After a 23-year hiatus away from directing (and with an assist from the Jodorowsky’s Dune documentary) Alejandro Jodorowsky returned to filmmaking with the autobiographical fantasy (based on his own book) THE DANCE OF REALITY in 2013. On this episode of JodoWOWsky we break down all the latest Jodorowsky news (including Julia’s experience attending some recent screenings with Jodo himself!), take a look at the Adan Jodorowsky-directed short film THE VOICE THIEF (based on his father’s short story) and – of course – going deep on THE DANCE OF REALITY!

Hot diggity dog! On a returning PRAISING KANE we’re committed to giving you the best possible value for your ears, so not only are we going over the latest Carol Kane news, we’re also discussing both an episode of the beloved sitcom CHEERS (featuring Carol Kane as a woman who catches Sam’s eye before he discovers she was previously in a mental hospital), and we also go deep on the Barbara Mandrell-starring TV movie BURNING RAGE from 1984 featuring Tom Wopat, Eddie Albert, Bert Remsen and – of course – Carol Kane for some reason! The film has Mandrell trying to convince a small southern town to move away from their dangerous, combustible mines while she’s being wooed by Tom Wopat’s and being chased (and threatened) by money-obsessed psycho Eddie Albert! LET’S LISTEN!

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.

New year, new episode of FURTHER REEDING, a podcast all about the life and career of actor Oliver Reed! On this episode we’re joining Reed and all his seaside buddies as they take in (and take out) the tourist trade in 1964’s THE SYSTEM (also known by the confusingly titled THE GIRL-GETTERS in the US). Directed by regular Reed collaborator (and notorious scumbag) Michael Winner, it’s a fascinatingly layered drama with a star making performance from Reed in the lead. BUT IS IT ANY GOOD? Listen and find out!

On this episode of FURTHER REEDING, Oliver Reed and Amanda Donohoe have only gone and got themselves stranded on a desert island and have to survive, but – GET THIS – they did it on purpose in Nicolas Roeg’s CASTAWAY from 1986. Based on a bizarre true story, it involves a whole lot of nudity and Oliver Reed acting like a maniac so you know we had to talk about it. Sadly, it’s a bit hard to track down (unless you write the title and year of release into YouTube), so you’ll just have to listen to us describe it and try to use your imagination to picture all the nudity. ENJOY!

On this episode of GEORGE KENNEDY IS MY CO-PILOT our merry trio is diving into the fiery drama TICK, TICK, TICK from 1970 starring Jim Brown, Fredric March, Clifton James and – of course – George Kennedy! Brown stars as the newly elected Sheriff of a very, very racist southern county, while Kennedy is the now ex-Sheriff who is semi-committed to keeping him alive. Spoiler: it’s not easy! Before that we discuss another George Kennedy commercial (for California-based tech company TOTLCOM), and try our darndest to make it interesting (did we succeed? listen and find out!)

On this jam-packed episode of Praising Kane, our chronological look at the career of Carol Kane continues, starting with brief discussions about a mid-70s Dr. Pepper commercial, as well an early 80s adaptation of Irwin Shaw’s The Girls in Their Summer Dresses featuring both Carol Kane and Jeff Bridges! After the break we turn our attention to the surprisingly star-studded drama AN INVASION OF PRIVACY from 1983 featuring Valerie Harper, Richard Masur, Jerry Orbach, Jeff Daniels, Sarah Michelle Gellar (in her screen debut) and – of course – Carol Kane! Some darker subject matter, but a unique episode. Check it out!

Note that An Invasion of Privacy deals with sexual assault, and while our hosts have aspired to treat the material with the seriousness it deserves, there’s always the possibility that language used or situations described could be triggering. We have tried to give a similar warning in the episode proper, but if discussions on this topic are upsetting, this might be an episode to skip.

We continue our chronological look at the career of Carol Kane on PRAISING KANE with the surreal 1981 French drama THE GAMES OF COUNTESS DOLINGEN, partially based on the works of Unica Zürn (with a bit of Bram Stoker thrown in for good measure). A complex, twisting and often quite shocking film, it puzzled and intrigued our hosts who came away from it with two very different perspectives, and sparked a conversation about how much knowledge (or research) should be expected from an audience before watching a film. It’s more fun that that sounds! CHECK IT OUT!

The film can currently be viewed on archive.org right here.

Welcome to our least listened to episode of PRAISING KANE ever! On this episode, our chronological look at the career of the wonderful Carol Kane continues with 1979’s LA SABINA, a José Luis Borau film that is only partially available in English.. but we watched it anyway! It’s a drama filled with infidelity, regret, and a mysterious dragon lady that threatens to devour us all. FUN! But that’s not all! We decided to BEEF things up by also watching OUT OF OUR FATHER’S HOUSES, a filmed version of Eve Merriam’s play adapted from actual letters by women in the 19th century. I know you’re quaking with anticipation, so it’s time to listen right… now!
