The Shooting - Ep08

1/10/2019

Warren Oates is one the great screen actors of all time. He's easily as good as Brando, De Niro or Daniel Day Lewis. In this episode of Film Detour he leads a disparate party through the Utah Desert. Captured spectacularly by cinematographer Gregory Sandor, masterfully directed by Monte Hellman, co-starring the nastiest Jack Nicholson this side of the Pecos, an equally surly Millie Perkins (and we thought she was so nice) and the very quirky Will Hutchins. So join us for Part II of director...

Straight Time - Ep07

Take Dustin Hoffman in his 1970's prime, mix him with some nitro glycerin (stir gently) and you've got Max Dembo, in the classic crime drama Straight Time. Brilliantly directed by Ulu Grosbard, this movie set the gold standard for all heist movies to follow. In it Hoffman delivers his most explosive performance ever as an ex-con trying to go straight. It also stars the great Harry Dean Stanton at his naturalistic best. And if that's not enough it includes, a very young Gary Busey, a very...

Ride in the Whirlwind - Ep06

12/2/2018
More
Ride In The Whirlwind Monte Hellman is the great unsung hero of filmmaking in the 1970's. A highly skilled writer, director, editor and photographer, a true Renaissance man. He created beautifully unconventional films in his unique and uncompromising style. In this two part series we will focus on two "revisionist" Westerns he made with Jack Nicholson (RIDE IN THE WHIRLWIND & THE SHOOTING), that also star the legendary Warren Oates & Harry Dean Stanton and the beautiful & talented Millie...

Zardoz - Ep05

Here's an idea. Take James Bond (Sean Connery fresh out of his 007 tux), strip him down to almost naked, give him really long hair tied up in a braid, a sorta Village People handlebar mustache, red bandoliers crisscrossing his bare, hairy chest, a red jockstrap kinda thing to cover his privates, thigh high leather (Jane Fonda as Barbarella type) boots and have him running around like that for an entire movie. Preposterous you say? It might be if it wasn't written & directed by master...

The Long Goodbye - Ep04

11/5/2018
More
How many hard boiled detectives do you know who'd go out at three o'clock in the morning to buy their kitty its favorite brand of cat food? Only one. Philip Marlowe, played oh so languidly by Elliot Gould, in The Long Goodbye. Expect the unexpected when veteran director Robert Altman brings Raymond Chandler's classic 1940's detective into the modern day (well, 1973 anyway). With brilliant performances by Sterling Hayden, Mark Rydell, & and (**spoiler alert**) a young Arnold Schwarzenegger...

The French Connection II: Yes, that's right two. Popeye Doyle travels to Paris to find "Frog One" and he'll stop at nothing this time to nail him for good.
