Episode 62: Black Swan, Red Shoes

Tragic Ballerinas!

This week, in Faults in the Vaults, we strap on some ballet slippers and lose a grip on sanity with a pair of dance-centric dramas. We call in an understudy on Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan (2010) in order to sing the praises and educate the masses on what is arguably the greatest Technicolor film ever made, Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's The Red Shoes (1948)!

We defend the honor and abilities of the uber-dreamy Ryan Gosling in The Mailbag! Josh digs up a great copy of the hilarious, but little seen, Lookwell!, the unsold pilot co-created by Robert Smigel and Conan O'Brien, starring the late Adam West for This Week in Torrents.

Mitch guides us around the crime-ridden ghetto of France to talk about La Haine (1995) in another edition of Where in the World Cinema? The Soapbox Rant wonders what happened to the multi-talented movie stars of old and when our collective expectations were lowered.

Also in this episode, drunken nights at Tonga Hut, more Real McKenzies music videos, BabbleVision, and even more great products from the good people at Raleigh Soapery!
