Cinema Smorgasbord – Bartel Me Something Good – Private Parts (1972)

We continue our chronological look at the career of the great Paul Bartel with his feature length debut PRIVATE PARTS from 1972. Equal parts perverse and hilarious, it’s a film that is filled with twists and turns and set the blueprint for much of what was to come from the always unpredictable director. We’re also looking at Bartel’s 1969 short film NAUGHTY NURSE, which showed that Bartel’s taste for boundary pushing was something that came about very early in his career.

Cinema Smorgasbord – Whatever Happened to Vic Diaz? – Beyond Atlantis (1973)

On the latest episode of WHATEVER HAPPENED TO VIC DIAZ? we’re going BEYOND ATLANTIS with Eddie Romero’s odd (sorta) undersea riff on The Treasure of the Sierra Madre featuring bug eyed Atlanteans, John Wayne’s kid, the great Sid Haig and – of course – VIC DIAZ! Along the way we talk about colonialism, Vietnam, go deep on Haig’s career and SO MUCH MORE. Check it out!

Which movie reigns supreme? Listen and find out!
