Episode 83 - The Quiet Pork Pie

Thanks to faithful listener Jason, we discovered something new and wonderful for the is episode of the podcast.  He turned us on to New Zealand director Geoff Murphy and suggested that we pair up two of his films. We start with 1981's Goodbye Pork Pie which follows a nutty young man named Jerry and his accidental companion John as the travel basically the entire length ( north to south ) of New Zealand in a bright yellow, stolen mini-cooper.  We think there's a lot more going on in the film that might appear at first glance and we talk quite a bit about our ideas. We follow that up with 1985's The Quiet Earth which is another in a proud history of post-apocalyptic tales.  This one does a lot of things differently however and really impressed us with it's craftsmanship as well as the arcs of it's main characters.  We were thrilled to get Jason's suggestions and hope that you will contribute yours to the cause as well.  Send your ideas, feedback, and naked photos to flickersfrom@yahoo.com or flickersfrom@gmail.com or post a message on our Facebook page.
