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.

Our look at the filmography of the great John Singleton continues with two of his mid-period films, starting with the often-brutal historical drama ROSEWOOD from 1997, followed by the coming-of-age comedy-drama BABY BOY from 2001. Also, we had already recorded this and Liam deleted it. HEAR THE WEARINESS IN OUR VOICES. Enjoy!

While Scene of the Crime was nominated for the Palme d’Or at Cannes it’s fallen into relative obscurity in the decades since, despite starring Catherine Deneuve and being directed by the legendary André Téchiné (and co-written by Olivier Assayas!). On this episode of FORGOTTEN GEMS our hosts try to work out why films are sometimes forgotten, and whether SCENE OF THE CRIME is worthy of rediscovery. Let’s check it out!
