Episode 10 - 7- 13

October, our favorite month, arrives slick with pumpkiny amnion. Our first October show (of four) kicks off with a John Carpenter theme.

Review - Gravity: Alfonso Cuaron has a pretty good track record, I think. Often his stories can be schmaltzy, but his method of filmmaking usually comes to the fore and lingers far past your initial viewing. Gravity, ostensibly a space-thriller, is actually a meditation on loss and mortality in the form of a close-hewn, visually-striking narrative about simpler events. The metaphor gets a little out of hand in certain points, but by and large the was a thoughtful story with great effects.

We heard music from:

The Thing, 1982 - John Carpenter, Ennio Morricone
In the Mouth of Madness, 1994 - John Carpenter
The Fog, 1980 - John Carpenter
