#213: The Fall / Kung Fu Panda / Man Who Fell to Earth / Top 5 Sydney Pollack Movies
From whirling dervishes to whirling red pandas (who sound an awful lot like Dustin Hoffman), this week Matty and Adam ogle a scrumptious smorgasbord of visual feasts with reviews of Tarsem Singh's "The Fall" and the latest offering from Dreamworks Animation, "Kung Fu Panda."
Not to be out done, Nicholas Roeg offers up his own complex cinematic intarsia featuring David Bowie as an alien hanging with Rip Torn, Candy Clark, and Buck Henry in 1976's "The Man Who Fell To Earth," the final movie in Filmspotting's '70s Sci-Fi Marathon.
Also on the show: Listener Feedback, Massacre Theatre, our Top 5 Sydney Pollack Movies -- a tribute to the late, great director -- and music by Austin Donohue.
