A young couple goes on a Midwest crime spree in Terrence Malick's hypnotically assured debut feature, based on the 1950s Starkweather-Fugate murders. Fancying himself a rebel like James Dean, twentysomething Kit (Martin Sheen) takes off with teen baton-twirler Holly (Sissy Spacek) after shooting her father (Warren Oates) when he tries to split the pair up. Once bounty hunters discover their riverside hiding place, Kit and Holly head toward Saskatchewan, leaving dead bodies in their wake.

Episode 143 - Raging Bull (1980)


Stinking Pause – the movie review podcast with Scott, who this week is joined by Antony, the host of the Glass Onion: On John Lennon podcast to chat about Scorcese, DeNiro, method acting and boxing.

It’s back to 1980 for a look at Raging Bull starring Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci, directed by Martin Scorcese.

When Jake LaMotta steps into a boxing ring and obliterates his opponent, he's a prizefighter. But when he treats his family and friends the same way, he's a ticking time bomb, ready to go off at any moment. Though LaMotta wants his family's love, something always seems to come between them. Perhaps it's his violent bouts of paranoia and jealousy. This kind of rage helped make him a champ, but in real life, he winds up in the ring alone.

“If you win, you win. If you lose, you still win.”

Episode 142 - Close Encounters Of The Third Kind (1977)


Stinking Pause – the movie review podcast with Scott, who this week is joined by Paul to chat about Steven Spielberg, Richard Dreyfus and UFOs

It’s back to 1977 for a look at Close Encounters Of The Third Kind starring Richard Dreyfus, Teri Garr, Francois Truffaut and Bob Balaban

Steven Spielberg followed Jaws (1975), his first major box-office success, with this epic science fiction adventure about a disparate group of people who attempt to contact alien intelligence. Roy Neary (Richard Dreyfuss) is an electrical lineman who, while sent out on emergency repairs, witnesses an unidentified flying object, and even has a "sunburn" from its bright lights to prove it. Neary's wife and children are at first skeptical, then concerned, and eventually fearful, as Roy refuses to accept a "logical" explanation for what he saw and is prepared to give up his job, his home, and his family to pursue the "truth" about UFOs. Neary's obsession eventually puts him in contact with others who've had close encounters with alien spacecraft, including Jillian (Melinda Dillon), a single mother whose son disappeared during her UFO experience, and Claude Lacombe (celebrated French filmmaker François Truffaut), a French researcher who believes that we can use a musical language to communicate with alien visitors. Lacombe's theory is put to the test when a band of government researchers and underground UFO enthusiasts (including Neary) join for an exchange with alien visitors near Devil's Tower, Wyoming.

“Yeah, I'm fine! And the only gas around here is from you guys farting around!”
