They Must Be Destroyed On Sight!


TMBDOS! Episode 56: “Blood Simple” (1983) & “Blue Velvet” (1986).

March 28th, 2016

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.
