Cinema Eclectica 156 – Existentialism and Pizza, Dude

Cinema Eclectica 156 – Existentialism and Pizza, Dude

This week we’re covering films that, in one way or another, deliver on what their titles promise.

“A Fistful of Dollars” really was made for about as much money as its name suggests, while “Neon Bull” really does feature a neon bull, and “The Passenger” really is an adaptation of the classic Iggy Pop song.

OK, we may have made that last one up, but after Sergio Leone’s classic Western our Off the Shelf section goes seriously arthouse. Rob investigates Indicator’s blu-ray of Michelangelo Antonioni’s enigmatic masterpiece “The Passenger” (starring Jack Nicholson), and Graham saddles up for a rodeo as Second Run release “Neon Bull” for the first time ever in the UK.

We’re taking a week’s break after this, and when we come back? Get ready, because it’s war!

Co-founder of The Geek Show Podcast Network. Chief Editor and Executive Producer of, and tangentially overburdened host/co-presenter of several shows on the network. When I'm not engaged in production, journalistic shenanigans or the quagmire that is media criticism I watch movies, interesting TV shows and anime, I also enjoy the arts (you know, classical music and stuff), write many, many things, play and collect a lot of video games, read lots of manga, comics and books, and generally enjoy wallowing in the mass of entertainment media like a hippo in mud. I can also cook.
