Dark Star / Cocaine Cowboys

Download MP3
Join Roger and Quentin as they revisit one of Roger’s favorite films, the 1974 cult classic Dark Star! Originally created by John Carpenter and Dan O’Bannon as a student film, buckle up for a ride amongst the stars as we follow a group of scientists on a mission to destroy unstable stellar bodies. Quentin and Roger discuss changing opinions from opening day, the impact the film had on future movies in the genre, and a beach ball alien.
 
Next, we’ll return to 1979 with Ulli Lommel’s cult film Cocaine Cowboys. A rock band is on the brink of superstardom, and all that stands in the way is a lost bag of cocaine worth two million dollars. Starring Jack Palance, Tom Sullivan, Suzanna Love, and…Andy Warhol? Quentin and Roger reveal the truth behind the scenes, Andy Warhol’s influences, a Pierre Trudeau connection, and how this true story made it onto the big screen.
