely improvised drama about a former war photographer who now finds himself tangling with complicated feelings about his current relationship and BOY does it swing widely between visually and formally inventive and absolutely tedious. Also, there’s FRUITICIDE. Let’s check it out!

On HOW DO YOU DO, FELLOW KIDS? we look at the life and career of beloved oddball character actor Steve Buscemi, and on this episode we go all the way back to 1987 and Peter Ily Huemer’s neon-soaked noirish “thriller” KISS DADDY GOODNIGHT! Featuring Uma Thurman making her feature film debut, as well as forgotten Dillon sibling Paul Dillon, the movie is meandering, ugly and tedious, but manages to capture a uniquely grimy aesthetic at times. Also, STEVE BUSCEMI is in it! CHECK IT OUT!
