High and Low (Brow) – Episode 2.11 – Exploiting Exploitation
On this, the latest episode of the High and Low (Brow) podcast we visit Exploitation films, specifically the 1977 sexploitation film Death Game, and the French pseudo-exploitation film The Escapees, from famed French horror director Jean Rollin. Besides discussing the erotic qualities of one Sondra Locke we touch base on my recent trip to New York to see Jay Cheel’s latest magnum opus and James’ feelings on cell phones, Barnabus Collins and the importance of handwritten communication. Needless to say we cover a lot of ground. Oh yeah, and we reveal just what films we will be watching for the next episode during the selection segment.
Once again I’ve went with posting the podcast in m4a, and I’ve done a bit more work with adding show notes to it as well as links to purchase the films we review. So for those of you with iPhones and iPads you should let me know if these new additions are even worth the trouble.
If you have any recommendations for films we could watch for the podcast, or want to suggest a potential theme for us to use, or simply want to tell James how awesome he is, feel free to email us and tell us your ideas. If you enjoy the show make sure to subscribe through iTunes or our RSS feed so you can catch every new episode. Also, please friend James on Facebook. Because it will frighten and confuse him. And while you’re there be sure to join our relatively new Facebook group devoted to Where the Long Tail Ends.
One more thing, if you enjoy the show feel free to donate to it through PayPal in either a single installment or as a recurring donor. We’d love to upgrade some of our equipment and anything you donate will go directly towards us getting some decent mics and perhaps even pop screens that aren’t made out of cotton balls.
As always, thanks for listening!
