For the first Paleo-Cinema of 2018 I look at the 1962 exploitation sleazefest that is Satan In High Heels starring Meg Myles and Grayson Hall, then we go to 1973 Sweden for the compulsively watchable but confronting revenge movie Thriller- A Cruel Picture a.k.a. They Call Her One Eye. Plus, there's feedback

Here it is. As agreed with the Patreon subscribers I watched and reviewed Star Wars - The Last Jedi as fairly as I possibly could. There's really nothing else to say except enjoy the holidays.

This time around I explain the funding changes with Podbean, then the interesting stuff. I look at a 1942 American portmanteau film, TALES OF MANHATTAN with an enormous cast of stars and a very interesting concept. From there, to celebrate the legalisation of Same Sex Marriage in this brown, unpleasant land, I look at the 1970 adaptation of Joe Orton's 1964 play, Entertaining Mr. Sloane starring Beryl Reid, Harry Andrews and Peter McEnerey.

For 214 it's crime movies. We go from 1967 southern US race tensions in In The Heat Of The Night starring Sidney Poitier and Rod Steiger to the moral ambiguity of Reagan Era LA in William Friedkin's To Live And Die In LA starring William Peterson and Willem Dafoe.

This time around it's musicals. Tansy Rayner Roberts and I go from the rootin' tootin' (not much rootin') western action of Calamity Jane (1953) with Doris Day, Howard Keel and Dick Wesson to the darker musical, Bob Fosse's Cabaret starring Liza Minnelli, Michael York and Joel Gray. It's a long one this time but we had a lot of fun with it.

This time around, it's pop culture chat with author, rock climber and cave clan emeritus expert Claire McKenna. We talk movies, politics, culture, television, Hollywood and social media in one long stream of semi-conscious. Lots of surprises but nothing dangerous, as Willie Wonka said.
