I’ve been sitting on this week’s episode of Someone Else’s Movie for a while; there were some issues with the audio that took a long time to figure out, but the good news is I eventually found an approach that worked. You might hear the tiniest hint of a buzz in the background, but that should be the worst of it. Also it turns out a slight sense of things being just a little off is thematically appropriate to the film under discussion.
So this week, finally. enjoy Tenzin co-directors Michael LeBlanc and Josh Reichmann digging into the murk of Adrian Lyne’s metaphysical 1990 thriller Jacob’s Ladder, and find that it’s entangled with their debut feature in several intriguing ways. And I manage to come to terms with my general resentment of Lyne’s movie over the course of the conversation, so that’s nice too.
And then go check out Shiny Things, because boy have I been busy with that. Over the last few days I finally got through those celebratory Imprint boxed sets of Gene Hackman and Walter Hill, and there’s more to come — so subscribe already, jeez.
