On the return (for the final time?) of FORGOTTEN GEMS? we’re watching Denis Levant and Mireille Perrier in Leos Carax’s feature debut BOY MEETS GIRL from 1984. Equal parts dark comedy, and tragic (sometimes surreal) romance, the film brings two recently jilted lovers together (eventually) despite the omnipresent distractions of tap dancing, music, pinball, and just trying to exist in your early 20s. It’s stirring, odd, and captivating, but did we understand any of it? Listen and find out!

Check out our Wild in the Streets archive right here.

We’re getting WILD IN THE STREETS with Charles Bronson and Telly Savalas in the New Orleans-set Eurocrime classic VIOLENT CITY from 1970. The plot involves Bronson’s retired assassin Jeff Heston getting revenge on those who left him for dead, including the woman he loves (played, naturally, by Jill Ireland). Sergio Sollima’s VIOLENT CITY features some dynamite action sequences, some terrific performances and some disturbing misogyny that left us – wait for it – conflicted. It also features a wonderful soundtrack from Ennio Morricone, that the movie takes great advantage of. CHECK IT OUT!

Paul Bartel POPS THE CLUTCH and brings the world the gory sci-fi satire DEATH RACE 2000 in 1975, a box office smash that remains a popular (and influential) exploitation film and a jewel in Roger Corman’s New World Pictures catalogue. On this episode of BARTEL ME SOMETHING GOOD we look at how the film came to be, the difficulties in filming (including David Carradine nearly being replaced by Lee Majors!), and the enduring legacy of the film. FRANKENSTEIN SCORES!

We’re back on our Steve Buscemi bullcrap with IN THE SOUP director Alexandre Rockwell reuniting with some of the cast of the film (including Buscemi, Seymour Cassel and Carol Kane) to make the neo-noir comedy PETE SMALLS IS DEAD, which stars Peter Dinklage as an ex-screenwriter and a tremendous Mark Boone Junior as his impossibly slovenly friend. The pair head to LA to get some cash for Dinklage’s stolen screenplay, while paying tribute to their recently deceased friend Pete Smalls (Tim Roth). It’s overstuffed, and needlessly confusing, but has a parade of familiar faces that keeps things lively. We also chat about private detectives, Steve Buscemi’s biggest box office hits and MORE. Check it out!
