MoP: 013-Isle of Dogs
Wes Anderson's stunningly beautiful Isle of Dogs could be called "Lost in Translation" with dogs. A film about how language is both a barrier and a facilitator of understanding between living beings. Also, there is some mention of vomit and poop towards the end of the episode.
MoP: 012-The Heuristics Of Horror
In this episode of MoP, we look beyond the horror canon and unearth obscure, international and arty horror films that make us pee our pants (Although Jay pees his pants on every episode. I have urged him to see a urologist but he's stuck in his ways). Some of the horror gems discussed in this episode: two Larry Cohen films, It's Alive and God Told Me To, Brian DePalma's Sisters, Cure directed by Kiyoshi Kurosawa, House byNobuhiko Ôbayashi and more. Then, we delve deep into our chosen films...
MoP: 011- A Formidable Woman: The Films of Elaine May
“Elaine was formidable…. one of the most intelligent, beautiful and witty women I had ever met. I hoped I would never see her again.” —Richard Burton One of the most innovative artists to emerge out of the Beat era, Elaine May has been an object of fascination and curiosity for her entire strange, volatile career. On this episode of MoP, we take a deeper look at the life and work of the great Elaine May who only made 4 feature films A New Leaf, The Heartbreak Kid, Mickey & Nickey and the...
Mutiny Of Preverts - Episode 010 - Black Panther And New Black Cinema
Azed, Jay and guest host and filmmaker Omar Majeed get together to discuss, and solve, one of the most complex issues of our time - laurel or yanny? The answer is laurel, obviously. They also find time to discuss the blockbuster hit Black Panther and a few other seminal films made by black filmmakers including Get Out and Moonlight. If those topics interest you and you want to find out which ethnic group Jay is most racist against listen in to find out.
You Were Never Really Here
In this episode of MoP, Azed and Jay talk about Lynne Ramsay's masterful You Were Never Really Here, starring Joaquin Phoenix in what has to be one of the best performances of the year. Azed talks about the Netflix doc, Wild Wild Country and shocks Jay when he announces that he is joining the Rajneeshes for the free sex. Yup.
MoP: 008- Good Time
In this episode of MoP, we take a journey with hunky Robert Pattinson in his breakout role in the Safdie Brothers' dark thriller Good Time.
MoP Ep: 007 - The Trumpocracy
In episode 007 Azed and Jay discuss four films that explore the rise of cult of personality figures in a similar vein as The Most Resplendent Orange One, Donald Trump. The films discussed are Elmer Gantry, Network, A Face in the Crowd and Nightmare Alley. Along the way Azed comes to realize that Jay is someone who is very highly educated, and knows words. He has the best words.
MoP: Ep. 005 The Shape Of Water
In this episode of MoP, we trash talk the Oscars for reliably virtue signalling and picking crap movies as "best" picture. Then we dive deep into this year's Oscar winner, Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water. A film that situates it's main character in the pre-Oedipal frame...or maybe she's just a fish out of water?
MoP: Ep: 004 Yasujiro Ozu and kogonada's Columbus
Azed and Jay get into the "floating weeds" (Ozu reference)with the excellent directorial debut of kogonada and his Ozu inspired film, Columbus.
MoP Ep.003 The Square
In this episode Azed and Jay discuss Ruben Ostlund's Palme D'Or winner The Square. Also discussed in this episode: The Monkees, Streetcar Named Desire and vomit.
MoP EP 002 The Post
Each episode Toronto filmmakers Azed Majeed and Jay Wolting discuss everything from present day blockbusters to underseen classics with a total disregard for all good taste and decorum. We also deny all claims that our Soundcloud page is powered by a small worker monkey named Benny Bananas. Nor did we steal said worker monkey from a septuagenarian organ grinder with severe fibrodysplasia (But even if we did, that bastard Giuseppe had it coming).
