Still Watching the Skies: 2018 Christmas Special “Secret Santa IV”
Robert, Nat, and Cody are joined by returning guests Angela Fabbrini and Jim Laczkowski of Voices & Visions as we throw our fourth annual Secret Santa party. Who gave what to whom is the mystery of the episode as we take turns discussing five movies especially chosen for their recipients by their secret Santas.
We took a dark turn this year, but hopefully an interesting one. We lead off with THE DEVIL AND DANIEL WEBSTER, go further down the dark rabbit hole with John Frankenheimer’s SECONDS, take a reprieve with Peter Bodganovich’s WHAT’S UP DOC, dive right back into nihilism with Arthur Penn’s NIGHT MOVES, and finish up with some good old fashioned high octane violence courtesy of THE RAID.
We have plenty to discuss. Particularly in regards to NIGHT MOVES where Cody did his Masters Thesis on seventies neo-noir. So we have you covered for a long trip.
We hope you enjoy this celebration of film. Give us a play or Download the episode. Also, feel free to let us know what you think by commenting below or Email Us at [email protected] as we appreciate feedback.
Next month, we turn our attention to 1978’s adaptation of Ira Levin’s novel THE BOYS FROM BRAZIL. We hope you’ll join us.
