A newly struck 35mm print Francis Ford Coppola’s masterpiece The Conversation screened at the fabulous Nuart in West Los Angeles this past week, and it looks and sounds as great as you can imagine. David Shire’s score is one of my all-time favorites. Then there’s Bill Butler’s cinematography. Then you have Gene Hackman, Harrison Ford, Cindy Williams, Allen Garfield, Teri Garr, and more in the cast. Not to mention Coppola was on fire in this period of his career.
Movies and music your (husbands and) wives despise. We cover what we like: Gore, grindcore, Euro crime, horror, giallo, spaghetti westerns, metal, Blaxploitation, hardcore punk, cheerleaders, noise, samurai, improv, women in prison, slasher, arthouse, 1970s and 1980s teen comedies, and all points in between and beyond. If you're looking for dry academic treatises you are in the wrong place. Lowbrow is how.
