If you're unfamiliar with Korean cinema or saw Parasite and want to see more, this isn't a bad place to...

More Episodes

This week on the show Kyle and Burnside are joined by long time friend of the show John Ungaro. It's been forever since John has been on the show and we have plenty to talk about. He got there early and so we had him sit in on the intro so this episode just goes straight through. We talk about the films of indie film icon Jim Jarmusch. Kyle and John both cite Jarmusch as a big influence on their creative work and their teenage interest in independent cinema. They explore the themes and motifs that run through his movies. They also talk about how New York City looks on film. They also get real rambley for a while. If you enjoy tangent episodes, we've got plenty for you this ep. They also speculate about his latest film The Dead Don't Die and how wild it is that thirty years into a career, Jarmusch is making a commercially released zombie movie. I don't think any of us saw that coming. Enjoy!

Kyle – The Violet Wanderers (podcast) and Protoplanets (band)

 

John – The Maniac Cop Trilogy (movies) and Phantasm (movie) and Swamp Thing (show)
