Lee and Daniel have finally made it to the end of the podcast's extended series on crime films with a massive episode on Quentin Tarantino's 1997 adaptation of Elmore Leonard's crime novel "Rum Punch". That's right, time to talk some Pam Grier in "Jackie Brown"! Is it QT's best film? Is it the best modern era crime film? Is this Grier's best work? Is Spike Lee an ass for being critical of the liberal use of the dreaded "N" word? All of this and much more is discussed at length, including a longer-than-usual talk about what they've watched as of late. Forgive them, as it's been a while since they've recorded together, so there was a lot of catching up to do.

Featured Music: "Long Time Woman" by Pam Grier; "The Lion and the Cucumber" by The Vampire's Sound Incorporation; "Cissy Strut" by The Meters; and "Didn't I (Blow Your Mind This Time)" by The Delfonics.

Lee & Daniel are joined this week by the fantastic Mike Murphy of the Badasses, Boobs and Bodycounts podcast to talk about the 2007 David Fincher-directed "Zodiac". How accurate is it? Is it overrated? Does it work as a film as a whole? All these things and more are mulled over in this lengthy episode, including if the Zodiac was, in fact, Mike's dad. Also, Mike gets to play the Movie God Game, and the hosts talk about what they've watched as of late and respond to listener comments.

Lee and Daniel get closer to the end of this extend look at crime films by checking out two more Poliziotteschi films. First-up, they look at the mostly forgotten slow-burn from Romolo Guerrieri, "The Police Serve the Citizens?" (1973). Then they check out the action-packed Enzo G. Castellari film, "The Heroin Busters" (1977). Much of the talk of the latter surrounds Fabio Testi's amazing wardrobe and how the British have sex. Also: does your motorcycle have airbags? You might wish it did after listening to this conversation. What they've watched as of late, and listener comments are also covered.

This week Lee and Daniel conclude the podcast's first serious look at noir, neo-noir, and crime films in general, with Paul Thomas Anderson's "Inherent Vice", from 2014. Because Daniel is such a big fan of both director and author, the conversation gets in depth about PT Anderson and Thomas Pynchon. Lee and Daniel also converse about their different takes on the film and how it's held up for them with repeated viewings. Also discussed in some depth, in an effort to perv up the podcast's reputation a bit, the career of actress Michelle Sinclair, formerly known as the porn star Belladonna -- who had a minor role in the film -- is talked about. It's almost a mini bit of what the amazing Rialto Report does on a regular basis. Also covered: listener comments and what they've watched as of late.

Lee and Daniel are back again for what became a loaded two hours plus episode. Keeping on with their look into film noir, neo-noir and crime films in general, they check out two closely-connected thrillers, "The Lodger" (1944) and "Hangover Square" (1945). The conversation bleeds out into discussions of the other versions of "The Lodger", Jack the Ripper in fiction, and how films in the film noir genre from different decades have influenced future productions both in and outside the genre. They also talk about the remarkable Laird Cregar and Linda Darnell, and the sad, tragic ends to their short careers. Also covered: listener comments, shout-outs from other podcasters and what they've watched as of late.

Lee and Daniel continue their look into crime and noir films, and are joined by a special guest this week: writer and fellow podcaster Jack Graham, who writes the blog Shabogan Graffiti, and hosts his podcast, Shabcast, from there as well. This week the panel takes a look at two 1980s neo-noir films. First up is the tightly-written classic debut film from the Coen brothers, "Blood Simple" from 1984. Then the panel takes a VERY in-depth look at the twisted mysteries of David Lynch's "Blue Velvet" from 1986, where much of the BDSM imagery and themes are discussed. It turned out to be a very enlightening conversation.
