Movie Meltdown - Episode 496

This week we’re coming to you “live” from Harry Dean Stanton Fest - featuring our discussion with director Alex Cox! Listen as we discuss his early movie memories as well as stories of creating Repo Man, Sid and Nancy, Straight to Hell, hosting Moviedrome and the glory days of the L.A. punk scene.  

And as we continue searching for the best burrito in America, we also address… Cisco Pike, Mysterio, Echo In The Canyon, Crawl, The Mattei Affair, Samuel L. Jackson, a dinosaur, nuclear war, an 18 year old girl on a beach, savage cowboys, Brian Wilson, the public library, the nature of making a drama, endless explaining what's going on - in Spanish, a Charles Bronson movie, A Strange Enemy, were available in the month of August of that year, I've mastered the one hand capture, they're horrible... they're an appalling pair, streaming services, Donnie Darko, pin-cushioned with arrows, people said the 70’s weren’t good - don’t believe ‘em… the 70’s were the best, sexy Kris Kristofferson, law undergrad, Sy Richardson, the BBC had all these films on their license, Mexican television, Welcome to Sweden, Edgar Wright, Popeye, a good time to be in prison, Timerider, junkie rock stars, Brian Wilson, being blacklisted, Child's Play, a high school kid, the script was kind of a potpourri, Aubrey Plaza, the whole room looked like a packet of Gitanes, Michael Nesmith, a cult movie, black and white and foreign language films, video stores everywhere, merely by putting an artistic frame around it, Spider-Man: Far from Home, the director’s cut, Liquid Paper, Turner Classic Movies and sir… please stop touching the movies. 

“...I had to make money, in order to subsidize my hobby of being a filmmaker.”
