On this episode of ERIC ROBERTS IS THE MAN we’re going all in on Damien Chazelle’s overstuffed ode to the silent era BABYLON, which stars Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Diego Calva, Tobey Maguire and – of course – the man himself Eric Roberts! Filled with spewing bodily fluids, orgies, murder, rat eating and snake wrestling, it’s both an ode to the end of a cinematic era and a commentary on the current changing face of movie-going. Fun, right? I guess we’ll see! We also chat about drunk driving, guns, Michael Madsen, Guy Ritchie knock-offs and SO MUCH MORE. Check it out!

Check out the full Wild in the Streets archive right here
On this episode of WILD IN THE STREETS we’re going long with the late Ruggero Deodato’s one and only eurocrime film, the absolutely bizarre buddy-cop action classic LIVE LIKE A COP, DIE LIKE A MAN. Featuring plenty of homoeroticism, quarry target practice, straight up murder and EXPLOSIONS, it takes the template set by earlier European action films and goes completely overboard, with two lead characters who flaunt conventions (and legality) while mowing down anyone who gets in their way – sometimes before they even commit a crime. CHECK IT OUT!
