Episode 344: The Tenant (1976)

Guest Co-Hosts: Alex Winter, Jamey Duvall

#Shocktober2017 continues with a the 1976 film from Roman Polanski, The Tenant . Adapted from a book by (Fantastic Planet), the film also stars Polanski as Trelkovsky, a man in need of a new apartment. He finds one where the previous occupant has defenestrated herself. After her death, he's able to move in and finds that his neighbors don't like him being noisy... in fact, they don't like him being him at all. Some put this alongside Polanski's Repulsion and Rosemary's Baby as his “apartment trilogy” in which explores the terrors of urban paranoia.

Jamey Duvall of Movie Geeks United! and writer/director/actor Alex Winter join Mike to discuss what many consider to be Polanski's most personal film.

  1. "No one does it to you like Roman Polanski." Jesus, how that phrase's meaning has changed.
