Another Kind of Distance: A Time Travel Podcast

Film >

Elise Moore and David Fiore aspire to cover every time travel film ever made (in this continuum, at least). Together, we'll dive deeply and dialogically into this eternally compelling genre. Our discussions will draw from philosophy, psychology, anthropology, history, narratology, and aesthetic theory. We'll even try to wrap our minds around the physics, when the films demand it. It's an ode to paramours and paradox by two people who really give a flux. Please let us know what you think of our approach - and chime in with your own impressions. We're all living in the same time period - we ought to take advantage of that, don't you think?

Red Time For Bonzo - Episode 5A: Sergeant Murphy (1938)

8/18/2018

Episode 5A: Sergeant Murphy (1938) Bryan Foy's B-movie unit at Warner Brothers churned out some of the best bottom-of-the-bill features of the late 1930s, but B. Reeves Eason's "Horseratio Alger" tale Sergeant Murphy is kind of a nag. Nevertheless, this seldom seen army/racing/equine buddy film is a crucial item in the Gipper's filmography, as it demonstrates the studio's continuing commitment to the coltish actor as a leading player (it's his second starring vehicle, following closely...

**Subscribe/rate/download RED TIME FOR BONZO via the show's dedicated feed, here. ** Our second Reagan/Dwan collaboration is far inferior to Tennessee's Partner, despite some fine directorial touches and characteristically brilliant open air cinematography from John Alton, but it does furnish your hosts with a textbook example of colonialist hermeneutics in action. On the surface, Cattle Queen of Montana may come across as a "progressive" film, with its anti-bigotry rhetoric and...

Talk To the Hand: A Grant Morrison Filth podcast - issue #13 and series overview (more like a series sidelonggazeview)

8/10/2018
More
In our final episode on The Filth, we cover issue #13 and then circle back in an effort to gain a tentative foothold on Morrison's masterful meta-matter-mound. Among the topics of discussion: man and cat tales, the political valences and silences of the text, and a lengthy, semi-lucid interrogation of the story's deployment of gendered concepts. We'd like to thank John Pistelli, David Allison, Kelly Kanayama, and Sean Dillon for furnishing us with some excellent essays to bask our brains...

Red Time For Bonzo - Episode 4A - Swing Your Lady (1938)

8/4/2018
More
When proletarian Warner Brothers hightails it to the Ozarks, things can only go two ways: toward tragedy or rough mockery. Swing Your Lady offers a touch of the former (thanks primarily to genuine chemistry between unlikely screen lovers Louise Fazenda and Nat Pendleton), and a whole mess of the latter. There's not much Gipper in this one, but what there is, is choice - by now he's got his sharpie media character persona so well honed that he runs rings around wrestling promoters Humphrey...

Red Time For Bonzo: Episode 3B - Tennessee's Partner (1955)

7/24/2018
More
The RED TIME FOR BONZO gang sifts an unexpected nugget out of the silt of Reagan's waning film career - although, in retrospect, no one should ever count an Allan Dwan film out before it's watched (particularly when Dwan is working with cinematographer John Alton and a crackerjack fifties cast that includes John Payne, Rhonda Fleming, Coleen Gray, and Chubby Johnson). The Gipper turns in tremendous work here, too, fusing his character's seemingly incongruous rigidity, resourcefulness and...

Ronald Reagan in a Busby Berkeley extravaganza!!?? Well, sort of... The Gipper graduates from Warners' B-squad to the big time, but only to the tune of a 30 second two-shot with the great Dick Powell (67% of our hosts disagree with that description of Dick). And it's not exactly Berkeley's finest effort, either. Nothing proto-psychedelic here. Unless Mabel Todd's dotty dialogue disorients you. And - to quote Mabel - we had some interesting talks!
