Episode 507: Southland Tales (2006)

Special Guest: Richard Kelly
Guest Co-Hosts: Rob St. Mary, David Kittredge

Southland Tales (2006) tells the sprawling story of a world in which alternative energy is a big business and teams up with the political police state. Meanwhile actor Boxer Santaros (Dwayne Johnson) has a schizophrenic break and thinks he's the character that he and part-time prophet/full time porn star Krista Now (Sarah Michelle Gellar) have created, Jericho Cane. Also in the mix are Roland and Ronald Taverner (Seann William Scott), a cop and his twin who may hold the secret to ending the world.

The episode features an interview with writer/director Richard Kelly.

David Kittredge and Rob St. Mary join Mike to discuss the various cuts of the film, Philip K. Dick, and much more.

  1. Okay, I'm only at minute 17:52 and pissed myself laughing at Mike clearly exasperated by Rob stating he has a 30 page manifesto of notes; and Mike's defeated, 'All right. Start at page one.' Gold.

  2. F the haters and their hate-bait. We appreciate you, Mike. And the interview was immensely satisfying fyi
