This week, returning guest Theo (whose film review webseries Twin Cinema will be coming soon to the Alcohollywood Youtube Channel!) joins us to disassemble the cinematic mind-screw that is Shinya Tsukamoto’s Tetsuo the Iron Man! Somewhere between the surrealism of Lynch and the body horror of Cronenberg, Tetsuo follows a terrified salaryman as his body is slowly supplanted with strange metal growths. We chat about the film’s striking 16mm photography, the surrealist plot, and drill-does, while offering you our custom cocktail and drinking rules. Check it out!
Patrick O’Rourke of the Peaches and Hot Sauce podcast network joins Clint Jared and to talk about the independent timeline-jumping thriller Run Lola Run! The breakout film of director Tom Tykwer (Cloud Atlas), the film features a twenty-minute ticking-clock scenario in which Lola (Franka Potente) has to wrangle 100,000 marks to save the life of her boyfriend. Whenever she fails, she just says ‘No!’ and starts again, creating a whole new set of circumstances she has to overcome. The result is frenetic and fun, and we dig into it with our custom cocktail and drinking game!
