Cinema Smorgasbord – Praising Kane – Laverne & Shirley (Season 8, Episode 8) & Strong Medicine (1981)

On this episode of PRAISING KANE we’re once again doubling up, starting with an episode of the eighth season of LAVERNE & SHIRLEY which is without Shirley, Lenny or Squiggy.. but we do have dog murder, Charles Fleischer and not much else, except Carol Kane as a streetwise fortune teller. We follow that with the 1981 film adaptation of Richard Foreman’s avant-garde play STRONG MEDICINE, steeped in the subject matter championed by his Ontological-Hysteric Theater. Hear us struggle with material we’re woefully out of step with! All that and the latest Carol Kane news. CHECK IT OUT.

Cinema Smorgasbord – Praising Kane – The Games of Countess Dolingen (1981)

We continue our chronological look at the career of Carol Kane on PRAISING KANE with the surreal 1981 French drama THE GAMES OF COUNTESS DOLINGEN, partially based on the works of Unica Zürn (with a bit of Bram Stoker thrown in for good measure). A complex, twisting and often quite shocking film, it puzzled and intrigued our hosts who came away from it with two very different perspectives, and sparked a conversation about how much knowledge (or research) should be expected from an audience before watching a film. It’s more fun that that sounds! CHECK IT OUT!
