High and Low (Brow) – Series 4 Episode 1 – Future Strange
And we’re back! In what might be our quickest turn around ever (not really, but just let us have this one) we are back with our series opening show of High and Low (Brow). This show’s theme, Future Strange, was submitted by a listener and it certainly lived up to its title as these were two of the oddest films we have encountered to date.
First up for us is the rare genre film from the great Robert Altman, Quintet. This film, which takes place after a new Ice Age has wiped out most of humanity, and those people that do survive are certainly lacking their own forms of humanity. Next up is the British comedy-thriller-science fiction-fantasy-glam-mod-mystery film The Final Programme, which is an adaption of the Michael Moorcock novel of the same name. This film is a bit difficult to describe and sum up in a few words, but make no mistake, it is a movie. That is something both James and I can agree on.
Following that we bring you yet another selection show, this time our theme will reflect the upcoming Flyway Film Festival, as both James and I will be in attendance. We’re hoping to record down there once again, which will mark our third year of doing so. Hopefully, we will have a number of guest stars as well to join in on the fun and festivities. And maybe even High and Low (Brow) as well.
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, Letterboxd and his second attempt at Twitter. 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!
