281 – The Day of the Locust

Listen on the players above, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, or Spotify.

An expensive flop in its day, The Day of the Locust maintains a cult intrigue for its critique of Hollywood and descent into madness. It’s new for both of us, and we discuss the qualities its cast brings, what could be better about its industry commentary, its moments of surprisingly graphic violence, and who, or what, its titular locusts are.

With José Arroyo of First Impressions and Michael Glass of Writing About Film.
