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!

On this episode of FORGOTTEN GEMS? we’re looking at the winner of the 1978 Cannes Film Festival Jury Prize, Marco Ferreri’s BYE BYE MONKEY (aka CIAO MASCHIO) starring Gerard Depardieu! You might think a film about a grown (french) man adopting a baby chimp after finding it nestled in a giant animatronic King Kong would be loads of fun, but BOY is it not! It’s cynical, often irritating and very unpleasant, so let’s talk about it!
