Lichman & Rizov “Live” at Grassroots Tavern: Episode 13 Part 1, “Lisa ’Fucking’ Schwarzbaum waits for no man at Cannes” with Glenn Kenny & Karina Longworth

Hello and welcome to one of our more epic episodes, which just happens to be lucky number 13.

Our chat wound up being split into three parts for a variety of reasons: drinking, rounds, shots, glass boots filled with viscous liquid. And then there was even discussion about something having to do with films.

I kid, but part one—in which your valued hirsute co-host is found—revolves around the 2008 Cannes Film Festival, the continuing discussion of James Gray’s Two Lovers, the pitfalls of staying at a fest like Cannes, and just what the heck all those press badges mean!

Of course, Vadim and myself have only been to Cannes if you count the time we got so hopped up on Aqua Velvas that we accosted Keith Gessen and his prick Harper’s Associate Editor friend outside of Odessa. And maybe it was more an unintentional harassment. I mean, Vadim and me are from THE SCARY INTERNET after all.

So we got two real experts: Karina Longworth (Spout) and Glenn Kenny (Some Came Running, formerly of a Downhill Film Magazine that is Nothing without Glenn but thinks lazy top 10 lists are notable) to come dish on the most famous festival this side of the Atlantic. In fact, the dishing went on for so long that the co-host with the least social tact (me) had to depart to wish his good friend a fond farewell back to the city of angels. So we split episode 13 into three parts!

Part One: this one!

Part Two: the next one!

Part Three: A SURPRISE!! (involving something to do with Roman Polanski.)

So we thank Glenn and Karina for stopping by. Join us next time for episode 14 when we’re joined by Michael Tully (not the pole jumper) and James M. Johnston (director, vegan and the FIRST advertiser for the podcast) as we discuss what is THE HAPPENING.

As always, if you see Vadim or myself at the bar, buy us a drink! Or come to Greenpoint and buy me a drink at the Boulevard Tavern. I’m not picky. John Lichman
