In this, the first of many specials, Conor and Luke discuss something that bothers us all, day-to-day, week-to-week, month-to-month and year-to-year. We’re talking of course, about Robots. From androids, to cyborgs, to Pet Man and Big Dog, we run the gambit of cybernetic scaries. Listen, worry and enjoy.
The Fifth of our Film Noir Specials brings us to the twilight years of the “classical” noir cycle with, Orson Welles’ Touch of Evil (1958). We also feature Hitchcock’s Psycho, which in many respects is a response to the technical excellence seen in Touch of Evil.
The second of our film noir discussions on Near Film with Helen Ryan. This week Conor and Luke discuss The Big Sleep, a classic of the form, featuring Bogart and Bacall and based on the novel of the same name by Raymond Chandler.
