January 22, 2022

This week the Movie Morlock invites film enthusiast, and Instragrammer, Richard Stracke to discuss one of the most important filmmakers of all time, Alfred Hitchcock. But while Hitchcock enjoys a stellar reputation to this day, there is no denying the fact that his last several offerings weren't up to the same level as his most known works.

From Marnie (1964) to Family Plot (1976), the Morlock and Stracke pick apart the final five from the man with the famous profile. Bust our your rear-screen projectors, things are about to get real.

The Trial of Licorice Pizza

The Trial of Licorice Pizza

January 9, 2022

Licorice Pizza - Fun-loving, 1970's set coming-of-age romantic comedy, or dark look at an older woman's inappropriate relationship with a 15 year old boy set against the backdrop of gropey film producers and racist restaurant owners? 

Who knew Paul Thomas Anderson's trip down nostalgia lane was going to be so controversial? James Kent, The Movie Morlock, and his frequent cohort, Shannon tackle the controversies with two different takes on the movie. 

For the Morlock, this discussion was definitely a highlight, because it is a conversation that dives beneath the surface level of a movie that sometimes gets relegated to nothing more than social media scuttle, and certain films deserve a deeper dive.

 

Also on this episode a brief discussion of The Lost Daughter and Power of the Dog.

 

West Side Story, House of Gucci, and Inherent Vice

West Side Story, House of Gucci, and Inherent Vice

December 21, 2021

Just in time for the holidays the Morlock is back with three films he checked out in the theater. First up is Lady Gaga in House of Gucci. Is Ridley Scott back with his new movie, or is it more of his style-less fare? Next up is Steven Spielberg's semi-reimagining of the musical classic, West Side Story. It's not doing well in theaters, but that doesn't mean the Morlock wasn't impressed. And finally the Movie Morlock took in a rare 70mm screening of Paul Thomas Anderson's, Inherent Vice. Seeing a 70mm print of this particular film was a long goal of the Morlock's and he's excited to tell you all about it.
