Lichman and Rizov “Live” at Grassroots Tavern: Season 6, Episode 3: “The Color Wheel Podcast”

Hello Atlantic Avenue!

We’re back with episode 3—which you’re going to hear first due to timeliness before Episode 2—and are joined at Grassroots Tavern by Alex Ross Perry, director of The Color Wheel, which premieres this Sunday at BAMcinemaFest. This is the second time we’ve had Perry on (the first for his feature Impolex, which you can download here) and we even allow him the distinct honor of rating us via the Pitchfork Scale.

But we do go into the nature of awkward party scenes, obscure references thanks to Chris “Wheels” Wells and a little into the Shaw Brothers’ The Boxer’s Omen. Regardless listen onward, mind the spoilers toward the end and do your damndest to get tickets to this Sunday’s screening. If you don’t, the gargoyles will cry and the dolphins will smile.

As always, if you see us at the bar or at the BAM, buy us a drink! Or a ticket! Or a meal! please.

Joe Swanberg ’s LOL: Looking at the Present, From the Outside In

There is a scene in the beginning of LOL that represents the film’s basic ideology: An unseen Internet user plays a video that a young woman has made, as she announces, “for you.” It would be easy to confuse the referent of “you” (her boyfriend) with the person directly addressed (whoever is actually watching). “This video is for your eyes only,” she tells the camera. She then proceeds to perform a striptease.
