CINEPUNX Episode 72: “Oh, My, Miike!” THE HAPPINESS OF THE KATAKURIS and BLADE OF THE IMMORTAL
HEY HEY CINEMA-PUNKERS, AND WELCOME TO A SCATOLOGICALLY GOOD EPISODE OF CINEPUNX!!
On this, our most recent effort after an all too long hiatus, we jump in to a realm of film we are only slightly familiar with, the works of Japanese director Takashi Miike. We focus this episode of two films, one older and one new, THE HAPPINESS OF THE KATAKURIS and BLADE OF THE IMMORTAL. More importantly, Josh and I are finally reunited, and most of the episode is about our friend love for each other, so if you you don’t dig on that, back out now.
We being with our usual gimmicks, after a quick detour discussing how busy we have been and some of the fun and not fun stuff that has taken up our time. I had a bunch of cool stuff happen at Cinepocalypse Fest including a live taping of ERIC ROBERTS IS THE FUCKING MAN featuring “the man” himself, Eric Fucking Roberts!! Shit was cool. On the down side, I need a new job. If you got one hit me up. Josh has been busy as well, not least of which with the new record from his band CROSSED KEYS !!! Do us both a favor, and post that bandcamp link all over the internets. We get into our usual WACK AND ON TRACK jawn, and then take a break followed by a rather less than knowledgeable discussion of Takashi Miike. Oh, but RIGHT BEFORE that we get into a rather long, and possible boring, talk around the band HOT WATER MUSIC. Skip like ten minutes after the break to miss that.
These were maybe two rather RANDOM films to discuss, but we wanted to do one new and one old, and I had never seen either so hence my choice. I was totally stoked on this discussion though, and I hope you enjoy hearing it as much as we enjoyed doing it.
