High and Low (Brow) – Episode 2.9 – Dopplegangers
And we’re back! As promised James and I had a much quicker turn around for the latest episode of the High and Low (Brow) podcast, which means more work for us and hopefully less enjoyment for you. Wait, what?
For this episode we watched a pair of films that fell under the theme of Dopplegangers, meaning that one of the actors/actresses in the movie played a duel role. Thus, to fill these needed slots we found the 1973 Brian de Palma helmed Sisters (with Margot Kidder tackling the duel role), and the 90’s neo-noir Man with a Gun (in which Jennifer Tilly plays twin sisters), directed by someone I don’t know and have no intention of Googling. Will James and I take part in yet another episode of a mutual admiration society, or will we finally, finally, engage in a little controversy?
It should be noted that the theme was supplied to us by one of our loyal listeners (He Who Must Not Be Named), which is a great segue into stating that 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!
