Magnificent Octopuses

I’ve been hoping to book Michael Dowse for an episode of Someone Else’s Movie ever since I launched the podcast, and it finally came together on the press day for his new Viceland series, FUBAR: Age of Computer

I am very happy about this, particularly since he picked a great movie to talk about: Heaven’s Gate, Michael Cimino’s initially reviled, ultimately celebrated epic Western. Thirty-seven years after its disastrous, studio-killing release, we have enough distance to talk about it as a piece of cinema rather than a pop-culture punchline.

It’s a good conversation. Wanna hear it? Subscribe to the show on Apple PodcastsGoogle Play or Stitcher or download the episode directly from the web. That’s all I’ve ever asked of you.
