00:00 - 10:07 - INTROS. This week on TRAVIS BICKLE ON THE RIVIERA, a movie podcast about movies and movies, Tucker read David Denby's Do The Movies Have A Future?, and we talk about Denby, his other book Snark, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Judd Apatow, and comic book movies. Sean tried to read The Evil Dead Companion by Bill Warren. But couldn't. Which leads to...
10:08 - 16:28 - Sean watched the Evil Dead remake (2013), directed by Fede Alvarez, starring the five available people nearest to the casting director at the time they went to shoot the movie. In this section we talk about how you can't copy someone else's fetishes.
16:29 - 23:15 - Tucker has been marathoning, and finished, the entire series of The Shield.
Also in this section we talk about Alan Sepinwall's The Revolution Was Televised, and Shawn Ryan's other shows, specifically Terriers.
23:16 - 29:11 - Tucker has also been catching up on Delocated, which Sean loves like crazy. In this section we talk about Todd Barry's twitter and PFFFR! tv shows.
29:12 - 38:56 - HOMEWORK - Tucker watched Cul De Sac (1966), directed by Roman Polanski, starring Francoise Dorleac, Donald Pleasance, Lionel Stander, and Jack Magowran. In this section we talk about Beckett, Polanski's other films, and his attempt to adapt Waiting For Godot, and Straw Dogs. We also talk about the Parker adaptations, including Slayground and The Split. Rare corrections - when Sean says "Brecht" he means "Beckett", and when Tucker says "The Apartment" he means "The Tenant".
38:57 - 46:36 - HOMEWORK (sorta) Sean watched The Small Back Room (1949), directed by Powell and Pressburger/ the Archers, starring David Farrar, Kathleen Byron, and Michael Gough. In this section we also talk The Hurt Locker, The Spy In Black, Fritz Lang, and then we detour in a great sidebar about how Tucker fucking loves Carl Theodore Dreyer.
46:37 - 55:44 - Sean has been watching every single Brian De Palma movie (and slapping screencaps on tumblr because going outside is for suckers), because of reasons, he's about halfway done with it and we kind of briefly talk about it without going full geek. Don't worry, this will probably happen the next time. Also in this section we talk about Die Hard 4, Ghost Protocol, Kirk Douglas, Altman's Buffalo Bill and the Indians, the 6 hour cut of All the Pretty Horses, and how every movie would be better with Dune voiceovers.
Our homework movies this week are Mean Streets and Moonraker, and our outro music is Norma Jean's "Sorcerer".
