Death by DVD takes a road trip this week straight into the heart of Functional America or as we call it Canada. We stalk the streets of Toronto and discuss the works of visionary director/writer/(and yes unfortunately) sometimes actor David Cronenberg. Cronenberg has his own vision as a film maker that has translated into some of the most mind bending and impressive films to date. We get under the skin deep and find out what makes the Cronenberg parasite tick.
A miniature army of handicapped crusaders. An evil bed with a soul of a demon who on a whim became a breeze. A terrorist filmmaker destroying cinema on reel at a time. A film that almost destroyed its makers. And a film whose makers want to destroy the world...What do these things have in common?...Wait I forgot to mention the magician taking on an international vampire drug cartel. How could i forget that one? Anyway, what to all these things have in common? Well...yes all of those things happened to Klaus Kinski and Werner Herzog in April of 1971, but I was more referring to the fact that all of these movies are Bat Shit Insane. Its Bat Shit Insane Movies on this weeks Death by DVD. We go through the gaunt lent of wackitude with a collection of movies that are sure to turn your brains into tapioca pupping. And please dont forget to bring the snub nose in case Klaus gets too close to that llama.
I dont even use my brain anymore, theres nothing left in it. Can you do a whole show based on a Black Flag song? Well, hell yeah you can. For the first show of our 4th season we take a major 180 degree turn and do something out of character. We are gonna be full of useful information and a cherry attitude...no, no, no. Instead of cleaning up our act, were doing a whole show about TV. As many shows as we can cram into this puppy. And i mean literally, we will be cramming Seinfeld into a puppy.
