Is she the spudman after all?Then it's time for a discussion of our favourite Highsmith menacing gay, Tom Ripley, and the latest Netflix iteration of the guy who "likes" "girls", from creator/writer Steve Zaillan.See AlsosThe Garden Against Time by Olivia LaingThe American Friend (1977) by Wim WendersThe Night OfAlso AlsosHere in the Pitch by Jessica PrattHacks season 3 (on Stan in Australia)Ed Ruscha / Now Then retrospective at LACMASoft Services Software UpdateVegethreads Organic classic TArchive No. 1 by Hattie Stewart (with an intro by Brodie!)

  • 96: Girlfriends (Toy Poodle) – re-release

    It was only a matter of time.In this re-release of a classic Poodle episode, Kate and Brodie come together to discuss Girlfriends, Claudia Weill's directorial debut from 1978, and an absolutely perfect film. Co-written by Vicki Polon, it starts Melanie Mayron as Susan Weinblatt, who has a perfect face and spends her days shooting bar mitzvahs and waiting for her big, artistic break in late-'70s New York City. When her best friend and roommate, Anne (Anita Skinner), a writer, gets married and moves out of their apartment, Susan searches for ways to repair her loneliness. She meets Eric (a hunky young Christopher Guest), grows close to Rabbi Aaron Gold (Eli Wallach), brings home a hitchhiker named Ceil (Amy Wright) and tries to bridge the distance by spending time upstate with Anne and her husband, Martin (Bob Balaban). A film about friendship, making art and platonic love, Girlfriends is so much more than the sum of its parts and a tidy plot summary.
