The Wages of Cinema
About This Show
A podcast that is practically all about MOVIES! Cinema, films, celluloid, digital, whatever you want to call it. Jack and Andrew are the hosts, and we talk about new movies, classics, cult work, things we've seen and have never seen, special segments about directors and styles and trends, and 'Required Reading' which is about movie books. And the "Local Vocal" series gives you in-depth interviews with NYC/NJ based filmmakers, actors, artists and musicians.

Episode 92.2: What the Devil is That #7: CATCH MY SOUL (1974)
So, what's on the menu for the month of July (posting a little late, yes, we know, sorry)? How's about a.... rock N roll musical with Christian AND hippie/flower-power overtones (riding off the coat-tails of Jesus Christ Superstar) that stars Richie Havens as... Othello(!?!) What? How have we not heard of this before? And why is it's aka "Santa Fe Satan"?
Tune in, drop out, and get something groovy with the FREEDOM of checking out this episode of this boldly going where few have cinematically gone before; WHAT THE DEVIL IS THAT? (This time it's a little more interesting a concept too).
Richie Havens: "FREEDOM" from Woodstock (1969)
Rated 5 out of
The hosts of the Wages of Cinema have a great rapport with one another, and this comes through as they talk about new and classic movies. There's witty banter, serious analysis, and personal discussions on which films have meant the most to them - all while talking about the new movies they've seen in the past week (the two-minute movie mile has a wide variety, so if one movie doesn't grab you the next might), the 'List' segments (more in-depth stuff there), and then they have a main subject. My favorite part is their 'Required Reading', which they don't do all the time but is usually a solid bet for recommendations of quality movie books.
They're not Siskel & Ebert, but then who is?
